Lainey has taken on a new persona....bag lady. She insists on carrying a shopping bag wherever we go. Usually with 5 rubber ducks in it, two lambies, a baby and Meow Meow. She has a cute backpack and a darling baby bag. Nope. She wants a paper shopping bag. Maybe she's working on her image.
Carter went on an exciting adventure recently at Union Station's Science City. More on that later. This picture makes me nervous enough.
Drumroll, please. Our 3rd kiddo is potty trained! I've been stalling Lainey ever since Jack trained.....wanted him to enjoy some "big kid" time before Lainey stole his thunder. Randomly decided to give it a try on Saturday and we haven't looked back.
Carter was nearly 3 years old before we even tried with him.
Jack was 3.5 years old.
Lainey is just past 2.
Another chapter in the book of "girls are so different than boys."
And, all of this potty training business means we'll need to move her from her crib soon enough.
Which breaks my heart.
She still seems so little to me. And, she's our baby. I don't want to do it.
I told Shannon about the potty training and she asked when the "OMG, I don't have babies anymore" meltdown will begin. I can always count on Shannon for the truth.
So, the little ones have been practicing medicine lately.....
Thank goodness, because Jack has a little cold. First sick doctor visit since March of last year. Ten months, people. Our kids don't get sick often. (Unless, of course, we're in the midst of a relocation and I'm on my own with 3 children for 7 months. Then, and only then, do our kids randomly vomit throughout the house - the very house I'm trying to sell.)
Back to Jack.....
Little punkin pie is so sad when he doesn't feel good. No meds needed.....it's just a little virus.....no temperature read at the office.
Lots of naps.
And, Lainey is not sick, but don't tell her that. She is SURE she is.
Our pediatrician's office finally had the H1N1 vaccine in, so I had the kids shot. Carter gets his second round tomorrow at the nurse's office (love Kansas schools!). Little ones go back in a month for their booster.
Our doctor said that next year's flu vaccine will include the H1N1 strand......so consider that when making your decision this year whether or not to shoot your kids.
No big agenda for the weekend. I've been working on the house a bit and hope to finally tackle the gallery wall I've been planning for above the fireplace mantle.
Hope you have a good one!
