Lately...





found gum in daddy's drawer.

We have been involved in the lovely task of potty training...Yeah for Carter. He is doing really well and very eager and happy to get his little bum up on the big boy toilet. His motivation....Carters prize box. We decorated a box together and he got to pick out prizes at the store to put in his box. He gets so excited to pick out a prize when he goes on the potty. So fun to see him proud of himself and jump for joy for his big accomplishments.

Shelly, I've just created a blog account so I can get involved with your blog. Carter looks so proud of himself for being a big boy. I could just squish him! These will be "naked days" for a while. The treat box is such a cute idea. You're a good Mom.
Love you and those adorable boys!

How cute, I TOTALLY know how this goes...we're in full swing at our house and I fear leaving the house sometimes (without a pull up!). Good luck

It was so much fun to ichat with you all before we left town and to find the updated blogs when we got back. What a sweet tribute to Ash. You are so thoughtful. I loved seeing Carter in action over his box and his motorcycles, etc. You are such a great Mom and certainly came up with a great idea with that box. Tell my Champ that I am so proud of him. It was also fun to see Sawyer and his chunky little buns. What an adorable family you all are. I miss you so much. ILYT oxoxox
