Even though Owen has been dying for Cooper to use the potty, Cooper's had no interest, until today. So, we've spent half the day with our pants down (really just his-I've been fully dressed all day thank you). The boys had too much fun comparing themselves. I will let you decide what they were comparing, but it was pretty hilarious especially since it was taking place in the back yard as Owen was teaching Cooper the technique of peeing on the fence. I LOVE BOYS, they are so gross, but so much fun!
So glad we had nothing going on today! Yea Cooper! I am sure this is not the end of size 6 diapers (did you know they made them that big?), but I am thinking it is a good start!
THANKFUL (and sappy)
Little Miss...I have cried several times since her Gotcha Day just thinking about this time last year. It was such a hard time because my heart was so heavy and ready to have another baby. I had dreamed of a brown baby girl for a long time. And now, she's in my arms and she's ours forever! I look at her and the boys and I think of how much my God loves me. I truly cannot believe that he has chosen me to be their mommy. I think back to this time last year and now know that God was dancing over me and I just totally missed Him. They are my ever present reminder of his love for me, and that is simply amazing to me!
A precious moment when Owen told me he wanted to read Sadie the Bible. It was adorable and Cooper followed suit. I love my job! Owen is such a wonderful big brother. I look at him and wonder how he is only 3 1/2 with the things that he says and remembers. He still loves "family days" where we do nothing but just be together. He adores his baby sister and knows just how to push his brother's buttons (sounds right on track for 3, right?). He got a train to the noggin for just that this morning! He's as tender as he is tough. I love watching him grow into a little boy.
I talked about Life Boxes in the last post and several of you asked where I found this one. It was from Things Remembered in the baby section. I have looked several places and couldn't find anything I liked near as much. I love that you can engrave it because I like to put their Gotcha Day there with their new name! I am sure you could find something that would work just as well. I just love the idea of a Life Box and as small as the boys are, they seem to like having it already. In the picture above Cooper is showing you how it opens.
BATHING BEAUTY!Trying on our bathing suit! Thanks Savannah for letting us borrow yours! Doesn't she look like she's posing? I am hoping that her cuteness will distract from the fact that I am also wearing a swimsuit! I mean, come on, with these 3 cuties, what do I have to worry about anyone noticing me and my pasty skin! We are headed to Great Wolfe Lodge for our first family vacation of 5! Yahoo!
