I swear all I did was blink and my kids all seem so grown up! I've got to be honest, it's a little bitter-sweet. Some days I want them to just stay the way they are right now forever. But then there are all of those other days that make me change my mind....know what I mean?... ;) Anyway, my kids have all hit some big milestones these last few weeks (okay...big for me...) and I wanted to share with you all!

Brooklyn turned 6 this last month!! I can't believe it! She is growing up, and even got to go on her first field trip!! She helps us out a lot with her brother and sister, and is such a good girl! She loves to make people laugh and is so much fun to be around!!

I can't believe I actually get to say this....but after giving up all hope that there was any light at the end of the potty-training tunnel....we did it!!! Yes we did. ASHLYN IS POTTY TRAINED!! I don't know if it is cute or just plain pathetic that I am so excited about it...but I don't care. It is done. Hallelujah.

And now to Dyson! This is Dyson on a typical day. He is such a happy, joyful little boy :) He is such a good baby, and I honestly love being around him. He has such a sweet, tender little spirit. It is fun having a little boy around the house to help balance out all of the estrogen! Dyson rolls all over the place, and just this week he has figured out that he can move a lot faster if he army-crawls...(kind of wish he hadn't figured that one out yet...)! He loves being around his big sisters and love loves to pull their hair...much to their dismay:)

Okay...promise I am wrapping up :) Last week Derick and I got to get away for a night to the Alaskan Inn, an awesome B&B in Ogden Canyon. It was nice to spend some time away from the kids relaxing. I highly recommend it... but will spare you all other details... ;)

Okay...I really am done. Thanks you to those of you who made it through this long post!
