Well Cruz and I decided that we should get some fresh air before this weekend brings in sleet, ice, and snow. We went to Earlywine park to run, play, swing, and slide at least fibe, (five) with fingers, times! So much fun with my little man today! Hopefully we can continue to entertain each other for the next few days when we may be stuck inside!!!
Here he's asking me "Mommy why you take my picture?"
So we finally finished the boys room (except our final tv purchase for the playroom). We decided that it would be best for the boys to share a bedroom so that we could make our back room a playroom for all of the toys, balls, cars, trains, games, etc. etc. They both turned out so cute and fun! Cruz is in heaven in "his" playroom! Yes, I don't think he's realized that someday soon, he will have to share it with baby bro Jett!
We took Cruz to the OU/Missouri basketball game today and he absolutely LOVED it! He stood the entire game and yelled and clapped and held up his #1 finger every time the band played Boomer Sooner! He has been taught well! His favorite part was when Boomer or Sooner (we're not quite sure which is which) came by and gave him a high five and fist bump!
It must have been a total success because the game wore him out so much that now at 4:38pm, he is still taking a nap!!!
Well my goal has been to have Cruz potty trained by the time Baby Jett comes in April. Since I have read that it is best to start with boys once they show interest etc. etc., we haven't pushed very hard with Cruz up to this point. Well folks, I have the answer to all you're potty training questions! Send them to Nana's for a week and voila'! Cruz has officially been in big boy undies for a week with only a few accidents!!! He has done fabulous with us here at the house and I think he's starting to get the hang of it at school too! I think Nana could charge big bucks for this service! I'm going ahead and reserving Jett's spot at "Nana's Potty Camp 2012!"
Mommy is sad! My baby is growing up way too fast!!!
Spending New Years in Vegas for the 2nd year in a row with Garrett's family and we have had a blast! Lots of shopping and spa time for this pregnant girl have left me feeling refreshed and re-energized for a new start to a new year! Its so exciting!
We spent the last hours of the decade at a small club/bar in the Wynn hotel called Blush. It had a retro swanky vibe and the DJ was playing all my favorite tunes all night! We watched fireworks on the patio at midnight and I toasted the new year with a swig of champagne a la orange juice! It got Jett fired up for hours!!!!
I'm just a regular chick trying to be the best mom, wife, friend, aunt, sister, employee and neighbor that I can be! My life is full of excitement right now and I'm trying to slow down and enjoy every single moment of it!!! I've been married to my high school sweetheart for six years and we have been truly blessed with two of the most precious little boys I know! We are so fortunate that God is present in our lives everyday and has provided us with far more than we could have ever imagined!
Thanks for visiting our family's little story book!
