I was gung-ho about potty training about a month ago...bought little potties, potty seats, big girl panties, treats, etc. Then I decided to wait because I couldn't quite figure out how things were going to go with one being more ready than the other. Sutton tells me when she has a tee tee diaper "tee tee diaper mommy, change!". But Taylor hasn't shown much interest yet other than to play with the cute little potty every now and then. Tonight I put the girls in the tub and about 5 minutes into their bath Taylor said "poo poo mommy" and I thought the worst...Poop in the tub! Not again! (only happened once but that is one too many.) Luckily there was no poop in the tub. Then she told me again so I got her out and sat her on the potty and about a minute later she tee teed in the potty!!!! I was thrilled...danced, jumped, kissed her, hugged her, praise out the wazoo. So, we will see. I definitely don't think this means a light went off and we are there yet, but at least she's getting ready. :o) Yea Taylor!!!!

I have been trying very hard to be more "crafty" lately. Above are a couple of the shirts I have made for the girls and then a memo board I made for their room. I have other shirts that I have made but they are b'day gifts for a party tomorrow and I don't want to give away the gift before I give it!

We had a fun afternoon today. We blew up the bouncy in the basement and rode bikes in the driveway. The girls are WAY too daring right now. Our driveway is very steep and they like to go up, not all the way, but farther than I am comfortable with and zoom down the drive on their little bikes. Daddy better be getting that fence put up soon or else we're gonna loose two little ones over our 20 foot wall!

I took the girls to feed the ducks a couple of days ago and they had a great time...until a swan bit both of them! I didn't know that swans were mean but they are. In the video Sutton is the one that gets bitten. But once I turned the camera off Taylor got bitten by the same one. Stupid birds! Honestly what are birds good for? All they do is make noise and poop everywhere. I had a mishap at about 5 years old with two parrots that I was having my picture taken with (one on each shoulder). My hair was very long and for some reason they decided to start trying to tear my hair out and pecked me in the head over and over until someone finally got them both off of me. They were all tangled up in my hair and I was terrified. I swear I have hated birds since then.

Clint and I took the girls swimming on Friday to start off the holiday weekend. We swam at Brandi and Craig's house and they were out of town but told us to use their pool while they were gone and we totally took advantage! The weather was beautiful and we had a great time. Both of the girls are now comfortable with just "swimming" around with just their floaties on their arms and prefer not to be in any other float now. We had cute little crab floats that they sit in but they think they're too big for those now I guess. They are both jumping off the side of the pool and Sutton started saying "I do it self" because she didn't want me to hold her hands while she was jumping anymore. Of course Taylor followed suit immediately afterward and they both had a ball. I am so glad that we have close friends w/ a pool we can use rather than having to go to a crowded public pool...I think it's easier for kids to learn this way without a lot of distractions. I will take some pictures the next time we swim but forgot the camera this past time.

We went for Taylor & Sutton's two year check up this week and all is well. They are developing exactly as they should be and are not delayed in any aspect so I am very, very happy about that. Now, if you've seen my girls in person you know that they are pretty tiny...but how tiny? They are in the 75th percentile for height and the 3rd (yes, that's a three) for weight!!! Dr. Darby says they are fine and will just be small, which I am fine with as long as we are not talking about itty bitty kind of small. Paris and Milan here they come!

Our deck is our haven this summer. We have a pool, slide, playhouse, and a sand & water table on it. We recently bought a new table and chairs and a canopy tent to go over it so it's pretty enjoyable out there most of the time, especially in late afternoon. However, I am definitely ready for some cooler weather. I just can't stay out there long with this 100 degree heat indexes!

We had Sutton & Taylor's 2nd birthday party at the park in Mt. Laurel and it was a lot of fun! That is a wonderful place to have a party but boy was it hot that day! I think all of the kids had a good time and the parents got a chance to sit and talk as well.
