"Isn't this excitin'?! "

The title of this post is what Anna says on the potty all the time. :) She's almost 2 1/2. I just have to brag for a moment- she wore underwear all day today with no accidents!!! She did wear a diaper for her nap, but woke up dry and went right to the potty and did her business. I can't even tell you how happy this makes me. I'm sure you understand. Yesterday every time I went into the bathroom there was a dirty pull-up laying on the floor. Um, no. I can't afford that. So I told Casey she was not going to wear one at all today. She could pee in her underwear all she wanted. Apparently she didn't like the idea of that.

These two make me laugh. They are getting along better these days, but they'll both be glad when summer is here and they can hang out with their brothers more.

I knew the day would come, but I don't feel ready. Bethany is becoming mobile and it's really putting a crimp in my lifestyle. She is dragging herself over to interesting objects. She's starting to nibble on books.
The poor thing has been sick all week. She's been coughing and her nose is raw from all the snot running out. But she's sleeping pretty good at night, so I'm extremely thankful for that.

Table Conversation

Sometimes I like to look through my blog and laugh at the things the boys say.

Adam is obsessed with where on the animal cuts of meat come from. Monday night Casey made a ham, and the package said "butt" on it. Well, the kids obviously found this hilarious. So while we were eating, there was a (rare) brief moment of silence, and Adam says, "Yeah, it's just not supper without a pork butt."
And Tommy says in his 5 year old manly voice, (very slow and drawn out), "It's ALL about the pork butt..."

And so are the days of our lives.

Fun with B.B.

I can't believe Bethany is 5 months old already! We sure are glad she's a part of our family.

Thomas likes to share the silky blanket with his baby sister. He frequently declares that she's the "best" one in the family. I'm not sure why, probably because she's so darn cute.

Here B. is helping Daddy with Scrabble. Sometimes when he's stumped she whispers ideas into his ear. No wonder he always wins.

B. likes to go for rides in the Bumbo seat. When you have big brothers, everything turns into a vehicle.

B. likes to lounge around in her new jammies from Aunt Laurie. These are my favorite- they fit nice and snug, yet roomy enough in the feet (from Children's Place).
