Helping feed the baby orphan lamb
Happy Thanksgiving!WOAH! Better play some massive catch-up on updates. Life is so busy, especially with Mike being gone at least 5 nights a week. I’m sure like most mom’s (especially those who serve as single parents for the most part) know exactly what I mean, but I really have no time to get much done at home besides get dinner ready and kids dressed. HA! I keep thinking that Sutton will be so mad at me for not doing a better job updating about her life and keeping track of pictures. So in advance I’ll apologize- Sorry Sutton, I try it’s just much harder to get done that when I just had one child.
November also flew by, but Mike started to be home s little more. Blaise loved every second of it! He gets pretty sad and upset when Mike leaves and says I miss you daddy I love you daddy all the time to him. I wish I really was writing down everything blaise says because it's either hilarious or amazes me. I swear he might be the next president with how smart he is! He goesnt miss a beat!! He definitely doesn't forget anything either, he can recall or remember stuff from six months ago or more: people's dogs names, where he saw fireworks at on the 4th etc.
So, what's Blaise into these days? Farming. That's all there is to it! Starting a week or two before Thanksgiving we started potty training Blaise. He took off right away, as we had been "playing around" with the potty for months. He still wears diapers at night, but other than that really only had a few accidents before he got the swing of it. We still remind him lots to go, but he does really really good. He can count to ten!! I love hearing him do it. He will mess up and count wrong every once and awhile but is coming right along with it. He loves Sutton to pieces. She loves him to pieces. Every morning he talks to her "hi baby girl" "morning pretty princess" and she just smiles as big as she can at him.
The kids and I weren’t able to get outside as much as in years past because the mosquitos were so bad. We helped finish up the harvest in Treynor, with Blaise still loving helping as much as ever. . Sutton started using her bumbo chair to start practicing sitting up. Still no rolling over for her at all. She turned 4 months old and got her four month shots and the doctor. Blaise came with and wasn’t too sure about it all. Sutton started eating rice cereal and wasn’t very good at it at first. She did turn the corner pretty fast, and then liked it and did really good.
We headed to Kearney the middle of the month to do a day trip out for Tyler and Danielles baby shower. Both kids did excellent in the car and the entire day. Very proud!
We spent Thanksgiving in Treynor. I made a quick Turkey Shirt for Sutton to wear the night before. Blaise had a wonderful time playing with his second cousin Mason. God is good, and we are so Thankful for the wonderful Healthy year 2014 provided.
