This blog is about 6 months overdue and I don’t know where to start. Audrey and Joshua are almost 2 and 4. It has been a very busy fall and winter thus far.
Baby Audrey is No Longer a Baby
I can’t believe my baby Aud’s is a toddler. She is still teeny tiny, but has quite the vocabulary (of which Josh and I can only decode for the most part). Her most recent new word was “cool bus” today in the car. She was so excited and of course Josh and I were so proud and had to clap and cheer. She has also managed to potty train herself for the most part these last few months – both poop and pee. There’s only one glitch – she hates wearing underwear. However, she has learned that by yelling “POOOP”, she immediately gets our attention. Hence, she plays the “poop card” anytime she wants us. I’m searching for solutions about how to handle this one, so if you’re reading this and have an idea – PLEASE EMAIL ME.
Big Brother Joshua
Joshua’s is becoming such a big boy. You know they are getting big when you start to have a hard time lifting them into the car seat and they’re on the verge of moving to a booster seat. He really has changed over the last 6 months – he absolutely LOVES snow blowing, shoveling, jumper cables and anything that has to do with the being outdoors and anything that involves fixing things. Josh also LOVES his new preschool. Four friends and I started a home preschool coop this past fall and we all have boys who are the same age. It has been such a wonderful experience getting to know the children, teaching them, and watching them grow and change. The boys have become GREAT friends and it has been so much fun getting to know their families.
We have also enjoyed several fun trips up to Grandpa and Grandma’s house over the past few months. Although Morris is a long car ride, the kids jump at the chance to visit Grandpa and Grandma. During one of our stays this fall, Josh got to participate in the harvest riding in combines, tractors, and experiencing first-hand what it’s like to be a farmer. He had SUCH A BLAST and still talks about it. While Grandpa and Josh were in the field, Audrey bonded with Grandma at the house.
We went on our annual Florida trip this past month had a wonderful time relaxing and just being able to enjoy the outdoors. The weather was in the 80’s almost the whole time we were there which was such a treat. Our daily activities involved swimming, swimming and more swimming.
It is one of my New Year’s resolutions to keep this website more up-to-date. Hopefully I can keep up with it.
