It's been a while...

since I posted last time. I've just been caught up on the everyday stuff and haven't taken much time on the computer lately. It seems by the time I get home from work and we have dinner and clean-up, there's so little time each night for me to connect with Lauren. She's with Joe all day long, so my evenings are spent playing and snuggling with my girl. Not so bad to see this smiling face after a long day at work...


Today I got two calls at work from Joe that Lauren had gone on the potty! We aren't "officially" potty training yet, but she always sits on the potty before taking her morning bath. This morning she actually went and this afternoon after her nap she asked to go on the potty and went again! She has been telling us for a while now when she has a dirty diaper, so we figured she would be ready for training soon. It surprised us today when she actually asked for the potty and then went. Way to go, baby!

This past Saturday we doggie sat at my brother's place, which is a pretty good gig since we get to use the pool. I shot this video of Lauren on the pool slide with Joe. She loved it and wanted to go again and again.



On Sunday we had another swim day at a friend's house. Here's Little Miss digging into her pool snacks...


Just chillin...

Snuggle bug...


Last, but not least, a new layout with a favorite photo of mine from the past week...

Just in case anyone is wondering, the 1st comment was spam so I deleted it. It wasn't a derogatory comment.
