Celebrity Citing

and me without my camera! My girlfriend and I along with our youngest children attended the Baby Boom Show here in Ottawa yesterday. On our list of things to see and do we wanted to be sure to attend a presentation by Ann Douglas. We attended the Sunday morning "Top Mealtimes Parenting Problems Solved". Which was great. With the world first Breadatarian, I am always looking for new suggestions on getting a bigger variety of foods into him. As well as keeping him at the table (never thought to have a table toy for dinnertime, thanks Ann). We definately have lots of challenges ahead but, we will work on them one day at a time. It was great to see Ann, I am only sorry I didn't have my camera and didn't live close enough to a Starbucks to bring one along.

On a second note. We had our first official night in the Big Boy bed!! Although we have had both a crib and bed in his room since he was born, this was the first night that the crib was not in the room. I gave in and took it down yesterday, with tears in my eyes, but happy at the same time that I won't have to do the bed shuffle once a night now. We installed a safety deadbolt on the front door (he let the neighbour in on Saturday morning) so I would be able to sleep through the night myself. All went well, it may have helped that he did not have a nap yesterday so he was pretty tired. We just said that the crib was all gone and he had to sleep in his bed, he seemed ok with that. When I checked on him before our bedtime, he had crawled onto the floor and was sleeping soundly. I felt terrible, picked him up and snuggled him under the covers. Where he stayed until 6:45am!!!!! He has been getting up at 5:00am for the last two years. Ahhhh, will see what the rest of today brings, hoping there are still naps in our future.

What A big step For you and J. I'm sure he was well ready for it long before you were. It's hard we they make changes although I find it easier with Nathan than with Miranda although with the teenage stuff Miranda is going through I hope Nathan is easier. Now I know that first day of school is going to be a killer for me.

And You didn't take a famous Blogger a cup of Java? Tsk tsk> And Breaditatin! LMAO! Great word! Although i'm afraid I have the first offical one but we have moved on to Processed Cheeze and Bolonga (Mother shivering in her chair)

I live in hope that veggies will become his friends soon!

What a stellar sleep for your little one. Same here, the naps quickly diminished after the bed switch but the trade-off was two boys asleep by 7 instead of 8:30-9. Sure I missed my afternoon break, but quickly learned to appreciated the extended evenings. How was the next night??

Last night was great, as was yesterday. He went back to his usual two hour nap, dropped to sleep at 7pm and woke up at 5:45am! There was no sleeping on the floor this time. Both mornings he has gotten up and come into our room. He has never done that before when the crib was in there, so it is kinda strange. Yesterday it was a shocker, today I was ready :)

Anna - hoping there is a nap today too.

A Breadatarian! I like that! :-)

It was so cool seeing you again, Anna! And I was trying to remember your link last night when I was posting, but I was brain-dead. I will add it now!
