Jack had his second dentist appointment at the beginning of the month. He did pretty well. He still freaked out when it was the dentist's turn to look in his mouth, but he did pretty well while Grandma cleaned his teeth - at least he laid on the chair himself instead of on top of me like last time.

We had our first day of shorts weather!
Our niece Mia celebrated a birthday (7 years old!), so the boys and I tagged along to her friend party at Sky Zone in Chesterfield. It's basically a big place filled with trampolines. Charlie was a little young for the Saturday night crowd, but we managed to stay tucked away in a corner and had a lot of fun. Definitely a great place to burn some energy! Jack saw some people doing flips so he started doing "flips" of his own - taking a running start and doing a somersault. He was wild and loving every minute! Unfortunately I got disciplined for taking pictures while on the trampolines so I don't have good documentation of our fun.

Another big thing this month: we took the rails off of Jack's bed. I'm sure he's been ready for awhile now, it just hasn't occurred to me until now. He was really excited, and so was I because boy is it difficult to make his bed with the rails on!! We put pillows on the floor the first few nights, so Jack thought it was fun to "fall" off his bed on purpose. He didn't fall out at all for two weeks until this weekend, when he fell out both nights. Friday night he didn't even wake up; just got back into bed and kept sleeping. Last night, he was upset and said he hurt his cheek. I'm trying to tell him to sleep next to the wall or even in the middle instead of right along the edge; he will learn.
