Not Just Another Monday...

Big Stride, big strides - that's what we have taken in the last week. From Monday to Monday, Harrison has gone from wearing pull ups to underwear 98% of the time.

He started Nursery school and is loving it.

He insisted on pulling out the big mattress and has been sleeping on it.

He stopped needing the cup of milk before bed.

He took it upon himself to clean up [some] of his messes without being asked 3 times.

And tonight he went to sleep in a new [to him] bed.

This evening, Big Brother helped pull out his old Jr. bed, that he slept in up until we got him a loft, so that we could set it up for Harrison.

Harrison was very happy to have Big Brother's bed. We know how happy he was because as we took down the crib and set up the bed, he asked if it was big Brother's bed and if he was getting Big Brother's bed then announced his joy at our reply every two minutes.

With the wooden frame complete, Harrison proudly named the bed R2.

As in R2D2 of Star Wars fame...

Then he broke it in with jumping for 15 minutes.

Sorry the pictures are so bad, I remembered to change my camera settings for action shots but it was dark when I took these.

Yup, leave it to my child to name his bed after a Star Wars droid.

On a separate note, today was Best Shot Monday, head over there (if you haven't already) and see what Tracey has been up to as well as more best shots!

Tracey has also proposed a Little Perspective Friday and started a Flickr pool by the same name to help us encourage our child's creative vision behind the lens. Harrison has been using a camera since he was two and a half. First, a Fisher Price camera and then one of my older point and shoot cameras; I've posted his pictures for BSM in the past but I look forward to occasionally posting more on Fridays.

Love the montage you made. Did he break it break it?

So... I've decided our children were meant to be twins. If you ever come to Ohio, look me up...we have to get them together. That's really all I have to say... they are one in the same.

Your BSM is too cute with him holding the camera! I can so relate to that one as W.W. wants to hold my camera all the time. :)

Congrats on moving out of pullups and no more milk and sleeping in a big bed. That's great. It's such a huge step too. :)

Yeah Harrison! I just can't believe how much new stuff he's doing all at once. Love the jumping series. :o)

Huge week! H-U-G-E! Wow. Way to go Harrison!

I LOVE that he named his bed R2. The girls have never seen Star Wars but are quite taken with J.'s toys...R2D2 is Em's fave.

I LOVE the shot of him taking photographs. Ha, what a natural.

A big boy bed? Now THAT is a milestone. I was planning on keeping mine in a crib until he's 19.



NOT. :)
