just his random cuteness with his new flashlight firetruck from auntie april sleeping in his own bed for his nap all by himself like a BIG BOY!!! enjoying the nice spring weather we had (that is now GONE) updated pic of our house thats all framed! he had been sick and decided this was the comfortable way to sleep on the couch that night :)
well now that landen is TWO i figured i need to really get firm and teach him to take his naps in his own bed and get him to go to sleep at night without me or joe having to lay in there with him for half an hour. so yesterday i started being a mean mom and sticking him in his bed and taking him back there a zillion times after he keeps getting up. so he ended up not taking a nap at all yesterday. and then bedtime was over two hours worth of getting up and me putting him back. today for nap i put him in there and hid in his room behind his desk. so id put him back in the bed as soon as he'd hit the ground. i think he started to realize i was over there (even though he couldnt see me) and after only half an hour he actually stayed in his bed and took a nap!!!!! he's been in there asleep for about an hour now too! i even took pics to prove it :) besides that things are going good here. im only babysitting three kids now instead of six. those extra three older kids were just too much for me so i told the parents i couldnt do it anymore. i really enjoy only havin a couple extra kids around rather than a full blown daycare. the house is coming along good, got it all framed and are starting the plumbing and electrical stuff. joe's knee is healing well and he's doing physical therapy three times a week now too. he actually drove himself to therapy yesterday and made it all the way to blockbuster today! well thats about all i have to report here. pics to come shortly (the site wouldnt let me add them at the moment)
This is me: im still living in the same town i was born in and loving it. im happily married to my awesome hubby joe and we have three adorable kids. two boys and a red head girl right in the middle. life is going great and i couldnt be happier with who i have become and where im at!
