Hello, Spits!!

Will has a new game...spitting! All the time! In the car, every meal, getting a new diaper, he spits! Super fun! It's like he's blowing raspberries, but with extra drool and saliva. The best is when we arrive at preschool and he's covered in spit, oh and Jack and Molly are too because they think it's super fun to spit right along with him. No, wait, the best is when I'm feeding him oatmeal or squash and he spits it back at me!! Sometimes, when he sees the spoon, he'll just start spitting for the fun of it!! My favorite is when I give him medicine! He sees the medicine dropper and starts spitting and blowing raspberries...he HATES medicine!! First he blows the raspberries, spits, and then gags on the medicine and most of it ends up dripping down his face to the fat creases around his neck. Fun!
Of course, he spits up too! Today, we're leaving church and he spits up oatmeal from breakfast, which he had eaten two hours before. He seems to prefer to spit up when we're leaving, usually on the carpet when I'm picking up my purse, putting on my flip flops, or carrying a million things, plus Will. I've learned not to bend over (bad for my back and doesn't help the baby pouch), so I do lunges to pick up my things while carrying Will and running out the door. But no matter the position I use to pick up things and go, he LOVES to spit up and 9 times out of 10, I have baby spit up all over me dropping Jack off at preschool!! The best is when I don't know there is baby spit up on me and someone tells me about it or I smell it! Yummy!!
So, now when Will spits or spits up, we say, "Hello, Spits!" It suits our little buddy and his lovely spitting habit!!

Potty Time?!

So, this weekend, Molly decided that she didn't like having a wet diaper...at all. Every time she peed a tiny bit, she would tell she was wet and needed a new diaper. At Jack's t-ball game on Saturday, she kept grabbing herself (down there) and I started to worry that she had an infection of some sort. No, she was wet. Hmm...time to potty train? She started going on her Elmo potty last week a few days, but took a few days off too. I decided not to push it because if you push Molly into anything, she'll regress. Molly time is the name of her game and has been her whole life!! On Sunday, she pooped and freaked out!! She kept saying "Molly poop in diaper!!" As I'm going upstairs to get her a new diaper, I see a trail leading from our bedroom into the kitchen. A poop trail. She had taken off her diaper and the poop led from our bedroom floor through the family room to the kitchen trash can. I asked her where her diaper went and she said, "All gone!" I'm thinking it's a sign to start the potty training, I hope we can all do this!! Wish us luck!!

Wait...what?!!

Will is 7 months today, yes, 7 MONTHS!!! In the past few days, he has become nearly an expert in sitting and he is starting to rock back and forth on all fours. Jack and Molly keep showing him how to crawl, "So he can be JUST LIKE US!!!" A direct quote from Jack. I'm not sure if we're all ready for Will to be just like us, mainly because everything, EVERYTHING, goes in his mouth. Toys, newspapers, spoons, bibs, my shirt, my hair, blankets, his feet, you name it!!! We were practically wrestling each other for my keys yesterday at Jack preschool and I felt like the meanest Mommy when I won the match. He started crying and everyone looked at me as if I smacked him in the face. Poor baby!! I didn't, by the way!!

Will and I were at Jack's preschool yesterday for the Mother's Day Tea. Jack's classroom had doughnut holes (yum!), orange juice and sweet tea. His class sang all the mom's some songs, we enjoyed our yummy treats, and we were given our presents! The whole time we were there, Jack kept coming up to me and saying, "Mommy, I love!" "Mommy, I'm so happy you're here!" He's the sweetest little boy, but when did he get so grown up?!! It was a special treat being with my two boys!

Molly went to my friends house while we were at the Tea and while she was there, they played in the water table outside. I picked her up, she was drenched in water!!! It was so cute, she was dripping wet and having a blast!!! Of course, wearing her sunglasses the entire time, always have to look good and prevent wrinkles, no mater your age!!! At Jack's t-ball game last week, she was wearing her glasses and one of the parents went, "She's a little diva, isn't she?!" Not really, but she does enjoy her sunglasses on at all times!! She refused to take them off at Wal-Mart the other day. Where does she get this from?! She also has been going pee in the potty!! Last night, she was sitting on her Elmo potty, wearing only her socks and starts going potty! When she's done, she jumps up and down and claps her hands saying, "Yea Molly!" It was adorable!!

Finally...here are some pictures from the last few months!


Jack's birthday party where Molly took gymnastics!

Just jumped in the foam blocks!
She LOVES the foam blocks and has ZERO fear!
This is the birthday group giving each other hugs!

I know...he's a doll!
The five of us on Easter...this is the best picture we got!
For Christmas, Papa and Grandma got Jack his own digital camera. Here is a shot he took of the 4 of us the other day


The camera also includes special effects to put on your pictures, such a fun feature!! So, Eric took this picture of Jack and Jack went running to the mirror to see his mustache.
