We had a busy weekend. Yesterday we drove out to Ontario, it was gorgeous. Living in the prairies means that seeing any kind of actual terrain aside from flat grasslands gets me all excited. There are rocks in Ontario, and hills. We visited at our friend's parents place. They live out in the wilderness by Lake of the Woods in a gorgeous home that they built themselves, so we did some exploring and poking around. Took lots of beautiful pictures and came home tired but happy at the end of the night.
This morning we opted to skip church and have a lazy morning. We got up and moving around twn thirty and made a huge Sunday brunch which we ate as a family at our new table. I did all the prep work (including making the pancake batter from scratch) and set the table, while Chuck cooked the bacon, eggs, pancakes, and hashbrowns. Of course we had syrup and fresh strawberries and bananas with our pancakes. And a glass of blueberry juice. I added a tiny amount of it to Skyler's water in his sippy and he went nuts drinking it as though it would disappear if he didn't gulp it down in time.
Skyler's still doing amazing with the potty, he used it after his breakfast this morning. We've been keeping up with it every day, and he has no complaints. He actually claps each time I sit him on it. Oh and he pees in it now too. We're just working on the sign for potty now so he can tell me when he needs to go. Oddly enough I use potty time to work on other things. While he's on the potty we brush his teeth, and learn about the different body parts (singing head, shoulders, knees & toes etc) and we comb his hair. The other day I gave him a faux hawk. Haha. Honestly though he's spoiling me with the lack of dirty diapers lately. I love it. He also sleeps through the night and freely gives hugs and kisses, along with big happy smiles. I couldn't ask for a better toddler.
I hope you all are enjoying the weekend as much as I have been.
(P.S. Doesn't he look like a big boy in the last picture?? Where did my baby go?)
