Potty like a princess, potty like a princess!!!

Pip de pipper is four months old.  FOUR.  Where has the time gone?  I am so busy feeding babies, changing diapers, protecting Piper from her "loving" older sister, and cleaning up torn up diapers (thank you dogs), that I feel like I'm missing everything.  Missing the smiles, the giggles, the snuggles.  With both of my girls.  My life feels crazy all the time.. I feel like I can't keep up.  I won't even mention the condition my house is in on a daily basis.  How on earth do people have lots of kids?   Two is plenty, thank you very much.  

To celebrate Pipster's four month mark, we had an elaborate party.  It involved me, Kapri, Piper and some rice cereal!!  Her first solids!!  Kapri insisted on feeding her.  Even when I said "you know Kapri, mama wants a turn too."  She said "nope, its my turn".  To tell you the truth, she was better at it then me.  I just had to watch close so she didn't shove the whole spoon down her throat.  See, she's an over-doer. 

This first picture is of Kapri, when she had her first rice cereal.  She wasn't a fan.

Piper was a different story, she loved it. 

In other news.. we're working on getting Kapri potty trained. When we're home she pretty much goes commando all day. We bring her little pink potty around the house with us. She goes to the bathroom in it all day long... we've had a few issues with poop, but she even pooped in it on her own the other day!!

The problem: once you put panties on her, she pees her pants. I guess she feels like its protection. Where do I go from here? How do I transfer the awesomeness from commando to panties?? Anyone?? Your input would be nice here.

 Don't worry, there is a lot of dancing going on around here.  Its the potty dance.  We do it every time she goes potty.  It involves flailing arms and jumping up and down.  Oh yeah, and LOTS of yelling.

Sore cheeks.

And I'm not talking about my derriere.

My sister, Traci, was here visiting from Florida for the last few weeks.  This, of course, meant that I was also on vacation for three weeks.  Thats how it works, right?  RIGHT? 

Tap, tap.  This thing on???

They went home last Saturday.  Come back.  My house cleaning can wait. 

While they were here, we did a PLETHORA of activities.  Literally.  I think we scared them away.  We had a multitude of bbq's.  Played games.  Did obstacle courses.  Relaxed  Partied it up.

We even went on a vacation to Vegas and California.  (Post on that to come... some time.  I didn't bring my camera.  DER.)  So, what that basically means, is that Traci went on a vacation IN a vacation.  Can you imagine?  Beat that Kardashians

I am now going to post a whole bunch-a pictures.  I might choose to write captions.  I may not.  This is my blog, after all.  If you don't like it, click that there little X up in the corner.

Wait.  I was kidding.  Please come back.

Picture, numero UNO.

JUUUUUUDDE!!!  I have nothing to say about this little boy, EXCEPT, that he is the most edible, delicious, freakin' stinkin' CUTEST little boy ever.  AMEN. 

The other night, we were debating what nick name to use for Piper.  Kapri happily offered up "JUUUUUUUDEEEE!!"  Um, sugar plum, that one's taken.

I don't know why I get her dressed anymore.  She always has something better to wear.  FASHION DIVA I tell ya.

Not a dull moment with this child around. 

 I love every bit of this baby. Drool and all.

This next part is pretty much AMAZING.  Human Rubber Band.  That is the only explanation I am giving you.  You can figure out the rest by browsing through these next few photos.

Wait.  You need more?  If you insist.

Traci wins for best Human Rubber Band pictures. 

My brother-in-law, Jesse (he likes to be called Jessica), set up an obstacle course for us.  I thought I'd suck, but guess what, I didn't.  BIG surprise to me.

Next, we played water balloon volleyball. Yes, we're THAT cool.
Oh look, there's Jessica now.

I mean, seriously.  We know how to have fun.

Just one last thing. 

This is my big, tough, used to hold me down and tickle me until I peed my pants, brother.  The one who is always saying "babies, yuck". 

We all know that deep down you're just a big SUCKER.
