Nap Time

Since switching Austin to a toddler bed he has decided that he doesn't always want to take a nap. He still stays in his room for two hours for quiet time. Sometimes he does take a nap and then we let him stay up longer before bedtime. On days that he doesn't take a nap I usually open his room to find this...

One of Austin's favorite things to do is climb onto the couch and then onto the file cabinet. Then he jumps from the file cabinet onto the couch. It keeps him busy for a long time but every time he is about to jump he wants me to watch. Sometimes after he lands on the couch he says "Awesome" or "Whoa". Hopefully he'll just stick to jumping onto the couch. I don't want to see him try to jump off the table or the counter or my washer or dryer or our bed.

He has drool on his face because he was blowing raspberries...isn't he charming?

Happy Valentines Day

The Valentines Fairy came last night and brought Austin some candy. He was really excited about it. It looks like he will be having chocolate for breakfast today. It took him about half an hour to eat the entire thing and that is with me giving them to him one at a time. Happy Valentines Day!

 I don't know why he is raising his hand.

 Look at those dimples!

WHAT A MESS (and yes I yelled that)

Austin changed his diaper during his nap. Luckily it was only pee but then he decided to put Bag Balm on himself. I guess he felt like the rest of his room needed bag balm as well. He smeared an ENTIRE container all over EVERYTHING!!! His small little fingers got every last glob out of the jar. My eye is still twitching!!! I scrapped as much of it off everything as I could and then I ran hot hot hot water over things I could. I've found a way to get the rest out but it of course is a 10 step process. I'm trying to look on the bright side....he didn't eat any or put it in his hair and he didn't get into my fabric stash bin and my hands are really soft from scrubbing it off everything for the last hour.
