Potty Training Gavon???

Gavon just started to take his diaper off and run to the bathroom yelling, "Pea Pea Pea Pea" In a really high girly voice. He pooped the tiniest tiniest bit after I changed a big diaper just a few days ago, but has never had any other success. He likes to go through all the motions though. I'm not so sure I want to jump into underwear for him right now. I know it would be months of torture, but is there no other way??

A Regular Friday?

Today has been non stop craziness. I fold clothes and put them in drawers, the kids throw them everywhere. I try to make some kind of food, they get into whatever is out and it ends up everywhere. Milk got spilled 3 different times in lunch today. It's days like today I just need to give in to whatever happens. Stay calm, it will be okay.

Happy St. Patricks Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everybody!!

Tonight for dinner we had spaghetti; one of our fast and easy meals after an insane "Stay out of that person's back yard! Keep on walking!" walk around our neighborhood. Gavon thought all the cool things were his to play with. I was struggling to incorporate something cool for St. Patrick's Day, so I just set the green food coloring on the table with dinner, and we had green milk, green noodles, and a big green blob on our bread. The kids loved it, as you can see.
This is Paul right before he took off for Drill. It's a muta 7 this week, so he'll be working hard.
Shayden loves to hold Ashlin. She likes me to take pictures of her holding Ashlin; you'll be seeing those a lot.
Gavon loves his little sista.
The other day I found Shayden trying to put Gavon in a bunch of shirts. He's wearing over 5 shirts in this picture, and he's trying to show me his muscles.
Shay holding Ashlin again.

This video is kind of long, but I was trying to capture Gavon at this age. He likes to sache (sp?) around the house, and does a high pitched hum at people because he thinks it's really is. His personality is fun. He can't say "K" sounds yet, so when I ask him to do something he'll say, "Otay, Otay!!" and start to do it. His laugh is the most pure and genuine laugh I have ever heard.
