Arboretum Pics

Oh, it was so much fun this week to go to the Dallas Arboretum. It is our little tradition to go at least once in the spring to see all of the flowers. Plus, they have face painting and a petting zoo for the kids on Mondays.

This was one of the first years that I have been able to go and the kids didn't run away from me and were really good at the Arboretum! We spent four hours there, which was a little too much for me. It took me the rest of the day to recover! It was well worth it and one of our last little outings before the baby.

Anyone there?

I haven't posted in forever. Is anyone still checking?

Well, I got out the camera cause I need to take some momentous pictures of Jackson. I was planning to start potty training with him this weekend, but after a Saturday seminar with Love and Logic Doc Jim Fay, it got me thinking about getting Jackson excited first.

I got excited about going this morning and pulled out all of his fun potty stuff like Buzz Lightyear underwear and Ernie underwear. He also liked the potty seat and pull-ups. He sat on there and it was funny because he was looking to me about how to get up there. He would turn one way and then another. And just looked puzzled, how do I put myself on this thing?

He then sat and looked proud that he did it. We practiced with pulling up underwear, etc. and then watched Potty Power. He was excited. I just wish Kaitlyn (at school) was here to help. I know she is a good example and has been a little mommy to him lately.

We are definitely ready for him to be in the big leagues with Kaitlyn. Of course, it is convenient in the beginning not to have to worry about asking or making sure he goes to the bathroom every 30 minutes, but I am crossing my fingers he will catch on fast since we waited a little longer to make sure he was interested and ready.

Here are some random pics and I will post some more of him on the potty. It is just so cute. Only 8 more weeks or possibly 6 (if induced early) until #3 comes. Just going through all of the baby stuff is so fun, but there is still so much to do before he comes! Do I look huge?
