i made jones a tie for church. it didnt take very long, but it turned out so cute! i just might make a couple more.
we are making progress... we have had 2 successful days of #2's in the potty! i'm so happy. hopefully this will be the start of a great new habit. i've promised him a chocolate cookie for when he does it and here he is in all his chocolate glory!
jonas' new obsession is cars, just like any kid it seems. we spent a good two hours the other day in the driveway as he would push them down and then bring them back up, line them up, and push them down again. it was really cute. thanks to our great neighbor who gave us all his new favorite toys.
so i finally decided to try some digital scrapbooking and i must say. i was intimidated. i've wanted to for a while, but just never got around to it, mostly because i was afraid and hadnt read any tutorials. so i finally did it and im IN LOVE with it. i cant wait til my kids go to bed so i can work on it. its AMAZING! i might never clean my house again. im hooked. and it looks like a real scrap page without lugging the inards of my closet out into the kitchen only to make a GIANT mess and not get anything done. i dont think i'll ever do it traditionally again. i know.. call me crazy, but seriously. my life is definitely better now. enough rambling. here's my first page in a 4 page layout from the 4th of july. i love it. i dont care if nobody else does. ;P
we took jonas bowling at fat cats last saturday and he had so much fun! i havent been bowling in a long time and my score definitely showed it. its sort of hard to take good pictures in the black light, but here's what i got.. he was so funny.
so i did some photos for my sister and i cant believe how good they turned out.. super cute girls. head over to justbeirie to see a few.
i am so excited for our patio! they came and poured the cement today, and jonas was so excited. we were outside the ENTIRE time watching the men. they probably thought we were crazy and trying to nit pick, but jonas just wanted to see everything. i think it looks pretty good! now we just need furniture to go with it. ;(
i just wanted to put some pictures of moo on.. since most of them are of jones. this is her when she just wakes up.. she's a happy thing. cute too. she's rolling over now, but she gets stuck on her belly and just whines until i help her back. silly moo.
the dr. said that we could start with some solids now and so we did rice cereal first which was pretty uneventful, other than mia would gargle it and splatter it all over me. then we decided to do carrots. well, i didn't realize that solids come up just as easily as regular spit up, and if you take the bib off prior to the spit up, it sort of defeats the purpose. well, the carrots didnt sit well, and seemed to make the spit up worse, so we will be waiting a bit longer before we do any other solid foods.
