We frequent the local library.  We are there every week..definitely once and on occasion twice.  Prior to the past couple of weeks, Rian would go inside in the umbrella stroller--recently however, I've allowed her to walk.  Since Carina has been potty-trained, we usually will drop off whatever we have to drop off and hit the bathroom first.  After that we'll browse in the adult section and/or audio books ending up in the children's section.  Well, I'm telling you Miss Rian really thinks she is 5..not 17 months.  She makes a beeline for the computer.  She knows just how everything goes.  Its pretty amusing.  If there are no other kids there or no one in line to use a computer (there are 2 of them) I'll let her sit with the headphones on..too funny--it looks like she knows what she is doing!!

My lil peanut @ 17 months old.


Heidi is definitely growing.
She will be 14 weeks old this week.

 A boy and his dog...

 Carina has gotten better with Heidi.
Heidi is still a puppy and will do "puppy things"
that sometimes get to be a bit much for Carina..but overall she is doing well.
Rian is still pretty scared of can't blame her really, Heidi is bigger than she is! 


..deserve a warm treat!

We had back-to-school night last week.  He is doing well and
enjoying school once again.

Could it possibly be?  I'm afraid to actually voice I'm going to whisper.. 


We are on day #3 of wearing underpants..still pull-ups to bed..but she is doing a great job.  Day #2 was yesterday..which entailed an hour ride to church and then an hour and a half service and then an hour ride small feat when potty training.  

Keep up the good work, Bean!!

This is Rian and her hiney.  She wants so badly to be a "big" girl.
So, today I let her wear "big girl underpants"--over her other pants.  She still has them on as I type.  We have high hopes for her..she will "tell" us when she either has to go or right after she has gone.  As soon as Carina is squared away (and she has made tremendous progress of late) hopefully it won't take so long for Little Miss.  

The camera on my phone has a delay, so the picture turned out a bit it a "hiney in motion"..but had to share anyway.

          Michael after coming home from his first day of school 2010  

Back to school!  Hard to believe summer is done.  Michael started school today.  After asking when school was starting for about a month--2 days ago he decided that he didn't want to go anymore.  It turned out fine, we had no issues this morning and he got on the bus quite willingly, hardly remembering to say goodbye.  He has the same bus driver as last year and was excited to see her. :)  He seemed to have a good day..unfortunately, the kids he befriended last year have moved on to kindergarten..but being a pretty friendly kid, I'm sure he'll make new ones.  

I do have other pictures, however, no way of getting them on here yet.  Really, none of you people know the workings of a mac?  I find that hard to believe...a lil help would be great.  :p  It gets frustrating that I can only get pics up here from my cell.   I really want this squared away before the baby comes..

Well, happy back to school!

p.s. sorry about the alignment..
