We are beginning a slow and gentle process of transitioning from a family bed to a separate "big girl" bed for Eleanor (starting with naptimes for a while). This weekend I transformed her room into a big toddler room by moving out the never-used crib and moving the guest bed into her room sans the bed frame.
Kathryn- Clay's wife and Eleanor's mommy. Stays home with Eleanor. Enjoys shopping, playing with Eleanor, and trying new cuisines. Member of La Leche League and attends Attachment Parenting International meetings.
Clay- Kathryn's husband and Eleanor's daddy. Works hard during the week so Eleanor and Mommy can have fun. Enjoys sleeping in on weekends, watching tv, playing video games with friends. Almost done in pursuit of a CPCU degree, which will make him officially an insurance underwriter.
Eleanor- 14 month old toddler. Strawberry-blonde curls and big blue eyes. Likes to babble, walk around, and play with her Little People toys. Enjoys eating steak, chicken, peas, corn, and hummus. Hopelessly addicted to The Wonder Pets. Especially Ming-Ming Duckling.
