check 1,2,3

Can anyone hear me? Is thing even on?

Well yes, blogger had been here waiting patiently for me to come and post a new entry in the life of me and my family.

I guess I shouldn't say we have been busy, because we have just been as busy as normal, but I haven't managed to find the time to make my way here.

But I'm here now.


Emma is growing right before my eyes. I can't believe she is nearing the 4 month mark. She has learned to roll from her tummy to back, but not yet from tummy to back... probably b/c she really isn't a fan of her tummy. I'm sure she will be a rollin' fool in no time.

I've been taking lots of pictures of her (sorry for all the black/white ones... I've gone a little crazy) and she sure is looking more and more like her sister (when she was this age). Although Emma loves to stick her tongue out. It is precious. Here is some evidence.

Grace is as busy as ever. She is loving summer b/c that means swimming! She LOVES the pool and my mom has even gotten her to swim underwater to her... I guess I shouldn't say swim, but its pretty close. She is fearless, which scares me so much.

Potty training is going AWESOME. Last Monday (a week and a half ago) I decided it was "the" day. So we put some Elmo panties on and didn't look back. She had 3 accidents that day, but overall I think she did go on the potty about 9-10 times so I thought it was more than successful. Each day she did better and better at home. We tried going to a friend's house on Thursday and she had 2 accidents (one poo poo!), but it was the first time I put her panties while we were out. Since then though, she has been a rock star! She has only had a couple accidents since last week and we have even ventured out for a couple hours in panties. Only issue is #2... we can't seem to get her to go in the potty. She has done this a few times in her panties or during nap/bedtime when she is still in a diaper. Any advice?

Well I think that's it for now. We are having Emma baptized this Sunday and having family over to the house afterwards so I've gotta run while the girls are still sleeping... lots to do! Until next time. Have a great week!

It's about time!

Emma does look so much like Grace in the b/w laying down pic...and I love how she's getting some fat on her (it's about time so that Reagan doesn't squash her!). I love the tongue too :o)

She sure is starting to look like big sis! So cute! I just can't believe she is getting close to the 4 month mark, where in the world did the time go? XOXO

What beautiful girls!!

Cody had issues going #2 in the potty for the longest time. I think it's just different for them. We finally figured out with Cody it was because he was used to standing up to go #2 in his diaper and he just had to get used to sitting down to do it on the potty. It just takes time. I know it's not fun to hear but it does. I was getting so stressed and sick of cleaning up after him when he did have an accident. Then one day, I got the right bribe and he goes every time. I tried everything and it really is just when they are ready. I can say it's because I bought him an entire bag of candy but I think he was just ready!

I will take a belly picture as soon as I can. I know I have been slacking in that area and I just noticed I haven't posted anything about how this baby is doing! I'm a horrible mother :)
