Good Night from Peyton & Parker

(3/24/10 UPDATE: The boys are doing good in their new beds and we are all getting sleep at night. PTL! Peyton sleeps on the top bunk and Parker sleeps down below. The only downfall is they like to talk and laugh together before falling asleep. But at least they're happy and eventually fall asleep at a decent time. The first night Parker cried for a few minutes for his crib but after being reassured he's a big boy, he went on to sleep and hasn't mentioned the crib since that night. Sooner or later I'm sure they may have a rough night but for now all is well with this new sleeping arrangement.)

To make room for baby #3 we are now letting the boys share a room. Their new bunk beds and bedding arrived today and they are beyond thrilled! It should be an interesting night since they have never slept in the same room together and Parker's never been without his crib. Right now I'm hearing lots of giggling coming from their room. When we moved Peyton to his big boy bed it was a disaster so I'm preparing for the worst. Please Lord, let this 7 month pregnant Mom get some sleep this week.

Catching Up

Here are just a few things that we have been up to in the last week.

Peyton's been asking us to join him for lunch at school so I packed Parker's lunchbox and we headed up to Shiloh to meet Peyton and Josh. Parker always feels so big when he gets to see "Bubba's friends." These days, it's almost impossible to take a picture with them together without them making silly faces. I had really hoped for a much better picture this day. Maybe next time.
A couple days ago, Parker and I had lunch with some of my girlfriends at Jason's Deli. We get together about once a month and can have some girl time even with all our silly kids at the table. Here is Kelly, Harper, Ashley, Avery, Melissa, Julee, Jennifer and Brody. These are some of the sweetest girls you will ever meet.
Today, it was about 70 degrees outside. Parker insisted wearing this tank top all day which actually matched his shorts. He is really into dressing himself these days and I let him unless we are leaving the house. I could do a whole post on all his crazy mismatching outfits. But you gotta love him and this smile.
Peyton has learned to swing by himself. Here he is showing off his new skill in his favorite shirt that he thinks he has to wear everyday. I don't think I will be passing this striped shirt down to Parker just because I am so tired of seeing it.
Before we headed to Chick-fil-a today, I caught this child using the bathroom outside on a yellow painted line in our grass. I'm not sure why he thought it was necessary to take his underwear and shorts completely off but I guess this works. I'm so glad Parker is finally potty trained and I won't have two in diapers when #3 baby arrives. We're proud of you Parkerman!

It looks like tomorrow is going to be nice outside again and we're looking forward to enjoying the sunshine with Josh. Enjoy your weekend!
