"no pee pee on elmo"

every day when we put on aidan's elmo underwear, he very solemnly says, "no poo poo on unnerwear" or "no pee pee on elmo".  he loves his elmo underwear.  he has been doing SO WELL!!  i'm so proud of him.  He stays dry all day now!  He holds it like a pro!  We still put a diaper on him at night and during naps, but lately, he's been waking up dry from his naps.  I'm hoping we can ditch the nap diaper soon!  what a boy...

We went to Annie's house today.  We packed Auntie Monin in the car with us and we had a great visit.  Annie is always such a sweet and gracious hostess, and gives Aidan his "heecuts" (haircuts).  She always does such a great job and Aidan is really learning how to trust her with those scissors.  It was nice to get out of the house today!  Thank you Annie!  And thank you, Robin, for coming with us and keeping Delia out of all that hair.  I am blessed to have such great friends in my life.

Our new pastor started this past Sunday.  He really did a great job and seems to fit in just fine!  I honestly can't think of a better fit than he and his wife and two kids!  It's great to see everyone embrace them as our new pastor as well.  I look forward to getting to know them better in the months and years to come.

Delia:  poor, poor little Delia.  She is a teething mess.  Please pray for me!  Her little temper is starting to flare every now and then and man, that little girl can have ATTITUDE!  She's only 1!!  She's great most of the time, but is starting to show her colors when she doesn't like something.  I am just not used to this.  She has her top 2 teeth and bottom 2 teeth and is working on 4 more on the top.  No molars yet, which is pretty much on par with Aidan's teething schedule.  Yuck.

I have started my regular workouts at the gym.  I feel so good about it and I just have a great time taking time for myself.  It's pretty easy so far, but I need to learn to push myself more.  I went back to my old gym and met with the manager of the gym.  He gave me the hookup, including free childcare, which is a huge blessing to me!!  For up to 2 kids for a year!  I'm so incredibly grateful.

Well, I've gotten you caught up a little bit on what's going on around here.  I hope you all are doing well, whoever is reading this.  I know my posts have been a little sporadic and I'm ready to dive in again.  Love.
