:: Potty training continues (we started last month) and all our success can be chalked up to bribery. I am so grateful for Starburst Jellybeans. Robb keeps eating them and when I got after him about it he told me we bought them specifically to reward individuals for using the toilet, which he was already doing. Touché.
:: We got a new camera. I'm in love, but there's definitely a learning curve to using it (as in over half my pictures are either blurred or focused on the wrong thing). I frequently stalk my children now in order to practice. Colby's boardbook, Rockin' Babies, has a page that says, "Rockin' babies are hounded by the paparazzi," and if you ask him who's holding the camera, he'll reply, "Mommy." He can relate.
:: I threw a baby shower for my good friend, Rachel
:: We finally went camping, something I haven't done since joining the ranks of motherhood. It was glorious: there were trees, running water, and we stayed outside the entire time without sweating. Colby helped put up our huge tent. Alice ate all the dirt/rocks within reach. We read stories by flashlight and once the kids were in bed, Robb and I gazed at the stars.
