First night in the crib!

Tonight was Oliver's first night in his crib! He has been sleeping for 5 hours at night and had outgrown his bassinet so I thought we would try and switch him to his own crib tonight. So far he seems to be sleeping really well actually--I am a bit surprised!

Both boys went to bed really easy after our long day. It started out being pretty icky outside with all the rain but by mid afternoon it has slowed down. Thomas and I ran some weekend errands together and did some grocery shopping. We went to Aldi's and Thomas thought that putting a quarter in to get the cart was really neat. He was so excited I promised him he could have it back when we returned the cart. I think I'm going to have to buy him a piggy bank because he really didn't want to give it back to me. He likes his moolah!

Tonight we grilled out and then had a movie night. We watched 102 Dalmatians. It was really cheesy as Disney movies usually go but Thomas liked it. We all ate some popcorn and had some strawberry smoothies. We have to really utilize our movie nights these days while the nights are still pretty short. Before we know it movie nights will be ditched for playing ball at the park and for evening barbecues! It is also warming up outside so that means it is getting too warm to cuddle up with blankets on the sofa together. Spring is finally here in the Midwest. Can't say I don't mind--I hate snow and ice unless I am in Colorado. In that case I would be skiing though!


  1. Moving to the crib is always such a big first step! I am glad he slept well for you. Hopefully it will continue!

    Your boys are just adorable! :)
    Have a great week!

  2. Congrats on the crib - we are still having issues.
