Finally took the bars off the crib tonight with some rules given to Mr. J: We told him there was to be no getting out of bed once lights were out, and if he did, we'd put the bars back on in the morning. Then, we told him no jumping in the bed. To this, he replied, "Yes, but I can sit, and I can kneel." Then, he asked if he could read himself books and put himself to bed. We of course obliged. I never imagined he'd be in bed at 7 on his own!!! Nice work, Team Guyer!

Tonight for dinner, we were having Chicken Piccata. Jonah said he wanted to help make it. His first job was squeezing the lemons but once he realized this hurt a cut he had on his finger, he wanted another job. He told me his next job would be "make suring" that the lemon juice didn't "overflow" (there was 1/4 cup juice in a 3 cup measuring cup). Next he watched me dredge the chicken in flour (that he got out for me). He told me I was doing a really great job with that! Then he watched me cook the chicken and intently watched all the steps. I told him one day he'd cook for us!
