My blog titles are so creative, aren't they?  It seems like lately I just haven't had the urge to sit down and write.  I probably blame it on not having time, but if I really wanted to write, I would make time.  But last night I just feel like writing.  So here is a random list of things that have been going on with us.

Kase has an appointment Thursday at a feeding clinic.  He still is not eating ANYTHING other than his formula and refusing to open his mouth for the spoon.  Anything he does get in his mouth, he gags on.  He will see a speech therapist, occupational therapist and dietitian.  I am very anxious, but he clearly needs it.  I will post after his appointment with an update.

My cousin who lives in Minnesota is planning her son's 2nd birthday party in the Dells the last weekend in May/first weekend in June.  I cannot wait!  Kyla's never been to anything close to a water park and I know she'll love it!  Hopefully Kase will like splashing around too :)

I thought about trying to potty train Kyla this weekend.  She's starting to seem really annoyed with her diapers and is reaching down in them.  I'll save you any details on that, but just know that I was taking it as a sign.  But as I thought about it more and tried to get her to sit on the potty for a bit, she's not ready.  But I think we're getting much closer!

Tyler and I sat down and looked at our calendar for this summer.  We have some fun things planned that I am SOOOO excited for.  I also started a summer bucket list for the kids and I.  Now if it would just warm up so we can get outside and start crossing things off!  This is our 7 day forecast...

Now that is depressing.  No sun for a week?  At least there are a couple 50's in there.

I have been really bad about taking pictures this week.  The kids have a closet full of spring and summer clothes they need to be able to wear so I can get some cute pictures.  I'm ready for my little man to show off those cute arms and legs!

You know what else I've been bad at?  Tot School!  Yes, we are STILL working on the letter D.  She loves to walk around the house and point to letters she knows.  She got all of Tyler's hats out of his drawer and told us what letters were on them.  Proud Mama right here!

We took the kids back to PlayN Wisconsin, the place that sells play equipment and you can pay to play on it all inside.  Well, we paid $9 to have Kyla throw some horrible tantrums.  At least Kase had fun and was a good boy!  He got to swing for the first time and loved it.

I just had my phone and every picture of him laughing is blurry :(
He is ready to move to a bigger car seat (actually I probably should have already done this) and it's making me realize how fast he is growing up.  This past week I packed away the bumbo, the boppy pillow and his little play mat because he just doesn't need them anymore.  How is this happening already?

Kyla started swim lessons again yesterday.  Before she was in the 6 month to 2 year group.  Now she is in the 2-3 year old group and Tyler said she is definitely behind most of the other kids.  Kase and I stayed home because I had a migraine.  But regardless of what the other kids are doing, I am happy with her getting in the water and being involved.  I think it is great for her!  And...Tyler said when they got in the locker room and started getting dressed (after lessons), she was acting very anxious and weird and then she peed down her leg (she had the swim diaper on, but it was obviously all wet).  She did not like that feeling at all so another good sign I think.  He said he could tell that she knew she had to go potty and didn't want to her in her wet diaper.  We have a birthday party two hours away on Saturday, otherwise we would be giving it a try then.  I can actually see a future with only having to buy diapers for one kid and it looks VERY nice!

I think that's all for now.  I'm hoping the weather man is wrong and we will get some sunshine this week.  We seriously need to get out of this house or Mama might lose her marbles.

Oh, come back tomorrow because Tyler will be blogging!  Becky over at From Mrs. to Mama is having a fun link-up and Tyler graciously agreed to participate!


  1. Our weather forecast looks equally depressing! :-(

    I had to laugh at paying $9 for her to throw tantrums haha...isn't that the way it goes sometimes?!

    You'll have to post your bucket list...I'm looking for ideas :-)

  2. I'm with you on the weather...why can't it be warm?!?!

  3. I'm really excited to get started on our bucket summer list this year..so fun! The weather has FINALLY started to break here in MD. Thank goodness because it was getting depressing:( Upper 60's and lower 70's all week. Share some of your bucket list ideas! :)

  4. I hear ya on it warming up, getting out, and losing your marbles. Oy. Can you even imagine what it will be like only buying & changing diapers for 1 babe? It seems so far away some days, lol. Hope they figure out why Kase isn't wanting to eat...maybe it's a texture issue? Good luck...I'm sure he'll be eating you & your hubs out of house & home within a few years!

  5. Crazy how big they get so fast, huh?! Hope the potty training comes along soon and I hope you get some answers Thursday w/ Kase!!

    You made ME excited by being excited about summer :) I need to make and Erin/Jared summer bucket list ;)
