What do you find?

Last night Joe and I were doing our usual rounds before we head off to bed and here is what we found when we checked on Josiah...
Not only did we find Josiah wearing his Lightning McQueen slippers, which he got up and put on, but he also managed to gather some other things from around his room. If you look closely he has a black "Lightning McQueen" bracelet under his bum, a variety of books spread out, Transformer watch with its interchangeable faces, stretchy caterpillar, blue Christmas blanket and Boz who is currently being smashed by Mater. Every night we tuck him in with a puppy, puppy blanket, "AL" his alligator, Lightning and Mater pillows and of course his Lightning McQueen blanket! And every morning we find most of these things on the floor next to his bed.
We have already decided that when we move this summer to our new house (still here in Minot), Josiah will be upgrading to a full bed. Not just because he has out grown his much loved toddler bed but mainly because he cannot sleep without all of his friends!

Joe and I feel very blessed to have such an active little man to keep us constantly on our toes. Also we want to wish Josiah a happy 3 1/2 year birthday today! Its been a wild ride and I am glad that its really just begun!

What do you find when you check on your young ones?

I love that so much!! They are little "gatherers" at that age." I used to find all kinds of things like that in their bed when Shelby and Barrett were little. Sometimes we will find Barrett in his Halloween costume when we check on him. Shelby loves to read! When I tucked her in the other night, she had a book and a flashlight hidden under her pillow! She always wants her door closed, so I guess she's been reading after bedtime for months now!! Love ya!

I love that he is sleeping with his legs crossed! So funny! Sometimes Libby gets up and puts on her slippers too! Are they trying to tell us their feet are cold?

That is so adorable! Aidan goes through phases of things he has to have in the bed. For a while it was his cars, then books...he's actually sleeping with stuffed animals lately. Something normal!

Aw phoowey....I missed it!! Happy late birthday, Josiah! Maegan doesn't get out of bed yet, but I almost always find her switched around completely uncovered and all her blankets bunched up under her....with her feet sticking out between the crib slats.
