Sleeping in the buff.

Quick story.....

Cavan and I put Leah down for bed tonight and about 45 minutes later I checked the monitor to see if she was sleeping.  I did a double take as the only thing I could make out was a bare naked bum.  Oh no!!  I showed Cavan, grabbed the video camera, and ran upstairs.  I woke her up, and she sat up quickly and shouted, "YELLOW, BLACK!!!"  Haha, what???  She then looked at her exposed body and said, "Ut Oh, diaper?".

Oh goodness Leah... we love you.  I can't wait to show you that video when you get older!

Big girl updates!

Since I have been busy making an entire new blog.. I never updated some HUGE news!  Leah is in a big girl bed!  Last week Thursday I went upstairs to get her from a nap, and she was on top of her crib, climbing out.  We scrambled to get her toddler bed together, and were a little nervous on how she would do.  She did GREAT!  She is honestly doing so well.  It's like nothing changed.  Anyone who knows Leah, knows how routine oriented she is.  This is a huge deal for her!

We've gone to the park a few times in the last week.  It was so much fun.  Leah enjoys going down the slides.  She climbs up them all by herself.  I cannot believe how big she is!  She even went down the "big kid slide".  She is still not too fond of the swings, but we're getting there.

Yesterday, she decided not to nap... We let her play around in her room, and got her two hours later.  She thought it was great until she fell asleep on the living room floor around 3:30pm.  We didn't want her to sleep too long, so we talked and didn't be very quiet.. well, she ended up sleeping through everything and slept an entire hour.  We took advantage of the cuteness and took a video and lots of pictures.

Brayden is doing great.  He loves playing with his toes!  He is working on sitting up by himself.  The longest he has gone was about 20 seconds.  Slowly but surely.  He is starting to get more consistent at naps, but of course, as I am typing this.. he should be napping.  I cannot believe he is almost 6 months old.  We always tell him how amazing he is... really, we do.  He is a happy, outgoing, and sweet tempered baby.  He is more ticklish than any person I know, and loves to laugh.

If you haven't already, please follow my blog on the right corner.  It's very easy!

And... don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY!!

Here I am... starting a new blog.  It's bittersweet.  I started my old blog two years ago.  I love that blog.  Yet I also realize things change, they grow, and become better, stronger, and improved.  So... my new blog.  Wiggles then Giggles - Appropriately named, if you ask me.  The Wiggles (Payton and Delko) are our Australian Shepherds... they don't have tails, so instead of wagging, they wiggle.  The Giggles (Leah and Brayden) are our little blessings.  I cannot begin to tell you how much they have brought to our lives.  They are amazing.  Leah is now two years old, and Brayden is almost 6 months old and I cannot believe how fast they have grown.  Please follow my new blog!  I would love to have all my followers back (and then some!).

So... to kick off the new blog.  How about a giveaway??  Leah-Beah was started by my mother over a year ago.  She has an amazing talent in sewing.  She makes Beah Straps, Security Blankets, Beah Blankets, and Mommy and Me Aprons are in the works.  Beah Straps are amazing little straps that velcro on one end to a sippy cup, toy, or blanket and attach with velcro on the other end to a stroller, high chair, or car seat.  You know the game... I throw it, Mommy picks it up???  Well, not any more!!!  Beah Blankets are amazing... the quality is flawless.  They have different tabs, textures, and colors.  Leah loved them as a baby, and still loves her's to this day!  Brayden is at the perfect age for it.  Tummy time, rolling over, and play time always include his Beah Blanket. They make amazing baby shower gifts as well....
