Our Week

The week started out great with Gabriel using the potty many times successfully. We told him if he started using the potty like a big boy, he could get a coveted backpack like his big sis. True to our word, we picked him up a little "big" boy Spiderman backpack. He just keeps getting better at using the potty. Today, he even prompted two of his potty trips all by himself by telling me he had to use the potty. Way to go, Gabriel!

During one of his naps this week, I walked in to see Gabriel had fallen asleep in a very weird and uncomfortable looking position. I'm not sure how sleeping like this is at all possible. I guess he didn't either, because he woke up about 15 minutes later crying and couldn't go back to sleep. The rest of the day he was a crab.

Krista and Gabriel have a typical brother/sister relationship. One minute they are happily sharing and playing together and the next they are screaming at each other. Oh, I hope I'm ready for the joys to come.

This is the look that has been on Logan's face for most of the week. He's been teething again, crabby and tired.

That is, until today - he decided that savaging for leftover food would be a great idea after lunch. It looks like he met with success at finding some crackers.

Congrats on the potty progress - sounds like he's ready for this! And, I'm sure, a backpack just for him helped out.

We find Elliot in weird contortions too. I think he sits up (trying not to sleep) but sleeps and falls over or something. I'd be a wreck if I slept like that!
