Potty Time

We have been "potty training" for about 2 weeks and things are going along slowly. I don't know if its me that's not ready or him that's not ready but I think we are just going to take it one step at a time and see how it goes. I am definitely not going to push him if he is not ready. We bought a couple books and this potty...
D likes sitting on the small potty/vs big potty and likes to dance along to the music, but he doesn't actually use the potty yet. Right now we are at step one of just sitting on the potty and eating M&Ms for sitting for a long time. Tonight he dropped one (an M&M) in the toilet and picked it up and ate it when I wasn't looking...oops. At least he didn't pee in it! Ha!  If we get desperate, we might try the "run around in just underwear at home all day" method and see how he does, with a towel in each room ready to wipe up pee. Oh the joys of potty training! :)

We took Dillon bowling for the first time on NYE with our friends and he had a blast! He also loved the arcade! I love how he excited he was even though he didn't knock down the pin...and I'm pretty sure he had a better score than I did.

Head-Shots for Website

My photography website was in need of some updating so I asked a friend from high school, who is also a photographer, to take some head-shots to put on my welcome and bio page. This was something I am not use to and definitely felt weird being on the other side of the camera!  We had a blast exploring downtown Cary as we tried not to freeze to death! Here are a few pictures I plan on using!  Chris did a great job, you can find his website here!

Dillon turned 2!! (in November!)

Birthdays are fun and they only come once a year, so why not have big parties?! I planned a big party for Dilllon's first birthday and the second one was not as big, but definitely put some planning into it. This year is probably the last of the crazy parties for a while, the first two were awesome but I might not have as much time as I did for those. Party planning is fun but can stressful. Especially when you plan for an outdoor party the end of November and do not reserve the shelter. Talk about an ulcer. Luckily, we had perfect weather (sunny and 70's) and no one was at the shelter when I arrived 2 hours early to set up! Yay!  Dillon had a choo choo train themed party and enjoyed all of it...except the cake again. He just didn't want to destroy daddy's awesome creation. :)  All of the cute labels, banner, cupcake toppers, etc came from Etsy, which was super easy because all I had to do what print and cut with a puncher and paper cutter! We had a great time with friends and family and Dillon got some fun gifts, lots of train stuff which he loved! Here are some pictures from his special day!

Catching up and Fresh Look

Please excuse me as I post about things that happened about 2 months ago...I am way behind and need to catch up!  Also freshened up the blog with a new header and picture! One of my New Year resolutions was to blog more often so here I go!
