toddler beds and baby names

Yesterday (08.29.10) morning after Jacob woke up we took down his crib side rail and put up the toddler side rail instead. This gave him the morning to get used to his new bed and allowed us to trial the toddler bed at nap time instead of bedtime.

During his nap, he stayed in his bed for a short time before he got out and collected all of his "friends" (blankets, animals, etc) and laid down on the floor by his bedroom door. He eventually fell asleep there after playing with the door stopper for awhile.

Last night he did much better. He stayed in his bed most of the night, much to my surprise! The last time I got up and peeked on the monitor was 0530 and he was still asleep in bed. By 0815 when I got up, he was back on the floor sleeping by the door with only his cross and pacifier with him. Improvements :-)

So far, so good on the transition. And so far there have been no messes for me to clean up! I was highly anticipating him emptying out his dresser with his new found freedom. I'm sure that's to come, though!!

Yesterday I also compiled a list of names online that either Matt or myself like. If you didn't already get this in an email or through facebook, you can go to this link and vote yes or no for some of the names we're considering. Feel free, also, to leave us other suggestions! We are having a terrible time naming this baby!

In other news:

- We sold my Honda :-( We purchased a 2006 Dodge Caravan in its place. I am officially a mom now! I have to admit, much as I LOVED my Honda, I really like driving the van. Yup, I just turned 40.
- Jacob got his hair cut again yesterday. It looks really cute. We took him to SportClips because we had a free haircut from his library summer reading program.
- We have now purchased everything we need for #2. We also just bought some baby washcloths which we are going to use as cloth wipes. We are both really excited for this! We're always looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly. Not only that, but it will save us a ton of money from buying wipes all the time. We tried it once before and didn't like it but I think we're both ready for this step now and are going to do it a bit differently this time.
- Only 5.5 weeks until Baby is due. Crazy!!! There is so much to do in the meantime!

just because he's so cute... (he makes this face anytime I get out the camera)

sad to see the honda go :-(
