I stormed into the room thinking I would scold him for not being on his bed, and instead I found him already asleep in this nook by the window, trying to use the curtain as a sheet.

Well, I have some pics but they're not uploaded. But for the past couple days the kid has kind of successfully transitioned to a big boy bed. And by that I mean a futon on the floor.
He started climbing out of the crib during naptime, and not wanting to sleep. So, at that point (when he climbed out like 16 times), it was just easier to put him on the futon. It took at least an hour that first nap time for him to sleep, but he finally went down. Then that night at bedtime, he fell down on his "bed" and knew that's where he would sleep.
It's mostly going well, but the hardest thing is his naptime. We all know that Z likes to pretend he isn't tired and fight through it, so sometimes he tends to just play with his books or look out the window (when I don't catch him right away on the monitor and tell him to lay down). Like today, he didn't nap. So by 9:30p he pretty much laid down on the futon, tried to read a book, and then passed out. I don't know if this is the end of naps (seems too early right?!) Or if he just needs to learn how to take better naps on the bed. I dunno.
Either way, the house is clearing out. Hubby took apart the mini crib (I'm trying to sell on Craigslist to no avail yet), and slowly life is being put in storage. We'll see what the realtor says tomorrow when we meet with her. Either way, Marcus has done a great job getting the place ready.
That's it for Z updates, oh yes, he's getting very independent and he enjoys feeding himself. :) Here's proof--sorry it's sideways, I'm still trying to figure out my phone, and youtube... if anyone knows how to rotate it, lemme know!

Woah, has it been a while. Between the surgery 22 Feb, and getting back to work, and all that stuff that "mom" always does... I've been slacking in the update department. Here are some pics and a little video.
Mar 19 - Z and I hung out a lot in bed after my surgery. He's getting ready to say goodnight.
12 Mar - We're trying to get Z used to using the toilet, he'll generally always use it before bath time, otherwise, he's not into it.
2 Mar - He is starting to appreciate the camera. He imitated me saying "cheese" and he smiled :D
