Bunking Up and Becoming Big

So we are starting the process of getting ready for the baby. This means switching rooms. So far we have had enough rooms in the house for all the boys to have their own room, but with baby coming, this is no longer an option. Tanner and Isaac have always wanted to BUNK UP, so their wish was granted and they are now roomies. Things are going really good with them, it was a very easy transition.

That is not the only room switching we've been doing. We have also decided it would be good to move Noah to his new room now as well, and while we were at it, we thought lets move him to a BIG BOY bed (so crib will be ready for the baby). This transition has not gone as well, but not bad. The first night he cried for a few minutes before he fell asleep, then he woke up at 5:30 am and cried for an hour and a half. That day (thanks to loud brothers) he did not take a nap. Next night he did not cry at all when we layed him down, but he woke up at midnight and cried for only 5 minutes and then again at 5:30 (with just a few minutes of crying). Today he actually napped for 2 hours. So he is showing some progress. Hopefully another day or two and he will have this down.

It has now been 4 nights for Noah in his new room. The last 2 nights he has slept all throught the night. You may not agree with the tough love, let him cry attitude, but it sure works for us.

Wow, I am Popular

Totally kidding about that, but recently I posted a poll here about ideas for a baby name. So far we have had 34 people vote. In all honesty I didn't think 34 people read my blog, but hey how fun. Anyway my sister said that I should post an entry about the poll because she had no idea it was there because she has google reader so she only sees the posts. I don't have google reader so I have no idea what she means, but anyway I have a poll, so if you haven't voted yet, you don't want to miss your opportunity, you only have about 80 days left to vote.
As a side note, because of the 34 votes, I decided to check out my sitemeter to see who has been looking at the blog, it is funny about half the people who visit my blog visit because they found my blog because they googled Super Mario Birthday party. So really I'm not as popular as I think I am.
