I am so excited that Keegan is making progress in the potty department. Up to this point he had no interest in potty training. We have tried everything....candy, stickers on a chart, big boy underwear, pull ups. You name it, we have tried it. I figured he will do it when he is ready. Well, I decided to get some new big boy underwear for his Easter basket. After changing his poppy diaper this morning I asked him if he wanted to try his new big boy underwear on. Keegan said sure. I was schocked when he left them on for more than 2 seconds. He wore them all morning without any accidents. He tried to use the potty multiple times, but never went. Right before naptime I told him that he needed to try and use the potty one more time and then we would put a diaper on him. I set him on the potty and went in to use the bathroom myself. I suprised when Keegan came running into the bathroom 3 seconds later saying that he went pee in the potty. I decided to check the little potty and sure enough he did it! There was lots of praising going on at our house at that moment. We ran right out to Daddy's office to tell him the exciting news. We then put a sticker on the potty chart and Keegan called Grandma to tell her the exciting news.

I know some of you are thinking big deal! He wore uderwear for half a day and peed in the potty one time. Well, to us it is a HUGE deal! I am so excited that Keegan is finally willing to at least try using the potty or wear his big boy underwear. I hope this is the start of Keegan becoming potty trained! It will be really nice to only have child in diapers.

List Time

I am a list type of person. I have a hard time remembering things if I don't write them down. I also seem to get a little satisfaction from crossing things off my list after I accomplish them. On the flip side, I always seem to be a little disappointed if I don't accomplish everything, which often happens. Life just seems to happen and it doesn't always match what is on my list.

I was making a list today of all the things I would like to get done this week. Keegan decided he would like to make a list too. So, he started scribbling on a piece of paper. He told me that his list said the following:

"Go to the Pet store.
Get a new fish.
Bring him home.
Put the fish in Orange's bowl."
(Orange is our beta fish that died a couple of weeks ago)

Our Week in Pictures!

I love this smile!

Keegan thought this toy needed to be on Truitt's head. After he placed it there he said "he looks like Jesus."
Keegan decided this is the bowl he wanted to eat his yogurt out of one morning.
Easter Eggs!

Saying Goodbye!

It is so hard to say goodbye to someone you love. My grandfather passed away Thur. night. He was a very special person. He was more than just a grandpa to me. I grew up in single parent household, with my mom and my sister. I never really had any contact with my dad. My grandpa was that special male influence in my life. He taught me so many things, including, driving, how to dive (even though my sister and I broke his toe doing it) and the importance of family. I was privileged to take many trips with my grandparents. I have seen much of our beautiful country with them. One of the most special memories I have with my grandpa is of him walking me down the aisle at my wedding.

I am so glad to have had such an amazing and wonderful man in my life. He will be missed immensely!! It was hard to watch him suffer, but I know that he is in a better place now. What an amazing thought to think of him sitting with our Lord and Savior! One day we will be reunited and I look forward to that day. I love and miss you Grandpa!!!!!
