Well I'm very happy to announce that my darling baby boy ( obviously not so little anymore) decided tonight was the night he was going to potty in the big potty. We have been talking about it to him for what seems like months now and tonight at my mom's after a bath he looked at me and said, "don't pee"! and just as a side thought I asked him if he would like to pee in the potty and he said yes like he usually does except for this time he marched over to the potty and put the seat up and stood their and peed like he had been doing it forever. So when we got home of course I had to go and I announced it like I always do and he said "Yeah I think I need to go too" and once again he went!!!!! So I guess we have started to potty train although I'm thinking there is not much to train. My excitement made him so excited that he did not want to put on his diaper for bedtime, but I convinced him that he at least needed a pull up on! I think I have to go shopping for some big boy underwear!!!
Today is Campbell's 6 month birthday!! I can hardly believe how fast the time is flying by, it seems like she was just born! She has been such a complete joy these past 6 months and I can not even imagine our lives without her now.
We made our 6 month journey to the doctor's office this morning for her check up and she is doing just great. In the last 2 months the girl has packed on 5 pounds!! At 4 months she was 12lbs and now 2 months later she is up to 17lbs!! CHUNKY MONKEY!! She also grew 2 inches. She took her shots like a champ and showed her brother that the doctor is not so scary after all!!
Campbell is trying on her halloween costum, but I think it is going to have to wait until next year. Last year after halloween I was a pottery barn kids with my parents and they had all their costumes majorly on sale, so we bought this lion costume. I had totally forgotten about it until my dad said something about it. I have been searching for it for a couple of days and I just found it!!! We tried it on but it is a bit big so I think she will have to be a lion next year! She was very confused as to what was on her head! So if you want cute costumes for next year, go to pottery barn a few days after Halloween!
We took the kids on Saturday to the Forest Park Balloon Race and it was a perfect day to be outside. Austin loves hot air balloons and I think he was a little shocked to see so many in one place. It was a bit of a challenge getting down there and finding a place to park but we finally did and got there just in time for all the balloons to blow up and take off. Austin is so proud of his own blow up balloon he even asked me if he could take it to church with us this morning. It eats with him and watches little Einsteins with him and anything else he does he tries to do it with his balloon. Campbell enjoyed just being outside and watching all the people walk by. If you live here you should try and go next year, it's great!
Well Jason and I just got back from our trip to San Francisco. We went for our 5th year wedding anniversay!! We dropped the kids off at my parents last Monday and we took off!!(Fabulous having parents in town and are willing to keep your kids!! Thanks mom and dad!!) We took off at 6:45 in the morning on Tuesday and headed west! As soon as we hit SF we didn't stop for 4 days! our first day we did a driving tour of SF, they have a 49 mile drive all around the city. (Thank goodness for the GPS). That night we explored China town and walked all over the city and ended up at Coit Tower which gave us a beautiful view of the city at sunset. The next day after I had to drag my body out of bed, we headed north and did the Muir woods and Salsaulito and ended up it Sonoma. On day 3 we stayed in SF and did all the touristy things like Alcatraz, Pier 39, Fisherman's Warf, and riding the Trolleys. On our final day we drove south and stopped at Santa Cruz for lunch and then did the 17 mile drive around Pebble Beach and ended up in Carmel for dinner and the sunset. We headed back to Oakland that night and flew out early Saturday morning. It was a packed trip but we had so much fun and would go back in a second. I also discovered that my husband is a photo taking mad man! I put some pictures up so enjoy!
Well yes it is time again from my husband to take his place on the couch and watch some football! It was a sad night though because for Jason and his friend Chuck the start of Georgia ball means the start of their fall to winter Saturday night date night and Jason had to go it alone (except for the company of the next generation Georgia fan)tonight. Yes if Amy and I want to see our husbands on a Saturday then we know where to find them, together sitting on the couch watching the game!! Today was a good day though because Georgia Won!!
Well Friday night we took the kids to the county fair and we had so much fun! Austin had a night filled with firsts, his first farris Wheel ride, his first roller coaster ride, his first funnel cake (which he loved!!), He was such a little kid going from ride to ride and to our huge suprise went on many of the kiddie rides all by himself. His favorite was probably the circus train. He sat in his little train car and rode around and around! But if you ask him what he remembers about that night he says the farris wheel and Paw Paw stepping in the mud!!
