We have had a busy week starting with last weekend.
Last Sunday morning we went food shopping. Brandon and Wesley had fun driving the shopping cart.
Later in the day we went to Ava's 3rd birthday party. It was at her grandparent's house and they have a pool. Both boys had so much fun swimming.
The big news around here is that last Monday we started potty training Wesley. Wesley helped me throw away his diapers on Monday morning and he put on underwear. He was really proud to wear it. By Wednesday afternoon he was pretty much potty trained.
Brandon also started going to the rec camp in our town on Monday. He missed the first week since he was still at Silton Swim School. He loves it there so far. They do different activities/ go on different trips every day. Last week he went to the pool twice, went to the movies one day, had a craft day where they went to the Oakhurst meeting room, and played pirate bingo. Brandon also gets to ride the bus to and from camp every day which he loves.
Brandon's friend, Shane, comes home on the bus with him every day and stays at our house for about an hour until her babysitter comes to get her. Brandon and Wesley have been having so much fun with Shane here. Wesley tries to be one of the big kids and play with them. They have fun playing Wii most days.
We made Wesley's crib into a big boy bed on Monday. He has been doing pretty well in it. The second night he got out of bed 8 times in about 3 minutes so he now has a sticker chart that he earns a sticker on if he stays in bed. That has helped a lot.
On Friday night we went out to dinner in Belmar at the 9th Avenue Pier. The kids enjoyed looking at the boats when we were done.
On Saturday we went to Charlee Ann's 2nd birthday party. It was at Gymboree.
Yesterday we went to Alex's 3rd birthday party. He had a bbq at his house. There was a bounce house set up, a wading pool, a slide, water table, and cars. Both boys had a blast. Alex's mom and her sister own horses so we walked over to see the horses. Brandon loved them but Wesley refused to even look at them.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
