229. A big boy bed.

So today we took the sides off little mans cotbed. New bedding thrilled him and new soft furnishings to match are on their way.

I’m sad and proud in equal measure. On one hand he’s growing up too fast, on the other he’s turning into quite the little character.

I still feel guilt for those months I spent away from him, but we’re having more fun now than we ever did before.

Today was spent mostly in our back yard, digging sand, eating at his own little plastic house, filling a wagon with stones, and beaming from ear to ear as he went about amusing himself.

Good weather helps a lot. Good weather allows outdoor play and better parenting. Indeed good weather lifts my mood.

Tonight we may not get much sleep. Toys in darkness and no bars to stop him, may be just too tempting for our little man. .

Fingers crossed
