Crib tent

Last Wednesday Kingston climbed out of his crib for the first time. It was a very overwhelming thing for me. I'm just about 27 weeks pregnant and planning on 2 babies in cribs for about 6 months.... But nothing ever seems to be so easy does it?! So anyways, we bought a crib tent hearing nothing but good things about them. I was sad that we had to take it to that level but I was NOT ready to fight Kingston every night in a toddler bed. We got the tent on Friday and that night wasn't so bad, however, every other night and nap from then on have been HELL. I can handle crying and a little fight but Kingston would not only cry but the second we would put him in it he would jump up as fast as he could and try and Block the zipper so we couldn't do it up. He would even scream like he was scared for his life, a completely different scream then we have EVER heard. So last night after an hour of convincing I put him in, planning on not zipping it up, thinking maybe this will be better. The second I put him in I walked fast to the door to shut it and leave and as I'm shutting it I look and he has superman jumped out of the crib head first. That is not normal!!! This crib tent is either haunted or my poor little man has so much anxiety about it it's making him crazy. I hate the thought that I have been torturing him for the last week and didn't even realize it. So today I woke up feeling calm( which is a first since this has happened) and knowing that it was time for a full blown BIG BOY BED!!!! Well we've done it. Tonight my Kingston is officially sleeping in his own bed. Were starting out with just a mattress because he's such a crazy sleeper we thought we would start as low to the ground as possible. We went out and bought him cars bedding,which he picked out and he is NOW sleeping in his bed. I cannot believe it!!! I know the night probably isn't over but I think king will do better this way. And his bed is big enough so I can lay with him too:)
I have 13 weeks to get this under control before the new babes will be here and I will be successful!
This is such a bittersweet feeling for me. No more crib. My 16 month old is no longer a baby... I know I've said that before but NOW I'm serious!!! So sad!!! I don't want my baby to grow up this fast:(
time to go and check on him:) wish me luck with this new adventure!!!!

NOT tired!!

So both of my boys have been asleep since 915 and I'm literally trying to find things to do but I don't want to do anything and I've already cleaned the house(enough for the cleaners to come and finish the job). I went down stairs in my salon and was sweeping,for no reason at all and out of no where a HUGE 20 legged insect came full speed between my legs. For a second there I thought it came from my pants... But I came back to reality and it didn't!!! So I put my big girl pants on and destroyed it, maybe more then I needed too. But now all I want to do is clean my house even more. I'm not going to because like I said before, but it sure put the idea in my head!!! I also have this 1 lb 14oz give or take, little human in my body Trying to tell me something. He's such an active babe. I can't remember very well but I really think he might be more active then our lil king!! Yikes! Anyone who has had the pleasure to spend time with kingston knows that he is not your average 16 month old. He is honestly and truly the most active kid his age or even a little older that we've come in contact with. He has so much personality also it's so fun to watch. We take him to the gym and he starts lifting the weights, running on the treadmill, hanging from the bars, trying to push the sleds etc. It's endless what this kid will do. And he never stops... Until I make him, around 9 pm!!! And this kids smile is amazing, it makes all the crazy days worth it!!! Dave and I think about baby # 2 and people always say, well maybe this one will be more calm, but thinking about it we would never wish that upon king or our next one. King has so much life and you can see the adventure in his eye! He wants/ and will do it all. I wouldnt want him any other way! He's the most beautiful thing in the world!!!!
He knows all the animal sounds for horse, dog,goat, lamb, cow, tiger, pig and cat (kinda)
He says uh oh........ Uh uh
Dog.....do
Duck.......duh
Dada....... Flawless:)
Momma.........On occasion
Moon.......mooooo
What's that.....was dat
Jump.......jump
Let's go...... Go
Yah........da
I might be missing some but thanks to your baby can read and his momma, he also know how to do "arms up" touch his head, and knows where his mouth, hair and belly button are. Thanks to daddy he knows where his Wee wee is!!! He can wave, clap, jump, do the hot dog dance, kiss and give hugs. And he HAS to feed himself! We feel so blessed to have such a fun active boy. I can't wait to see what else is in store.....
Ok my random blab sesh is over!!!! Night

Gratitude

Im laying in bed and reflecting on this last year, seeing as it's my birthday tomorrow, and I can't help but be thankful for where I am in life! I have a husband who I adore and love so much and I have this lil handsome who has totally changed and completed our lives. Feeling complete as it is, another baby will be joining our family in 3 months. I always hoped by 26 I would be where I am but the reality of it is a bit overwhelming. I'm thankful for my past that has brought me to where I am now and I'm excited for the future and what it holds. I'm thankful for my life and I'm especially thankful for the sexy men( yes Kingston is sexy) in my life. Growing up isn't so bad!!! Here's to another great year!!
