Awesome Day!

Today, Nora:

- Rolled over from her back to her tummy for the first time
- Put herself back to sleep when she woke up just now w/ no crying!

She is so active right now.  When I sit her down anywhere she immediately lunges forward and ends up on her belly.  It's only a matter of time.... I need to keep pushing her butt down.  I kid, I kid... sorta.

I took a few pics w/ photobooth on my computer today - enjoy!

Strange, but True

Having two children reminds me all the time that my children don't always reflect my ability to parent - for better or worse!  The latest case-in-point: potty training.

Joseph has been in undies for several months, now.  He does OK, but his underwear and the diaper sprayer on the toilet are intimately aquainted.  The kid does not like to poop on the potty. 

In contrast, Nora, my SEVEN MONTH OLD has not had a poopy diaper in about 3 weeks.  What the what?  I know, right?  It's as simple as this: she grunts a particular way.  I say, "Oh, do you have to poop?" and take her to the bathroom.  I sit her on the seat, and she does her business.  The end.  It could not be any more awesome (well, maybe if I could figure out her pee queues also). 

I don't think I should take credit for Nora's success any more than I have the burden of Joseph's reticent nature.  It just is.  Everyone tells me he won't go to college in diapers.  We'll see!  We started a sticker chart in a last ditch effort to appeal to his material side.  He's been eying a particular car carrier and I've promised it to him if he fills up his chart (10 stickers). 

I ain't too proud to bribe!

Yes, we have been that busy.

I know, it's been 2 months.  Bad Mama.  We've really been that busy.  Do you want proof?

Taking down the back porch (in progress)
Removing plaster in the dining room
And a chimney
  Did I mention the chimney went up THREE floors?

Demoing the kitchen
My new kitchen.  Did you know you could roast a whole chicken on a grill?
And the porch walls are perfect height for dish washing.  

It's like camping!  With a toddler and a baby!  For 2 months!  Good stuff. 

So... I'm going to try and go back and hit the highlights of the last two months with the kiddos (there's a lot!) but you'll have to be patient.
