Long Time, No Post

I finally found a way to use this sling that works for Eli and I both. He loved being carried around this way because he was touching me, which is his favorite place to be, and he could look around at the world. I loved it because he wasn't crying and I could still use both my hands! Woot!

Things have been crazy busy since just before our vacation. We've been home for nearly a week, but I think it is only this afternoon that I can honestly say things are getting back to normal. I still have a disturbing pile of dirty laundry in my bathroom, but at least my to-do list is no longer following me around and throwing tomatoes at my head.

The beach was lovely and we took a LOT of photos. The cousins had a fantastic time playing together and kept each other nicely entertained most of the time. They did start to wear on each other by the end of the week, however. At the airport on Saturday, I was beginning to think that Lila and Olivia were going to end up in a fist-fight.

Oh, and one other great outcome from the girls spending so much time together: After seeing Liv go pee-pee on the big potty, Lila finally found the motivation she needed to potty train! She has been wearing Big Girl Panties most of the time since we got home and is doing a fantastic job! Hooray!

Way to go Lila! I am very proud of you!

Who is that fat baby in that sling? Surely that can't be the little frog-legged Eli I saw a few weeks ago. He's growing like the proverbial weed!

Good for you Lila! I enjoyed both Lila and Liv go potty at the beach!
What a wonderful family vacation we all had...perfect weather, all stayed well, and we even had a dolphin entertain us by jumping high out of the water and dive back down, just like a Flipper show!

love and hugs from Grammie in Houston
