We did a bit of moving things around in the house last weekend. Connor got the full sized bed from the guest bedroom and Evan got Connor's bunk beds. They are both very happy with the arrangement. Hopefully we can find a king sized bed that matches our set before we have any guest come to stay and then move our queen to the guest room.
Connor and Evan love the "big" bed in Connor's room. Evan is constantly in there standing on the bed saying "Let's bounce!" They also LOVE to lock Sophie in the room and chase her. You can tell this is happening by the giggles that come through the monitor. Then when you go up there and open the door, Sophie comes shooting out...serves her right for scavenging their rooms looking for food!
Evan calls his bed the "little" bed. He doesn't want to go back in the crib...which we left up just in case...so I guess we'll take it down. Until yesterday he didn't even get out of the bed until I got him out....or Connor came running in for him. He's getting his upper eye teeth and he's been a bit fussy with nap time and even waking in the middle of the night. Hopefully these come in quickly and we can all get back to our sleeping routine...since one of us usually has to lay on Evan's floor for him to go to sleep!
We seem to be the black hole for pets this week. First Marley, then we lost our pregnant platy (fish). Then yesterday I heard a loud sound that sounded like a bird hitting the window and when I looked I saw a dead bird in the yard. I put a plastic container over it, but that did not deter the big black lab! He did leave it when I told him to but only after he dragged it across the yard. So I had to pick it up myself! Then today we lost a neon (another fish) and the other platy has been laying on it's side for a few days! We've got some bad animal karma going on here!
It did actually rain twice this week. The first time Bodie ran around outside in the rain at 10pm like a crazy dog! The second time we all stood there and watched. It was only for about 5 min each time, but it was enough to make the crepe myrtles bloom!
