Update on the kiddos.....

So much has happened this past month. I have been keeping a running list of all the things that I wanted to post. And now I can't think of one thing. Go figure.

Ashley has been potty trained for the last month now. It is sooooo nice. It all started one Saturday. She woke up from her nap and said, "mommy, I do not want to wear diapers anymore." I was not prepared at all. I had some little bloomers that I put on her. She had a few accidents the first couple of days. She has not worn a diaper since that day. She feels so much lighter and her clothes fit better without the bulky diaper.

Ashley has perfected riding and steering her tricycle. It took a while to get the steering down, but we finally got it the last couple of days or so. She swings on the normal swings now and wants to go really high. I think that we hit the "terrible twos" early, because she seems so much easier to reason with now. She is so much more agreeable and I feel like I can talk to her like a normal human. We have not had any tantrums or silliness since pretty much before her birthday. It is so nice.

Aidan is 7 months now. He is such a happy go lucky little guy. He sits unsupported, scoots backwards and forwards, and LOVES feeding himself cheerios and banannas. He also says "Dada"!! The first time that we heard it, was in the car coming back from Chicago last weekend. Tonight, he said it a bunch of times. It is so cute! I have tried to get it on video but, every time I finally get the camera, and turn it on, he is done talking.
