I also talked to Ryan's teachers about how he's doing in school. You have to know that at the beginning of the year, I had serious doubts about how Ryan was going to do at school. He cried every time I dropped him off. If he ever saw me he would start crying. And he barely talked. He is a completely different child now. He participates in class, he loves to sing. And he's so excited to go to school. He loves his teachers. I have to say, that his teachers are the best! They are so patient and they really really love those kids. So at the conference his teachers told me he was doing great. When they tested him on his skills he really wasn't interested. His new answer for everything is "I no no" (I don't know). So he didn't really do well on his evaluation, which his teacher and I aren't too concerned about. He's only two! Anyway, she was asking him his shapes when she pointed to a heart. He wouldn't tell her what it was so she told him, "It's a heart." And this is the part that absolutely melts me. He looked up at her and said, "God in there?" Is that not the sweetest thing you've ever heard?!? His teacher said she just about lost it when he said that, and I had tears in my eyes when she told me. He is so precious!

The next couple nights weren't as smooth as the first night. Last night it took them about an hour to put themselves to sleep. In the meantime, they pulled all the covers and sheets off their beds. I really wanted to get this process started as soon as I could, so that they would be used to it by the time the baby got here. Eventually we'll be getting them a bunk bed to save space. Right now all their toys are in Gabe's old room and it makes a pretty nice playroom.
I've also got a new product on my website. They're gift tags and I absolutely love them! We go to lots of kid birthday parties and I feel like I'm always trying to find a birthday card to go along with the gift. I had 50 of these little cards printed off and now anytime I need a card I just grab one and attach it to my gift. I'm so excited to use them!!
