Toddler Bed

Yesterday while I was fixing Kyndal's hair, Craig came in and said when are we going to change Anna Claire to the toddler bed.  I said lets wait a while longer.  She is pretty strong willed, so I'm thinking a toddler bed could be a challenge.  Then Kyndal says well the other night after you put us to bed Anna Claire was hanging halfway out of her bed.  I said why didn't you tell us that.  She said, I didn't know you wanted me too.  Silly girl.

Sooo, last night after church, Craig changed her crib to a toddler bed.  Sniff, sniff!  I'm not really too sentimental, but she is our last baby!

It took her over and hour and a half to go to sleep.  There was much getting up and down, whining, crying, talking, playing, anything other than falling asleep.  She finally went to sleep though.  She got up about 7 this am and was calling me and Abby and Kyndal got up and got in bed with her.

I told Craig this morning that nap time was probably over for her, because I thought it would be close to impossible to get her to lay down and sleep during the day.  She usually cries just a little bit when I lay her down at nap time.  She cried and got up but actually got back in HER bed and went to sleep.  YEAHHHHHH, I was soooooooo not ready for no more naps!  Hopefully tonight will go that smoothly.

KFF 2012

Our church along with 10 other churches in the community had a 1 day VBS, called Kingdom Fun Festival, open to all the community today.  It was SUPER hot, but it was really good.  The pastors put it all together and they did a really great job.  Several members from all the churches came out to help as well.

This was at the end and she was so hot and tired.
So was she, but they both had a great time!
O how I love these people!

Anna Claire and I only stayed for about 45 minutes of the beginning and 45 minutes of the end.  It was just too hot out there for her.  I got the pics at the end when we came back, so a few booths had shut down already and I didn't get pics.  It was really a great day!

2 year old check up

Last Thursday Anna Claire had her 2 year old check up.  She got one shot and didn't shed a tear.  She weighs 25 lbs and 2 oz which is 45th percentile.  She is 33.3 in long which is 30th percentile.  Her overall BMI was in the 60th percentile, so her dr. was happy with that.

I didn't get any pictures of her there, which I really should have of her and Dr. Williams, but I didn't think about until we were gone. 

Her hair has grown out alot since we got it cut so short.  The longer it gets, the more she twists little knots into it.  I even had to cut one out last week.  I can't wait until she breaks that bad habit.

Quick trip

Last Thursday Anna Claire had a morning appointment in Opelika and it's only 2 hours from B'ham, so we packed our things and headed home for a quick visit.  We were hoping to meet little Maddox, but he still hasn't made his arrival. 

Once we got into town, we ran some errands with Eron and Marley and then went to my moms for dinner.  We went to Ella's ballgame, but didn't get to stay for all of it, because it was lightening and it was getting so late.

Friday, the girls played at Marley's, we met GiGi for lunch, had Yogurt Mountain with Lindy, Ella, and Wyatt.  Ella came back to Eron's with us to play for the afternoon.  Then we had dinner at my brother's and all the kids swam.  It was a fun and busy day.

Saturday, we went to breakfast with mom, Eron, Marley, Greatgran, and Pa.  We waited for our food for over an hour (a bit annoying, but good time to talk and such).  Then the girls and I headed back home.  I figured I would get a call Sunday saying Maddox was coming, but he is still baking.  Can't wait to meet him.

Can you hear that???

Kyndal napping!

Anna Claire napping!

Craig and Abby were napping in another room too.  This was about a week ago.  It was after a few busy days, and they all sacked out!  It was quite in here!!!!!!!  I soaked up the silence!

PCB 2012 (Part 3)

So Tuesday, we did lots more swimming, while some went to the beach.  That afternoon, we got ready and went to Pier Park to have some fun.  Eron and Marley came with us.  After the park, we went to Pineapple Willy's for some dinner, then to the beach to take pictures.  Once we got back home, Eron and I went out for some yogurt by ourselves.  On Wednesday, my family, my brother's family, Eron and Marley, and my grandparents all headed back home.  I'm sure it was real quiet around there once we all left.  We had a really great trip, making lots of wonderful memories with our wonderful family! 
That's Craig and Abby up at the top!
This ride slung her all over that seat.  To say I was a nervous wreck is an understatement!
This was everyone minus GiGi who was taking the picture!

Great memories!!!
