Off the Bottle

Well, it is official! Jayden is off the bottle! Last week the doctor told us to take it away and we did. He still struggles while drinking his milk from his sippy cup, but he will drink it now, so that's a step up from last week! It's been a challenge considering the fact that we trained him to go to sleep only with a bottle. Whether it be apple juice or milk it didn't matter, but no water! So we have always taken a bottle of milk and apple juice to church. Well last sunday was a little bit out of control on our row! Jayden usually falls asleep in Sacrament meeting with his milk, but that obviously didn't happen. He is sure a challenge to entertain, I just don't know what to do. He just wants to get down and run around, and I vowed I would never let my children run around during meetings, so any suggestions would be very much appreciated. We only have 2 1/2 months and he gets to go to nursery, so we are very excited about that! He's just become our little monster, who has too much energy that he can't get rid of. I don't think it'll ever go away! We sure do love to see him grow and change every day! Lately he's started saying "ma-kak" We have no clue what he means. It started when he wanted a drink, and now it's just when he wants anything! It's pretty cute! Last week he learned how to climb onto our chairs. So we find him standing on the table and on the desk. He even tried to climb up the book shelf, luckily it didn't fall on him! He has finally figured out naps, most days! He'll take an hour and a half nap in the morning and then another one in the afternoon. It's so great. After going for a year where the longest he would ever sleep was 30 minutes at a time I feel like I'm in heaven. Just in time for this little girl to come! The other night Jayden even slept for 12 hours and I slept for 10. It was so great. I didn't even have to wake up and go to the bathroom. It was the greatest. Sadly it hasn't happened since! But I'm still hoping!As for me, I am surviving! I really don't like being pregnant at all! And I can't wait to be back into my clothes. I hate maternity clothes, well mostly the pants. They just never fit right! But we only have 2 1/2 months left. I am so excited. I failed the glucose test the first time so I had to go in for the 3 hour test and they take your blood 4 times. I had to do it with Jayden as well, but I passed the second test, so I don't need to stop eating sugar, but they suggested that I don't eat a lot of sweets! HELLO PEOPLE it is the holidays! How can I go without eating sweets! It's so not going to go over well. I just have a sweet tooth anyway, and can't stay away from them. But I have decided that I should at least try. So I'm gonna TRY! But all in all we are all doing well. I got down on the floor the other night to crawl after Jayden, and we'll just say I won't be doing that anymore! My legs hit my stomach and I can't move very quickly! LOL! I'm sure it was quite a sight!

Happy Halloween!!

We decided not to go out "Trick-or-Treating" since Jayden really doesn't care, but Chris' work did a "Trick-or-Treating" to the offices and had prizes. So we took Jayden over there. It was fun. At first he was a little hesitant on taking candy from people, but by the end he was going back to them 3 or 4 times to get more candy. It was pretty funny! I couldn't get him to hold still long enough to get a good picture, but here is one of the better ones. He was a little Tiger, he's just missing his hat.
And Chris & I dressed up as dice. (One of his co-workers said oh a pair of dice; Paradise, how cute. I didn't even think of that, but thought it was funny) I have to say it was quite interesting trying to keep tabs on our little Tiger while we were trick-or-treating to the offices, since we were walking around dressed as dice.
And of course I have to add a picture of our little Zoro. My little sister Alesha!
We hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!!
Oh, and a quick story. So yesterday, Halloween, morning Chris was in the shower and I heard a knock on the door, so I went and opened it and a cat ran away. I was kinda creeped out since it was Halloween and all, but it wasn't black.. :) Anyway, I was really confused, but then come to find out it was Chris trying to get my attention, knocking on the wall. LOL! Happy Halloween!!!
