Catching Up

We have been crazy busy over the last couple of days. John was off on Thursday and Friday so we got lots accomplished together as a family. To avoid a long, disorganized, random post, I'm going to just do bullets. It's easier that way!

Potty Training-

Brooke has become a true champ when it comes to using the potty! We just carry on with our normal life now... grocery shopping, errands, visiting family members, church, etc.. and she has NO accidents. She's not afraid of public toilets anymore and she doesn't even wear Pull Ups or rubber pantie covers when we're out. Very impressive! That being said, we have one problem... Poo poo. She's like TERRIFIED to go poop on the potty and she has yet to do so. Thankfully, she's regular so if she's going to go she'll go in the mornings before we're out and about. All you potty training pros out there... Do you have any advice for me?? This is one final hurdle to get us through to the finish line!

New Freezer!

My parents had a freezer in their garage and they offered it to us! John and his brother went to pick it up on Thursday and they scrubbed it down... Inside and out. It looks brand new and it's so awesome to have it! I'm actually able to see all of the frozen meats that we have and I'm amazed at how much easier it has made my life! It's fully stocked with lots and lots of flour, butter, frozen veggies, and any kind of meat imaginable. Having it should truly help me in my quest to save us money on our grocery bill. The possibilities are endless!


My baby has become so much more active over the last couple of days or so. She's insane! She rolls from front to back and back to front... Just not on demand quite yet! :-) She's hilarious because she's staring to blow raspberries so she always has spit on her face (which I wipe off constantly) and she has learned to take her socks off. She loves to reach for things and grab at things and put them in her mouth. My sleepy little infant and has woken up BIG TIME! She gets on her knees like she's going to crawl and I'm hoping that that's a ways up the road. I'm not sure if I'm quite ready for her to be mobile!

Everything is going beautifully in our little world and I have no complaints:-) This time of year is my absolute favorite so that definitely makes it all the better!

Yay for Brooke and going potty! I have no advice for the poop though. Marissa surprised me by pooping her very first time on the potty (before anything else), so we got lucky!
I'm so jealous of your freezer. I want an extra one so badly!
