Wishing For Spring

I have lived in Spokane for all of my life, so I know all to well that we have a while to go before true spring-like weather graces us with its presence. So, as long as there is a little bit of sunshine we are determined to get out and go for walks as a family! Here are a few picks of our latest walk.

Bath Time Fun

We have been patiently waiting for the time when both of our children could take a bath at the same time. For that to happen two things needed to fall into line. One, McKenna needed to be big enough to sit up. And two, Marek needed to be able to be in the tub with her and not try to lovingly drown her. Thankfully the stars have aligned and bath time is for two now! :) Marek is loving having his sissy in the tub and McKenna is enjoying chilling/floating along in her bumbo. Its great for Brandon and I too because we get to kill two birds with one stone and get both of our little people clean at the same time!!! Here are some pics of tub time.

Sitting Pretty

We officially have a sitter in our midst! McKenna has actually been sitting unassisted for over a month! Go baby girl!!! Its crazy how fast the progression happens. It seems like only a few weeks ago she would wobble and topple over, and now she can sit for nearly as long as she chooses. We timed her the other night and she sat and played with toys without falling over for over a half an hour! Impressive! :) I fear crawling is just around the corner! I'm just not ready for her to be mobile yet!!!

Potty Time

I have to admit that Marek has been ready to be potty trained for a while, but the though of doing it for me was daunting. So, last Thursday armed with stickers, a potty chart I had printed off of the Internet and treats galore I decided it was time! Right from the get go he wasn't really keen on the idea of wearing underwear, but when he walked into the bathroom and saw the stickers, potty chart, and rewards taped on the mirror he was all in. And I'm happy to report that a week out he is doing great! There are days when we have no accidents, and if we do it is more my fault for letting a long period of time pass by without putting him on the potty. Funny note too, he likes to climb on the big potty to do his business now as apposed to going on his cute frog potty chair. Go figure. Now we just have to figure out a way to get him to go number 2 in the potty.
