Well things have been a little (actually A LOT) crazy around here...so that is why there is a lack of posting. We are getting ready to move next Friday---and in between going back to work, all the shopping, cleaning, quality time with the boys, packing, moving and unpacking things....I hardly have a minute. But here is what we are up to...(pictures will come soon---hopefully this weekend)
Brayden is 100% potty trained!!!! Yeah!!!! Don't get me wrong, I know that we will have accidents but he is doing GREAT!!! Best part is...he only like to go #2 on the big potty WOOOHOOO which is way less mess and clean up!!!!
He is loving his big boy undies---and with his potty money (he gets change when he goes) we went to Target this weekend. I let Brayden carry his change in a bag, and unleashed him in the toy section. I was a little worried at first, but he just browsed and tried out different truck and toys for about 30 minutes---in the end he settled on an ambulance and got a kick out of paying for it. It drives, shakes, makes noise, etc...he thinks its great! Best part, there were no tears or whining that he wanted more than one thing!
One last potty story--we went to our friend's house on Sunday night. They have 2 girls---one is Marshall's age and one is Brayden's age. Well, Anna, the little girl who is Brayden's age (who he will go to high school with later) decided that she was interested in watching Brayden go to the bathroom at her house---all 5 times that he went. Anyways, Brayden went poop and of course he has to check it out---and screams "Big Terd" Anna responds with "That's Beautiful" Hahahahah!!! That will be a great story to tell them later on in life!
Other than going on the potty, Brayden is just getting SO BIG and SO SMART! He is now able to count to 10, knows his colors and was just accepted into the early 3's preschool next year (I of course teared up thinking about him going to preschool already!)
Now onto sweet little Marshall. He is just so smiley and happy! What a 180 from his first few months of life. He is just a happy camper unless he is tired or hungry. He is a HUGE belly laugher---we got a video of it, and I will post it soon. He is super chubby---he is not quite 4 months and weighs around 17 pounds. I am still trying to squeeze him into 3-6 month clothes...but man they are tight! I just need him to fit in them until we move on Friday and I can break into the 6-9 month bins! He does really well on his belly---he can turn in a circle and pushes up to 90 degrees. He still cannot roll/tip over but soon enough. He is great at holding things and loves to sit in his bumbo while I am cooking or while we are eating dinner. He is just so cute and happy that he brings a smile to my face instantly.
Every day I just say to myself how much I LOVE being a MOM. It is seriously the BEST thing in the world. I LOVE having Marshall in my arms giggling and trying to talk to me while Brayden is playing and telling me about his day. Motherhood is of course hard and tiring----but it is WORTH every sleepless night, every hard time, every break down. It just amazing how much I can LOVE these 2 little people and I thank God every day for giving them to us.
