The Deck Is His Playground

I mentioned many times that Jake loves it outside. He would stay out there all day if I let him and I usually do. We have a pretty nice size fenced in yard which is nice when you have a toddler that loves being outside. I usually spend the majority of my day chasing him around the yard. Well I discovered the other day if I take off his shoes and he is barefoot he stays on the deck because he doesn't like the feeling of the grass under his feet. Maybe that makes me a bad Mom but as a good friend of mine says, it just makes me a smart Mom. Hmmm what do you think?

Today Jake was soooo pumped up from playing all day that I couldn't get him to nap. By 6 pm he was beyond tired. I put him to bed at 7 and for the first time in months I didn't hear a peep out of him. Usually when I lay him down he plays in his crib for a good hour or two. I checked on him at 7:30 and he was out cold. I'm hoping he sleeps good tonight because we have to catch a flight at 7 am. It will be Jake's first airplane ride. 

Wish us luck!
