I love slow mornings!

Since Spring has hit, we've been running around a lot. Errands, appointments, playdates, time at the park...we keep our mornings pretty busy! Some of that is intentionally getting up and getting out of the house, some of it is necessary.

Today is a different's 10:30 am...I'm still in my workout clothes and Josiah is still in his pj's! And...we just snacked on these...

Yummy Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, fresh from the oven!

I think someone likes them

We have recently discovered the power of dessert for Josiah. Specifically, the power of "When you finish your dinner, you can have a cookie. One more bite of apple and you can have a cookie."

So, I figured cookies chock full of goodness such as oatmeal and peanut butter would be great! Finger lickin' good, even...

I think Josiah is a fan of slow mornings as well.

Hope you have a good one!

Our Big Boy in his New Room

That's right, folks. Josiah has officially moved into a "big boy bed" in a new "big boy room". We decided to keep the nursery where it was and move him into what was the guest room/sewing room/office. He's sleeping in a double bed so that we can theoretically move him to the floor and still have a spot for our guests when they come. He moved over a week ago and is doing great! I didn't want to post about it last week, in case I would jinx the whole situation, but he has been super-excited about his new room. He's slept great for naps and nighttime and doesn't yet realize that he could get in and out of bed on his own. We're going to keep that a secret for as long as possible, so please don't tell him :)

Here are a few shots of his new room. They're not great, but room shots never are...

The biggest thrill has been his new train table. Andy is a Craigslist rockstar and found the train table and some tracks for a total of $15!!! We did a little scrubbing and everything was good as new!

He got a new quilt from Mimi with all kinds of trucks on it. He wakes up talking about trucks or trains every morning!

This goofy boy always wants to wear silly things as hats. Today, it was "Raffie" his giraffe blanky. He wore it the whole time he was playing with the trains.

Now we just have to get the nursery ready for the next little guy...
