Here is the clan! Averie, Carmine, Baylor and Rece. We were at the boys Birthday Party and decided to get brave and interrupt the dancing to snap a quick pic! They did great! I am sure that Carmine and Rece are looking at their Mama's camera while Averie and Baylor are looking at mine.

They are all so big!

Averie at Grandma Judy and Grandpa Bill's for Christmas (last weekend)!

We had a great time visiting! We love visiting Grandma Judy and Grandpa Bill. We have fun looking out at their lake, watching for the geese. And reading books and sleeping in their big king size bed (with Mama and Daddy...). we can't wait to get back when the weather is nice and we can go for a boat ride!

I will be updating more soon, we have some videos to upload!

Max, Maddie, Baylor and Averie having Christmas!

The Marble Run Averie and Baylor got from Max and Maddie.
It has produced HOURS of fun so far! For me too!

Well, we have been "snowed in" for the day today and just playing and playing and getting all of the toys out and having a fun time! I think we'll get out tomorrow, even if it is only to Kroger down the road. Baylor, evidently, was very ready to potty train...he has been telling us since yesterday that "pee [is] coming," and he'll find his potty and with a little help pull down his cars (cars aka pull-ups) and pee! It is great to have him going on the potty and the hard part was literally only Saturday and Sunday, getting him on the potty before he peed, many many times. Now he can feel it coming! YAY! And the bm's are coming along as well. He has had a couple little bm's, Sunday and Monday and then today he let it all out, on the potty without being upset! He said "poop coming" and sat down! So great! SO BIG! I am so proud of you B!

Boxers or briefs? Boxer-briefs!

Modeling them!

He wasn't so sure about wearing them...but he did! His front tooth is brown because he just had an M&M for peeing on the potty.

So, potty training has begun! YAY! And Baylor is doing so great. We decided to start because he peed on the potty on his own Friday before his bath. He has been acting like he could do the potty thing...but I have honestly been so distracted and just knew it would need to be all or nothing to get it going...but Saturday we started it. He started out on Saturday with 2 accidents and about 10x peeing on the potty. He was even dry for his nap. Today, he had 1 accident and went on the potty 10x or so. He had an accident at dinner today, but went pee on the potty while we were out and stayed dry while we were there and until we got home. We picked him up some pull-ups for when we are out and about...but it is undies at home! We are only going through 1 diaper a day now. He was dry for nap today as well (I swear it is a fluke, but we'll see!). Today he could pee when I asked him. Only once has he peed without me asking him to, so I am waiting for him to start "feeling" the urge. Soon I hope! We will be staying home tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday and most of we will see soon if it is really time! Okay...more potty updates soon!!
