making baby food & sitting up

On Tuesday I worked from 8-12 and Alisha was nice enough to keep J&j for the afternoon while I went home to make some home made baby food!!  It was a LOT of fun and pretty easy!  (thank you Jess for the idea and tips!)  The picture above is about half of what $18 of pureed produce looks like.  I made peas, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, peaches, and bananas.  Jonah LOVES all of it and I'm probably stocked up now for at least a few months!!  

In other news...Jonah is now able to sit up really well by himself!  

I think he is in transition from sleeping all day to wanting to be awake (and held) more and more which is an adjustment for me (and probably Alisha too:) but he has been such a happy guy lately...just think in a few months he will be a little rug rat!

I am still amazed at how well Jayda and Isaiah play together...sometimes she will even ask Isaiah for help before coming to me!  Their new thing lately is to take turns on the potty...Isaiah went pee on the potty three times on Monday!!!  Jayda likes to sit on the potty but hasn't quite figured out how to get there in time.  On Wednesday I made them each a potty chart, so now instead of an M&M each time they pee, they will get a sticker and when they finally go #2 in the potty they will get a "special treat"!  Last night Jayda was looking at all the stickers and she wanted one so bad!  So she sat on the potty a long time but still no luck.  I explained she only gets a sticker after she pees, and she agreed, "yea- I go pee on the potty and get a hot dog sticker!"  (hot dog is her name for mickey mouse)  Haha, she'll get it soon enough:)

The other day I caught them snuggling during their "show" before nap time.  It was too cute not to share...

Here's another picture of them playing outside this last week... I am so excited for spring to get here- it is going to be so much fun playing outside with the little ones!!!
