It feels like Spring here today and I am loving it! It's been a super mild winter, but when it starts to warm up here, I seriously get giddy inside. Oliver, who prays every night that he'll get to wear short-sleeves and shorts, was so excited to put on a short-sleeve shirt today! He's outside playing as I write this. I fully expect to not see him until dinner time. He made a "camp-site" in an empty lot by our house where he found an old (disgusting, but I'm biting my tongue in the name of imaginative play) lawn chair pad that he "sleeps" on and has arranged a pile of sticks in to a "fire." Amelia and he love to go out there and "camp." It made me remember my days of "camping" in our backyard growing up, though I think I remember it more as playing "being homeless." Weird how times change. Anyway, on to recent happenings...
Amelia's friend, Kailey, gave her this Spiderman (woman??) dress. Fits her like a glove, though it is a tad bit revealing.
Christian and I both joke that when Eloise sees Amelia coming, she gets really scared and with a fast wiggle and arm-wave, tries as hard as she can to get away. Amelia loves Eloise- sometimes a bit too much, as you can see from Eloise's face.:)
Oliver and I hit up Home Depot last weekend for their kids' workshop. We made this really cool car. It was so fun. They do it the first Saturday of every month and it's totally free and they make the coolest toys. I highly recommend it. So does Oliver.
Amelia has discovered the power of the stool. The sky's the limit now with what she can get in to.
Guess who's potty trained?? AMELIA!! Yeah! She earned this awesome Sleeping Beauty wand when she went a whole day without any accidents.
She loves going on the potty and seriously goes like 12 times a day. To say I hate this phase of toddler-ship is an understatement. Her hands are seriously dry and cracked from all the hand-washing.
