My baby is growing up

Saturday night was a huge milestone for Bryson. He still has a bedtime bottle and we planned to cut that out this past weekend. We had also been talking about moving him into a toddler bed shortly. Well, we decided to head over to Toys R Us to look at beds. We asked him if he wanted a car bed or a Choo-choo bed. Of course, you can see what one he choose. My son has expensive taste! We weren't going to put it together right away, but while I was giving Bryson a bath, daddy decided to start putting it together. When Bryson walked in and saw what daddy was doing, he got excited. He got down on his knees to help him put it together. Once they were finished we asked B if he wanted to sleep in his crib and he said no, so we took the crib out and moved the train bed in. He was in such amazement of his new bed and got in it willingly. We decided to take advantage of his distraction and give him no bottle that night. We tucked him in and he told us night-night. As we walked downstairs, I was near tears because it was as if he grew up right in front of my eyes in a matter of moments. We never heard a peep from him all night long. When I walked into his room Sunday morning, he was still laying in his bed. Of course he then got up because he wanted to show me the wheels on the bed and Thomas' face. Last night he didn't go down as easily, but once we asked him if he wanted to sleep in the crib instead, he quickly jumped in his bed. They grow up way too fast!!!

The Russians invade...

Our friends Kris, Alek & Maks were in Florida on vacation this past week, so of course we drove over to see them and finally meet them in person. Tanya & Oliver drove over as well and we all spent the day together. We hung out at the hotel's pool for awhile and let the boys play. The wind was so strong that day, so every once in awhile the boys had to come dry off and warm up a little before heading back in the water to play some more. After the pool, we went back to their room and changed, then headed over to the restaurant on the patio for some lunch. It was so nice to see them all and chat about our boys and our adoptions. It was also so cute to watch the boys play with each other.

* Amy mentioned last week, that this week is #52. Although Bryson has been home longer than a year, I have been posting FPF for 52 weeks now. Hard to believe!
