Back at little bit at a time...

So, it's only been like 3 months and a bit! So here we go. I don't have much time to write at the moment so I'll make it short and sweet. Emma has been potty training for quite some time now but it seemed as if she had plateaued. She would go on the potty when we told her to, but she wouldn't go otherwise. In the last week, she went two days in a row without accidents while wearing panties. This was a great achievement but in the following week she still went pee on the potty but she refused to poo on the potty and decided instead to make a mess of her panties countless times! Today, she went poo on the potty all by herself twice without us saying anything! We're so excited!!!! We rewarded her with ice cream and many high fives! Hopefully this will be the beginning of the end of diapers for Emma!

Zachary has been growing like crazy! He's now just over 6 months old and is sitting up really well all on his own! He's started to scootch backwards a bit and man, can he move! His arms are so strong, he will spend a long amount of time trying to move around! It never ceases to amaze me how great out kids are! They are (usually) so calm, quiet, content and just overall great! We are very blessed!

On another note, I am hoping to put up another post and some photos this weekend.

I'm so glad you've gotten back here!!

Who would have ever thought that you'd have posted something focussed on the elimination habits of a toddler! :)

We talked with Aunt Mary last night and told her how Zachary had no use for me at all but quieted instantly for your father! She recalled that you were the same with her. In frustration she would hand you to Uncle Clarence - can you imagine his shock when handed a screaming baby and then his quiet delight when you settled down! I'll bet it was a highlight of his life!
