Luke Is Potty Trained!

After much bribery, prayer and anticipation, Luke is finally potty trained!!! He did #2 last Wed (April 22) for the first time at 3 1/2 years old. We are sooo... proud of him. We had 2 babies in diapers for over a year. Now the potty training madness is over! He got to go to Wal-Mart and pick out whatever he wanted. He selected a $4 bat and ball:) Here he is calling everyone with the good news...he even looks older now with his shorts sagging below his Diego under ware line.

A Few Attempts At a "Brothers" Picture

Happy Easter!

Here's a couple of pictures from Easter morning. Where are the sweet pictures of the boys in their Easter outfits? I didn't take any. I was a little distracted when I found Hudson playing in toilet water when we were trying to get out the door. I had to strip him down, bathe him again, and find and iron another outfit. With all that said, they really did look cute and Hudson did not mind having to go to Plan B at all.

Hudson's First Birthday!

These are the only pictures I got of the birthday party before my camera battery ran out...great timing. Any good mother would have had extra batteries, not me! Hudson had a fun, low key, first birthday party at home. He got a Zoo membership from Grandmother and Stride Rite gift cards from Mimi, Pap, Marci and Chad...exactly what Hudson asked for! He also got a Tonka truck from Katie and a bird house with stuffed birds from GrandBob and Frances...Luke loved the truck and bird house!
What is Hudson up to these days? He walking everywhere! He started walking on the day before his birthday, while I was at work:( Climbing on everything. He points to a light and says "ight." Also says "ba" (ball) and "Dadadadada." He has slept through the night every night since the tubes, yea! Although a LARGE handful, he is still the happiest baby ever!
