Nate and Audrey have been so easy lately! Just easy going and well behaved. Perhaps it's the weather and the fact that they get to run around our backyard! I absolutely love it. The only problem is that Nate knows how to open the gate, which is fine because our front yard is very safe, but yesterday, for example, when we got home, I had dressed them too warm so I let Audrey run around in a diaper and Nate always strips down the second we walk through the door (crazy kid). So when he wanted to go outside we told him he had to have clothes on so he goes to his drawers and puts on a pair of underwear backwards and his shirt backwards. So when they're playing in the backyard and they go to the front and Audreys in a diaper and Nate in a tshirt and underwear both on backwards......you can see why I want them to stay in the back yard haha! But they usually play under the deck anyway.
So, since the beginning of Nate's potty training, if we have been out in like the mountains, or somewhere in nature, we have tried to encourage Nate to pee in the grass if there is no bathroom around. Kind of just a panic "um just hurry and go here so you don't pee your pants" thing. But Nate has carried this to places where he doesn't need to pee in the grass. Namely our front yard. I've told him the front yard is bad, but the backyard is ok. Well yesterday I took him to Phil's work and while we were waiting, Nate got out a minute before I did and was just looking at the bushes. I get out and go to grab him and there he is, pants down, peein' away. Oh my! I tried not to laugh, but he said so proudly, "look mom! I peed in the bush!!" oh Nate!!!!
In other news Audrey now says mama! It's basically THE cutest thing ever. She signs a lot and picks up new signs instantly. She is getting so big. It's wonderful. I love her age! She eats anything. She's kind of like a puppy and Nate feeds her the food he doesn't want hahaha! They crack me up!!! I'm so lucky to be their mom!!!
And now some pictures
Just snuggling. :)
She found this top to a sippy cup and thought it was a binky. She was so excited when she found it, I didn't have the heart to correct her.
