We are about 5 1/2 weeks away from having our baby girl. Today we spent the day rearranging rooms a little bit. Ethan has been climbing out of his crib, so we had to get the boys new beds. This freed up the crib to be put in Nicci's room. We hadn't wanted to transition Ethan yet, I thought it would be better to have him still in his crib in a controlled environment :)! But, since he's been climbing in and out to get toys or whatever we decided it was time. Now, he'll probably want to be potty trained before the new baby comes! I definitely don't want to cross that bridge for a while longer, but it is coming!
Conner and Nicci started school a few weeks ago and even though I was sad to have the lazy days of summer behind us, I do appreciate the routine that school brings. Nicci is in the 2nd grade. Her teacher is Mandy Anderson who went to Piedmont! Her dad was Coach Anderson - he taught history, driver's ed., and coached wrestling. She is so sweet and Nicci is really enjoying it! Conner is BMOC this year (Big Man On Campus). He's a 5th grader. His teacher is Mrs. Rutz, she is very nice even though Conner is not happy about all the 5th grade teachers "laying down the law." He says, "Those 4th grade teachers were right! They are much more strict in the 5th grade!" He is on Safety Patrol in the afternoons. It's so funny to pull up to him in the line because he just smiles at me then goes and tries to find Nicci to put her in the van.
Ethan starts Mother's Day Out next week at the same place as Peyton (my cousin Keri's little girl). Every day he says, "I go precool?" He's got a Buzz Lightyear backpack and lunch box and he is so cute! This will be good for him to be around other 2 year olds for a while, but I sure will miss him. He's really a momma's boy.
