Cruz is Potty Training!

It's official. My baby is not a baby anymore. Today, we are embarking on the potty training adventure! Cruz has been ready for a while. He loves sitting on the toilet. He even grabs his diaper and takes me to the bathroom when he needs to go. 

If this is any indication of how the rest of our journey will go, he may very well be my easiest potty trainer yet!

Valentine's Day 2013

Valentine's Day started off great with a little advanced preparation.  I woke up early to make the boys a special Valentine's themed breakfast. I made heart-shaped bacon, cooked in the oven and heart-shaped caramel cinnamon rolls. 

On the table were big, red heart doilies with my favorite qualities about each boy written on them. Luke is strong, bold and courageous; he's a good big brother and peacemaker; he's helpful to mommy; a great baseball and basketball player. Noah is kind, loving & sweet; he's a thoughtful & generous friend; a master logo builder; and is a good big & little brother.  Cruzie is my sweet chunky pumpkin and the best bonus baby a momma could ever ask for! 

Each boy received a new package of markers with a picture that said, "You 'color' my world Valentine."  They even were allowed to eat a few conversation hearts from the centerpiece of the table - a cup filled with candy & 3 glitter hearts. 

The fun  has only started. I am baking sugar cookies with Dove heart-shaped milk chocolates in the center. For dinner we are eating heart shaped pizza & s'mores dessert pizza. 

Celebrating holidays with the boys is so fun. Seeing their little faces when they walk out sleepy-eyed in the morning to a festive decorated kitchen is priceless! 

My loves - Luke, Noah, Cruz
