1. Ada got her ears pierced!!!!
|Sitting in the chair at Claire's waiting for the big moment- I'd told her it would hurt/sting/pinch, but she wasn't quite prepared. We were VERY close to walking out of the store with only one piercing that night!|
|This is after the fact, we were piddling around the store trying on goodies (hence the silly glasses)- she was trying so hard to be brave and smile pretty for the picture! I ADORE this photo. I adore her!|
2. Dax is sleeping in his big boy bed!!!
I need to post a picture, but Grams and PaPa got Dax bunk beds- they are so awesome!! So last Sunday Dax made the big transition from crib to bed.
It was a rocky start (lots of getting up, playing, acting silly)- I even found him in Ada's room at 3am one night playing. When I went to pick him up, he just looked at me and said "hhhiiiii!!!!!" like it was mid-day!
But after just a few days of relentlessly putting him back in bed every time he got out (with zero attention- except to repeat "STAY IN BED, DAX"), he is doing AWESOME! He just hops in bed, expects a little snuggle, and lays his head down. I love this picture-
And remember the roller coaster in Dax's room from MiMi & Steve? (Video is linked below) Imagine it is pitch black, and totally silent. I go to check on him (the monitor was on the fritz- but I've since fixed it so I can see his every move), and realize he's not in bed. At that moment, I hear him dismount his car on the roller coaster and begin his descent down the tracks. All I could hear is the rumble of the roller coaster and his giggles of pure joy! I could NOT help but crack up- I managed to keep it together until I sternly put him back in bed, though!
