Mother’s Day & More

I never posted more about Mother’s Day.

The weekend before Mother’s day, my parents came down and we had a family get together at our house. My grandmothers and aunt came as well. The weather was gorgeous and we were able to eat dinner outside on our new patio. We had just bought a table for under the pergola, which I have yet to take picture of because it has rained just about every day since then! Hopefully pictures soon! We had such a nice time visiting with everyone the night.

The kids made me some really cute stuff at school for Mother’s day. I have it all hanging on my pantry door and I may just leave it up there for a few months. It is so fun to look at!

Hiro turned 8 this month. We brought him home in July, at two months old. We had gone for a long weekend down to Galveston, with my parents. On our way back, just outside of Bastrop, we pasted a couple on the side of the road selling puppies. Jon asked if I wanted to turn around a go look. I said sure and we ended up coming home with this little guy.

We actually almost got his brother. His brother was super playful and jumping all around. We had taken him out of the pin and were playing with him which we decided if we were going to buy one or not. Then I walked back over to the pin and picked up Hiro. His eyes were so cute. I just fell in love with him and never put him back down. He has turned out to be the best dog either of us has ever had. I told Jon that I just know the next dog we get will be or Marley! We love him so much!

We have been having to play inside a lot lately. I can’t believe the amount of rain we have been getting! It is good and needed, but we are ready for the pool! The kids have been dressing up together and I snapped this picture the other afternoon. I just love how Adelaide is looking at Aedan. She loves him so much!

Potty training has been going pretty well. Adelaide went to school both days last week in undies and was accident free. I have taken her to the gym and running errands and she has done great too. She seems to have more accidents at home and especially in the afternoon. But it is getting better each day.

*I wrote this post last Thursday and I think we much have had a break through because Adelaide has been accident free since Friday. I think we can officially say she is potty trained. It was a rough start, but at just under 2 weeks later she is good to go so I’ll take that as a win.

Adelaide has been playing a lot with our Duplo Legos. She build some fun towers and houses. Everything Aedan builds is perfectly symmetrical so when he saw this he said, “um wow Adelaide, that is really nice. Do you want me to fix it for you?” Ha!

By the time this post is published, Aedan’s preschool graduation will be the next day. I am sure I will be a mess. Not so much that he is going off to kinder, but more because he is leaving his preschool. It’s a good thing Adelaide still has 3 years there, because we just love everything about it. I’m sure I will post some first day of school/last day of school pictures later this week, but here is Aedan on his first day or preschool 3 years ago. Please pass me the tissue box!
