Busy Bees

Things continue on.

We won't talk about AK's nose or LP's foot.

We can talk about LP's swimming lessons. She isn't learning to swim per say, but she is learning about water safety and being comfortable in the water. The other day she told me "Three whistles mean an em-ur-gency."

AK's toilet training is also not perfect - she will use the toilet at school like a champ, but home, not so much. This morning she did look at me and say, clear as day, "Mommy, I want to wear undies too." Looking forward to not needing to buy diapers in the long-run; in the short-run, not looking forward to carrying around extra changes of clothes.

Last month I discovered a community farm on my way to work and we have been making a weekly sojourn. The girls love Ambler Farm. There isn't much there but a few animals and open fields (and a farm stand) but they just enjoy the open space. I love that my babies don't need THINGS to be entertained. They only request a pint of tomatoes from the farm stand to munch on and the freedom to run around. It is great.

We also got a weekend visit from some cousins - both real and pretend.

My actual cousin was passing through CT and stopped by with his wife and two daughters. The girls had a great time dressing up, playing games and being generally silly. My girls liked hugging the baby; the baby probably like it less.

The mail delivered "Flat Julie," the paper iteration of one of my nieces from California. LP and AK loved the idea and couldn't wait to take Flat Julie to Stew's to show her the highlights. A good times was had by all.
I know, not my best ever blog post, but at least you got some pictures!

We are working on potty training Lily as well and it is a SLOW process. So far she has gone on the potty for my hubby and babysitter but not for me. I don't get it. Yesterday I got her dressed and we sat on the potty and then two minutes later she peed on the couch! Ugh!
