Hopefully I don't jinx myself by writing this, but I think it's safe to say that Damon is finally potty trained. You know how I started him the last week in March, well it wasn't going so well. For about four days in a row all he did was mess his pants. I was thinking he wasn't quite ready yet so I stopped and just put him in diapers. Then Saturday I decided "Ah, what the heck", he's never going to learn if I don't. I took the brave step to put him back in his undies. For some strange reason he started to catch on! Since then he's kept his pants dry all day long!!! He's even starting to tell me when he has to go, rather than me having to watch him like a hawk. Now there is only one problem...none of his pants fit around the waist. The diaper added some nice bulk and he is constantly pulling his pants up.

Our Spring Break

At the Aquarium! After two hours of looking at fish, Damon was done at the aquarium. I know Tyler and John wanted to "get their money's worth", but two hours is a long time! Thank goodness Andee slept the whole time in her stroller! Couldn't ask for more than that!

Our Spring Break

Finally a break from school. I told Tyler that we can't stay here in Oakland during spring break. I don't care what we do, but we just have to get away. We decided to go to Pacific Grove. There is a lady from the Oakland 1st ward who has a beach house down there and she let us and our friends John and Heather stay there for the weekend. We had lots of fun at the beach, we went to the aquarium, and ate lots and lots of food! It was a great getaway. I'm sure we scared John and Heather from thinking about having kids. You know how toddlers are...and a baby who is four months old. Sorry guys for the sleepless nights.

My favorite picture

I love how Andee's ears poke out in this picture. I think it is so cute! She is already four months old now. She just started rolling over from her back to her tummy. What a cutie!
