I was looking through my pictures and I guess I never posted about Tyler going Potty! He has done so well! Its been about 2 months now! We are so proud of him. The whole process of potty training was really easy! We started with going poop in the potty first! I always knew when he was about to go and I would run him to the potty to go. We used the sticker method, and he loved it. He caught on really fast. I rather change a pee diaper than a poop! Right? Who wouldn't? I really wanted him out of diapers before we had Kelsey, but I was huge and didn't have the energy to do it. Then out of the blue I decided to work with him and see if he was ready. Sure enough he did it. I tried the sticker thing again and he liked it, but not as much. So now I had to come up with something different. He LOVES M&Ms. He got 2 M&Ms for going pee and he loved it. Sometimes he would try and go just to get another one! We are so proud of him!

Bird house

About a week ago Tyler and I made a bird house. He did so good. This was the first time I let him use glue! It went really well. I thought for sure that I was going to have to clean up the whole bottle. He had so much fun! He picked out all of the colors and went to town.

Food is Yummy for my Tummy!

Kelsey tried her first cereal about a month ago! She loved it! I was so excited that she took it so well. Tyler on the other hand didn't like it at all. Kelsey really needed something besides mommy milk. She just wasn't getting enough to eat. She is doing much better sleeping now that she eats...ok just a little. I don't know whats up with her not sleeping. She has tried peas and green beans! She loves the peas and not a big fan on the green beans. She has also moved from the Bumbo to the high chair! We just love her to pieces! She is our little princess!

Silly Putty

Pinterest is the best! I have found so many cute things to do with Tyler! We made some silly putty! Way fun! At first he didn't want to get his hands dirty, but then he thought it was so much fun. He played with it all day. I love making new thing with him.

Febuary 5th was the first time Tyler went to Sunbeams. It was the same day Kelsey was blessed so it was a little crazy. I forgot to get a picture old of his first time, but I took one the second time. Tyler had just turned three and he started sunbeams in Jan. Well we waited a little to take him since, we didn't take Kelsey until she was 4 weeks to church. I wanted him to get use to her and not make him think that since we had a new baby then everything will change. The first time he went he did so good. The next time i took him and it did not go so well. For some reason he does so good when Brian drops him off to class. Now he loves it and can't wait to go. He has such a great teacher. Last week on the way home we asked him was he learned and he was saying that they saw some fish. His teacher brought some gold fish. Tyler was saying something that the fish names was Jonah, but it didn't sound like Jonah. Then Brian figured it out! Tyler was saying that J onah got eaten by a big fish. It was way cute.

Mother's Day

"I don't hesitate to promise you that the day will come, if you nurture your children and love and teach in righteousness, you will get on your knees with tears in your eyes and thank the Lord for blessing you".
 Gordon B. Hinckley


Kelsey has been keeping us very busy! She loves to play! Nothing like her brother. When Tyler was little I was able to lay him down and he would play by himself for hours. Not our little girl. She always needs someone to play with her. Good thing for a older brother. We just love her to death.

Summer food

Now that it is summer, we have been eating tons of summer foods. We have a couple of strawberry stands near our house, so I decided to get some and they were 9 for the berries and 5 for the cherries. I walked up and told the guy what I wanted and he said "For you it will be 7" I said for both? "yep"....ok. I didn't complain at all. I mean who would. My guess is that either he felt sorry for me (two kids in the car, one was crying, the other was mad)(Tyler didn't want to go home),or I looked cute.

Aunt Keri

My sister was able to come visit us all the way from Florida! We had so much fun spoling her. It has been a year and a half since we last saw each other! It makes it really hard not to have family around. We sure loved having her here with us.
Our fist adventure was going to the Fresno Zoo! Which was Kelsey's first time!
Poor Keri had to sit in the back with the kids! Tyler loved it, she read books to him the entire time.
We then went to dinner for an early Birthday dinner for Keri! We ate at Outback! Then a quick stop to the Fresno Temple!
We went golfing and played some games inside! Tyler was so excited to show Aunt Keri everything.
