Growth Spurt

I think Ben must have had a growth spurt because today he just looks so much older to me.

Warning there is bathroom humor to follow.

So with the recent potty training much of my day is spent discussing pee and poop. Today Sariah said...

Mommy I went poop so that you could wipe me.

Really how thoughtful of her to do that for me. :)

Blowing bubbles

James freaked out and was yelling at me to get the camera and capture bubble time tonight. Ryan was over and he and Sariah were having so much fun running around catching the bubbles.

First a couple of Ben.

And now for the cute bubble time pictures.

Lately I've had thoughts and wish I would blog them. Now as I sit here to blog I can't think of a thing.

I have noticed that I blog mostly the kids. Pictures of the kids. Progress of the kids. Funny things the kids say. Which is great but I am thinking I should put more of myself into this.

One big thing coming up is that we are going to install laminate flooring upstairs. I'm super excited about this because right now my dining room is carpet. And it pretty much gets destroyed on a daily basis. And it has been nice to let it get destroyed now knowing I will replace it. :)

I also have about a million projects to do in my garage. While cleaning out my parents house, I found several things to bring to mine. On the list is refinishing a dresser, painting a bookshelf, cleaning up and possibly painting a mirror that I don't know where I will put yet, and putting vinyl on a huge window pane I found. Oh and I'm part way through redoing a little vanity for Sariah. And yet somehow I've been taking naps with the kids instead of working on any of them. Hmmm.

At the gym, one of the girls who works there said to me "I love is little walk. He waddles.". As Ben came toddling over to me from across the room.

He hasn't walked much for them there until today. And today he was showing off for all of them. Including blowing kisses when we left.

He is definitely entering toddlerhood and leaving baby stages behind. It is sad in some ways but he does the cutest stuff now. He is still super cuddly so as long as he doesn't stop that we are good!

Sometimes things Sariah remembers surprise me. Tonight we were talking about the storm and the thunder. She was talking about the loud boom and I said yes it's boom-a-room room-a-boom. To which she said yeah like "Thank you for me.". And I was like yeah. That is the name of the book that the phrase comes from. It just surprised me that she would recognize the phrase and remember the name of the book.

James' oldest sister got married. Here are some of the few shots I took at the wedding. I didn't take many since I spent most of the time trying to wrangle little man.

The happy couple.

All the siblings but the oldest, Joseph.

James' parents were super cute dancing together.

Ben loved trying to get the bubbles.
