My new best friend

I would like to introduce you to my new best friend. Her name is Breyers' No Sugar Added Double Churn Ice Cream. Kind of a long name, so I just call her my daily treat. :)

Really those bananas behind the ice cream should be my best friends, but ... well, you know what tastes better!

Today the kids are SO MUCH better. They got up, asked for breakfast, and were off playing. Audrey decided that she wanted to play "Handy Audrey" so she set up tool boxes for Carter, her and me. Then we all had to wear special hats, our snow boots and jackets. Here she is "fixing" the toilet. I love that she is wearing a skirt with her handy-girl getup. :)

So now that the kids are better, I shifted into MAJOR nesting mode today. Rearranging furniture (don't worry I didn't lift anything too heavy), organizing the toys, and getting Carter's bed set up were my big accomplishments. So tonight we decided to try out both kids in the bunk beds. After some giggling and tattling and Carter falling while trying to get into the bed, it finally got quiet in there.

Although I have to admit, I had very mixed feelings about putting him in the big boy bed. After I set it up, I went to strip the sheets off his crib and move his stuffed animals, and then was surprised by how sad I felt. He is still my baby ... at least for 4 more weeks. And I kinda want to keep it that way. I'm going to miss going in and getting him out of his crib ... but I'll adjust :) Just more changes to deal with, I suppose.

I have that ice cream in my freezer, too, LOL! Yum! Those bunkbeds in the girls' room are so cute! I can't wait 'til we're in the bunkbed stage here.

Praying for a wonderful rest of your pregnancy, Amy!

I know how you feel about Carter. He's still our baby. I love little girl baby, but I kind of hate to relinquish that "babydom" from Carter to her.

Hmmm, that ice cream looks good! Glad you found a treat.

Nice to see the bunkbeds working out. We have two bedrooms upstairs and two down. Since I want everyone on the same floor right now, we will be having our kids in the same room at some point. I know I'll be sad too though--but probably relieved to have Will out of our room. Parenting has so many bittersweet parts.

Nice photos. sorry I haven't been on in a long time. Finally getting back to our house.
We just got Fios for phone and internet on Monday and school is finally over for both of us! Summer, time to unpack and feel cleaned up and moved back in. Still lots of bags and boxes after being home 1 1/2 weeks!
