sleep tight

Have I ever mentioned that Joey and Eli share a room except that they really don't? For the first 6 months Joey slept in a bassinet in our room, E had his room with the crib set up in it. Then we moved Joey over to his crib and we thought it was a good idea to have E just sleep in our room for a while until Joey started sleeping through the night. That was 8 months ago. Joey still doesn't sleep through the night (lay off perfect parents!) Eli falls asleep on my side of the bed, then we move him to a feather bed with his blankets (he has many that he is attached to) and stuffed animals of choice (his hippo and right now a basket full of pokemons). Just now, as I am working on editing and such, Dave asked me to come up and see Eli. On the way up, I asked if he had fallen of the bed, because I had heard a big thud a few minutes before. Dave wasn't sure, but this is what I saw:


I should be more embarrassed to show you that our son sleeps on a feather bed, but this was just too funny. The bed wasn't even laid out properly, it was still rolled up against the wall. He had fallen out of my bed and just wandered over to his "bed" and curled up. This is how we live. We'll figure it all out eventually.

On another note, we had pictures with the wonderful Miss Paige (you have to call her this when she is in photographer mode). It was so fun. Ben and Linds came along with little Josie. I think I finally won her over with a bag of popcorn (yes!). We went to Liberty Park, where they still have on old fair park ride area (I'm sure there is a real name here, but it isn't coming to me). This fantastic old carousel, a Ferris wheel that was in repair, cars to ride, sno cones. I can't wait to see Miss Paige's photos, but her are a few of mine (none of Joey, bad mom). When we left, Eli asked if Paige, Linds and Ben and Jose were coming over and Caroline said, "Mom, I like Josie!". Thanks Paige, I can't wait to see what you got, minus Eli's super model smile.



and this is my future daughter in law, I don't care which boy she marries. And I'll fight for her, I know she is in high demand!

It was a great time spent with some of my favorite people.

I stummbled across your blog somehow and thought I was reading about my little man in this post and your 'baby cakes' post... My son does also sleep in our room on a little made up bed most of the time with a selection of soft toys and a few blankets and goes to sleep on my side till I move him, and same with his head at birth, the walking at 9 months and then the running...
How old is your youngest? My son is my one and only, but he didn't start sleeping all through the night until he was a glorious 14 months old which his how he managed to stay in our room when he out grew the cradle and I couldn't be bothered dismantling the cot to move it... Hehe it might look strange to see a little bed made up at the end of ours but secretly I kind of like him being there...
