Catch up I havent blogged in forever I know. I have been SO busy. Yes, I know Im a stay at home mom, but I have been. More like just busy in my mind, but still. I just have not had the energy to do anything extra lately. I have still been reading everyones blogs, but thats the extent of it. SO any hoo...I think my "winter resolution" is to do better.

Heres a quick catch up and then I will try harder to keep ya up to date from now on:
My big boy is pretty much potty trained!! THANK GOD! He has been doing so well. He has not had on a diaper except for nap and night time in like two weeks. The big test was yesterday. We went out shopping all day and he never had one accident! He even went #2 while we were out. He is doing so good. I am so proud of him.
He is also such a big help with Cole. Yesterday I was in the kitchen and I heard Konnor say "Oh, no no Co-wee, that a hurt you!" I looked over and he was gently taking away a tube of Desitin that Cole had gotten ahold of and then patted him on the head. It was so sweet!

He had his 6 month check up on Monday and he was 27 inches (75%) and 16 lb 11 oz (45 %).
Sweet boy wants to crawl SO bad! He is so cute. If he sees something he wants he will get this determined look on his face and scrunch up his eyebrows. He wiggles himself side to side until he eventually makes his way over to it.
He is CRAZY over remote controls (go figure). I swear he would rather play with one than eat. Its so funny how excited he gets when he sees one.
He now has his two bottom teeth and we can see one of the top one starting to poke thru.

Mark started the academy this week and loves it / hates it! He loves that he is actually a part of it, but he has been so drained at night, and its only the first week! He is so good at everything he does though. He has already been made squad leader and was first place in the PT test (physical training). He is awesome.

*Nothing new here. I have started another "eat good/excercise" plan. Yes its about the 10th one since Cole has been born, but I am the worst at sticking to it. Im back to my pre preg WEIGHT but you wouldnt know it by looking. I still want to lose at least 10 lbs.
*I am seriously thinking about working at Kohls thru the holidays. They are always hiring this time of year, and I could do it in the evenings after mark gets home. He is little scared of the idea of "dealing" with the kids after he gets home though, so we will see.

Well, thats pretty much it for now. I will be doing better from now on. I have just been in such a rut for the past two weeks (with everything) but Im ready to get my butt in gear!

Thanks for the update, I was wondering why you hadn't blogged. LOL! I emailed you btw.

I also thought of working part time at Kohls at night. But, like you said(sort of) I don't know that I could trust Chris to handle both girls. hehe..
