Oh the joys of children

So this weekend we had a little wedding shower to go to. A good friend of mine is getting married in August and being the great friend that I am, I'm bailing on the wedding to go spend a week at the beach with my family. Originally I was supposed to be in the wedding, but that changed due to Mr. D. Then I was just going to be an attendant, but when I got the invitation I realized that the wedding and my one and only vacation this year were on the same weekend. Really sucky. So we went to the shower where the only people I knew were the soon to be newlyweds and their kid. i don't do well with new people and strange situations, but for her I sucked it up and went.

It was actually kinda of fun. We met some really nice people that have a daughter that's a month younger than Mr. D. They were best friends with the groom. It would be nice if they lived closer so we could get to know them. They were our kind of people.

So we talked and ate and watched Butter and the brides daughter play. Then when most of the people had left we let the kids play in the pool. Well Butter and I played. K stayed with Mr. D and just laughed at us. Yes I actually ventured in the pool, with a swimsuit on and everything. Butter surprised me though. We have gone swimming before and she has always liked it. Both K and I figured that she would enjoy this, specially since her best friend was going in with us. Boy were we wrong. She through a complete fit, and wanted nothing to do with it. But me being the great mom that I am prevailed and she ended up staying in the water and eventually did have a great time. By then end though she was shivering so bad that I made her get out early. She then though another fit. Man I love two year olds.

I vow to do better.

I started this so that I could keep up with my life. Well I guess that things always seem to get the better of me. Its funny how, sometimes, no matter how much you want to do something life gets in the way.

Whats new with me?

Well the new little one , Mr. D, is now three months old. It's amazing how big he is getting and how much he varies from his sister, Butter. At three months she was just starting to sit up on her own. He at three months is starting to stand but not sit. Also we think that he is starting to teeth. Butter teethed started at three months as well, however it took about three more months to get that first tooth to stay. We are so hoping that this isn't going to be the case with Mr. D. I really don't want him to have to go through what she went through.

Also the big news around the house is that Butter is starting to potty train. Well for those of you that know me in the real world, you know that we tried this before and she did great until the new one came. We are back at it though and its going well. This is the second week of "Big Girl Panties" and she only having one to two accidents a day. Usually those are due to us not getting her to the bathroom quick enough, not ones where she goes due to her not paying attention to her needs. It will be so nice to have her out of diapers. My wallet is already starting to sigh with relief.

One the home front we did have some sad news. We had to put down our first kitty, Fuzzy aka McFat. It was so sad but she was getting old and had started to pee on the couch. Now this cat has always peed on random things, usually when her litter box was full. But for the past 6 months she has decided that she doesn't want to use the box and would rather pee on the couch. This was a no go for us and we finally hit a breaking point. She is very missed, but the second cat, Imp, has become much more friendly with us. I think McFat had put her paw down and declare us her territory, so this one never really has been super friendly.
