First Day of school

So today was Parker's first day of "school". He was pretty excited, I must admit I was a little sad to see him go. I don't usually drop him off on his first day, I am usually in school too. But for some reason this year he started a day before me so I got to take him! He was sad until he saw some old friends from last year and he kissed me goodbye, waved and grabbed the little girls hand and walked right in. It was nice to see him go on so easily, but a little hard for me hah. As you can see from the pictures he has moved on up in class so he now needs a nap mat. (Which he was VERY excited about!)He also got a new lunch box to take (which he was quite proud of!) We had such a great summer together, we got to spend an entire 2 months together, Which has never happened! We had SOOO much fun and it makes me almost want to cry to think it is all over! Love to all, hope everyone has a great week!

we're there!

Well, I have good news! Parker is officially potty trained! He even sleeps in big boy undies for his nap!! The only time we have a pull up on him is at night. YEAH for us!!! I am so glad that he finally gave in and just started to use the potty. We have moved the changing table out and have placed some table and chairs in his room (cars, who would've guessed). He LOVES it!! He sits in there and colors and plays play doh for hours on end...which is nice for me. He has also dubbed the other chair "his Abbie's" since we just got it they haven't been able to come over for her to sit in her new chair. And, he also got a new bed that's a car, it's way too cool, or at least he thinks so.In other sad news, our first fish....has gone to a better, well different place. I tried to clean the water out for him and he met his demise soon thereafter. It was sad, but I think I was more upset than Parker was. We have a new fishy now that is black and has appropriately been named "Red". Who knows what goes on in a 2 year olds brain? Anyway, love to all we are trying to enjoy the rest of our freedom these next couple of weeks!
