Oh the old neglected blog. I have a little catching up to do. Here is all of our big news for the past two months...

I have started my own business. Sort of. Not from scratch. My boss at the company that I have worked for the past three years decided that he didn't want to continue to run one part of his company. Things had slowed down enough that it just didn't make sense for him to continue to employ someone to run it. So he just gave that part of his business to me. I was extremely nervous at first, but decided to take it on. My first business day was January 3rd. So far it has been going very well. I do real-estate/title related stuff. Not super fun, but it allows me to stay at home with the kids. I can do a little here, and a little there so it's perf

She got her cast off the week before Christmas. She was actually sad to see it go and asked to have it put back on. She healed perfectly! Our real news these days is that she is potty trained now. A friend suggested the 3 day potty training method. I tweaked it and we gave it a shot. You are supposed to throw out all of the diapers and stay at home for three days to focus on potty training only. She caught on so fast. I was completely prepared for the worst while we were out on the fourth day (3 cloth diapers lining the carseat and one in her bag for a quick clean-up at the store, 3 pairs of undies, 3 pairs of pants, and 3 pars of socks, as well as a plastic bag to put wet stuff in) and we still haven't had to use any of it!!! We started this two weeks ago, and this week she decided she didn't want to wear pull-ups to bed any more either. She has woken up dry two nights now. So proud!! This is big new because pull-ups/diapers for 2 kids is kind of expensive.

He is eating real food now! I started him on rice cereal last week and he LOVES it. It only took him a couple of days to figure out how to keep the stuff in his mouth and now he gets so excited when I put him in his Bumbo every night. He'll reach for the spoon and lean in for the next bite. I think we'll try out some apples and squash next week. He is also pretty much sitting up on his own now. He wobbles a little, but he is getting so strong!

Hmmmm, he got a helicopter for Christmas (a little one.) That's all I can think of that would be big news right now.

Whelp, that's it.
