I had a birthday...

So my b-day was last week and I gotta say it was fabulous!! Eliott took the day off. So in the morning he madfabe sure Seth got to the bus and then he made me breakfast in bed! I have playgroup/biggest loser weigh in on wednesday morning so he let me go by myself!! It was so fun to just be able to chat w/ my friends and not have to worry about the kids. I have these super cute shoes in white and black and I was telling Eliott I wanted them in brown too so he told me to just go buy them! Wow, okay! Well they didn't come in brown, I was a little bummed. So for my day he got me this fabulous hair straightner!! (thanks Julie for helping him!!) I love it! So I pretty much got to do whatever I wanted all day. He had planned on taking me to dinner but the kids were sick so I didn't want some poor girl to have to watch them and get sick too. So we ordered pizza and Eliott got me my all-time favorite, mint chocolate chip ice cream from baskin robins. and then I got to watch law and order all night. it was a fabulous day!! Thanks Eliott!!!!

Big things over here...

So a little while ago my brothers convinced Seth to take his training wheels off. He had them off for about a month or so and couldn't figure out how to ride so he kept asking us to put them back on. Finally Eliott told him if he didn't figure it out by the afternoon on Saturday he would put them back on. At like 11:00 on that saturday morning he came running inside and told Eliott he could throw the training wheels away. He had figured it out and in the backyard on the grass no less! He loves it and everyday asks if we can go out front so he can ride on the street!

Lexi is in undies!!!

So last week Lexi decided she wanted to be a big girl and use the potty! I don't know how I have lucked out but I have had a seriously easy time potty training. Saturday, Sunday and Monday she asked to go potty and actually did. #1 and #2!!! So Monday after she did that I decided it was time. The first day was rough but she did great. She insisted on having Riley's helmet and knee/elbow pads on, and I thought it was funny! So there she is!

She has been fabulous! She has had a couple accidents during nap time but has woken up every morning completely dry. (yes I am one of those moms that ditch the diaper as soon as undies go on so she wears undies to bed!) When she has an accident she calls it "spill" It is so cute except that means I have to clean up pee! So I only have 1 left in diapers and only have to buy 1 box a month now!! Can I tell you how excited I am?!!!!!
