I am Lame

Happy Halloween!
As I was taking off Taydens costume this year, I said to myself... "Shoot, I did not take one picture!". However, he looked much like this:

Add a few blackout lines under the eyes, and an orange hoodie underneath for warmth and voila...a halloween costume. I know, no creativity on my part, but lets be honest, Tayden is cute in anything! He was an awesome little Kellen Moore (BSU quarterback). Anywho, we went trunk or treating and our little guy had a blast. It didn't take long for him to get the jist of it and he walked away it loads of candy. Plenty for Scott to enjoy for days, I'm sure.

Okay, so here is my major question. We will be moving Tayden to a big boy bed this week. I would be lying to say I am not a little nervous, but it is time. Any pointers?

Don't worry! It went a lot smoother when we moved Cam then I expected. We put a baby gate over his doorway because otherwise it was a really fun game for him to run out of his room and jump out at us (not to mention that we have a really steep staircase right outside of his door that I had nightmares of him falling down in the night). He doesn't mind it, he actually asks for us to put it up now because it's part of his bedtime routine. When we first moved him we left up the crib in his room and if he didn't stay in his big boy bed then he had to go in the crib, which he HATED and it would make him stay in bed. Good Luck!

When we moved Stephen, one of us stayed in the bed with him the first few nights (until he fell asleep). He seemed nervous at first, but was way excited when we were taking down the crib. We also put those covers on the doorknobs on the inside of his door so he couldn't get out. That has worked like a charm. (we actually still do that, I joke all the time that to put my kids to bed, I just lock them in!) I always open the door once they are asleep, though, just in case they do need to come out.
