Brian is growing up way too fast for me. We're at this major crossroad with him in a few different areas. Three major changes are coming and I don't know which one to do first. He's already moved into his big boy car seat, as you can see in the post below. Now we have to 1)move to the big boy bed, 2)take away the paci, and 3) potty train. Seriously - why are we running into these all at the same time for him? I really don't know which one we should do first. And to be quite honest, I don't really want to do any of them because that's just one step closer to not having a "baby" anymore. Don't get me wrong, I know Brian is far from a baby, but he's our last and I'm just sad to let go of these last glimpses of babyhood. I still struggle from time to time at that thought, but God is slowly giving me peace about it all, thankfully. So now as I look back at what I wrote, I think I should go in that order...bed, paci, potty. What do you think?

And of course I can't post about Brian without leaving you with a super-cute picture of him!

Jules, definitely do potty last. I think you could do the other two at the same time, though. But don't make it seem like a punishment that he has to leave the paci with the crib.

I don't have any I am probably not the one for advice, however I agree that the potty thing last is a good idea. That way you don't have to deal with the new bed/having accidents in the bed at the same time.

I am having the same dilema! Well, not exactly. Lucas has been in his twin bed for almost a year, but seeing I lay down with him, it makes it so much easier! Now I have the battle of paci, and potty. He is REALLY attached to the paci!!!

btw-Your kids are so dang CUTE!!!
