I love black/white kitchens and especially black/white floors. I love these floors. If you look closely, it looks like they painted over the wood. Anyway, I would love to have this kitchen...it's so bright and cheerful!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Maddox has been doing great napping in his crib. He was going through a phase where he was doing so well that when we would go into his room, if he was tired, he would actually lean towards his crib and as soon as I put him in it he'd almost immediately fall asleep. Sometimes he naps for 30 minutes and other times it is 3 hours...you never know with him! :) Well, in the last week or so, he has gotten so much more aware of things. You can't get anything by him! He loves for me to be close to him and he will actually pull towards me now. If we are playing in the floor and he wants me to pick him up, he will try to crawl into my lap. So sweet! But in the last day or so, he does NOT want to go into his crib. It's kind of cute, actually.
I take him into his room and we stand next to the crib for a second. This is where, used to, he'd start leaning toward the crib. Well, now, he refuses to even make eye contact with it. He completely turns and looks the other way and then he wraps his arms around my neck so tight and gives me hugs, "begging" me not to do it. As sweet as it is, I do it anyway. As soon as I peel him off of me and lay him down, he lets loose. You'd think I was torturing him! It's so sad b/c he will roll all the way over and watch me walk out. :( The good news is... the crying doesn't last long if he's truly tired and then he's out like a light.
My friend was definitely right... "Ages and stages!" By the way, I am loving this stage!

1.This bath ring is something we have been wanting for a while now. Maddox LOVES sitting up and we thought baths would be even more fun for him if he could sit up. He thought it was a pretty good idea, too!
2. We thought he would really enjoy his own swing since he loves to be outside so much. Daniel put it up yesterday and this was his first time in it. (He was intrigued with Chloe at the moment.)
And the last bit of news for the past several days, but by far the most exciting.... Maddox is officially a crib napper now! I am soooooo excited about this because I have been wanting him to nap in his crib for so long now. He has outgrown his swing, so that left us with no options. It is amazing how much better I stuck to it this time since I had no alternative. We started with him on Thursday and each day has gotten easier! I thought about trying those blackout shades, but wanted to give it more time and see if he got better, and he did!
