All three kids

  • They’re all finally potty-trained for day and night {Henry we finally just had to take away the night time diaper, because he was dry every morning, but if I didn’t get him changed fast enough he’d poop and then say he needed a shower}.
  • They’re all in big kid beds: The boys have bunk beds and the girls have bunk beds.
  • No more naps….which is killing me.
  • They’re actually starting to listen more and help with things around the house. Elanor in particular loves helping.
  • They’re all obsessed with having a loose tooth.
