Well, I currently have a little naked boy racing happily around the house. Today he has decided that he doesn’t like even a slightly wet diaper, and is ready to take it off all by himself. I’m thinking that boy, do I ever want to get this child potty-trained. I’m not sure if he is quite ready yet, though, because he is still kind of resistant to sitting on command. I need to read my Potty Training In A Day book.

Otherwise, life goes on as usual. The other week, Sweetheart Child opened the lid of a 20 oz. bottle of baby shampoo, and joyfully dumped 19 oz. onto his floor. And that was how I discovered him. Oh. My. Goodness. He is totally into taking lids off of any sort of item and promptly dumping any liquid he discovers. He loves to pour liquids from container to container, during which approximately 10-20% of the liquid remains contained and the rest finds freedom on the floor.

He is a happy little boy. He is currently into talking about “kie-kie’s” (kitty-kitties). There have been friendly neighbor cats prowling around recently, that let him pet them, to his utter joy and delight.

He doesn’t get so lucky with Chloe-dog. :) She’s had one too many episodes of the “scrunch-doggy’s-fur” game.

He is also saying “milk” in an absolutely hilariously adorable way: “gahhkkkkk”. The “kkkk” involves lots of back in the throat saliva. Shoes and juice are still “boose”. Diaper is “boppy”. Apple is "ahbeee"

Pregnancy is going well. I had another doctor’s visit today. I am 17 weeks now, I believe. We have an ultrasound next time we go to find out what we are having.

Tim has one more week of school left for this semester. He is done on May 18. So he is working diligently on guitar. Ahem. Exactly what is wrong with that picture? :) In other music news, however, I have started playing drums again at church, which I thoroughly enjoy.

Gabe has this fascination with socks...

This is the bush in the back of our house. It gets so pretty in spring.

Till later…
