Teething = no fun

Elias is popping his front teeth, and he is so sad!! He'll go in spurts where he just cries and cries. I wish they didn't have to go through it. He turns 6 months in just a couple days- oh, how the time flies!

Addie is doing well-- potty training is still going great! And we decided she seems more confident now that she doesn't wear diapers anymore. Maybe it's because she just seems older :(

Well, nap time is over- got a shower in- it's a good day ;)

Quote of the day from my newly potty trained little girl (conversation as follows):

"Mama, I gotta go!"

"Ok, then... let's go!"

(While sitting on toilet) "Mama! I did it! I pooped!"

"Great job, Addie!"

"Mama, you wanna see?"

"Yes! Of course I want to see!" (I mean, what else do I say??)

(While looking into toilet) "Wow! Mama, that looks like a GIANT SNAKE!"

I just had to laugh... that's one for the baby book :)

Puzzles... my new love. I decided as a stay-at-home-mom, one of the things I am going to get into is puzzles. It's just so peaceful to sit down and work on a puzzle. Probably because it's so mindless. So I started with a 1,000 piece hot air balloon puzzle :) And believe it or not, Brandt and I work on it most nights together. Kinda romantic, huh? ;)

Potty training this week... it's going as good as can be expected. A few accidents and a few successes, but I think she's getting it! Brandt is home for the next four days, so it'll be nice to have company. Potty training = homebound = long days :) B and I are celebrating Valentine's Day with a dinner/movie date Sunday night. A date night is long overdue, so we're looking forward to it! But my hubby surprised me with my Valentine's present... I get to sleep the next four nights and he will get up with the little guy!! It's been a rough last few nights with Eli- he's been waking up every 2 hours, so I am excited to get a little rest. The best present ever!!!!!! Happy Valentine's Day, all :)
