One Smart Momma

I thought I would take this blog as an opportunity to share that even though I am a first time mom, I am learning quickly! I am constantly thinking of ways to make life with a toddler better. For example...The way Ellis goes to bed every nap and every night is by cuddling with me. Since I can not lay down in a crib with Ellis, he lays with me in my bed...not anymore! I finally made the decision to get a bed for him that I can lay down in. That way he can sleep in his bed and we do not have to move him after he falls asleep. So for about three weeks now Ellis has been a sleeping in a big boy bed! Some would say moving him to a bed this early is crazy, but it is working for us. Here is proof...

Another smart Mom move I made was last week when we had spaghetti for dinner. William and I brought stools and sat them by the sink...Ellis went in the sink in just a diaper. He had a blast eating his spaghetti and he even got some good practice time using his spork! Afterward we just hosed him off and all the mess went down the big deal!

I'll have to be honest, I am still learning...I am not sure how smart this move was:)

Serenbe Get-a-way

Last week Will, Ellis, and myself went up to the Atlanta area for a mini vacation. We had a wonderful time. It was a great mix of romance and peace for the adults and fun and learning for Ellis. It was beautiful and a great big blessing for all three of us. Here are a few pictures (more on facebook)!
