I have to say hands down the best thing about being a Mom is watching that light turn on. That very instant when your sweet one "gets it". I love it, I'd have to say it is the highlight of my world. Knowing that my little ones are growing emotionally, physically and scholastically.

Experiencing their achievement through them is a real win for me! As a Mother you do feel you gotten some things right lol

So the time has finally arrived after a long long period of working at this. I can truly say Johnpaul is POTTY TRAINED!!!!! It's been a long road for this guy. He almost had it when he was turning two but a wrench got thrown into it by his brother's arrival. We learned the very hard way potty training during the time of an expected brother or sister NOT good. It erased everything we did. Today I got total evidence we are all done. That we are allowed to spike the ball and do that long desired Touch Down Dance!!!

While changing the baby Johnpaul came up noticed that Christian had pooped and said "Mommy that baby should put that in the potty, it stinks!"

I laughed so hard then realized what that meant. Not only is he going through the emotions of doing the task of going to the potty but he emotionally has grasped it. This is now what he does. Just as all the other hurtles before Johnpaul is growing up. He's no longer my baby or really little boy he's becoming a big boy! Hurray Johnpaul!!


  1. My daughter was trained when she was 2 while we were in temporary housing, and then when we moved into our home, she regressed and it took me 8 months (!!!!) to retrain her! Ugh! That was over 10 years ago and I still can remember the frustration when she regressed, and the triumph when we finally made it over that milestone! Congratulations!

This little man is my baby in training. He gave me the greatest honor of changing my life and title forever. He made me Mom. He made me important.

It has been a short four years that have blurred past of sword fights, super heroes and laughs.

Johnpaul is a Big Brother ask any one he doesn't take his title lightly.

One of my most favorite of many amazing attributes of Johnpaul is his idea of Honor Love and Family. He is a awesome little boy. I look forward in watching him grow.

This guy was worry from within the whom. At week 15 I started to bleed. We were loosing him. It was that day this sweet one even before breathing air taught me one of my most precious life lessons.. patience.

Before I had little but while pregnant with him I was on strict bed rest for 172 days. I was more than worth it.

My image of him was he was the most Determined person.. boy was I right. He will because of this be anything he wants. Greatness is in his future.

Nathaniel is loving, sweet and considerate. He can melt your worst day with his smile.

My sweet baby Christian Michael

This little love. He's my last but in no where my least. He was not planned but was very welcome. He was an Anniversary Gift the best kind ever. Christian doesn't talk yet or walk but I can already tell he's a big thinker.

He is always watching. I can't wait to see how his personality unfolds... but at the same time hope he takes his sweet time. He is my baby, my last and I'd like to keep him sdmall for a bit ;o)
