Just before dinner, we got a couple of boxes delivered to us, from Papa Bill & Nana. The kids were excited about the boxes. But, even more excited when they were opened. It was like Christmas around here. They were packed with adorable clothes. Our kids will be styling this summer! Gillian is really excited about her new golden yellow jelly sandals.
They got to wear their new jammies to bed tonight. They were pretty happy. Gillian was rolling around on her bed, giggling & said to me, "Mommy, look at me. I very happy right now." Her jammie set even has a tutu. Dreamy.
Speaking of bed. -We took a gutsy step forward last weekend & moved Peyton into the big kid's room. We had not been looking forward to this. Both of the kids were still waking in the night. Peyton would just wake & cry a few times a night. And Gillian usually has to get up to go potty at least once a night. And, Peyton has always been a pretty light sleeper.
We had no idea what was going to happen & if this would work or not. That first night was rather traumatic for Peyton. He screamed for a long time. He used to go to bed without crying at all. But, the next couple nights, we cried less. Tonight, he didn't cry! And, they were in there laughing & talking for a little while. It was pretty stinkn' cute.
Peyton doesn't really wake up anymore. It seems that it must be comforting for him to be in the room with his sister. He doesn't even wake up when she gets up to go to the bathroom.
So far, we are totally amazed & happy by how well this transition has gone.
