I try to keep a running notes page of cute and funny things Jack says or does and do one big update on here every six months or so. This story was one I didn't want to forget.

Jack is now sleeping in his big boy bed. We still rock him at night, but him in his bed before he is fully asleep. (Really, thinking we need to invest in another chair--one for Paxton and one for Jack.) When Ty is home Jack clings to him and insists that Daddy rocks. Ty has been gone a lot for work and fellowship interviews, so when he is home Jack is his constant companion.

Ty rocked him last night, put him in bed, and shut the door. He paused outside the door and immediately heard rustling. He opened the door to have Jack get back in bed and Jack was standing up, leaning against the side of his bed. Ty told him he needed to get back in bed and Jack responded by saying he was just talking to Jesus. Bless his heart! So, Ty told him to finish his prayer. "Dear God, Thank you for Mommy, Daddy and EMMA!" (Emma is his best friend at school.) Then Jack jumped back into bed. Silly, sweet boy!

I don't think he is old enough to be sneaky and use prayer as an excuse, but either way it worked. Haha.

These pictures aren't from last night, but from several days ago. Jack woke up in his bed in the best mood.

Jack is telling Nuts he can sleep on this pillow.

Big Boy Room

In preparing for Paxton's arrival, we knew we needed to move Jack out of the crib and transition him to a bed. I was not excited about this. Jack did great in his crib, but we didn't want to spend money on another crib when it wouldn't likely last long with Jack sleeping in it. But the idea of new big boy bedding got me on board!

Last weekend, Jack woke up and said that he didn't like his crib anymore. We took that as a sign to switch out beds and not wait any longer. Since we are losing our guest room with the addition of Paxton, Jack got the queen size guest bed. The room arrangement is a little odd with french doors and the short wall behind his chair, but we are making it work. We basically pretend there aren't french doors in the room, so Jack can't sneak outside. He was pretty excited about all the new bedding and new arrangement in his room. He has slept a week in his bed and it is going better than I could have ever imagined. I hope I'm not jinxing us!

We still have our rocker/recliner in Jack's room, but it will eventually move to Paxton's room. I also need to move some of his wall decor around, but who knows when that will happen!
