Bellies, Beds, & Birthdays

33 Weeks already! Brighton has found a new hiding spot from me :) This baby will be here anytime within a month!!

Brighton turned 2 yesterday! He was so excited about his "Happy Day" He wore his birthday crown and sticker all during Daycare and brought blue and red cookies to share.

When he woke up we brought up his new bed into his new room to Celebrate.

Here is Brighton getting ready to take his first nap into his new bed. He came out twice telling me that he "wake up". After the second time I told him he had to stay there and not come out anymore. He stayed in his room yelling, "Mommy, COME HERE NOW!" over and over. After awhile he started reading a book and playing around a bit, all was quiet after about 45 minutes.

I snuck in to check on him and found the little one snoozing away. What a good boy!
Even after a successful nap I was still very nervous for bed time. Chris and I read to him and tucked him in. Chris stayed a little longer in the room. Brighton told him "Stay Here" but Chris explained that he needed to leave. He left the room and shut the door. We put a gate up on the top of the stairs in case he got up in the night and left our room open. I didn't sleep very well listening and waiting. I even left for work and he was still not up. Chris texted me and told me that when Brighton woke up he was whining from his room wanted to watch AstroBoy but he didn't get out of bed until Chris walked into the room. For his nap today he didn't get up once and went right down. I really had different expectations for Brighton's transition into his big boy bed, but so far so good! I'm sure we will have the long nights when he crawls out to see us but we are very excited about his progress so far.

Brighton and Madison have the same Birthday. She turned 7 yesterday. For their birthdays we went to a pizza buffet/arcade.

All the Birds and our Pizza. Stephen was taking the picture.

I am so proud of my little boy. He has learned so much in two years and is the most wonderful kid ever. I just love him more and more everyday!
