Spring has finally arrived in North Texas and the trees are starting to bud and leaf out, flowers and herbs are being planted by neighbors and some are even getting their gardens ready for the planting season.
When I looked I could see that my holyhocks were starting to form buds and I can hardly wait to see the gorgeous blooms that appear.
Neighbor's columbines are in full bloom and seeing them makes me long for springtime in the rockies.
After a year of trying to entice the big girlie into going to the potty she has decided that maybe it is now time. She was just not interested before - not one little bit. We had purchased all kinds of potty seats - the one that fits over the big toilet, a regular potty chair and then (thanks to my mother) the potty chair that sings when you have gone to the bathroom. Nothing seemed to work.
Then a few months ago a miracle happened - she took an interest and is now well on her way to becoming a BIG girlie.
After seeing his sister use the potty, our little man has wanted to experience the joys of sitting on the potty so we have been letting him try it out. What a little man he is and, by the way, he turns turn two years old tomorrow (birthday party at Lyly's house Saturday. Lots to do to get ready.)
This little guy can always find joy and excitement in everything that he does.
While I have a hard time entertaining everyone during the day our little one is growing up so fast and loves just watching her brother and sister.
These are the moments of a grandparents day that makes it all worthwhile.
