In two months John and Megan will be 3 and I am wondering where the time went.
About a month ago John started showing some excitement about using the big boy potty. For the past two weeks I have worked with him daily to get him to use the potty. We are now on day two of big boy underpants (after about 2 weeks of pull-ups) and we have had only one accident per day. I am so proud of him! Megan isn't really interested in potty training. She knows how to use the potty, will use it if I make her, but doesn't really want anything to do with it. I am hoping that with John in underwear she will want to try harder.

Both kids went to the allergy and immunology doc today for their yearly check-up. Megan continues to be my little peanut. She weighed in at 23 lbs even. Wearing clothing! John is up to 27 pounds. He is also 2 1/2 inches taller than his sister. Both kids take singulair and zyrtec daily to help with their allergies and asthma. We are going to try to take them off their singulair in two months and see how they do. Because of Megan's shoulder (hysteocytoma...sp) she will need to continue to take the zyrtec and might have to take an antihistamine for the rest of her life. Boo to that, but it is better than lesions all over her body.

The kids are thriving at daycare. It amazes me how much they do each day. I am so happy that we made the decision to put the kids at Real Life Nursery and Farm. They have adorable friends, amazing teachers, and a great learning opportunity!

Many of you know this, but on February 14th my mother passed peacefully in her sleep.
It was definitely a shock and I am still not fully processing what happened. I am still expecting her to call me to talk. I will post more about this later, but I am just not ready now.
