Last Day

Saturday was our last day in the park.  I felt a little sad on the way in. The sadness quickly dissipated when I realized how crowded it was.  I don't know if I have ever seen crowds like this.  Despite the crowds, we rode 11 rides.  I couldn't believe it. 

Our "meeting" place.  This place has great bathrooms.  We always seemed to start and end our day at City Hall. 

Our first stop was Mickey's PhilharMagic.  It is the best show! All the boys loved it. Then we went to use our Fast Passes at Pooh Bear. 

Mom excels at "photo bombing." 

Then we made our way over to the circus area to ride Dumbo. 

Then it was off to lunch at "Be out Guest."  This restaurant is in the Beauty and the Beast section.  We made a quick stop at the Gaston statue.

Waiting in line at the restaurant.

We sat in the ballroom.  But we went to look at the drawing room and the West Wing. 

The "Gray Stuff" cupcake.  So good.

Next we rode the "Little Mermaid."  It got stuck for a few minute under the eels.  Sam was a little nervous. 

Impromptu, "I love you mom" moment.

We rode the Seven Dwarves Mine Train again.  We used Fast Passes. The line was almost 2 hours long for standby. 

PhilharMagic for the second time. 

Pirates of the Caribbean. 

Space Mountain.  Finn loved it this time.  Michael stayed with Cooper, Hank, Quinn and Sam.

We finished the day with Peter Pan and Small World. 

Our "exit" picture.  I admittedly cried. It was such a great trip. 

Later that evening Me, Michael, Emily and Zac went back to Magic Kingdom.  We watched "Wishes" again.  Then we walked around some of the shops.  About the time we were set to go, the "Once Upon a Time" show started.  It was so good!

They begged to have this picture taken.  It was quite embarrassing.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Surprise sickness

When I picked Will up from daycare yesterday, I was informed that several babies had gone home throwing up.  Thirty minutes later - Will threw up too - in the car! It was so gross and so smelly.  The boys were really upset. For a minute, I thought they would throw up from the smell.  Luckily, we were on our way to the dentist so they quickly forgot about Will's vomit and started panicking about the dentist.  You see, I had kept this little tidbit from them until right before time to go.  This spared me days of whining.

Oh, and Will just started eating carrots.  That is why he is orange. 
When he got to the dentist's office I took Will in to change him.  When I pulled his only spare outfit out of the diaper bag I notice that the "do not steal me" hard, plastic tag was still attached.  Perfect.  I decided that he would just wear nothing.  So he sat in my lap, wearing nothing but his diaper all while throwing up into a baby blanket.  It was a make it work moment.  And o…

Sleep Training

Since he came home from the hospital, Will has slept right next to me.  For the first few weeks it was on the air mattress. Then we moved to the couch. Then we moved to a twin mattress in the floor of Will's room.  It didn't take long until we permanently took up residence in the marital bed - thus effectively evicting Michael.

We NEVER let Finn or Sam sleep with us - Will was different story.  He was a bit needier that Finn or Sam.  We were able to put both boys in their own crib at around 6 weeks and while they whimpered a bit - we were both able to self soothe enough to go to sleep.  Will hated his crib from the word go.  Whenever we put him in it he would scream until we finally came to rescue him (his words - not mine).  The times we tried, he would scream for well over an hour without tiring.  It was exhausting. So, we let him win.  This is how he wound up sleeping in our bed for six months.

Now, I am not complaining.  I LOVED having Will next to me in bed.  We both sle…
