Latest House Project

So 1 thing we didn't like about our house was that there wasn't a living room that opened up to the kitchen. We have a front formal living room but you can't see our kitchen from it, then we have a bedroon right off the kitchen that we've always had as an informal living room or family room. So just before Christmas Cody decided to start a new project- tearing out part of the wall from the family room to open it up to our kitchen.

This past Saturday we finally got one of the hard parts over with. We had to put a beam in the wall, up near the ceiling because the wall is a load bearing wall. A good friend of ours from our old neighborhood came over to help us.

And now it looks like this. We think we want to put french doors on so we still have the option of closing to room off if we want.

Fri. Feb. 11th

Yesterday Londyn had a Valentine's Party at school. This is her all ready to go!
Of course Jackson had to get in on the action!
He's not too happy I made him get off the arm of the couch and sit next to his sister.
Later that night he went pee pee on the potty for the 1st time! I was pretty impressed given that he's only 18 months and 1 week old.
This picture is a reinactment of the actual event! He was in the bathroom. He pointed to his diaper and said, "wet." "Elmo." We have a potty seat that has Elmo on it. So I asked him if he wanted to go potty and he raninto the bathroom and found Londyn's old potty. So I sat him on it and sat next to him on the floor for about a minute. Then he started to get wiggly and wanted to stand up, so I thought, "oh well, we gave it a good try." But when he got up I looked in the potty and there was PEE! Yay! Crazy what we get excited about, but I was so afraid he'd be hard to potty train. I'm not sure I'm ready to really potty train him, but atleast we're off to a good start!
