June Thus Far

The kids had a sleepover at my mom's house and Shaun and I (and Miley) went on a date! It was really nice to have a night to not have to worry about putting the older kids to bed. My mom definitely didn't have it easy though. This was Gage's first sleepover and he was pretty wild. He didn't go to sleep until midnight and was up the next morning by 6! I, on the other hand, got to sleep in until 10 thanks to my wonderful husband. I fed Miley once at 3 and again at 7 and slept the rest of the time. It was very much needed! The next afternoon we met my mom and the kids at EZ Orchard's strawberry shortcake stand! That was also very much needed! YUM!

Excited for his first sleepover!
 Showin his muscles!

Maisey's friend learned how to ride his bike with out training wheels a few weeks ago, so Maisey wanted to give it a try. It didn't go super well, but there weren't any crashes. I don't think Shaun ever let go of the back of her seat though! Lucky him. . . he got to run around the neighborhood hunched over all evening! I think she would have actually done ok if she wasn't so worried about honking the horn on the handle bars. She was pretty funny though. She was way excited about it, but then when he actually started taking the training wheels off, she got pretty nervous. She even put on her elbow and knee pads from her roller skates! Haha!

Hopefully she'll get the hang of it by the end of summer!

We're still potty training around here! He is doing really well. He pretty much stays dry all day and I've even let him sleep in undies for his naps the last two days and he's stayed all dry! Our big problem right now is learning to not poop in the undies! He went once on the toilet a few days ago, but he's gone in his undies every day since then. :( Oh well, I'm sure we'll get there.

This is one of my favorite pictures from the past week! When I took this picture he told me he was "laying eggs"!!!!! What a silly boy!

This is why we started potty training in the first place, but he still does it. He told me tonight he didn't want to sleep in a pull-up, he wanted to sleep in undies! Sorry bud! Not sure we are quite ready for that yet.

These kids sure keep me busy! Maisey has a very inquisitive mind right now and asks a billion questions a day, actually an hour! Miley has hit a very fussy stage and doesn't like to be put down. And Gage, well as if potty training isn't enough, he climbs, he bugs Maisey, and most recently he attempts to pick Miley up! Eeeek! Like I said, these three make life crazy!

Miley was crying in her swing one day while I was trying to make lunch. The kids thought she needed their blankies, so they piled them on her and she ended up calming down and going to sleep!

Don't let Gage's sweetness fool you. Seconds after this picture you could find him shoving a toy in her mouth, trying to pick her up, and dragging her around the family room on her blanket!

I wonder what the second half of June will bring!

I adore the picture of the three of them. I don't know how you can stand the cuteness! :)

Love you
