Poo Poo in the Toilet!!!

Our Noah went poo poo in the toilet! Here is how it went down- we were eating breakfast and he pointed to his butt and said "Poo poo mommy!" So I grabbed him, ran upsatirs, took off his diaper, and sat him on the little potty. He sat there for probably ten minutes. He was looking at books and at one point, I read him this Potty book we bought him. I decided to leave him alone and the next thing we knew, he was saying " All done diaper." So I looked and he went! We were so excited. We were high fiving and he even took a picture next to his potty. He loved seeing his poop in there. He loved it so much that he didn't want to flush it away in the big potty. We called everyone and told them the news. Look how proud he is of his little accomplishment!

Tehachapi- Here we come!

Our new home is almost complete...we will hopefully be moving in at the end of this month. So you can imagine that Christmas is going to be crazy this year. We will be opening presents and packing them up directly into boxes.
We are so excited to have a place to call our own!!!


It's been a while!

It has been quite some time since I've updated this page. Russ has really gotten on me about it, so here are a few highlights from our life lately...

Max, we love and miss you!!!

We had to give away our little Max. We loved him dearly! We are living at my parents while our house is being built and it was just too difficult to have him here. Plus, Brody is on his way, so we felt that Max could use more attention than we can give him right now. It was hard to say goodbye, but we found him the perfect family to live with. They fell in love with him instantly. It breaks our hearts when Noah goes looking for him but Max now has five kids to play with. We'll miss you Max!
