Our sweet friend, Chrissy, helps Luke fill up the water balloons. Chrissy might be Andrew’s teacher next year….let’s pray she is!
Andrew is potty trained, for the most part. Doing #1 is no problem….he rushes to lift the lid, flush, close the lid and wash his hands. However, performing #2 on the potty is still a struggle. Pediatricians, midwives, mothers, advice-givers all say pretty much the same thing – that it’s scary to see a “part of themselves” go down through the hole in the toilet. Oh well……we’ll keep trying. We’ve done all we can to intice him -candy, choo choo trains, stickers, trips to ChuckeCheese, etc. Nothing is working. Prayer is more powerful so I’ll stick to that.
Luke has been curiously watching his older brother use the potty so he has become quite interested in doing #1 by himself. Tonight, he let us know that it was his turn. I caught it on camera. He wasn’t successful but it was cute and we’re gonna encourage him to keep trying, even though he’s only 18 months old. Don’t you appreciate the vibrant color I caught on film???….sorry!
Mom, Aunt Norma, the boys, and I, visited Callaway Gardens for a few short hours this afternoon. The butterfly house was Andrew’s favorite but Luke liked playing with the dirt in the vegetable garden. We stopped to pose for a picture at the butterfly center exit.
The ladies of our church gave me a baby shower Thursday night. It was great to gather and have fun eating and chatting together. We played a few games and had encouraging conversation. My mother-in-law, Cheryl, and sister-in-law, Valerie (and neice, Ella), joined me in the fun of opening gifts and seeing all that God gave to Abigail to start her “life” journey.
T – totally tired
I – in need of rest

D – dozing as I type
Anyone? Bueller? Anyone?
I know what you’re thinking…she’s about to pop! Believe me, I’ve heard it enough already- from friends and strangers alike. Yesterday, after a stranger made mention of how large I was, I said, “Oh, I’m not pregnant.” You should have seen the look of shock on her face. Priceless! I just couldn’t resist. Yes, of course I told her that I was indeed with child (but I still wanted to slap her).
Like loves eating the blue bubble gum flavored ice pops. I wish he understood that it falls off the stick if you only bite it on one side. He’s learning.
Is this picture appropriate for the Internet? Luke likes to lay on his tummy and pretend to swim when taking a bath.
