A Good Thing or a Bad Thing?

The other night we put Anderson to bed in his crib.  About a 1/2 hour later he was crying really hard.  Christopher went to get him and all I could hear was Christopher laughing.  I wondered what was going on in there.  When Christopher came back he said that Anderson was standing outside of his crib just crying.  He figured out how to get out, but then didn't know what to do!  It was pretty funny, but at the same time we didn't know what to think of it.  Anderson practiced a lot of the day getting in and out of his crib.  I had feared that he would be the one to get out of his crib, but I was hoping he would be like Nathan.  Nathan never figured out how to get out of that crib until he was four.  Nathan got moved to a big boy's bed when he was 2 1/2, but I would still put him in the crib occasionally to see if he could get out and he never could.  Now I guess it is time to transition Anderson into a toddler bed.  I'm a little sad because it was nice having him in his crib where he couldn't get out and it therefore led to him taking a nap or going to bed in there.  Now, if he doesn't want to sleep he can just get out.  On the plus side, now when we wakes up in the middle of the night we most likely won't have to get him because he can just come to our room and climb into bed, which will be nice.

The flu is finally on its way out!!!  My fever broke after three days and I have a lot more energy.  The week that Christopher had the flu I felt like it was the longest week ever.  Then he told me that this past week (the week I was sick) felt like the longest week to him!  It's a lot of work being a mostly single parent.  We both agree that January has been a loooooooooooooong month.  We just hope that in February we aren't as sick as we were.

This morning I made yummy and very sugary cinnamon rolls.  I was inspired by a friend who had recently made some.  The rolls are so good, but I think that I might go into a coma soon from all of that sugar!

So glad that you're starting to feel better! And "Awa" at Anderson ... he is growing up so fast!
