Cereal Time...4 Months Old!

Sad but true, Abbie Grace is now eating cereal! Yesterday for lunch she had her first "solid" food and seemed to like it...of course she loves to eat so there wasn't much doubt! This morning she did even better. It's so sad that she is already at this stage. Where did the time go! She is 4 months old today.

Potty Training...

This afternoon we started potty training...oh joy! We bought Ian Cars, Thomas, and Tool underwear and have been telling him all week he couldn't wear them until he used the potty. He didn't really care though! So I spoke with his daycare teacher and we have decided to just put him in the underwear and see what happens. So a timer goes off every 15 minutes for him to sit on the potty for 5 minutes. As you can see from the picture the potty is now in front of the tv! So far no action but we are still hopeful! Pray pray pray!

Skyline Drive

Today we went to skyline drive with Joe's parents to see the leaves in full color. It was so beautiful! Ian had a great time. We had breakfast overlooking the ridge then went on a 2 mile hike.

Thomas the Train Slippers

One of my friends from work sent Ian some Thomas the Train slippers and boy does he love them. He took off his shoes immediately and put them on and hasn't taken them off since! Thanks Ms. Julie!!!

Amish Abbie Grace

Abbie Grace and I went to Lancaster County PA this past weekend for a chocolate festival. We put Abbie Grace in one of the bonnets to see what she would look like.

Fun Fall Stuff

This weekend was full of fun outside activities around VA.

Friday we went to the farm and Ian went on his first pony ride. Grandpa is so proud! He also fed the goats, went on a tractor ride, and played on the hay. Saturday we all went to the Corn Maize (www.cornmazeintheplains.com) and let 2-2.5 year olds lead us through the corn fields. The did incredibly well:)

We have started going to a new church for the past 3 weeks and are really enjoying it. We have met some really neat couples that are in the same stage of life as us so we have lots to talk about and compare notes:)
