Hello friends! It’s the end of the weekend for me (although when you read this it will be Monday) and I’d love to share with you all how the past week went and some fun things we did! I hope your week was great…..and I would love to hear about it in the comments if you want to share!
We had a relatively low key week around here. Lots of time spent inside because of the cold weather. We did manage to go grocery shopping (not my favorite thing to do with 2 kids) and we went to a friend’s house to hang out and practice our babywearing skills. Last week I talked about having trouble with the double hammock carry…..well, I’ve got it down now! And that’s my “I did it” pose below. Do you like? Haley’s also found herself her first little boyfriend. One of my friend’s sons loves to hug and kiss her. He just turned 1 so they’ll end up in the same grade. Isn’t that so funny!?
On Friday we started potty training Grady. I wish I could say we’re done and he’s potty trained……but he’s not. Potty training sucks. No wonder I’ve put it off for so long. We’ve been stuck in the house since Friday and honestly, I’m thinking of giving up and putting him back in diapers. He’s been doing great with peeing in the potty, but #2 is not going so well. We had a few accidents which I know is normal. If I keep him naked then he holds it and doesn’t go, and then when I put big boy undies on him he goes. I don’t want him to hold it and I don’t like cleaning it out of underwear either. Ugh. Decisions. It was nice this weekend because Eric had off on Friday, which gave us a 3 day weekend, but Eric’s back to work tomorrow (Monday), so I’ll be doing it alone. Wish me luck!
While we were stuck inside potty training, we did some fun things for Easter! We got out all of our plastic Easter eggs and practiced hunting for them. Grady’s going to be great at our family Easter Egg hunt next weekend. He was even finding the ones that Eric hid really well! We dyed Easter eggs with Grady for the first time, too. He seemed to like it, but he kept making me nervous! He would just all of a sudden grab the cup of dye. I’m not sure how many times my heart stopped because I thought it was going to spill all over the place! Luckily, it all stayed in the cups!
