Two down....

That's right folks, Xander is POTTY TRAINED!!! YEAH!!!! I actually achieved my goal this time of not having to change 3 diapers, since little one is due in about a month. This last weekend David was home and so I said "lets do it!" and we did....the third time around. We tried a very different method, a Xander method and it worked. So just like Aidan, he was potty trained within 3 days. 1st day about 5 or 6 accidents, 2nd 3 accidents and the third NO accidents and still no accidents my friends! And who said boys were hard to potty train??? He still wears a diaper to bed but we plan to remedy that in a few weeks hopefully. David was especially proud that he was the primary trainer this time. Good job dear! Just thought I'd spread the good news and cheer for all of you other moms and dads out there that are going through the "potty training" right now. Keep it will work eventually!

Summer cuts and Ode to Hailee!

Well, it's about that time of year again....SUMMER time! The weather has been getting warmer around here, between the rain storms that is, and the boys have been waking up with sweaty heads. So yesterday morning before church David and I decided it was time for the good old buzz cuts! Here are the before and after pics of the boys :)

Now on to Hailee. What can I say about this girl! She is the cutest thing alive but man can she sure get into things. Ever since she started walking she has been into everything, bugging everyone and on the destruction path! She sure keeps me on my toes 24/7...even though I can't even see my own toes anymore. Geesh! She is starting to really grow up fast. She can say a few words and follows simple commands. Even though she's quick to make a mess she will help clean it up to. She can still out eat the boys and loves to bug them constantly. She definately is the spice in this family, our little ball of energy!

Fun weekend....crappy colds!

We had a great weekend at my sistas. It was my nieces birthday and we made sure to be there to celebrate! Unfortunately myself, the boys and David were fighting a nasty cold bug. At least we didn't pass it to anyone....yet? It seemed to just recirculate between our little family. So the boys weren't their happy selves but at least they still had a lot of fun. The birthday turned out great with great food, great fun and great weather. To good in fact, the majority of us adults got a good sunburn. Thanks again Dash, Darren and girls for a great weekend!
