Emerson did sleep in an extra hour till 7:30 this morning.

Unfortunately....Elliott did not get the sleeping-in memo.

Midnight Snack

Well, actually 3:15 am.
Emerson took a gloriously long nap this afternoon. 4 hours. I figured (hoped) he was just having a growth spurt and needed the extra sleep. I put him to bed a little later than normal and he happily snuggled in and went to sleep. But as it turns out, he was just storing up his energy for a little middle of the night party. He's been enthusiastically and loudly awake since 2:45 am. Jason's and Elliott's patience started wearing thin so Emerson and I headed down stairs to burn off some extra energy. Here's to hoping he sleeps past his normal 6:00 am when I put him back to bed.

Future Engineer?

Elliott has been building amazing creations with his duplo blocks lately. He works intensely like a mad scientist when he is designing a new creation.

I asked him what he created tonight and he said, "I don't know but you will see!"
