I love my babies. Can I just say this. I have been so unbelievably overwhelmed these last four months since Ethan was born, and I must be honest, I haven't been the world's greatest mother. But, my sweet, rambunctious, hilarious, wonderful children have been so patient with me. No matter how grumpy I am, they just keep being sweet, keep loving me. I definitely don't deserve them, but I love them. So, I have to share what my little cowboy Carter did this morning. Craig and I were asleep in bed (it was about 5am, Carter's an extremely early riser, unfortunately for me) and Carter comes in, Craig told him it was still night time and to go back to bed, so he leaves for, oh, 5 minutes. When he comes back in he's buck naked, yep that's right, no diaper even, and he's holding a new diaper saying, "I poopy, new diaper, mommy!" The smell radiating from his bum, confirmed what he had so eloquently told me, uh oh, what's he gotten it on. But here's the clincher, it got on nothing! Another miraculous escape from Carter's wild poop antics! I love this kid! P.S. Does anyone have any good tips on how to potty train a little boy...I'm at a loss.

I can just tell what an awesome mommy you are! And I've never even been around you since you've been a mommy!!! :)
Potty training tips? I mean I've never potty trained anyone, but Marlo is potty training her two youngest at the same time, and she was saying, you just set yourself on a timer and make sure and have them go sit on the toilet every two hours or so, so they get in that habit of "going" to the bathroom. I don't know, I'm sure its much harder than that, but thats the suggestion I had. Good luck!

Nice Story! Looks like I have a lot of "poopy" moments to look forward to with Cali. Can't wait! :) Adorable pictures. Your kids are so fact Skyler and I picked out an Ethan look-a-like in our ward last week. His cheeks crack us up. too cute!
