Guess what we've been up to!

That's right, potty training. I have tried several times to get this girl to use the potty. Needless to say she would always go a few minutes after she got off the potty. Well, the other day I decided we'll give it another go. So I kept taking and taking and taking her. Finally, I caught her at the right moment and YEAH she went. After that about an hour later she TOLD me she needed to go potty and she did!!! It is very exciting. We celebrated with a potty song and candy. She has been doing pretty good since. Now we need to tackle the dredded #2! Anyway, as you can see in the pics she is a gal of many talents as she potties while drinking her milk without hands!!!



Now for an update of the boy. I took his 1 month pic the other day. I didn't do anything fancy because I was just trying to mimic Ella's 1 month pic that I had done at Walmart.(It was before I got into taking pics) Anyway, I propped him up on the cute blanket that Mimi made him and started snappin. Here is the most decent one. The child was giving me some interesting faces!!



Yep, this his the face he made in most of the pics! Cross eyed and mouth at a pucker!!

Holla at yo boys!!

I really cannot believe how big Ryder is getting. Those faces were cracking me up. I think that Max and Sam both slept through their one month pictures.

Yea for Ella going on the big girl potty. Good Luck with #2.

Oh Katie, I was laughing out loud at these pics. Ella's are just too cute, she's such a little ham. As for my Ryder Roo, they also made me chuckle, but I laughed the hardest with the last picture and your comment. Too funny!!
