Here she comes...

Miss America!

Tonight we will be enjoying the Miss America Pageant. We love watching this together every year. We'll be enjoying brownies from the great state of Minnesota & Cheetos hailing from Texas all while rooting for Miss Missouri, Kansas, New York & New Jersey (and whoever else we decide is pretty!).

I've been waiting for this night for months!

From the mouth of my babe...

Jack (discovering that he is different from mommy): Mama! Me no have boobs!

No son, you don't.

A New Favorite

I just added a new link to my blog. I found her work on etsy & think it's amazing. I'm going to have to start saving...

Drumroll please...

Jack peed on the potty for the first time ever today! Okay, he actually peed all over the bathroom floor, but he was sitting on his potty when he did it. I forgot to put on the little boy pee guard. But still, if you are a parent, you know this is HUGE. We haven't even been doing any real potty training, we've just had a potty in the bathroom for a few months. He likes to sit on it while fully clothed.

But, today I was going to the bathroom & he asked me to take his pants off so he could go too. He just sat there smiling at me (I ignored him & read my magazine. Come on, can't I have a moment of privacy!) When I was done he got up too & mimed flushing his potty & ran out of the bathroom. A few seconds later I heard him say, "Oh! Again!" and he ran back into the bathroom, sat on his potty & peed!

We danced a little pee-pee celebration dance afterwards.

Maybe this potty training thing will be easier than I thought.

The Best Christmas Present Ever

My parents got us a membership to The Magic House. I'm so excited about this because Jack loves it there & is entertained for hours. We all went after Christmas & it was a madhouse, but so much fun.


A few Christmas photos. Jack got something on the camera lens Christmas Eve, so some of the photos are a little fuzzy. Booo.


Jack loved opening presents. He didn't even care what was in the wrapping, just that he got to open more gifts!

Too many presents!!! This photo shows you what we're going through right now. It's Christmas detox at our house. Everyday I'm asked for "candy, candy, candy!", "treat please mama!" along with many typical 2 1/2 year old tantrums.
