31 Weeks and Counting

We are finally in single digit weeks count down! We are patientley waiting for Korbin to make his arrival. His sister is super excited. Daddy on the other hand is excited but has lots of work to do before he gets here. It is so crazy how  by now when I was pregnant with Addyson the nursery had alreay been done fore weeks. This time we are just taking our time ; )

I wish I would have taken pictures through the whole pregnancy to show the progress. I guess it is never to late to start! Ha!

Reading like Crazy

There has been a lot of reading going on in our house lately! Addyson is crazy about books. We read approximatley 10-15 books a day for her. The majority of those are read close to bed time. She is just crazy in love with reading. Which makes this momma happy! I participated in a get together called the One Stop Shop the other day ( I was selling my Pampered Chef) they had a lady there selling Usborne books. They are the coolest things ever and also very reasonable priced (about the same or cheaper then Target). They have some of the cutest books for all childrens ages. I would definetley recommend these books to anyone.

Addyson is not the only one that has been reading. I started to read "The Help" on my Iphone the other night and have totally fell in love. It takes a lot for me to read a book. It has to really catch my attention and let me tell you this one has. I have NOT seen the movie yet but really am looking forward to comparing the book and the movie. If you are not a reader this book is definetley for you.

Hopefully you will check out both of these. "The Help" is a great book and Usborne Books is a great company to purchase your books! Happy reading and Happy book Shopping : )

Big Girl Status Just In Time For Baby Brother

Let me just say that we definetley have a BIG GIRL on our hands. She is sleeping in her own bed all by herself. The first week she really didn't care to much for sleeping in there by herself but the past three days she has went to sleep on he own in her big girl bed! Ever since she has been in her big girl bed I had noticed that she wasn't wetting her pull up at night. When she woke up she would be completely dry. So I decided to try her in panties when she went to bed. Well guess what? We have not had any accidents for 4 nights! She has for sure earned her big girl status!

For the past week Addyson has been begging for her brother to get here. I keep explaining to her that he still has to grow a little bit longer before he makes his appearance. She is dying to meet him, hold him, kiss him and love all over him. ( I don't blame her I am ready too!!) Last night I brought home some clothes for her and him from a consignment. She was carrying his pants around yelling "Korbin come here so I can put your pants on you!" Is that not hillarious? We are all anxiousley awaiting the arrival of baby Korbin Clay. We can't wait to see his sweet face and love all over him. I know that Addsyon is going to be an excellent big sister. I have decided to put a callendar up in Addy's room to mark off the days till baby Korbin arrives. Hopefully this will help her to be a little more patient : )

Big Girl Bed

Addyson got a big girl bed the other day! She has been super excited about it. We have transitioned really well from the crib to a regular bed. That is definetley a relief. I thought it was going to be really hard for her. She has slept in it every night since she has had it. I have to lay down with her till she falls asleep but that is only for 5 minutes because the second her head hits that pillow she is out. Tonight when I was laying with her she said " Mommy I am ready to sleep by myself." I said ok and kissed her and started to get out of the bed. She sat up and said " No Mommy I don't really think I am ready." I said " Ok just let me know when you are ready." Addyson said " Mommy you are my best friend! We are bestest friends ever!" WOW is that not the sweetest thing ever! Love this girl so much. The only thing that is not working out to well with the big girl bed is the new wake up time. 5:45 am comes really early ; ) Every morning when she wakes up she says " I slept good in my big girl bed!"

Looks like she really enjoys her new bed!
