Seriously...

...what is cuter than an almost 3 year old in BIG BOY UNDIES? I'm so proud of Julian! He is an amazing inspiration to me! Now, I'm not talking inspiration like, "YES! Now I know it's ok to pee on the potty." I've been potty learned for quite a few years now, and, aside from a few minor accidents after having babies, have a pretty good track record! Seriously, an inspiration in that, there is no reason to push him to be bigger than he is. I never understood mom's that said, "When he's ready, he will be ready." It never made sense to me. NOW, now it is clear! He hasn't had an accident since last Tuesday, and it was totally my fault! (I'm a believer that most 'accidents' are not the child's fault at all, but the parents! HA) It's amazing. And having only one in diapers is nice too! But what am I going to do with all of these PullUps we have left?!

Here is Julian with the love of his life, Brooklyn. She is also his inspiration for PLing!





As I approach my baby's birthday, I am reflecting. This past year has brought with it SO much change. 2009 has proven to be a better year than 2008 thus far. Nobody that I know and love has died, and it's been almost a full month! I've experienced some weather that I never knew was possible {read: -26 degree weather} and have learned some new skills that will prove helpful later in life {read: driving in snow!} Especially my children have changed SO much. Julian went from a little kid, even on his 2nd birthday he was still so much a baby. Gabriel went from a fetus to a toddler! How does that happen?! I feel so blessed to be the mother of my two boys. They are incredible and oh so funny! Pretty soon, Gabriel is going to be paying back Julian for all the pushes he's endured this past 11 months!








Julian is recently obsessed with a new show. Now I don't know how this obsession came about, or how we ended up watching it that fateful day, but alas, he's obsessed. He adores all that is SpongeBob SquarePants. Now I'll be honest. I like the guy. He's nice, he's funny, and he's such a cheery yellow! BUT it's a really, really weird show! I honestly think Julian prefers Patrick over SpongeBob, but whatever! I bought him some SpongeBob undies, and he thinks he's a pretty big man! HA!

Definitely, most "accidents" are the parents' fault! I'm so proud of Julian!

I think you can save the pullups for Gabriel. At the rate he's going, he'll wear them next year.

Yeah for Julian!!!! Jon and I bought a potty chair for JT just to get him used to it and he has gone a few times, but everytime he sees it he claps. :) I know he probably is not ready, but why not get him used to it. Hope you are enjoying the cold cold weather. Talk to you soon. :)

Cute pictures! I don't know why Brooklyn always makes that face the second a camera comes out. Oh well. I asked her last night who her best friend was (she usually says Aubrey or Jake - her cousin), but she got all excited and said, "Julene." At first I didn't know what she was saying, but she kept saying it until I asked, "Oh, Julian?" And she said, "Yea!! Julene!" Hahah. What little sweet hearts!
