Ellie and Reid's mom here with a mid-week report.
It is hard to believe that tomorrow is Thursday already! The kids are doing remarkably well with our new schedule. Ellie is awakened around 6:50 am....and has been a trooper each day. She has done so well, I could not be more proud of her. She is enjoying Jen's house and is adapting to her new routine. Reid is also doing pretty well. Jen has done a great job with him. Reid has been a little cranky lately because he is really getting the teeth! He just wants to bite on anything he can get his little mouth around. He has taken earlier morning naps and earlier afternoon naps...which means he is cranky for us when we get him home for the evenings. Again, part of this is the teeth issue. Ellie keeps asking me, "Why is Reid mad?" I could not figure out what she was talking is referring to his mouth. It does look like he is mad because he is clenching his jaws together because he is gnawing those little gums! Too funny! Anyway...we are doing pretty well. It's an adjustment....but we knew we were in for some change. As you can see above....Reid is sacked out. He goes down for the night now around 7:15...and I wake him at 7 am. What a trooper. He is a sweetie pea...and I could not be more proud of my kiddos for going through this transition with me. Thanks for all your well wishes out there. It's so nice to be thought of!

YAY! Glad all is going well and adjusting. It always seems like the kids adjust better and faster than us grown-ups.

What a sweet picture! That was always such a bummer for me when we adjusted Ava's schedule and it seemed like the only time we saw her she was crabby! Hang in there!

Wonderful! I was praying for all of you.

So glad to hear things are going well for you all! It is a shame that we never got together all summer!! Where does the time go!! If Jen ever wants a break, you know Hannah would love to have her stop by for a visit!

I'm so glad to hear everyone is adjusting well.

Have you tried Hyland's Teething Tablets for Reid?? They are homeopathic and available at Walmart. It might be something that would take the edge off for him. Poor little guy. Always, something, huh?? :)

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Told ya, my hair can be wild! And you thought I was kidding!

Hmmm, Blue's Brother's perhaps?
