Happy Birthday Bruce-ey

I love you big brother.

Other updates:

Kendall has been diaper and ACCIDENT FREE for three days now. Last night she slept in panties and woke up dry. Today she left the house in panties (for the first time--other then Lorie's house) and went potty at story time and at Chick-fil-a. YIPPEEE! Life is good. One of my current favorite sounds right now is when Kendall gallops around the corner and sings, "I need to go potty, I need to go potty" with a big smile on her face. I can tell she is very proud of herself.

We're ready for spring here. This week I did the big closet clean out. Obviously all the winter stuff is still in there but I pulled out all the summer clothes from the basement and washed and ironed them. Kendall will be able to fit in some of the things that I bought at the end of the season last year and Kate has a full closet of hand me downs. I will only need a few more pieces for Kendall: summer shoes and a few play outfits. In preparation for Spring today I ordered this
In fact I hope (but don't expect it to) it arrives by Thursday since we have plans to meet a friend for a picnic at the park. I'm also thinking about the veggie garden that I plan on having this year. I want to plant some herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers, red & yellow peppers and either Bibb lettuce or arugula. I am an amateur so any advice or reference points anyone could offer would be much appreciated! Where is the best place to get seeds??? We're going to have to replace Kendall's little swimming pool and the girls can crawl in and out of the pool while I weed...and I think Kendall will like to help me too.
P.S. Jenn, I thought of you while writing this post. The excessive use of the word "panty" was just for you.


  1. Super cute basket!

    Super talented girl learning to potty in a matter of days!

    Super jealous of your garden plan. Last year we tried to grow green peppers and Ruby ate all the plants!

  2. What a great accomplishment!! I totally understand your excitement about the "potty" exclaimation!! Madison just wasn't quite ready, although I was, when she was here with us but understand she has also mastered finally staying "dry"!!

    Congrats to Kendall!!

    love, paula

  3. BTW, cute picnic basket. Where did you find it?


  4. Paula, The basic is from the greatest store ever (TARGET) available only online. Find it here:

  5. Oops, I meant "basket" not "basic"

  6. UGH! Excessive use of "PANTY." Can't we join the British and say KNICKERS?
