Sleeping Prince

I had big hopes for my little man when he transitioned to his big boy toddler bed, I planned to have the perfect bedding sewn by my own hands and ready for his big first night....that ship sailed and life got in the way and before we knew it little man was ready for his first night in his big bed and the materials were still waiting for me at Hobby Lobby.  So MilitaryMan did his magic and surprised us when the boys and i got home with the baby bed taken down, big boy toddler bed put up, room rearranged, and a certain somebodies favorite tractor blanket in place for the night!
I still have BIG plans for my first major sewing project and making new bedding for both boys rooms, and curtains, and who knows what else...so stay tuned!

THIS is our cutie patootie at 8pm last night...

He only made it 4 hours before he woke up and padded his little barefooted feet across the house to our bed and climbed on in :). Here's to hoping tonight goes better and lasts longer, while i love the snuggles i know my baby needs his bed!

Pearly Whites

WHEW! BrotherBean survived his 1st dentist visit and BooderBean survived his 3rd with no cavities for either of them!! Both boys did so good and sat so still for our fabulous pediatric dentist. 

checkin' out the fun chairs at the dentist office (of course Mickey joined!)

BooderBean is an old pro at this...he just climbs on up in the chair and settles in for his cleaning while he watches Cars movie on the mini TV over his head, all of course while sporting his awesome dentist visit glasses.  BooderBeans first visit at age 3 had us leaving sad...the poor boy had 4 cavities and need caps! FOUR! It shocked MilitaryMan and I to our core because this is the boy who doesn't have a sweet tooth in his body and at the time would only drink milk and water.  She said some kids just have sensitive teeth to cavities. SO when we left this check up we were so glad to hear that everything was in check and his teeth looked great, except for the massive overbite (sorry bud, you got your moms genetics on that one and will probably spend your junior high and high school years in braces like i did). 

Getting his teeth cleaned and counted for!
BrotherBean did so awesome! Well he was a bit fidgety and wanted down a few times but we busted out some blue surgical gloves and that entertained him while he got his teeth cleaned! We were worried about this one too because he fell on Thanksgiving day and knocked his front tooth back causing it to bleed quite a bit and has since changed from pearly white to a sad shade of grey.  Oh i hate it for him, mainly because he'll have it till he's 7 or so!!! Doesn't bother him one bit though, he'll proudly show off his "gay teef" for you anytime (as he calls it).  She said his tooth was just fine and as long as he doesn't injure it again he would just have a discolored tooth but at least it would stay intact.
See ya in 6 months dentist lady for another check up!

Playing before going back for his cleaning

Getting all cleaned and counted for!

Sweet Sweet Baby G's

BrotherBean has got to be the funniest two year old i know! I mean i remember BooderBean being hilarious at this age but BrotherBean is stealing the show!
He's making big strides as a two year old:  had his first dentist appointment yesterday, we will be havnig his 2 year old photo session done this weekend, and then he goes for his two year well check Monday.  I"ll update next week on it all.

For today I'll leave you with a few funny photos of our little guy last week!  We were taking down the Christmas decor and he decided that the Baby Jesus from the children's Nativity needed to be played with a little bit more. This Christmas season he has been able to communicate much more and has now started calling the Nativity Jesus: "Baby G's", and even says it with a gangster voice!!
As i am packing items away i see him snag up Baby G's and run off to his room...i go in and check on him a few minutes later and this is what i find!  He tells me he needs to read Baby G's a book, and then says he needs to rock Baby G's that Baby G's is sad. He makes a sad, melt your heart face, and grabs a blanket for Baby G's :) LOOK closely...you can see Baby G's snuggled up tight!!

Cute, funny, creative, smart BrotherBean!!
