I thought I'd throw in some random pictures that I have been needing to post...
Last Saturday, we had an LDSSA tailgate party before the UofM-Notre Dame game. This was our first MBA1/MBA2 event (we missed the part-timers!).
Notice something different hanging out of his shorts? Yep! It's big boy underwear, not a diaper! Wes has been wearing underwear for about 2 weeks now - day and night - and it's gone really well. We've had some accidents and some setbacks, but most days and nights his underwear stays dry and clean. Of course, I still have to pay attention and remind him to tell me that he needs to go (even though he rarely does that). Usually, we use excuses like going outside to have him sit on the potty. That usually works. It's an adventure though!
Now that Wes is 2 (and 5 months, today) he says and does a lot of silly things. I think the saying-funny-things part is one of my favorite things about having a toddler. I have nothing to share at the moment because I think that most things are just funny to me and Brian and not to anyone else.
Wes and Sydney are good buds. They sure love each other. The other day Wes was laying on the ground watching a show and Sydney decided to crawl over and get on top of him. Esentially, she was trying to provoke him and get him to wrestle with her. She really likes playing with her brother.
Yesterday Brian was home in the afternoon between classes so we walked over to DQ for Blizzards. We got Sydney a little ice cream cone and she loved it! Of course it started dripping all over so Brian took it away for about 5 seconds to clean her up and she had a total meltdown. She made it very clear that she was not done with her ice cream cone. It totally made me laugh. I can relate though, I would be mad if someone took my ice cream away before I was finished! :)
I think there are few things sweeter than seeing my husband and my kids having a great time together. Brian is an amazing dad. The kids love him so much. He's back to classes in full-swing, recruiting, and working part-time at the school (TA and career counselor) so he's busy, but he still makes time to see and play with the kids. They're sure glad about it too!
