Potty training

Today I got a call from Maria at daycare. Unfortunately I was not in my office, so I just got a voicemail, but she told me that Rowan  had something exciting to say. I heard his little voice in the background and she said, "Ok, you want to tell her? Ok, tell her what you did!," and he said, "I poo-poo in potty!!" He was so proud of himself. Ahh, we must remember this day. I'm sure he'll thank me for this blog post someday;)

Picnic again

Another video


It was a beautiful day Saturday, so we went on a picnic at the Botanical Gardens. Here's Alex giving Rowan a cookie. At first he thinks it is an apple (which is good that he gets as excited about apples as cookies, I suppose).


Maybe I should put him in a tumbling class or gymnastics or something:) Also note the cheering squad in the background. We are very enthusiastic! :)

Just real quick

I'm taking a break for a second to put this picture up. Dad sent this picture from Rowan's birthday. Too cute:)

Goodnight Thweehar

Rowan's favorite thing for us to sing to him: Goodnight Sweetheart (well it's time to go..do, do, do, do). He loves it, and he requests it by saying, "Goodnight thweehar, Mommy!"

He's talking all the time now, using almost complete sentences much of the time. In the mornings it's almost non-stop in the car on the way to work/daycare. He's been fascinated with the rain saying, "Mommy's car wet," and, "We need umbrella, Mommy!" (though he says umbrella with quite a few extra syllables). It's really cute. I'm really enjoying hearing all he has to say and can't wait to hear more.

Today we have to go to the doctor. That may not be very fun. He's been limping. I hope we don't have any sprains or breaks! But it is best to get all limps checked out.

Make pancakes!

One of Rowan's favorite things to do is to make pancakes with his Daddy. We do this every Saturday morning. The first thing he says is , "Make pancakes!"

Our dogs

 Zinn wants some attention.

Bella's googly eyes

Surprisingly, Bella is the most patient with Rowan. He can do just about anything with her, and she seems to eat up the attention. Zinn is a little wary of him, avoiding him most of the time. Laney is so loving and shows enthusiastic affection towards Rowan, but she's also just a wee bit clumsy and tends to knock him over at times.

Peter Pan

Here is Rowan reading Peter Pan to Emily.

July 31- August 1st (fig picking, pool time)

These pictures were taken weekend before last. We played outside in the pool and just had a regular old wonderful weekend. Oh, and we picked figs from the fig tree in our yard. They were delicious!
Also about that picture of Clarence above - that's a little bubble blower grill that my friend, Teri, gave Rowan. He LOVES that grill and bubble wands. It also serves as a lovely fan on hot days:)

Love you, Clarence! I'll have some new pictures by this evening hopefully.

A visit with Aunt Kathi

Em and Kathi were pretending to be asleep, and then he'd say, "Wake up!!"

Hi Clarence

Hi Clarence! Miss you already! Rowan woke up this morning and said, "Where Daddy go?!" Then he looked me straight in the eyes and said, "Work" and did the little sign which looks like this:

Probably what I should be doing right now, right?

Love you! :)
