Our Newest Addition...


The labor was intense and took longer than either of us expected.  But it was well worth it in the end.  Because now the boys have a new...


...bunkbed.  
Okay, so I know that was kind of mean, but I'm still pregnant.  Snake is still waiting to make his grand appearance.  But back to the boys' new bunkbed.  Tim has been working on it for a while and it is finally complete.  Our painted walls are a different story.

Last night was Matthew and James' first night sharing a room.  James was way too excited about this and spazzed out for a few hours.  Matthew yelled at him the whole time.  Did you know that you have to wake up at 2:00 in the morning for kindergarten?  Me neither, but apparently that's what time Matthew has to be up by.  Finally James fell asleep around 11:00.  Then around 1:15 he fell out of his bed and cried.  Sometime between 2 and 3 we heard a bump and a small cry, but after that it was quiet.  Around 4:15 he started crying, which woke Matthew up.  We then had to coax Matthew to stay in his bed.  Around 6:15, James fell out of his bed again.  Unfortunately, less than 30 minutes later he was getting up with me and is a tiny bit cranky.  I'm not sure why.  Matthew, on the other hand, has been delightful.

Here are the two cute boys, excited for their first night in their new room.  Considering it was James' first time in a big boy bed and Matthew's first night in his own room in, I am ashamed to admit this, years, they did really good.  

Hopefully, my next post will be announcing Snake's arrival.  Stay tuned...

PS - one tip is to put the mattress on the floor for a few days while James figures out how to not roll around as much. Once he masters sleeping in place he can graduate to the box spring. That worked for some of my kids. Molly still falls out every once in a while. That will be exciting when she's married.

Delaney only ever fell out once...and Holly has too. How could Holly fall off the bed you ask? I was nursing her the other night and fell asleep. The loud thud woke me up after she fell on the floor from our bed. I felt so bad.

The boys look so cute!! Remember Snake, you need to wait until grandma gets there.

Delaney misses James. She asked me today if we could go see James ("alziwaka gocee James?" I told her I was sorry but we couldn't. Then she said "okay...Mafew?")

So funny! We are going through a similar process at our house minus the 2 AM kindergarten wake up time :)

James sleeps on the bottom bed, so it's not that far. And we put pillows on the floor around him. But last night he didn't fall out once. Progress? Maybe.

I know, I know. I am just giving you a hard time.

I came back to visit the bed. I love it.
