Henry Todd

Introducing Henry Todd Wilson!  We feel so blessed to have another sweet and healthy baby boy.  Henry surprised us and arrived 2 days early on September 30!   Henry weighed 8 lbs 11 oz and was 20 3/4 inches long.  We are more than in love with this little baby! More to come...

Potty trained!!!!

Who, me?
Blake has been potty trained for about a month now.  We thought it was a long shot to have him potty trained before baby #3 arrived, but we decided to try and I'm glad we did!  We tried for 3-4 days back in July while we were in Michigan, but it didn't go well at all.  He obviously wasn't quite ready so we backed off and just casually took him to use the potty.  Occasionally he would have success, but not enough to put him in underpants again.  Fast forward a few week into the 2nd week of August.  Blake started asking out of the blue to use the potty several times a day.  He did this for a few days and we decided to give it another honest effort.  It took about a week or so but after that he has been accident free for about a month.  He hasn't had any accidents at school and is even waking up dry from naps.  He still wears a diaper during naps and bedtimes.  It is so nice to have him trained before the baby arrives and a full year ahead of when James trained.  So, I'm currently diaper free for about another week or less. :)

Apple pie day 2012

Another apple pie day has come and gone!  We had to make our pies a little early this year with the baby coming any day now.  We made 11 pies, 1 apple crisp and the kids made cute mini pies.

First day of school

Here are the boys first day of school pictures.  They are having a great year so far!  Blake is in the tots room with Ms Ann and Ms Valerie.  James is in his last year of Pre-K with Ms Angela and Ms Jamie in the mornings and Ms Carrie and Ms Katie in the afternoons.  This is his first year to not take a nap in the afternoons.  He is so tired when I pick him up that he usually falls asleep on the way home.  Blake is so proud to have a back pack just like his big brother.  The boys will continue to go to school while I'm on maternity leave.  I think it will be good for everyone!
