Sweetest things...

One of my favorite things to do with Wyatt is read books before bed. Tonight it was the sweetest laying in his little big boy bed with him and cuddling while we read two of his favorite books.

This is what Wyatt sleeps with. He doesn't really have anything he can't sleep without but this is what he gets every night before going to bed. He loves to push the moon's face and make it light up. We listen to him on the monitor pushing it after we've tucked him in.

Wyatt got this book for his birthday and it is the cutest book ever. It has TONS of flaps that he loves to open and look at. There's pages for counting, colors, mommy/baby matching, and tons more. It's perfect. He likes to find the monkeys.
We were laying on our tummies reading and looking at pictures together, but I just had to get a picture so I could remember these memories forever and share them with Wyatt one day.

Wyatt loves his bed. Every night when we tell him it's night night time and we are going to go read the moon book, he gives us hugs and kisses and goes to the stairs. He gets in his bed like such a big boy, lays down, and waits to be tucked in. So sweet!

Geoffrey's was home...

When my sister and I were little every time we drove past a Toys R' Us we would all talk about whether or not Geoffrey was home. My mom always made silly things like that stick. So, when I heard on the radio that Frisco's Toys R' Us was having their re-opening celebration this weekend, I called the store and asked if Geoffrey would be there. He was! After nap today, I took Wyatt to Toys R' Us. I kept asking him the whole way there if he thought Geoffrey would be home. When we got there we first saw the Yo Gabba Gabba Robot. Wyatt was not digging it. He couldn't stop looking, but he definitely liked to keep his distance. So, we walked around the store to warm up, which of course lead us to the balls. Wyatt HAD to get the basketball and carry it around. On our way back out to try again with the characters, we saw him.... Geoffrey was home! Wyatt got to play bball with Geoffrey. And I was able to get my picture. Who needs to hug the characters when you can play ball with them. :)

Oops, it sideways. This was Martha??? I don't know of Martha yet.

Finally, he pet Martha. We are okay with doggies so why not be okay with the big, huge yellow one.

And my mom always lets Wyatt ride the fire engine with Bert and Ernie. Now that Wyatt is able to flip his rocking horse, this ride isn't quite exciting enough for him.

Off to a good start...

I can't believe I've already been back at work for a month! Fall should be here before we know it. We are very excited about this at our house. For many reasons starting with football season and cooler weather. I've been so bad about blogging and taking pictures, so I'm going to work on this. This is my first year teaching high school biology and so far it's been awesome. I love the school, the kids, everyone I work with, and the subject. I've been extremely busy being "new" though and getting everything figured out.

I really miss my baby bootcamp friends. I've been going to the gym and it's just not the same. I also started going to the gym early in the morning so I could have more play time with Wyatt in the evenings and it's been really nice (in the evenings). I'm sure we will get some pictures this weekend so I'll be doing an update with cute pictures soon. I do have pictures of my classroom. I still can't get over how big it is!

I stood in the back corner and took this picture diagonally so you could see how massive the room is. I love it! We have a full size classroom and a full lab. The lab tables are really big, have there own cabinets and sinks.
This is my "little" area.
