Summer To Do

Here is an official beginning-of-summer post about what we hope to have done/changed by the end of summer:

Get Jack and Molly fully potty trained. (They are both doing really well staying dry during the day with an accident here or there. However, they both still are wet at naptime and nighttime. We also need to work on #2s going in the potty. Having only one kid in diapers will be like getting a raise!)

Get rid of sippy cups. (I packed them all away today and the kids have done okay with drinking from big kid cups in the kitchen. Hopefully, limiting drinks will help with potty training.)

Get the fence up THIS WEEKEND!

Lots and lots of bike riding and playing outside! So far, we do this every day.

Ensure that we only have three children

Attend story time at the library.

Squelch my Type A personality and let the kids get dirty or go to bed late or not nap every now and then as long as it means they are having fun.

Redecorate the front room

Take the kids swimming

Survive the day-to-day craziness with three kids three and under while maintaining my sanity and not screaming at them all the time. While the list isn't elaborate with trips or tons of stuff to do, this will keep us plenty busy, but not too busy to lead to exhausted kiddos.

Natalie's Five Month Stats

Weight: 16 lbs. 10 oz. (90th percentile)

Height: 26 inches (75th percentile)

Head: 25th percentile (but the measuring tape wasn't around the largest part so I don't really think this is accurate)

Healthy and the happiest baby ever!
