Randoms...

A whole lot of 'not much' has been going on around here lately- which is nice since my busy season has officially started.  Here's a random sampling of pictures...
Swinging at the Carden family picnic.  It's so weird seeing him on a "big kid" swing!


These lovely birds love spending time in our backyard... this was the first time we had ever seen them- at 6:30am just strutting their stuff on our back fence.  Silly birds.  Glad they're outside and I'm inside!!! 


Zachary has always been our baby that doesn't wake up super fast in the morning... he loves to get in bed and have some extra snuggle time before truly waking up.  Deacon was like this for a bit, but he mainly just wanted to get in bed with us to watch t.v.- Zac is just as happy laying there with us while we talk or read a book.  It's one of my favorite things... 




Deacon loves to have his nails painted... he pretty much has always been this way- and we've always obliged.  Last year, however, we had to start just painting his toe nails since Carden says "no" to nail polish for everyone 5th grade and younger.  I'm never too excited to paint Deacon's nails because he's super squirmy... and also, Zac wants his nails painted too- which is never easy.  But tonight I finally agreed to it, and both boys laid in bed while I painted their toenails.  Who says you need a girl to have a spa day?  





Zac is doing such a great job with potty training... he'd be doing a million times better if we would stay consistent and just push it a bit more.  But I'll be honest- I'm lazy and potty training is hard with two kids!!!  With one kid I thought it was a lot easier... it wasn't "easy" but it was much easier.  Add to it that Zac is the crazy stubborn one, and it's just not as easy as it was with Deacon.  However!- Zachary is less into rewards than Deacon... so we don't need to bribe him to go to the bathroom... and the other positive is that Zac will never pee if he's naked- so that helps tremendously while we're at home.  But the minute we leave the house in a pull-up or a diaper, he's going to revert back to peeing in his diaper (or, as Zac says, "peeing in my bottom").  These pictures were taken the evening that he was being crazy obsessive about his San Diego hat... this hat made everything more enjoyable.
