Special Day









HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMMA!!!!!

You are such a blessing to our family and we're so thankful for you! You are an absolute joy and such a sweet "little" girl! I can't say little anymore now that you're 7! Time has surely flown by and I cannot wait to see how much you change next year.

4 days down!!!!

I am proud to report that Brian has been paci-free for four full days! And he's halfway through day five. On Friday when I put Brian down for his nap, I just never gave it to him. And he never asked for it. He talked for a few minutes and then fell asleep without incident. And the same thing happened again at bedtime. So I told Dave not to give it to him on Saturday at nap while I was at work. Not a problem. In fact the first time he asked for it was yesterday. It was while I was changing him and I'll admit, I panicked at first, not sure what to tell him. But I just said he didn't need it anymore, and he said "I'm big boy?" Yes, sir, you are. When he went to bed, he didn't even mention it.

I think I'd call that successful, wouldn't you?

We already had a plan in place. We were going to "forget" them at Grandma's house after our visit next week. I thought it was going to work just fine, and was looking forward to it. But, alas, he's one step ahead of me. I think I should get used to that!

The Girl Does It Again...



Found out last night at Emma's art show that she had been chosen to receive this award. The breakfast/ceremony was this morning. Oops. But nonetheless, this girl is awesome! This award is different than the "terrific kid" award. This award only goes to one student in the class who has displayed the key characteristics throughout the year. I tell you what - this girl is setting the bar high! Way to go Emma!!!
