sleep less, stack more,buy an ornament

ever since our pennsylvania trip, saylor has been sleeping less. i can't complain as before he was sleeping more than the average toddler his age [13-14 during the night, plus a 2-4 hour nap!] the other huge difference is he used to wake up and play for awhile in his crib. so we'd hear him around 8:30 or so but could easily leave him in there till 9 as he was just laughing and talking to his stuffed animals. now he wakes up whining. althooo a couple weeks ago he was waking up screaming and now it's just quiet whining. i think that's progress. and the wakeup times are around 7:15. [keeping in mind we put him down at about 7. sometimes even 6:50 or so! so he's still sleeping 12+ hours] and his naps around about hour and 45 minutes [although the one time he was sleeping longer than two hours i had to wake him up to go somewhere! are you kidding.] but again i think he is starting to nap longer as when we first got home his naps were only an hour or so. i know this isn't interesting but i like to have it noted and i know with the next kid i'm going to wonder 'how did saylor sleep at this age?' not that i'm pregnant now! i do keep talking about the 2nd child, but the little hamster does not exist yet. colin keeps saying he wants a second one now and he's just waiting for my ok.... so ya i'm thinking about it more! but not ready just yet.
anyhow i kept hoping saylor would fall back into his old fantastic sleep schedule when colin came home. but then we had the time change, and then he got sick, so there are all sorts of things against us. so we will see...
i am doing something called the great ornament exchange. you know you wanna get in on this! click the box and join the party!

saylor loves to stack! here's a couple pictures but it doesn't do it justice because he can stack twice as high. i love finding little towers, he stacked candles the other day, with a car on top of course.

Liam is sleeping less too. We have since made another trip to Atlanta and then had the time change, so he has been in and out of different time zones a lot. No wonder! Maybe Saylor and Liam secretly just miss each other and want us to start a traveling commune?? I guess we'll never know... I still miss you!

Ya know-you don't have to be ready for the baby now-it'll take oh about 10 months or so until 'it' gets here.... :)

He looks like such the proud little man showing off his work-yeah, I did that, it's cool, I know...

Crap-i just realized my english muffin has been in the toaster oven waaaaayyyy too long....dope!

He hardly even looks like a toddler any more... he's starting to look like a little kid! Wow! Maybe it's just the picture. Anyway, I love his cute little haircut. And... that like about pregnantness... I totally read it wrong and thought you were pregnant and i was so excited! :( Soon enough, soon enough. Love you!
