Back again...

Alright! So I have made a resolution that I will blog daily. HA! Ok so here's the thing-pretty sure I have said it before but Troy is a smartie. He knows that when I sit down in the study the attention is not on him and all he has to do is push that pretty little blue button and oh..he gets attention as he shut my computer off. Never fails..every single time. So I have to blog at night. Well after a full day of kiddos I am exhausted and end of falling asleep as soon as I sit down. Anyway I need to be better b/c so many fun thigns happen or we have funny little adventures and I want the kids to be able to read about it someday and I dont want to forget the little things. I posted and saved a bunch of xmas pics but that seems so long ago and I actually didn't feel like writing about that right now. But I know most of you have seen xmas pics on facebook but I still am going to post them with some cute xmas stories..just not tonight. :) Melia is obviously into fashion these days..just look at what she is wearing and chose to put on herself. What you cannot see are the 8 other pairs of panties underneath what she has on. Speaking of which..she is potty trained. Took about a day. I had tried the bribery thing a month or so ago and it worked here and there. Well a week or so ago I told her to go in the toilet..and she did and she just kept doing it. It took about a day of reminding her but no accidents and she pees and poops and does it all herself. Doesnt even tell me..just goes by herself and gets it done. I am so proud of her!!!!
She is speaking so much, too. I LOVE talking to her all day..and I mean all day. She can talk my ear off and especially in the car. I try not to talk on the phone while driving anymore b/c I just love talking with Melia. Plus she makes Troy laugh and it is awesome listening to them.


There's my TROY!! He is almost 14 months and he is a strong minded little boy already. He is just as independent as his sister. I mean we are at the park and he will just walk away from us and keep walking down the sidewalk. He would totally keep walking, too, if I didnt chase him down. He likes to figure things out by himself which is great except when Melia is trying to be helpful...he wants none of that and likes to voice his opinion on that. Oh goodness. It can get quite loud around here. Troy yelling at Melia (in toddler "talk") to leave him alone and Melia yelling at him to Stop crying Troy! I love it all, though. I was eating some green beans today and I jumped up and sat ont he counter. Well Melia looked very concerned and a little annoyed at this. She says "Mommy do not sit on the counter please. It is not safe. Get down." Well that is true and while I wanted to sit on the counter and tell her I am mommy so I can I realize I tell her this all the time and she is sucha little me I love it.


Hey where did you go??



Hmm...



Oh well I found a cheerio...
I promise to post more pics frequently. I am promising this to myself. To sum up the holidays they were great. We had fun going to the beach when we could and just hanging at the house with the kiddos. Dan had 3 weeks off or so and we got to spend some good time with him at home. I loved taking the kids around the neighborhood every night to look at xmas lights. This neighborhood goes off at xmas...lights everywhere. I loved it!! I will write more when I do the xmas post..well until tomorrow..I have some cute pics I need to get up here..ok well this took a lot out of me! ha ha I am so beat!! Melia got her first pair of running shoes "just like Mommy" so need I say more of why I am tired? :)

What a cute and funny little girl!! And Troy has learned early that he has to stand up for himself! They are precious.

Yay you're back! Love Melia's outfit. Potty training sounds tough...nice you got it handled in one day. I'm going to have to fly you in for the day in the near future! Love, Nat

Hey Robyn, its so nice to hear someone blogging who is more like me! A month between blogs. Yyyyeessss! hahaha Ironman is here today at Alex Beach and I'm thinking of you and Dan. Wishing you were here competing :( I think I'll wander down there when savvy wakes up. And I LOVE the potty training story. Proof exactly that you should wait to potty train till the child is READY. I am determined to leave savvy in her diapers until she is a willing participant. I don't need the stress thank you! Mind you I am not looking forward to wiping a 2+ year olds poopy bum either! hhahha
