Big Kid Bed

Well, Elliott is graduating up to a big kid bed in the next few weeks. For the past few days I've seen him experimenting with putting his foot on the edge of his crib. Yesterday Dan saw it and said Elliott was "practicing" his escape. So, we went out and go E a big bed. Much debate over getting a twin v. a full/queen. The twin size won out in the end. For the time being Elliott is sleeping in his port-a-crib because the sides are too high to climb out of. I can't say I'm looking forward to teaching Elliott how to stay in his bed at night. It's nice to put him in his crib and walk away when necessary. Nap and bed time just might get harder...

I mentioned that Dan and I were going to the beach, baby free! We had a great time with out friends. Of course, we both missed Elliott. But, it was really nice to have the time away from him to just be ourselves again. Unfortunately, I got sick on Saturday night and have still been fighting the cold...10 days later. Guess that's what happens when you are on immune suppressors. :(

Shopping Carts

When Elliott and I go grocery shopping he is more often than not unhappy in the cart. I can understand why. At the same time there is so much to look at in the grocery store I do wish that he would just "suck it up" and be good!

However, his cart at home...you can't keep him out of it.

I just had to take it away from him for a couple of days because he decided it was a good idea to stand in it and rock back and forth (multiple times). Smart thinking, kid!

In other news...Dan and I are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary this week! I can't believe it has been 5 years already. It doesn't seem like it could have been that long. We are leaving on Thursday to go to the beach with friends. Elliott is coming down with us for one night then Chris and Larry are watching him the rest of the weekend. We are very excited to have a whole weekend of sleeping in and hanging out with friends without having to worry about Elliott.
