Our Happenings...

The biggest exciting news of late is that GG got a speaking part in the musical at church, which also means she has a solo with it. She is beyond excited about it. Next week they will give out the rest of the solos and Monkey is suppose to be getting one so that should be fun.

Coming in second is Red wearing big boy underwear to bed instead of pull ups. He has been dried for a really long time in the pull ups and J and I decided that we'd take the next step and let him wear real underwear. It has been about 3 nights and no accidents. I can't even tell you how exciting that is to not have to buy anymore pull ups. Once we are done with diapers it will be great!

A Peanut update: She is now 17 months old and she is starting to talk so much. If you watched the video on J's blog you can see hear her saying "Cheese" to the camera. She is too funny. She has also learned the word NO. It. Drives. Me. Nuts. to hear her saying NOOOO to most everything. She used to only say Yes. I guess this way she can communicate better with us. Trying to be positive :) I've decided to full force potty train her after the kids spring break. She is totally ready and actually asks to sit on the potty. She still has the sweet little smile and her personality is a bit of a stinker in her. At my dad's she was teasing him with a piece of paper. She would reach it out to him, like she was going to give it to him, but once he reached for it she pulled it back and walked backwards. It was pretty funny to watch.
