New Tricks



Yesterday after Tucker hid in the closet to fill his pants saying he was "being shy" he stayed dry all day! He even learned to pee outside. Silly boys. He even stayed dry all night! I told him that if he will poop in the toilet we can go to Chucky Cheese. Every time he's peed since he's asked if we can go to Chucky Cheese now. He says funny things all the time so it's hard to remember them all. Here are a couple; The other day I told him " I love you so bad" He said "Not so bad, I love you so MUCH," like I was so dumb. He always has to have his chocolate milk(instant breakfast) when he wakes up and before he goes to bed, last night I gave him pink milk(strawberry) instead and he said it was really good, but this morning when I asked him if he wanted pink milk again he said, "I need chocolate milk, I'm not so tasty about pink milk."
This may be my favorite drawing of Tucker's up to date! He was sitting on the kitchen floor drawing and showed me this-"It's a shark, and his friend." Amazing!

Charlotte has learned some cute new tricks. She can grab what she means to grab, usually links, and gets them straight to her mouth, right where she wants them. She has also discovered her feet. As soon as she is lying down she will grab hold of them and roll from side to side. I know it won't be long before she combines these tricks and can get her toes in her mouth. That was Tucker's favorite trick in the bath as a baby. Charlotte is working hard at learning to sit on her own, I can't get her to relax in her baby tub because she keeps pulling herself up from her reclined position to sit up, then she tips to the side or straight forward into her own lap. She still loves blowing bubbles and laughing at Tucker. She is pretty ticklish and very adored. Everyone constantly comments on her long, curly eyelashes and her tiny button nose.
Trent has been doing some new tricks too. With only 4 weeks left before we move and lots of projects to complete his schedule has changed. He spends Mon-Wed at his shop fixing cars and Thurs-Sat doing the home addition for Sister Bronson or finishing projects at our house. He has already gotten our new lawn even and growing grass .put closet doors in all the bedrooms,and installed a new front door. Now he is working on finishing the rock and stucco on our house and when that is finished will be finishing the updates in our master bathroom. Having him working outside here at the house has been great! Tucker gets to play outside and see Daddy and I get to see him, have lunch with him, and have a little break from Tucker.

I can't get enough of your adorable children. Thank heavens for my preschool class where I get to hear and see the antics of a dozen 3-5 year olds. None as cute, funny, and smart as Tucker though.

Isabel's comment on Tucker's drawings: "Wow. He's better than me..."
Glad to hear potty training is picking up. Taj wet our bed twice. If we put a pull up on him he wakes up dry 11 hours later. But the 2 nites we forget...

I've been bragging about the shark drawing for at least a week now.
