Patio, again, and other things

The guys have been working hard in the backyard. I am loving the flagstone that has been laid around the patio! It just makes it so much more "dressed up", so to speak.

This was last Thursday, when they laid the flagstone.


This is what they did yesterday - you can see one of the footings and now the flagstone has grout. Both footings are now dug (you can't see the other one) and today the inspector will be here to make sure it's...dug right, I guess.


William has been very challenging for me lately. The Twos were fine. But now that he's Three...oh man. Anyway, he opened this box of noodles the other day and dumped them all on the floor "to look at them, Mommy!" I quickly scooped them back up into the box, thinking of the 10 Second Rule, but after looking at all the fuzzies and hairs in the box with the noodles, I just couldn't fathom actually using them for food. So, instead of just throwing them away I let William play with them (andandthequicklysweaptthefloor). He had so much fun!

Here's Abby, playing Hide and Go Seek with William. They both love this game! She'll run and find a spot to "hide" (usually right in the open) but William plays along perfectly, pretending he doesn't see her and then creeping up on her and scaring her. She loves it! Sometimes she'll sit there with her hands over her face or a diaper over her head, thinking since she can't see us we obviously can't see her! It's just too cute!



William is cough cough potty trained. He dislikes his pull-ups and wants to wear "underwears". I really just don't have the energy to talk about potty training anymore. It continues to be a seemingly endless road, BUT for the most part he makes it to the potty on time. And Abby just has to get in on all the fun. I have a feeling she will be a breeze to train.

I can't think of an appropriate closing, so...

Then End.
