Happy Birthday Mom!!!

Tomorrow is my mom's 56th b-day! Yes thats right I said 56! She doesn't look a day over 40 does she?? I just wanted to take a minute to say what a wonderful mother I have. She is my best friend and I would just be lost without her! I have always, always, always been a mama's girl and that will never change. Avery just loves his grandma too and I don't know what he would do without her either. I hope and pray that Avery and I will have the kind of relationship that my mom and I have. And if thats too much to ask because he is a boy then I hope to have it with my daughter some day. She is such a strong woman and I look up to her and respect her for all she has done in her life. She has strengthened my testimony more then she will ever know and I love her even more for that. I am so lucky to have such an amazing woman in my life, and best of all I get to call her my mother. I love you so much mom!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!

Averys litte love...

I just wanted to add a quick little post about Avery's little love :) This is Paige. Oh how much Avery loves Paige!! Bridget and I and Kendal and Justin are together all the time so its just natural that these two are as close as they are. Avery loves to give Paigey little loves and you should see her face every time she walks in the door and sees Avery. Its the cutest thing ever, we love it! We always joke that they will be each others first date, kiss, etc. You never know what will happen but they sure do love each other now! These are just a couple quick pics of them watching their favorite show together, BACKYARDIGANS!! Look at their cute little faces, they love their shows :)

Big Boy potty!!!

Well its official!! Avery has started his potty training! He loves his potty.. Not to pee in it though. He just just loves to push it around like a car. We are helping him understand that its not a toy. He helped daddy put it together and he thought that was pretty fun! But now its time to potty in it...

As you can see the look on his face, he has NO idea whats going on! I kept telling him if he went potty I would give him a treat or buy him a little car. You know, a little reward? He wanted to hear nothing about a treat or a toy! He loves sitting on it with his diaper ON but OFF is a no no for Avery :) He has pull ups and we will keep trying everyday until he loves his potty! I love that he is getting so big but it breaks my heart too. I just want him to stay my little baby forever. He's getting a big boy bed for his B-day too, so we'll see how that goes! If anybody has potty training tips please let me know! I'm all ears..
