Like his older brother, Adam slept in the crib only a handful of times. Before too long we decided to get rid of the crib and get a toddler bed for Adam to sleep in. There is not much difference in size between a toddler bed and a crib (they use the same mattress) so they still fit the the room well. Then surprise! Tony blessed us with his arrival.
Ryan and Adam love the new bunk bed. It helps that gran gran bought them new "Cars" sheets and blankets for the bed. In fact, Ryan and Adam are even sleeping without their favorite blankets from when they were babies which has not often happened before. Surprisingly, Ryan was at first afraid to sleep up top (perhaps from a trip to the city where the hotel had bunkbeds which were VERY high and had a traditional ladder that had steep steps) and so Adam took the top bunk. But Ryan has already laid his fear to rest and we have decided that we will swap who sleeps where, once a week.

gratuitous shot of one kid at least
Littlest man age 1 with Morris the Moose
It's been a long while since I've blogged here. Having three young children in the house does not allow a lot of free time but I'm starting to develop some sort of a pattern again. I've started a blog dedicated to the things I am doing with the kids that are educational/fun/learning related. But in some of my time to websurf and read blogs, I've been following the journey of a young mother in a similar (not identical) situation as me and she is very inspiring to me how she goes about her day and her admitted struggles with things. I thought I'd like to join her and hopefully encourage each other especially when we need it the most. You can find her at Chasing Babies...Growing in Grace. While I enjoy most everything she blogs about- I am currently very inspired and feel a calling towards her Suzy Homemaker series.
Hopefully, through out the spring and into the summer I will also share some of our adventures in CSA gardening for a 2nd summer. And hopefully some success as I try to shed the baby weight that never really went away/ snuck back on after littlest man was born.
