20 months

pre haircut :)

Conor is 20 months old today!  This month he managed to completely give up his paci, something we've been putting off way too long.  After misplacing his daycare paci one Friday and taking his nap without it, we decided to cut it out cold turkey and he did great without it!  Then a couple weeks later, we made the transition to the toddler bed and it did not go well at all.  After three sleepless nights, we gave him back his paci - the only comfort object he's ever taken to.  It did help and slowly he's gotten used to the toddler bed.

  3. Hi Lisa! Don't you love Contemplation? It is so soothing! The chalkboard in the kitchen is actually a mirror I found at Goodwill and I spray painted the frame and painted chalkboard on the back side of the mirror. It was easy! Your little boy is precious! I have a 11 month old boy! They are so fun!
