Independence Day

This actually took place on the 1st of July, but I feel it’s a noteworthy step in the life of the boys.

Big Boy Beds!

They’ve been doing a some fairly dangerous moves in their ribs as of late (jumping off the rails comes to mind) so we figured the time had come.

When the boxes arrived on Friday night we wasted no time getting them set up. There was no fanfare, no big fuss. We kind of threw it all together right at bedtime and the boys really took it in stride. Lincoln spent some time jumping on his for a few minutes, we read some stories and sang some songs and then we put up the baby gate and turned off the lights.

About an hour later I could hear snoring and someone moving around. In the dark I could make out a figure sitting at the head of Wyatt’s bed.

I grabbed my camera, put it on the night time setting and aimed it at the bed.

Wyatt sleeps, Lincoln hams it up

    Reminds me of my little boys.. so sweet. Now they're all grown up. I'm so glad they turn out to be sweet and caring individuals. They just got me a massage deal the other day from http://www.dailyminnepolis.com
