Mondays

Why does it seem like Mondays last forever? Conrad, Cody, Aubrey and I went to the park and the guys played tennis. We had lunch, picked up a movie from Redbox. Played Monopoly, Aubrey took a nap and it's only 6, Conrad is in school right now. Aubrey is in her high chair next to me NOT eating her dinner. Since when does a 2 year not want dinner? "No I don't wanna" she says. So she is picking at her food. Silly girl! Conrad will get home from class around 8, so I should have dinner cleaned up, Aubrey bathed and ready for bed.

Today was a big day for me... back to MJC... kind of. I'm taking some classes online. I'm taking 9 units this semester. I have been thinking lately about what I would want to do. I've never had a clear idea. I have always wanted to be a stay at home mom. I'm loving it too by the way. But what does one do when her kids are in school? I have come to think that I would like to pursue a career in Nursing. So that's where I'm heading right now...

Well Aubrey is letting me feed her, which is weird usually she wants to do it all by herself! This day seems like it has been extra long ... just kind of weird.

End of Summer Fun

Yesterday Aubrey went swimming in her pool. She had lots of fun splashing around and just being goofy.



Helping Mommy fill up the pool with water.


I asked her to smile for Mommy. This is what she gave me, I LOVE IT!!



She spent a lot of time soaking up water with the ball and squeezing it out onto the driveway.

Candice's Baby Shower

We had Candice's baby Shower on Saturday. It was great. There were a lot of people who love and support Candice. All I can say is that it was absolutely perfect!

Park Pictures

I really enjoy going to the park with Aubrey. Today we went with Josh, Mandy and Hailey. It was so HOT out. The girls and Josh played in the water. It was so much fun to watch my daughter and my niece.


Looking good in her shades ♥



Aubrey came home and took a great nap, thankfully.

Conrad is off camping with Cody until Wednesday. The last time it was just Aubrey and I for a few days was when I was working. I'm so thankful that I don't have to find anyone to watch Aubrey, I am able to stay at home with her. So the next few days we are going to be spending some mommy-daughter time. Plan on getting things ready for Candice's shower this weekend. I talked with her today and she said about 3 1/2 more weeks until baby girl is here!!

August

I believe that God really thought a lot before making a two year old, especially my daughter.



We have been trying to potty train her on and off for a few months now, never really buckled down. On Thursday August 6, I got there! The whole weekend we tried and tried and she did okay ... then something happen that Monday she woke up and decided that she was going to be a big girl and go on the big girl potty. But in those 4 days I feel like I used all of patience that I had. Every time that I felt like I was going to give up Aubrey would say some of the funniest things that I have ever heard her say. Of course I can't remember any of it now. God gave her a sense of humor and she knew exactly when to use it. She cracked me up!! I'm proud to say that Aubrey is pretty much potty trained. She stays dry during naps, has only had one accident during the day. It's amazing! My little baby is so BIG now!



I had tried everything with her. I even tried to give her money for going on the potty. She loved putting her money in her piggy



We have been working with Ace on learning how to sit on command ... and I thought potty training was tough ... When I leave the room I can hear Aubrey saying Ace sit! Or one of her favorite things is to help put Ace in the crate, so she can be heard saying Ace Crate and pointing.

Old Photo Friday

I have been slacking on posting the Old Photo. I've been thinking about my baby shower and was looking at pictures and came across this picture of Candice and I after my shower. I can't believe that her baby shower is in a week and she is due next month!

SoulScape

At the beginning of the month I had the chance to go to Sonora for SoulScape, a women's retreat. I went with some of my friends from MOPS. We had a blast!! The picture is from the first day, before all the fun started. =)
