About 2 weeks ago i finally realized that we needed to start getting ready for this little guy.
We went back and forth about sleeping arrangements for the boys, etc. Finally i decided that i wanted Watts to have his own room and his own space. Which meant that Price was movin' up to Quade's room. Here are the sequence of events which have had to occur to get the room ready for Watts:
1) get rid of Price's pacifier
-didn't want to go through this traumatic event while he was sharing a room with his brother
-happy to report that we only had one bad nap, the first no "bubba" nap, but then he slept great that night and subsequent naps.
-sadly for price he got his first 2 year molar the first week he went without a pacifier...he's a trooper and did fine.
2) get quade a bed
-we debated whether we get a bunk bed or just a twin...we opted for a twin with a trundle. That way eventually price could sleep on the trundle.
3) move price into quade's room and have him sleep in the thomas toddler bed.
-the first night (after putting the fear of God in both of them) they did really well. We didn't hear a peep from either one and they both slept until 6:30 (a little earlier than we would like but a good start).
-they haven't been as quiet subsequent nights...including tonight (found price playing in the toilet 2x)...but it's a work in progress.
-naptime though is another story...after threatening price and spending an hour or more getting him to stay in his bed and be quiet, we have just decided that it's best for him to nap in the crib. --Quade has started to just hang out in his room and not sleep several days a week. So this allows quade the ability to read books and not sleep and gives price the nap he so desperately needs.
This is what quade does when he is not sleeping at naptime...creating interesting outfits. Bruce and i found this one pretty hilarious. Note: the t-shirt is a 2T and the jacket is 18 months!
Whew! so after 2 1/2 weeks we are ready for watts to have his own room (except from 1 to 3:30 pm) =).
Now we wait!
