johnny and i let the girls color for the first time today. i have to say, it put a huge smile on my face. alyssa did great and knew how to somewhat hold the crayon and what she was supposed to do with it. allison had a little fun, but she mainly just wanted to eat her crayon. :) i am sure they will get the hang of it in no time...they are only 15 months.
alyssa kay -my life-
i have been getting so frustrated lately with the girls taking off their diapers. i understand that they are so young and i am aware that they can't walk well or talk...but i just KNOW they are ready to start potty training. they are at the point where they bring me a diaper when they wet their own, and i have even caught alyssa trying to put a new one on herself. they hate being wet or pooped and they understand that they need to be changed. i am trying to put it off as long as i can, but i am just itching to get started. we found an Elmo's World movie about potty training and i think we are going to give it a try. the girls love to watch movies and maybe by putting the potty in the playroom and letting them watch the movie it will spark some interest. here is a picture of alyssa trying to take off her wet diaper and put on a dry one. what you can't see is that she eventually opened the diaper and layed it on the floor. she then decided to lay down on it like she was trying to put it on. my stomach hurt the rest of the day from laughing so hard. she is just a hoot!
here are both of my little darlings. allison loves to stand and poor little alyssa is still trying to change her own diaper. they sure do bring a lot of smiles to my face. oh wow! i don't even know what to say to this picture. she is such a character...this is allison btw.

i can't believe September is coming to an end. :( but i know that with that comes October (my birthday and Halloween) November (thanksgiving and the end of Fall) December (Christmas and lots of memories/traditions). i am a young wife and mother and i can't wait to watch my little family grow. i have so much to be thankful for this year and i can only hope that next year will be just as fantastic. thanks to everyone for reading my blog...i enjoy writing it and letting you in on all of my experiences, joys, troubles, laughter and poopy days.
