Random, Catch up post

I am inside all day with a snow day and a sick boy. I pride myself in how few times John Thomas has been sick (never taken antibiotics but has been on steroids once) it breaks my heart to see him sick but there is something so great about him wanting to curl up and sleep on me all day. Anyway, perfect day to catch up on here.

Beginning of November I finally decided to potty train. I heard all these horror stories about potty training so I kept postponing. However, it was fairly easy! He had a couple accidents the second day and that was it! We stayed home Friday afternoon-Sunday and he went back to school on Monday and playcare at the gym that night with no accidents! He had a chart that he put a sticker on every time he used the potty and it worked like a charm! Sunday night Tommy and I took him to the pet store to get a fish as his big boy prize. He, of course, named the fish Dinosaur Fishy. We have had a couple accidents here and there but overall I am amazed at how easy it was:) I am sure this is a plus to waiting so long, he will be 3 the end of January.

This makes me laugh! Just eating a little popcorn:) JT has absolutely zero interest in basketball. He likes Rudy (the mascot), popcorn and playing the ipad.


Tommy had a basketball tournament in Hawaii over Thanksgiving which unfortunately JT and I were not able to go on so we did the next best thing – spent a week in Alabama

While in Alabama we celebrated one year since I had Francis. I could  never imagined what all I would go through in the next year. I can’t wait for the day to hold her in my arms again.2013-11-25 20.45.42

John Thomas did manage to capture this one picture of himself. I was impressed! 2013-11-29 21.14.09
