Growing Up

Growing up is hard to do. Seriously, have you ever looked back and realized how easy life "once was"?

And then have you ever realized how fast everyone around you is growing up, specifically your children?

Take this one...such a sweet good natured baby. He is growing up SO FAST! He is already wearing 6-9 month old clothes, and he is only 3 months old! He is such a ball (literally) of joy!

And this little man, and yes he has officially become a man because he is now sporting "undawares". He is doing a mighty fine job too. Woke up on Tuesday morning and told me "no more diapers". Luckily we did have some buzz "undawares" on hand and we jumped on in. He even gets a "buzz" card every time he goes potty (clearance V-day cards...)

The biggest hurdle was crossed last night with the enticement of a HUGE chocolate donut from Glaziers- hey whatever helps ya poop...right?

And this sweet "spirited" girl...we register her for kindergarten on Monday morning. Part of me is definitely ready for her to be gone in the mornings, and the other half wants her to stay sweet and innocent for as long as possible. Homeschool? Not an option for either of us...she needs the interaction and I need "a break".

You have the most adorable kids. I also agree that they grow too fast. Isn't that a big step registering for kindergarten? She'll love it and you will too!

Love that fat baby! Congrats on the potty training! Kindergarten is the best! We are big fans at our house. She will love it, and so will you!

Yeah for Bennett being such a big boy! Who wouldn't go #2 for a big donut like that??? Miles is a doll and Halle will be running the elementary school before you know it. They DO grow up too fast..

yes, they are getting so big! so fast! Potty training is 4 thumbs down for us (counting mine, and ike's thumbs...ky wants nothing to do with it). If i put him on the potty every 30 minutes we do kind of okay. But....then he'll wet his pants and not even now what he's doing. Is there a magic switch? A hidden button?? I want to give up. I wish we lived closer so Ike could see how cool bennett is in his underwares!! Maybe that would help inspire him. :) I miss you. we need to talk soon. xoxo

What a sweet smile for Miles... 3 months already? Bennett looks SO grown up & potty trained- impressive! (I just found a picture from when you guys moved here, I mean there, he was barely 1 and now look at him!) Oh and Halle just makes me smile! We sure miss that princess-loving, spunky girl!
