No more headbands

Don't you think Drew looks so cute with her flower headband?
Well. . .Drew seems to think differently now about wearing headbands.

Here is what Drew thinks.

Wait a second...What is this?

I'm taken this thing off

Don't even think about putting that thing back on, cause I'm not wearing it.

I know it isn't the end of the world, but where my girls don't have any hair until after they at least a year in a half, I feel like they need to have a bow or a flower on to help them look a little more girlie. Oh well what do ya do?

Bear Lake

We always love going to Bear Lake with Tim's family, but we also love it when our friends, Scotty and Jenn, invite us to go up to Bear Lake with them. We always have such a good time and our kids have a blast playing together. Addison loved the Lake, and couldn't get enough of the water. Here are some pictures.

Bad blogger

Just like the title states, I have been a bad blogger. Not that I think anyone really cares what we have been up to but since I use this as my family journal I think I better try and give a quick update. We have been having a great summer and have been taking a lot of pictures which has kept us pretty busy. We celebrated Father's Day up at Bear Lake with Tim's family. Unfortunately we didn't take any pictures. We did however have a great time and a memorable night playing poker. We also went to our first Real game at the new stadium. Tim also had his 30th Birthday, which was a bust because the weekend before Tim's birthday we found out that Drew had an ear infection. Four days later, on Tim's birthday we were back to the doctor's office to find out the antibiotic wasn't working and that she had double ear infections. Friday Drew broke out in a rash, and then on the 4th of July we were back to the doctor's office to find out what the doctor thought she might have Roseola. So our 4th was pretty uneventful. We did enjoy the night having dinner with my parents. My dad had bought some fireworks but since Drew wasn't feeling to great we weren't able to stay for them. Then on the following Monday we were back to the doctor's to find out it was actually a allergic reaction. I am now happy to say that after four doctor visits, four antibiotics, and some sleepless nights Drew is finally feeling better. Well since we didn't take any pictures on Father's day, Tim's birthday, the fourth of July, the Real game will have to do. Because who wants to look at a post without pictures?!

I did it!! Those are the words that Addison says after she goes potty. A lot of you know that we attempted to try and potty train Addison right before Drew was born. By the end of that week she surprisingly did really well, until the UTI came. After a month of antibiotics and having to stop the potty training we were back in diapers. Then in December we had a few test done to make sure she didn't have reflux since it runs in Tim's family. So my original plan was to start the potty training the first of this year. Well...the first of the year came and went and the thought of going through the process again provided little motivation. Well months went by and it was now Memorial Day and we needed to head to the store for diapers. While we were there we decided to take Addison to the isle where they sell big girl undies. We told her she could pick three kinds of big girl underwear. She picked Princesses, Tinkerbell, and Minnie Mouse. She was so excited for her big girl underwear. Then came in the reverse psychology. We told her, "Oh wait, we can't get those. You don't go on the big girl potty." She really wanted them and so we asked her, "Are you going to start going potty on the big girl potty?" She told us yes. So when we got home she put on her big girl undies and we haven't looked back since. She has done a wonderful job. I think it had to do with the fact she was finally ready and she loved the potty chart, treats (Swedish fish), and all the excitement and encouragement we gave her. After a week of being potty trained she was waking up dry from her naps and in the mornings. Good job Addie, we are so proud of you!
