Proud Mama!

I am a proud Mama.

For the last 4 months my baby has been sleeping in bed with us (not changing that anytime soon), but I always wanted to put him in his crib for nap time. Which was impossible.
I would lay him down and he would start screaming right away..I would wait a few minutes but it wouldn't stop. I felt bad to let him scream it out ( don't judge me ).

So, on this past tour of 2 1/2 weeks I started putting him in his Moses basket more often to see if he would fall asleep. Success.

Last night was our first whole day home, and Hunter had gotten Julien to sleep. So he laid him down in his crib and he slept for a whole 3 HOURS!! I was so proud of him! When he woke up I fed him and laid him right back down and he didn't wait up until midnight!

He is growing up so fast! I dread the day I have to give him solid food because it's one step closer to toddlerdum. (hah)

There is a new baby in the household, Congratulations Steve and Serena Pinder. Gavyn Anthony Pinder was born 11/11/2010 a whole 9lbs! It's exciting to have another bugger around, makes me feel like Julien was born so long ago!
But we have great plans for the two to be best friends!
Julien looks monstrous next to the little guy, but I'm sure he'll catch up in size soon enough!

We are home, I couldn't be more excited to have a few months off, but then I remember it's not really 'off' just preparing for the next year!
I am so proud of my JuJu bean being so good on tour! He is definitely the DREAM BABY!

I will try to keep everyone posted over the next few months, but we will be very busy booking shows (contact us if you want us menastreeswalking.net), buying tires, doing minor renovations to the bus, and recording our new EP. All in a days work my friends, never a dull moment with the Trees (aguirres, nelsons, hellermanns, pinders) it's great!
