Kid update

Oliver will be 6 months old next week! I can't believe how quickly this past year has gone. He's starting to sit on his own, and he can roll over (if he wants to - he's usually content to stay where I put him). We started feeding him cereal, but he's not too interested in it yet. He's babbling and cooing all the time, and he's such a happy baby. :)

is well into the "terrible twos" even though her birthday isn't until September. We're working on potty-training, which has been interesting. She wants to empty the potty all by herself. She wears the potty on her head and calls it a hat. She likes to run around naked yelling "no diaper!" It seems like it's just one battle after another with this one. But she's so sweet...yesterday I was a little bit overwhelmed with everything, and she kept coming up and saying "Mommy sad? Hug? Tiss? Mommy all better!"

Matthew has been spending the summer watching tv, playing with Lauren and Oliver, swimming at the pool, riding his bike, and playing video games. What a life, eh? He's excited about starting third grade in the fall.
