sippy cup and big boy bed

our little honey at his first tailgate :)

we took him to our friend's, steph and jimbo's, tailgate before the troy game.

he had a blast. after we left there, we strolled him to the pit for a few minutes.

it got chilly so he and i went home and watched the game with

aunt jess, ollie, mimi and poppy. we decided that we love watching the

game all snuggled up on the couch with the fire burning!

a typical evening at our home ;)
showing off his new toofies

trying to drink from the cup in his own he's got it....
and even better.... getting some juice!

got one eye on me ;)


we started giving him a sippy cup a while back to play with. i never put anything in it until this week. i put half apple juice and half water and he LOVES it. he tips it back and gulps it down.


on another note... jared and i are officially nuts. long story short, bennett has been sleeping in our room since day 1. not in our bed (although i would not judge someone for that, because you have to do what works for you and we will probably be there one day) but in his pack n play. since he is getting older and needs support for his little body, we thought it was time for the crib. we just couldnt stand the thought of him being across the house in his nursery. SO, we went and bought a crib (mattress, sheets, bumpers and matching blanket ;)) for our room. we are perhaps regretting this decision as i type since jared just laid him down and now he is standing up in there laughing and blowing bubbles at us, instead of sleeping. hmmmm. this is the 3rd night in his new big boy bed and he has slept great the last two nights. he has learned a new trick that i know he is doing to be a stinker.. he will reach his hand out of the crib, paci in hand, get our attention and then open his hand so the paci falls to the floor. so of course we get up, get the paci and give it back just in time for him to start over. what a little monkey he is. if he wasnt so adorable, i would have to get frustrated with his new game ;)

i love having him right here and i know that one day we will be ready for him to sleep in his room, just not today. i will post pictures soon of him standing in his new bed.. both hands on the bars, face squished up against it... it looks like he is in jail!! too funny!!

xoxo- sarah
