What we've been up to lately!

Soooo sorry it's been a while since the last post! I guess that is all good news! We are good...full swing into summer, the pool, watering flowers, potty training, watching Wyatt sit up...and spit up! HE HE!
One of the fun quotes of Caroline during the last 10 days since we began potty trainging:
Me: Caroline are you going to go pee pee on the potty.
CDH: Yeah. Someday.

I laughed out loud! She really is doing well with it. No accidents yesterday except in the pull up at church and during her nap...but that is to be expected I think. She loves a bit of chocolate w/ her successes! Don't we all!
Wyatt is just getting so big. The last few days have been weird w/ some projectile vomiting - yuck - but...he is happy as a clam after...maybe the slightest of a temp like 99.2 or something...but nothing crazy weird. So I am watching him today. He has kept down breakfast so far...and sleeping like a champ right now.

I love going to the pool with them. I was worried about how I would do it with two...but they are awesome. I hold WCH in the left arm and the right arm is available for the jumping craziness of Caroline! She said to me the other day. Summertime is fun mom! I love it!

Here are some pics for what our days have looked like recently.

Oh yeah...I went blond for about 6 weeks as a surprise to Jason! I am back brunette now! What we do for our men! :)

My dear sweet Son: Tonight I looked at you laying in your crib, comfortable, arms out, breathing easy, and I am thankful. You are 6 months old today. They have flown, the days, they are just gone before I feel like I can truly capture them in my heart. Your smile does something to me...those dimples...the way your eyes light up...your slathering of kisses on my are my son and I Love being your mom!
You conquered so much in your first few weeks here on earth that amazingly I have almost forgotten about that time of the NICU and Scottish Rite. Honestly, there were moments when you were so sick before we knew why, when I looked at Jason and said that I was scared that the Lord was only going to have you here for a short while...but got better after 9 long days at the hospital...we came home finally celebrated Christmas, Grammy went back to Kansas, and you-me-Caroline and Daddy figured it to be a family of 4.
Did I mention that I love being your mom?

You babble and squeal and I love it.
You still cry during feeding times, I don't know why...but we've got our way.
You are a snuggler.
You delight in people.
You love your neck to be kissed.
You think your sister is pretty darn fun to watch.
You think Caroline is funny.
You love bath time.
You calm to the song "Jesus Loves Me"
You delight in most things....

I delight in you!

I know you will never be this small again. I can't dwell on sadness of today gone, b/c I know that tomorrow will be so much fun!

Wyatt Christopher...I love you! I am proud of you! I have learned much from you already!
