regression...


this sweet little boy has no clue how his world is about to change. and that makes me feel a little guilty for some reason, but at the same time, he's so young he won't remember the jealousy. we are together ALL the time. we're buds. and now there's going to be a third bud. my prayer this whole pregnancy is that they develop such an amazing friendship.

we have been so blessed with a great sleeper. seriously. it makes me nervous because i'm pretty sure this next one will never want to sleep! well, the past month has been super crazy and lane has been gone quite a bit. so between not liking to sleep by myself and feeling guilty to spend as much time with canon as possible, i've become a softie. i've created a monster. we have been taking naps together, sleeping together when lane's gone, letting him sleep with us while he had the flu, throwing him in our bed when he cries EVERY night at 11:30, etc. so with much resistance, we decided this week that "we've" got to be tough and let him cry it out in his bed because in less than 2 weeks there will be 2 babies that can not sleep in the same room. plus, i have this awful image of the poor people staying with canon while we're in the hospital trying to calm him down in the middle of the night...not pretty.


so after a long week and breaking the rules occasionally, canon slept 12 hours last night in his OWN bed! yippee!!! we are on the right track.

his sleeping habits are not the only thing he has regressed on...


brother's car seat is sitting in the living room waiting to be put in the car in a moments notice. canon loves to climb into it and just sit! he's so darn cute. really, i think he's just all boy and likes to climb. i like to watch him climb. it blows my mind how much he has changed in the last 9 months.


i turned barney on in his play room one day and went back a few minutes later and he had dragged his bumbo into the middle of the floor, climbed in, and was enjoying barney! we got the bumbo when he turned 7 months old. he was a little too old for it, but we used it as a traveling high chair. glad to know we are getting use out of it now :)

i don't think he is truly regressing, but just being a goofy boy. i pray he doesn't have too tough a time adjusting. he'll always be my baby :) my first baby...

I remember my oldest boy doing the same things. He never thought anything different because there were 2 adults and 2 children. Oh girl, you are going to think he looks like a 3 year old when you bring your new boy home. It is a crazy feeling. I can't wait to read the announcement! You are an awesome mommy to Canon and you will be even better with this new boy. You will have experience. :)
