second day of school

Emma had her second day of school today. She cried when I left, but the teacher said she only cried for a little bit. It was a much better day than last Friday. She picked out her clothes this morning and was really excited to wear her new boots.

She brought me home two paintings. I was bummed I didn’t get any last week, which I’m assuming was because she was crying.

we have a climber

We talked about climbing out of the crib over and over again yesterday. Emma kept repeating that she stays in the crib and just calls me. No climbing out. Not even a minute after I put her in last night she climbed out. We went through months and months of no problems at bedtime, but now she gets a death grip on my neck when I try to put her down and screams. Not fun.

After I put her back in the crib Braden came in and gave her some books in her crib and left the bathroom light on so she could read.

She sat in her crib and read for a long time. When she was done she called for daddy to come tuck her in.

She ended up falling asleep and only waking up once at 2:30 AM. We left her bedroom door open a little bit so when she called me I just yelled back to her. She rolled over and went back to sleep. This morning when she got up at 6:15 she swung her leg over the side, but I yelled to her to stay there and she did until I came to get her. All in all it was a pretty successful night¬†compared to the night before. Lets hope we can keep this up…

zoo monday

Now that Emma is in school we have scheduled activities Tuesday through Friday. That means Monday is our only day for something with just the two of us.  Today we decided to go to the zoo.

On our way home we picked up Chik-Fil-A for lunch. Emma got her honey for chicken nuggets.


As a fun ending to our Monday… Emma climbed out of her crib at bedtime… twice. We are planning to transition her to a big bed so the baby can have the crib, but were putting it off since she wasn’t getting out of the crib. We may have to rethink that. She may be in a big girl bed sooner than later.
