Well, it looks like Cindy got to Alabama just in time! Jess went into labor not long after she arrived…

Happy Birthday “Baby Oz” 🙂

Well, not exactly: more like “converted” beds. A couple of days ago, I converted the boys cribs to toddler beds. We figured they were ready for the increased freedom the change would provide. After all, Adam was already climbing in and out of his crib at will, so this would actually make it a little safer for him.

Adams new bed

Adam took to the new arrangement right away; Alex, on the other hand, didn’t seem to care much for the change. The past two nights he wouldn’t settle down and go to sleep. Cindy ended up putting him in the Pack-n-Play, which did the trick.

So, I dis-converted (is that a word?) Alex’s toddler bed to a crib. The result? He was fine.

Alex is not a big fan of change.

Alex sleeps

Close your eyes and you will see
Micro-flashing neon lights
Open your eyes and you will see
It still looks like the same thing

Lie and wait for sleep and listen
To your heart beat too fast for sleep
Close your eyes and you will see
The sound asleep

I want to go, I want to go
I want to go down to go to sleep
Your frame of reference
Is my swimming pool

My, my swimming pool
Still looks like the China sea
Pool to sea and finally
The sound asleep

Feel the muscles in your face
Twitch, relax, remembering
Everything that went down and will go down
I want to go down to sleep

Insomnia, no sleep disease
Petties parking, feed me please
Lie and wait for sleep and listen
To your heart beat too fast for sleep

Get set…


Jumping the Gun

Extremely competitive, Adam tears out of the gate and immediately takes the lead, leaving Alex in the dust (not that Alex really cares).

“I will pick up the hook
You will see something new.
Two things. And I call them
Thing One and Thing Two.
These Things will not bite you.
They want to have fun.”
Then, out of the box
Came Thing Two and Thing One!
