Where to even start? I have no clue! So here are some highlights in our lives lately:

It was quite the journey but I think it's safe to say that Oaklee is finally potty trained! Many tears were shed on our potty training journey. . Mostly mine! I can laugh about it now. Hysterically thinking back to putting the 10th pair of underwear for the day in the washer after just scrubbing the floor on my hands and knee's crying out of frustration and thinking that she was never going to get it and I would have a 10 year old in diapers. But I learned a very valuable lesson from her, even though I was beyond ready for her to be trained, she wasn't. And she had to do it when she was ready.
She is a treat. She constantly makes me laugh. Like the other day when out of the blue she sang "pants on the ground" from American Idol. "looking like a fooo". She has an obsession with princess things. Princess plates, princess jewelry, and her favorite, her princess underwear. She has about 5 of the same pair and every single one is always accounted for.
We recently planted a little garden and she loves to help me keep it up. She carries buckets of water and trudges through the plants and dumps it where ever she thinks needs it, like the only spot in the garden that doesn't have a plant growing. And then says "Mom this is so beautiful."
She loves cupcakes and sprinkles. Swings and books. Nursery, and coloring books. I love her so much.

Bridger is squishy. I absolutely cannot help but pinch his bum when he is naked. And his legs, oh my those legs. He had the same stats as Oaklee at 2 months. 11 lbs 8 ounces. He will be 3 months on the 1st of June and for the life of me I cannot figure out where that time went? He makes me so happy.

Colton got a new job at Nestle and we are adjusting to the difference. It's a lot different schedule but were pretty excited for the change. He is a treat too.

As for me, I am truly enjoying life. (as corny as that sounds). but really I am. Motherhood is an amazing, evolving journey. It is so hard sometimes, but the sweetness of it all is breath taking. I find myself wishing I could freeze time for a moment. Freeze when were all, dogs included, laying on our bed crunching pop corn all over my sheets watching a movie. Or flying each other off our massive bean bag and cracking up. Just the simple times, when were all together.
