John put JT's big boy bed together tonight. This task consisted of removing the front of the crib and replacing it with a single board. So it's the same bed, just with easier entry and exit for the boy. He has been asleep for a couple hours now... we'll see how he does the rest of the night.
We're actually well past ready for this step, we just had to wait for the Amish furniture store to finish up the board for us. JT has been able to get out of the crib for a while now. I think he got out 2 or 3 times. He just usually didn't try very hard to get out. He was much more likely to stand in there yelling "MOMMY!"
As you can imagine, the first thing you have to do when you get a new bed like this is to use it for jumping...

There really isn't a good way to catch you up on what we've been doing since I last posted in July. You'll have to follow on Facebook or Twitter if you want to hear the latest updates. Those updates are a bit more real-time. So for the blog, let's just jump in with something recent.
I'm still capturing our lives each month on the 12th. I'm loving this project. It's very exciting to have 10 layouts completed for this year. I love seeing the little things change. Like when JT moved from the high chair to the booster seat. And when he started potty training.
There's also security in the things that stay the same... like playing at the park, morning and bedtime routines, and drinking coffee- mmm,mmm.
Next year I want to change the layout up so I can feature larger photos and more journaling. I always capture more details of the day than I am able to share in this 8.5x11 layout. I think a 2-page 12x12 layout may be more the ticket next year. And it will probably still be digital because I can get those completed pretty quickly.
So if I start posting again, is anyone going to read? If you are still reading, leave me a comment. I'd love to know you're here!
