I'm ready to celebrate!

Well, we got Kadyn a plain old wood toddler bed yesterday. Came home and set it up after dinner. We put his Cars bedding on it and an hour or so later, I notice he's missing. We look and he put himself in his bed! Now, granted, his bed is our room but, if he's out of our bed, I'll take that for now!! He whined a little when he realized that he was staying in his bed but, once he fell asleep, he slept until 7:15 this morning!! And, he had no juice or water the whole time! He woke up at 7:15 and came and asked to lay with us. So, he laid down, went back to sleep and I got up for the day.

Tonight, Brian starts working nights for 4 months. He'll go in at 7pm and get off at 7am. It sucks but, he does get a shift differential for the night so, yeah. It's going to take a little while for Kadyn to get used to Brian being home but sleeping. He asks every morning to wake Daddy up so , it's going to be hard for a bit. We can't close the bedroom door because the cat box in in our bathroom and Brian doesn't want them locked in with him. So, yeah...

Anyhow, I had to share the news of our night last night and now am off for a coffee date with a friend! I'm going to post a few digi scrap layouts here in the next day or two as well!

Blog Makeover!

I have been itching and itching to make over my blog and I finally did it!! How cute is all this stuff?? I used the new Collab from Sunshine Studio Scraps. I think I'm in love. But, don't be surprised if it changes in a few weeks!! LOL I am going to start making myself layouts so that they're all ready to go.

We got our tax return on Wednesday! Thursday we went and did some of the shopping we've been talking about. I got a new laptop, and we got a new TV and stand for it. We've finally entered the digital age!! LOL We've been using Brian's 15 year old TV up until now. We may put it in our bedroom but, we're not sure yet.

We moved Kadyn's bed into his room a couple weeks ago and it did not go well! He was waking up 5 or 6 times a night, asking to watch TV or get into our bed. Then, Kadyn and I went with my mom and sister in law to Southern California for my cousin's baby shower and Kadyn and I had to share a bed so, he got used to that again. We did pick up a Cars bed set for him but, it doesn't go real well with his Elmo room! LOL So, tomorrow, we are going to go hunting and see if we can find a second hand toddler bed for him. We want something plain so that when he's over Cars, we can just change out his bedding. Then, we'll put the whole Elmo set on Ebay or Craigslist.

Well, the boys are sleeping on the couch and I am going to go sit down and watch more of the Olympics!
