1) Will has discovered the original Star Wars movies. He is in LOVE.

2) Catie's 2nd birthday is coming up, so I decided to buy her a know, to get things going. She went on it twice yesterday! Nothing today, which is to be expected. I'm totally not pushing it, as I actually believe that kids will potty train when they're ready. I can train her at two, but unless she's ready I'll have to ask/tell her to go potty, and that just means that I'm the one trained!

3) We're having a little(ish) family birthday party (like we always have- I love it!) for the C-Cat on February 14. We were deciding between a ladybug cake and a butterfly cake- the butterfly won. It'll look something like this

but with pink and purple and yellow. Catie got some adorable butterfly wings for Christmas that she'll don for the party.

Inauguration Day- Part 2

Excuse the mess, but you all know what it's like having kids. I just love that they're watching as though they're interested. Maybe they're wiser than I give them credit for. Maybe they realize the significance of today. Cool.

Inauguration Day

Will's playing with a black Matchbox Camaro. Inside the Camaro is President Barack Obama. :)

Making up for lost time. In no particular order...

And what you've really been waiting for...

Things to know:

1) Will has ALL of Dave's old Legos.

2) The Legos include about a jillion little Lego people with a jillion little Lego people heads. They're pretty much everywhere.

3) Lego heads almost all look the same.

4) Will never looks for anything. IF there happens to be something he really loves that he can't find, he whines and tells me he can't possibly find it himself. Those items he loves include his blanket, and, uh, his blanket.

So Catie asked me to put her slippers on her. Shortly after putting them on, she came back to me asking me to take one off. I did, and I put my hand in it to see if there was something in there. I found one little Lego head.

Will came over and said, "I've been looking everywhere for that!"

I Like to Party

Catie's walking around shaking two Lego trees, one in each hand, singing:

"Party! Party! I like to party! Party!"
