Non-Feet Related News

Levi now sleeps in the room with the other boys!  I had questioned my sanity earlier in my pregnancy for thinking we could attempt this.  He used to scream at bed time.  Turns out, it might have been because he wanted to sleep with his brothers.

While on vacation, we had them all in the same room, Levi in a pack-n-play.  Some nights went better than others, but it gave us hope. 

So, we got home and set up the pack-n-play in the boys' room.  Some nights are better than others, but for the most part, it goes really well.

One night, Levi would not stop talking.  Drew threatened to put him in his crib in his room.  He didn't believe Drew.  Drew put him in his crib in his own room and he was really mad.  (I was not actually home at this time)  Somehow, Levi calmed down enough for Drew to decide he could switch back to the boys' room.  Sage had told Drew not to put Levi in his own room but to give him a time out or some other form of discipline. 

We have taken that as a sign that everyone agrees with this new arrangement. 

And in honor of my 37th week of pregnancy beginning on Sunday, we're going to switch Levi's crib and clothes into the boys room and officially call it the boys room.  We'll also be spending quite a bit of time cleaning out the junk closet Levi's closet and getting that room as ready as we can for Annika. 

We're leaving it green, we don't have a crib for her yet, although we have a generous offer to borrow one which we will be taking them up on soon, and no she doesn't have special bedding.  I did buy one sheet with tulips on it because it was marked down to $2.98. 

I will be washing, folding and hanging her clothes too.  I've never been so excited to do laundry! 


  1. I LOVE that the boys all want to be in the room together.

  2. Laundry is so much sweeter to do when it's pink! I love that all the boys are together. You and Drew are so blessed with all your youngins.

  3. Our 4 oldest boys share a room. They seem to like it. I love to hear them talking and laughing together at night. A lot of bonding seems to be going on, but of course we cut them off if the gabbing gets too lengthy. Or loud!

    We recently moved Archie out of our room because of Mr. Baby, who will be our new roomie soon. He had been sleeping with us, but it was time to stop. It has been an interesting transition.

  4. My kids LOVE to sleep together. They just straight up love to be together. The worst discipline we can give them is separation.

    I hope you have a wonderful PINK-filled weekend! Happiness!! :)

  5. Glad you have boys like that, that their open to each other. I like your post :)

  6. Boys will surely enjoy to sleep together. You've got a happy family. God bless.

  7. I love the comment at the end about the $2.98 sheets! Ha!

  8. We went on vacation last week and Cash crawled out of his pack-n-play!!!!!!! We thought it was a fluke, but it lasted all week! It was a nightmare. I was dreading coming home and seeing him try it in his crib. Thankfully, he has not attempted an escape!! :)

    I love that your boys will all be in the same room! That is loads of fun and memories!!!!


Comments make my day and bring a smile to my face, so thanks!
