Thanks Val and Aunt Kristi

Well I have a little bit of time so I will catch up on a few things. This last weekend I got to spend some time with my Aunt Kristi and my closest pal and cousin Val. We had a great time. I can't really explain this weekend. I haven't had such a learning moment since I was in college. You know those times when it is like..oh this is what I'm supposed to do. Well lets just say I had one. Koby had a really hard time this weekend and I was absolutely amazed he could act so bad. He's never really acted that bad before. Val and Aunt Kristi were so patient with Koby and I. We learned so much about discipline and being consistent. It feels so good to be able to get away for a little bit, to clear your mind and to be able to recommit myself to being a better wife and mother. Val is such a good little mom and it helps to learn from good examples. Anyway, I love you Val. Thanks so much for teaching me ALL the time!

Alright I did it

Ok well I finally got a night light and last night was the first adventure. He actually fell asleep pretty quick and he was on the bed! But....he woke up in the night and was crying and crying for like at least 45 min and I went in there and layed on the bed with him and he settled down. Then when I would try to get up he would start to cry again so I just sat on the floor by his bed and told him to lie down and he did. He would sit up a few times to see if I was still there. Finally he was I guess comfortable enough and I slipped out of his room and he slept the rest of the night. He was awake when I left the room and he looked at me but stayed laying down. I was happy with that. Hopefully it will be better tonight but not too bad for the first night. He took him naps today on the bed too!

I just went over to the neighbors house to introduce myself and Koby and give them a loaf of bread. People are nasty! I can't believe how some people live. The smell of smoke and dirty houses that stink! I'm so grateful I know better! By the way the people were really nice but still...take care of your house!

I just want to type a little post just saying how cute my little Koby is. I don't know what I would do without him. I mean it is alot of work to teach him everything and it is hard to change a million diarrhea diapers but...nothing is better when he looks at me with that cheesy grin that he has. Nothing. Lately he has been learning so much...when I ask him where the baby is he'll lift up my shirt and point to my huge growing belly and he'll even give it kisses. The other day he was sitting on my lap and just put his head down on my belly and just sat like that for awhile. Koby doesn't hold still and he doesn't really just let you hold him so times like this are so precious to me. I know that I won't be the best mom in the world. I'm learning that there is no way that I'm going to be the best at anything but I can show him that I love him more than anything.
Last night I wanted to try the toddler bed so I put all of his stuffed animals on the bed and went out of the room to get some outlet covers when he started screaming. Well he had gotten on the toddler bed and fallen and hit his lip. He had a fat lip...well I still was determined to try it. So I layed him down and we started to read some books. It lasted for a few minutes and then I tried to turn the light out and shut the door. He screamed loud and I realized that we were going to have some serious injuries so I will get a night light so he won't do too much damage to himself and then we'll try again. When I opened the door he was already practically to the door and I only left for a second. I love my little guy so much!
