Happy 30th Birthday Kyle

Wednesday, August 25, 2010


We had such a fun time camping at the Cleary's Cabin this last weekend. This was the first camping trip for the boys, here's a little bit of what we did:

Potty trained in the great outdoors.
Learned to eat sunflower seeds.
Ate corn on the cobb.
Nico spent some time in the Kelty pack, he slept for a while in there too.
Elio being cute.
and Nico being cute too. I LOVE this pic, I think it's a new one for the wall.
 We also played horse shoes, rode the Mule, had an intense game of washers, sat around the campfire and enjoyed hanging out with our friends.

Potty training has been pretty fun. We have had a few minor accidents, but I'd say it's going really well. The first couple of days, I would have to bring Mr. E to the bathroom throughout the day, and slowly he is starting to go on his own without me asking. We even ran a few errands yesterday without any problems.

Elio is loving all the naked time he's getting, however I think it's a bit uncomfortable for the guy working on our house and anyone else that pops in. Sorry in advance if you stop by!

This was one of Elio's funny moments in the last few days. He found my face mask in my nightstand. He wrapped it around his waist, and was running around calling himself Super Elio. I couldn't resist, I had to take a picture.

I gave Nico a bottle on the floor while I was trying to get a few things done around the house. When I came back to check on him, he was out. The pillow and toys we compliments of Elio.

Potty Training , Crawling, Housework, & Sandbox

As I'm sitting here about to tell you what a great first day of potty training Elio had yesterday, I feel something warm on my leg. Yes, Elio is sitting next to me in the chair, and he has just peed. Well, yesterday went really good, no accidents. The only funny thing was, we were on our way outside, I told him he could pee outside. So he stood right at the door and peed on the doormat. I guess that we a little miss communication on my part. I had to laugh, technically  he did pee outside. Elio ran around naked for a big part of the day, I think he had a lot of fun. So today is day two, cross your fingers for us.

Here's a little of what we did yesterday:
I was wearing an apron while I was making dinner...
Elio wanted to wear one too.
We went to feed the chickens.
He has some really cute undies but 
of course he loves being naked!

In other news, Nico is crawling. Full on crawling, it seemed like he was scooting around forever. I'd say that's not too bad, crawling at 6 months is great. I think he's trying to keep up with Elio, because he's starting to pull himself up on furniture too.

We've been having a little work done on our house. We are having the old trim removed, the rot repaired, new trim board put on and then new gutters.  There's been a lot of banging and load noises (nap time's been fun) but it's going to be well worth it, and it looks SO much better!

We've also been working on paint colors. I think we've decided to do a greyish brownish color with white trim. Oh, and a pink front door (would you expect anything less from me?).  Love it! (who knows when we will actually get around to painting though)
Kyle built this great little sandbox for the boys last weekend. I think it's going to be a great thing for the summer.
