Why a blog?

This is my first time to ever do anything like this so please bare with me. I decided to start a blog mostly for myself. I wanted to keep track of all the crazy things that go on in our house on a daily basis. I also thought this would be good for my soul and keep me smiling and laughing even when I feel defeated by my littles at the end of the day. I'm sure there are a lot of blogs out there similar to this one and it may just bore people but that's alright. This is us, me and my littles!

Little changes

Big things are happening in the Thomas house. Jude started crawling a couple weeks ago but just really started taking off these past few days. I'll set her down in one room only to find her in another room minutes later. This has been fun and easy at times but also challenging since the littles have so many tiny toys and things she can choke on. Beau loves to peal the paper off crayons so Jude has gaged on those a few times. The other day we couldn't find Jude because she was sitting behind BJ's recliner, a spot I never thought she would find. She's very proud of herself. Her favorite place to go, and my least favorite, is over to the the art easel. She pushes it around or tries to eat the chalk, tear the paper...everything has to be put away now! Now that she is on the ground and able to explore everything around her, she has discovered Titan, our lab. She has always been interested in him and drools heavily whenever she seems him but NOW she can actually crawl to him. I guess it's time to put the baby gates back up...

Now onto Beau...I think she has got this whole potty training thing down, finally! She has been wearing panties (or "panny" as she says) for the past couple days and just this morning she made a very large deposit in the potty...a first for her. I'm hopeful this is the end of Beau wearing adult diapers, not really but she's pretty close :) I'm really looking forward to just buying diapers for one child. Now if I could just get her to listen and obey! Just a few minutes ago Beau decided to take away a toy Bella was playing with. It's a doll trunk that they keep baby clothes in and it can be quite heavy when they stuff it full of junk. Beau was just standing there holding it and Bella and I were both telling her to give it back. I probably told her to drop it and put it down 3 times when she finally decided to obey. Out of defiance and stubbornness, she looked at Bella and dropped the trunk as hard as she could, not realizing it was going to land on her toes...oh Beau. "My shrow, my shrow!". Bella just grinned as she picked the trunk up and walked away.
