Meet the Sullivans: Five on Friday

Five on Friday

Hello, Friday! I almost can't even believe it's Friday again, because last Friday I was laying by the pool in Vegas with a pool drink in my hand...


and that seems like just yesterday!


1. First things first -- how about those Giants?!! I'm so excited they're going to the World Series for the 3rd time in 5 years! Go Giants!


2. Sleepy Music Suggestions? Our bedtime routine is going really well, but I'm still feeling majorly guilty when I lay O down in his crib for the night and he stands up and say, "Noooo, don't leave me all alone, mommy". He always has his blanket, lights are out, his Twilight Turtle is on, as is the white noise. I think we have a pretty good combo things going to help him drift off, but instead of the white noise I'm wondering if some nursery rhymes / bed time songs might help too. Any suggestions? 


3. We love Sugar Bit! Have you entered the Sugar Bit giveaway I'm hosting this week? If not, there's still time! We love how easy the Boys Fall Harvest Applique Shirt and Pant Set by Vive La Fete is to wear, wash and play in! I'll be putting O in it again today for a trip to a preschool Fall Festival.


4. DIY Homemade Crayons!! How cute is this idea for a sugar-free / candy-free Halloween goody bag? I'm not sure if his class will be exchanging treats together, but if we do I'm all over these!

5. Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival - We're SO excited for the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival this weekend! Each year O gets more and more into our traditions, and I think this year will be the most fun yet!

And a little housekeeping...

The winner of the Three Designing Women Holiday Gift Basket is Elizabeth B.! Congratulations, Liz!!!

I think you're doing all the right things sleep wise! It's tough but hang in there!

Have you tried letting O take a few toys/babies to bed with him? Mac has about 15 stuffed animals in his crib that he talks/sings to each night before falling asleep. When we put him in his crib, we tell him to sing a night-night song to his babies and he grabs one or two and sings for a while. It's the cutest thing ever. His favorites rotate all the time, so we never know exactly who or what he's going to want. Sometimes he takes his trains to bed with him, sometimes a golf club. Whatever works!

Crayon idea is cute, just make sure you tell them it's crayons and no candy! :) I love going to the pumpkin patch and traditions!

So I don't know if this would work but Callie has started to say the same thing - wanting us to stay. Which is so werid bc she only slept in our rom for all of 3 weeks as a baby. Anyway I started to tell her that everyone sleeps in their own room. (Mommy & daddy, the cats, the dog and since we're living with my folks right now Nana & Papa). It seems to help calm her down. She's even started to say back to me when I say it's been time "ok mama and I brush my teeth, put on Pjs, read books, sing songs and you leave and I sleep in my bed in my room." So it's worth a try! :)
