They each bundled up with their popcorn and I got about 45 minutes of this. It was awesome. It was lovely. I saw a peek into what could be!
We started movie night years ago and it's been one of the best parenting decisions yet. I love this tradition.

It makes me think, for a split second, that we should move Emily from her crib to a bed. I think she'd LOVE a bed. We'd love a bed to lay in to play or read books etc BUT (and this is a big but-tee hee hee) after all the crap Nolan gave us surrounding bedtime, coming out of his room, refusing to go to his bed, stay in his bed, stay in his room etc, I can't do it. I just can't choose to move Emily to a bed.
Sure, she MAY stay in her bed. Sure she MAY be different from Nolan and not give us any bedtime issued (one can pray, right?) but why would we even go there unless it was necessary. Emily is a climber, but she's not a faller. So while she likes to perch herself on the top of the crib, she has not yet gone over. She has not climbed out.
So, it looks like Nolan's just going to have to get over the fact that we lay in his bed and read. Or cover up our tracks better. Because we're not moving her to a bed prematurely. Nope, no way.

So all in all we're in a good spot. I've got my fingers crossed that things continue in this manner. These kids are fun right now, they are STARTING to play together. They are starting to talk to each other. They are starting to play on their own. It's magical when it happens.
