Decorating for Fall

Tristan and I pulled out our "Fall Decorations" box a couple of days ago. He was so excited to put out the pumpkins and leaves, etc... It was so precious, when I pulled out our wood plaques that Grandma Meef had made for us, Tristan immediately recognized them and said, "These too at Grandma's House!" and I said, "Yes, Tristan, Grandma made these for us" and so now whenever he walks by them, he says, "Grandma made these". Soooo cute! It's amazing what these little ones remember!

Happy Days

We are just cruising along, playing all day, going to parks, continuing potty training, and getting Kira motivated to walk. It is such a blessing to be a mommy and I fall more in love with my kids every day.

We spend our week learning our ABC's and our Numbers, and Tristan talks my head off all day long ... Tristan gets time with his Yia Yia in Encinitas once a week, and occasionally we have family dinners at Boppa and Grandma's House.

Last weekend, we went and visited some good friends who moved to Ramona a few months back. It was nice to see their new home and have Tristan reunite with his little girlfriend "Maile".

Kira is teething again, so we've had some rough nights, but overall, God is good, and we're happy to be healthy and well cared for, as Drew works really hard for us. It is such a blessing, because I have the privilege of staying home with my beautiful children!

We had an ant infestation in our pantry last night ---- ahhhhhhhh! Had to throw away a lot of food. Luckily Drew is amazing and he sealed the hole in the pantry that the ants were coming in through.

Potty Training

A few weeks back, Tristan decided to start potty training himself. One day he said to me, "Mommy, go pee pee in potty" and that was it. He picked out his own potty from the store and as soon as we brought it home he went to the bathroom in it! Woohoo!

We watch videos about toilets and potty training all day long and he now reads books when he sits on the potty - so cute! He is so proud of himself when he goes and it's so fun to be apart of this stage in his development!

August was a crazy month ...

* We had Kira's birthday
* Busy house hunting all during the week and weekends ...
* Community Garage Sale/Tristan's best friend Maile and her family moved to Ramona
* My family flew in from Spain
* I was husband-less for 2 weeks while Drew participated in pre-wedding fun with Scott
* Scott and MA's Wedding
* Kira started crawling/Tristan started talking (not stop!)
* We put an offer down on a house in San Marcos and it was submitted to the bank for approval!

And now, we are in September, and the kids have just gotten over the flu and things seem to be settling a bit. We had a nice relaxing Labor Day Weekend, spent it with dear friends in North Park. Drew is starting worship again at The Movement (our church) this weekend after a year long break (because Kira was born).

I hear a little voice from the other room saying, "Mommy play with me" ... looks like I am being summoned.
