The Birthday Party

On Saturday, we had Connor's birthday party.  He enjoyed and we also enjoyed it. I was very excited, because he received  enough clothes to last until he is three. Although, we will need some denim pants but it can wait until we hit the colder months.  I will post pictures of the party when I have more time. 

One person that came to the party was Mason, which is my cousin's son.  He has been struggling to learn to walk for a while now but he is finally walking.  It is so exciting, but she really has no idea how mobile he will be within the next few months. She will definitely be running after him and they will now enjoy being outdoors more since he can walk. Maybe we can have playdates together. Fingers are crossed.

Yesterday, my car was acting very weird. I was scared to drive it. We came to the decision that it is time to save up for a new car.   It will be hard to save some money, since I start school in a week and hours at work have slowed.  I have been working on making a budget, but Branden loves to eat out. Speaking of school, I am excited to see my block girls and guy! Aaron would be so mad if I put him in with the girls, but we sit at the same table and my semester would be horrible!    I am so excited that we will be able to work hands on with the students. I am nervous though! I only have one more  weekend to myself before I become the crazed work driven student. 

I will go enjoy my me time.  Bye bye!

We've made it through another year.

   Today is my little boy's second birthday.  We are entered the world of "No's" and "Mine", even if it is not his'. For example, my make-up. While digging in my purse the other day he found some lip gloss. While B tried to take it away, he yelled "MINE." It was funny, but B didn't think it was funny.  When we asked little bit if he wanted to go to bed, he said "No."

     We have started potty training, but it isn't going as well as I thought it would.  He potties on the side of the toilet but not in the toilet. It is frustrating, but I tell myself he is scared of the toilet. Hopefully, it will get better.

    We have a big day ahead of us. Birthday shopping, haircuts, and a trip to the zoo.
