Was it really a Happy Birthday?

Birthday girl...pre-chinsplit!

This was probably the most steady he was on his skates the whole day!

Getting all ready to try skating

Noah's cousin, Gracey, celebrated her 5th birthday this weekend at the rollar skating rink. She was having a pretty good time until she had to go to the ER. Poor girl fell on her skates and split her chin, requiring stitches. So she spent the rest of the night in the emergency room and didn't get home until 11:30. She didn't even get to play with her new toys. Now she definitely has a birthday story to tell!

Noah wasn't sure what to think of his skates. Actually, he didn't even understand how to stand up. Bryan and I took him around the rink a few times and that was enough, he was slipping all over the place.

Noah visited the dentist last week! This is the picture before the hygienist started cleaning his teeth. Once she started there were no more smiles! The dentist was very happy with his teeth and said he was doing a good job.

Hush Little Baby.....

Two nights ago we finally moved Noah from his crib into his "big boy bed." It's of course a little sooner then I wanted but we need to put Audrey in the crib...I can't sleep with all her little baby noises. We tried the SuperNanny method, also suggested by Dr. Weissbluth who wrote Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child. We knew it wasn't going to be easy especially since he could get out, but I am a believer. The first night he got out of bed 26 times in 30 minutes, but after 30 minutes he was out for the night. He even went back into his old room and pointed to his crib. The second night he got out of bed 4 times and tonight it was 4 times....both within about 3-4 minutes. So after a few minutes we had a sleeping little boy all cuddled up in his truck bed.
