Happy 9 month birthday Conner. I was actually awake tossing and turning this morning at 2:39 am and thought of you sweetheart.
here are a few things I dearly miss about you:
your sweet brown eyes and how they focus on me in sweet moments
your kisses you give me, open mouth and wet
your squishy tummy and the bellybutton I give raspberries on
your cute giggle I hear giving you those yummy raspberries
cute Price chunky toes and feet
giving you a shower with me at night
cuddling you to sleep on our rocking chair
falling asleep with you by my side
you 'attacking' me when I'm laying on the ground
your toothless grin and bright eyes
here is a sweet video Corin took of Conner, in his new favorite hideout.
See you in less than a week. Start preparing for a fun weekend!
This was right after I got in on my flight to Colorado during Easter weekend. We stopped at Walmart and shared a treat at McDonalds. We were sharing our food, every 'little' bit. You can see Conner had his first fry in the top right part of the video as we're all 'sharing'! yummo!
so, colored water, what color is it supposed to be? tee hee hee!fun to hear that you were able to attend the adult meeting....such a great idea. hope the boys get better....hate coughs. this week is supposed to be upper 90's. tomorrow is supposed to be 100....and it's not MAY yet! wanna come visit! ha ha!great job sharing kaylee, you're such a big girl! that is what a princess would do, share with her little friends.I'm so so so happy that the diflucan cleared up his bottom...we were able to figure it all out...eventually. It was definately worth the cost of shipping overnight! just keep it, in case you need it again. now we know it has a longer shelf life than we thought! tee hee heethanks for teaching cade to use the potty and kaylee to be dry at night. Hmmm....let me think of something else for you to do.i love these stories!
When I went to bed last night the snow had stopped and we were surrounded with fog. I figured we were finished with the snow.
snow snow snow snow! wow, and it's mid april!glad Julia got home safe. I was getting worried.I wish I could enjoy some snowmen snowcones too! I love those photos of the prom! Julia is so stunning. She takes such good care of herself for only being in 9th grade, and even when she was younger. I'm embarassed to look at my 9th grade photo! tee hee hee. They looked like a sharp couple!Kaylee is definately the best judge on beautifulness...she's a princess in training after all! That is so sweet to hear Kaylee say that. Good girl.
that was too cute! such a sweet surprise to see on their faces.
still more journaling:
Cade is VERY observant. I have some cars for the boys (the same cars just to make life easier). They both have a mini Lightening McQueen and mini Mater. Cade swore Kendall had his car. How could he tell? Sure enough I took a closer look and one Mater had a darker front than the other. Cade is my little observer. He can always tell in the slightest of differences.
Kaylee had a run in with "honesty" yesterday. Time out works, but doesn't seem to be long lasting. I told Kaylee yesterday that if she does something she knows she shouldn't (get in the girls' rooms and take something), that she would be on time out AND her princesses would be as well. Today she went into Jenna's room and took a candy cane. She had it stashed in her hoodie pocket. She doesn't hide her guilt or contraband well. Jenna's door was shut and locked. I'm glad she is not super sneaky and shuts the door and locks it behind her. She was on time out and I put her princesses on time out as well. You would have thought her world came to an end. "I can't do it anymore. I promise, " were her tearful words. A majority of the princesses were on time out until Jenna got home. I told Kaylee she needed to tell Jenna she is sorry and promise not to do it again. (Already teaching her the steps of repentance; it's never too early to learn!). We talked about what would happen next time. Time out for ALL of the princesses - Kaylee included. I remember studying this in Child Development years ago. I wish I didn't have such a fuzzy memory
I am going to start putting the boys in pants hopefully tomorrow. Right now it is nice to not have to worry about extra clothing with getting to the potty on time. I need to make sure they can survive Church on Sunday fully dressed! We are on our 3rd week and already 1 week of no accidents ... yeehawww!
I spoke too soon. Cade had an accident after having a snowman snowcone just before dinner. That seems to be the trend with him. I need to really watch him after he eats one. awww!
Kendall was standing by our green chair in the family room when he yelled, "Go potty!" He had a look of fear on his face. I quickly ran over expecting to see a huge puddle on the carpet. Nothing! His underwear had a small wet spot, but nothing really. I was SOOOOO happy! He realized he had to go. He looked at me and smiled when I took him to the potty. "Stop pee!" He's been listening to me talk to Kaylee. This has been good for all 3 of them. They are learning so much from each other. Kendall's language developement has taken off in the last month. It blows me away! Kaylee still has her own language I catch her using when she says her prayers or just wants to jabber. I gently remind her to use real words so we understand her cute things she wants to tell us. Cade doesn't have any jibberish. His prayers are cute too.
Speaking of prayers...they take a long time at our house lately. All 3 little ones want a turn. Their own turn without interruptions or they start over, namely Kendall. ha ha!
The kids had fun chatting with Shannon on the web cam.
Here's to pants tomorrow on the boys! Hoping for a dry night!
Cade was dry! Kendall was dry but let loose just before I took off his diaper.
Kendall was dry again this morning and at nap time. Cade was a little wet for both. Not bad! Kaylee ... I swear I didn't give her a big gulp before bed. I am going to have to figure out how to get her to really empty her bladder before bed. I think she is like Cade and doesn't completely empty her bladder. I have been trying to do the "peeing exercise" with her that Mom had us do when we were younger. We are calling it "STOP THAT PEE!" She is to pee a little, STOP THAT PEE, count 1 princess, 2 princess, 3 princess, 4 princess and pee a little more and then count again and repeat until the bladder is empty. I have a candy bracelet hanging from the mirror for her to have if she is able to do it. It is still hanging there after 2 days. I modeled how to do it today. It is hard to do!
Cade is doing amazing with potty training. One pee accident today - he probably wasn't sure what to do when he had to go to the bathroom and was upstairs. He pooped 3 times today - so 4 motorcycles. The boys both start out with a motorcycle and then get another one if they are dry at night, dry during nap, or do poopies. Kendall didn't do so well in the poopies department. I have to say he looks really cute with his Cars undies under his Dora panties. Blackmail .... wedding video ... oh boy!
My Visiting Teaching companion called today and told me she was going to bring me dinner tonight along with another lady. I told her that was very thoughtful, but that we were doing well. She said she wanted to do it anyway. It was so thoughtful ...
Snowmen are falling - Cade was so excited! He showed his mom on the phone the snow that was falling. I was able to show Shannon him holding the phone up to the window on the web cam. They cancelled mutual at church. Snowmen snow cones tomorrow! We are to get a doozy of a snowfall this weekend!
We were able to talk to Shannon on the webcam for quite some time. She saw Cade's wardrobe malfunction with his undies, witnessed Cade coming to inform us that he did poopies in the potty for the 3rd time today, Kaylee sing and just be her normal entertaining self, and Conner scoot around and show his cleavage. I am looking forward to her coming out to trim my hair and Kaylee's as well...
