First off, isn’t this the sweetest, most adorable picture ever? George put both kids in Emma’s bed the other day for a nap and I had to take a picture.
Its been just over 2 weeks now since we put Hudson in a toddler bed and Emma staying in her bed all night. Both transitions have been going better than expected, especially with Emma. A couple of nights she never even came into our room! Then sometimes she’ll come in once and want to give George a hug and then she goes back to bed all by herself.
George told her to stay in her room until it was light outside. So a couple of mornings I’ve gone in to find her blinds half open b/c she was checking to see if it was light out. How cute is that? It has been so nice to not sleep on the edge of my bed and not have elbows and feet in my back.
Hudson has been doing okay with his new bed too. The first couple of nights he constantly came out of his room but now that has stopped. The biggest obstacle is he likes to come in our room 4-4:30ish and I have to get up and put him back in his bed. Then it’s almost impossible for me to go back to sleep so I’m a tired cranky mommy. Last night was really bad. BOTH kids were up 3-5 times starting at 4am. Hopefully this phase will pass soon.
Tonight when Hudson was getting in bed he told me he wanted to sleep with his beep beeps. That’s fairly normal until he started lining every beep beep up in his bed that he could find. He was so happy so I let him keep them there. It was so cute.
Now for the super exciting news!
Barbra babysat for us Saturday night and she texted me that Hudson had went potty on the big boy potty. I was a little sad that I wasn’t there for it but that’s ok. So I decided to kind of go with it and not get my hopes up that he’ll be out of diapers next week. Isn’t he growing way too fast?
Anyways, he has gone pee pee several times for me this week. Emma is his biggest cheerleader and she cracks me up. She acts like his mother all the time and it’s so funny. I’ve started doing the M&M reward thing with him b/c that is what worked with Emma. So I said 3 M&Ms for pee and 5 for poop. Well Emma keeps insisting that he should go poop so he can get FIVE M&Ms. It’s killing her that he won’t go poop in the potty. ha! Somehow she thinks she gets a reward when he goes. Too funny.
I’m definitely not pushing him at this point to go. Since he’s in the nursery at school they don’t work on the whole potty thing. So it seems almost point less to really work on it right now. Fingers crossed though that it won’t be much longer. It’ll be so strange to stop buying diapers!
It is bedtime for me! I’m going on a girls beach trip to Gulf Shores tomorrow and I still haven’t packed! I’m excited b/c this is my first trip to Gulf Shores. Hopefully George will survive with the kiddos and animals. Happy Mother’s Day to me.
