The Amazing Emily

Well this post is a shout-out to baby girl. The youngest of our clan is proving to be a very resilient kid. About a month and a half ago our fabulous babysitter Casey came over. She brought Emily downstairs with her pacifier in and then forgot it on the kitchen counter at bedtime. Not realizing it was part of the bedtime routine, she put "Mimi" to sleep without it. By the time we got home, Emily was asleep. We never looked back. There were a few sad nights and a long afternoon or two or ten but she handled it well. We gave her about two weeks on that and then moved her into her toddler bed. Again, a little crying but within 3 days she was staying in it, start to finish, every time. Finally, on Saturday night we moved her toddler bed into Hannah's room. The first night was a bust but last night she did it! Both girls love it. Morning routine will be interesting as Hannah is an early-riser and Emily is a late sleeper but I am proud of my girls! There is nothing sweeter than hearing your oldest in the monitor saying, "It's okay, Mimi. I'm right here. It's time to go to sleep. Lay down in your bed." :)

That is so precious!! Brynn and Addie share a room and it is funny to listen to them. Brynn is always talking to Addie.

That is the most precious thing ever! I'm praying that MBs transition to toddler bed goes smooth and the adjustment to having Jackson in the same room too.

That is to precious... The boys have always shared a room and there are times I hate it and then there are times I just love to hear them talk to each other... esp when the laughter starts..
