Brig's bed adjustments

Last Tuesday Brigham surprised us with another one of his "firsts". I had put him in his bed for his morning nap and called my sister back when suddenly I realized that I was hearing something that I wasn't prepared for. Brigham was knocking on his bedroom door. Hmmm??? I went to investigate and found Brig standing at his door. This was his first - of now many - successful attempts at getting out of his crib.

After monitoring him and seeing that he could fairly safely manuveure his way out of the crib I decided it was time for documentation.

So... here he goes...

Up and over....

and safely back down the other side! Ta-Da!

Needless to say, this last six days has been full of lots of in-n-out of bed, lots of "stay in your bed", and lots of sleeplessness for both Brig and Mom/Dad.

Our little guy's much too smart for Mom and Dad. We've tried just about everything to keep Brigham in his bed - we even turned the crib around so that it'd be harder to get out of with the higher back in his way (not successful on our part).

This morning Brigham climbed out again in front of Mommy, so with approval from Dad we began transforming his room from Baby room to Toddler room.

Luckily, Brig's crib can be easily turned into a toddler bed. Brigham seemed pretty amused to watch me partially unassemble his bed, wipe everything down, make his bed with different bedding, and hang up his new (non-baby) quilt that Nanny made for him.

Here's the new "big boy" bed...
and Brigham showing off his new quilt!
Thanks mom for the quilt and blanket on his bed. Now he's got "big boy" colors in there too! :)
Brig was really excited about it all until I put him down for his morning nap later this morning. Hopefully he'll want to stay in his bed sometime in the near future.
Wish us luck!

Christmas Sugar Cookies!

In our attempt to continue the "sugar cookie" making tradition this year we decided to invite over our friends and their kids last Thursday night. (More kids = more cookie making fun!)

It was awesome to have Josh & Elizabeth and their four kids over to join us. The kids had a great time rolling out the dough, using cookie cutters, & frosting the cookies once they'd been baked.

Brigham and Gracie also really enjoyed eating the dough and frosting. (Honestly, I'm surprised that Brigham wasn't sick in the night from all the sweets he consumed in such a short period of time.)

The evening was a success and tons of fun!

Omniture's Natal Carnavalesco 2008

December 13th was Omniture's annual Christmas party. It followed a Brazilian theme and was a great night of socializing with Jared's co-workers.

They held the event at the Grand America hotel in Salt Lake. It was a lot of fun to go out on the town all dressed up with Jared by my side.
Thanks Omniture for the great time!
