All grown up

Well, Emmett is growing up too fast. He just moved into a twin big boy bed this weekend. He loves it! We bought him race car bedding and cool race track decals for the walls. Emmett and I got out of the house Saturday morning so Luke could take down the crib and set up the twin bed. By the time Emmett and I got home he was asleep in his carseat and took a nap without knowing it in his big boy bed. When he woke up he was so excited! That's when Luke and Emmett put up the decals and I took a few pics to document the momentous occasion. He seems to go to bed pretty easy and naps have been going alright so far.....
We've also started swim lessons without me in the pool with him. He seemed to really enjoy the water and his instructor til about the last 10 minutes or so. I think part of that was nap time, cause he was asleep by the time we pulled into the driveway. I guess we'll try again tomorrow and see how it goes.

On Sunday, we took a family trip to Billings for one last Costco shopping extravaganza. We also needed to bring home a few bags of soil for the garden, so Lowes was another stop. Emmett fell in love with the outdoor water features and it sure made for easy shopping while he was entertained. Luke also was celebrated as a great Dad, a weekend early, by shopping for some new clothes. We had a really great lunch at Old C's and overall a really nice day away from home.
Aunt Chrissy. She is the greatest toy giver in the world, but then she gets to go home! Last time she was here to visit, she brought Emmett a Shake-um-up/talking Ramone car from the movie Cars. He loves it, but it seems to have influenced his vocabulary. He now calls me "Holmes" as in "C'mon Holmes!" and says "Hello baby!" only it sounds like "yellow baby" because of Ramone's hispanic accent. Cute as it is, I really prefer Mommy.
