We hosted play date on Wednesday and Daniel got to see the madness for the 1st time! It was so fun having him home to see what I "do." He escaped to the man room a few times but did come down for meals! What a guy! His pupils didn't dilate quite as big as I was expecting when he saw the mess! The good news is toys pick up and go back where they belong super fast with 5 helpers!

We had so much fun, everyone stayed for lunch too so we went freezer diving and make salads, chicken nuggets, tater tots and apple slices. Next time, I'll try to be more prepared with an actual meal! Oh well.... we were just having too much fun and time crept up on us! We love our buddies!
In other Wise Family news, it's a.... pteranodon?
In more pertinent Wise Family news, Parker has now slept 2 nights (3 including tonight) in his big boy bed and taken 1 nap. The crib is now officially Avery's and he isn't allowed to sleep in it anymore (according to "the books" once the change is made, you can't revert!). Bedtime has been a breeze all 3 nights and naptime was considered a success since he never actually got out of bed. He did; however, learn that the top bunk slats are perfect for swinging like a monkey. After 20-30 minutes of tears and swinging, he eventually laid down and went to sleep. WOO HOO! All things considered, I couldn't be more proud of him. This transition has been WAY easier than I'd expected.
I can't believe 2011 will be here in just 3 hours but the fireworks being shot off outside my house are a nice/not so nice (if you have a sleeping toddler) reminder! Thank goodness the dogs aren't barking at them this year and waking Parker up! Ringing in the New Year makes the reality of Avery seem so much closer. I used to be able to say she'll be here next year. Now I will be saying "she'll be here in 4-5 months!" CRAZY! I don't know about you, but we had a wonderful 2010 and look forward to an AMAZING 2011! HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of our buddies!!!
