I love her and I know there are so so many others who read her blog religiously like I do.
This weekend we walked a lot! Here are some of the things we did:
My younger (oldest) brother Alex was in a play this past weekend called Shirt Powers. It's written by Lisa Cripps-Downey and it was directed by Bill Downey. It was probably one of the best show I've ever seen done by teens. It was all about labels, they begin around middle school age and they never quite go away. But we have the power to show others who we are. As you can tell I loved it!
This was so sweet and a little bit awkward because we both leaned in to kiss each other on the cheek and we almost ended up kissing. Oh well, he is my brother!
My babies love each other and my heart beams when I see things like this.
Our boy is totally potty trained. He goes potty and poop without being asked to go. He only needs help putting his undies and shorts/pants back on. My advice was given to me by another mom. Wait until he/she is 3, it takes about a week and then you don't have to stress about accidents - EVER! That is unless you have a kid that totally wants to go on the potty earlier. Teague still gets a sucker for going poop and he wears his undies to bed for his nap and at night. I'm telling you, if you want stress free, wait till they're three.
FYI: He's totally playing. I just happened to take this photo when he was being totally goofy. The rest is on video and it's pretty hilarious!
Teague update: things down there are better than I expected. We are praying the fluid around his left teste goes down before he has a second surgery to bring that right one back down again. It's hanging out with the scar tissue from the first surgery. I'm so thankful! Our next appt. is in 6 months from now. We are taking it slow.
