Guilty Innocent Pleasures

There are so many joys that pregnancy brings with it: feeling the baby move for the first time, the anticipation of what this new little life will bring to the world, even the simplicity of strangers holding the door (when if it weren't for my protruding bump, they wouldn't give me the time of day). So yea, all of those things are great. But let me tell you about my current guilty innocent pleasure -- Shatto Strawberry Milk. This stuff is amazing. It's whole milk so if I weren't pregnant I might feel a little guilty about drinking it. I only have a few weeks left to...milk it for all it's worth (ha!) so I figure, what the heck, I'll enjoy it while I can.

And to think I started buying this stuff as a special treat for Logan...sad to say I now keep it towards the back of the refrigerator so he doesn't see it. And yes, that I do feel a little guilty about, but we'll keep that between us.

Beautiful Day : 027

Who would have thought you could play in rain boots, with sand tools and a watering can, in the snow...all at the same time.

Rules Are Made to Be Broken

Last week we finally decided to move Logan to his 'Big Boy Bed.' We made a big deal about it by setting up his new sheets and letting him help take his crib rail off and he has been pretty thrilled about it.

Once it was set up, on several occasions he would tell Jason and me, I just running out of energy and better lay down in my bed for a little while. Then he'd just go lie in his bed for 10 or 15 minutes just looking around. So funny!

He did great most of the week and enjoyed himself so much that he's slept in as late as 9:00 AM!

On the first night before he went to bed, I thought it'd be a good idea to mention a few of the rules of his new bed. Talking about rules and expectations is something we regularly do, so I thought he'd get the idea, but figured I may have to prompt him a little bit. I followed up by asking him if he knew the rules of his new bed and he abruptly cut me off very seriously. He monotonously recited the following:

No whining.
No running around my room.
No messing around.
No going outside my door.
No whining.
No jumping in my new bed.
No standing up.
No messing around.

I eventually had to cut him off to say goodnight because he kept going and going and going...

Okay, so maybe we have drilled the rules in his head a little too much? I'm not sure? But I do know that he is not familiar with the phrase, Rules Are Made to Be Broken...and for now, I think I'd like to keep it that way :)
