Boy oh Boy!

Life with my boys can be challenging, times when you can't wait for bed time, and then there are times like this....  My two smiling boys!  And who said boys can't be stylish?!



The month of January cannot be over soon enough!  The beginning tell almost the 24th has been filled with puke, snot, tons of tissues, and loads of disgusting diapers!  But, one thing great this month...My Bubsy turned 4 and and my Squirmy turned 3 months!  They are both reaching so many different milestones and surprising me everyday.

Will has become the social butterfly of his class.  He is very articulate.  Kinda stubborn at times.  Still loving trains.  Has a superb memory!  Tells the funniest stories.  Loves going to school.  Is very independent.  Knows how to work the computer...sometimes a good thing and a bad thing.  He is still my sweet boy and surprises me with loving words all the time.  Can't believe he is four!

My little baby Eli.  This pneumonia really screwed up his sleeping schedule.  He was on a roll.  Napping great.  It might have been in his swing but he was doing amazing.  Falling asleep with me rocking him at night around 8:30 and sleeping tell 5:00.  It was amazing!  But, since he was so sick and up coughing at night, his little body is having a hard time re-adjusting.  I am currently reading, Healthy Baby, Happy Baby.  Which focuses on their sleeping patterns and getting them on a schedule.  I am hoping that by next week, I can get him in his crib and getting him to fall asleep without me rocking.  I do love snuggling with him but, he has to learn eventually.  We feberized Will around 4 months to get him into his crib, and by day 3 he was falling asleep on his own and sleeping through the night.  This book has the same approach but goes a bit more into detail.  Onto milestones for my little guy.  He is almost rolling over.  He loves his daddy, so much!  He knows who Mommy and Daddy are.  Giggles when we fly him in the air.  Loves playing under his little jungle gym and is definitely showing interest in some of his toys.  Hates hats!!  Loves to fall asleep to white noise or   Adele on Pandora.  Growing out of a lot of the 3 month clothing!  I am going to have to go shopping because Will's next set of clothing was spring/summer.  So we might have some issues fitting into things.  I am totally okay with that because the Baby Gap has some seriously cute things on sale right now!

I am hoping to get a new design for the blog.  The jungle theme, kinda got old.  As much as I love the scrapbook look, I am going to change as the blogging world changes.  Simple and unique is what I am looking for.  If you have any ideas, I would love to hear them!

Happy birthday to Will! And I can't believe Eli is 3 months already---I hate that he's been so sick. They are so sad and pitiful...it doesn't seem fair!

Goodness how quickly they grow! Your little guy is a chunkaroo - love that! I taught my kids to sleep alone early on too. I'm cranky when I'm tired, so it was best that way. ;)
