Too Long!

Uh, I know it has been too long since I posted, but things have been busy around here! Everyone had colds early last week, and then this past weekend we finally finished renovating our laundry room and painting the kitchen (well part of it anyway). I finally have my house back!! Yay! And really, other than that not too much exciting stuff has happened. Mackenzie is working on walking, she will take one single step on her own (like move a foot), but she will walk beside you holding your hand, which aside from being tremendously cute, it is a great leap forward for her. So, hopefully it won't be long and she will be running around the house with her brothers. And Mr. Collin is on the potty training train. He is in pull ups now and he will ask all the time to go sit on the potty, but it is always after he has already gone in his pullup, but I remember Alex was the same way, it took him a long time to get the timing thing down, so at least he is on the right track.

And now I am planning for Alex's b-day in March, I can't believe my baby is going to be 4!! Time goes by so fast, I remember like it was yesterday when he was my little 2lb 13oz, 15 inch long preemie in his isolete with tubes everywhere and that darn beeping oxygen monitor above him. Now, my gosh, he is a little kid! Complete with a smart mouth and the wonderful ability to talk back. LOL. I have found myself using phrases like "don't use that tone with me" and "just wait till your daddy gets home!". But, I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, being a mom is the best job ever, I may loose some sanity, but I have gained a lot of love. Ok, before I jump on the sappy wagon, I will depart. Clothes don't put themselves away!

Have you taken a picture of Collin standing next to his first potty poo poo yet? On Jon & Kate Plus Eight, Kate took pictures of each child standing next to their first potty poop. You could put the pic in Colley's scrap book...LOL
PS: Tell Colley GaGa is very proud of him.
