The Rest of Christmas

Now that I have a little time I'm actually going to dump my memory cards and get caught up on the last five months :)

A session of my boy!

That's right, you heard it. This is a complete session that I finally got around to editing 100% of my little stud. I swear sometimes (all the time) Hayes gets the shaft when it comes to real sessions. The one person I love to take pictures of the most is the one person that never gets more than a random picture here and there. Because I do it all the time for other people it is hard for me to remember to grab out my nice camera and take some picture for myself. Well, here you go little Hayes. I think we captured your personality perfectly!

Anyone else missing Summer?

Underwear and a big boy bed!

What do you get when you take a two and a half year old out from behind bars? NO SLEEP!

A couple months ago we tackled the transition from Hayes' crib to a big boy bed. We knew what we were getting ourselves into way before we did it. This kid is definitely not a sleeper so giving him the freedom of escaping those crib bars is a scary job that we are still paying for. He still has the hardest time falling asleep and often makes a 3:00 am trip to our bed (which means we take a 3:01 trip with back to his bed). Last night was especially bad as he cried for an hour and a half, "I don't want my bedroom. I want downstairs. I need to go potty. I need to brush my teeth. I want mom. I want dad. I don't want my bedroom, no, no, nope".

At least he was excited for a minute when we first got his bed set up...

After we made the bed switch we decided to tackle the potty training too. I do have to say Hayes has been hard doing a lot of things, but potty training really wasn't all that bad. We did the three day potty training where you don't go anywhere for three days and don't say anything but positive things the entire time and it seemed to work for him.

 This is him after I asked him to show me his big boy moves. Now it is impossible to find pants that stay on his skinny little butt!

 Love our big boy!
