Hiett has done a lot of growing up the past few weeks. I am so proud of him and just wanted to share that with everyone. We ran out of diapers and so he had to be potty trained and he took right off with it. He has had a few accidents but for the most part he has been great. We will be taking him to the store next week for his big potty treat. (We did this with Madelyn as well.) We take them to the store and let them pick one toy for being such a big kid.

Also, Hiett has figured out how to peddle his trike. He loves it. He is almost always on it whenever he is outside. It is so nice to go for walks and he rides his trike.

He has grown into such a little boy and not a baby. It is amazing to me how fast they mature once they conquer some of those big things. I am so proud of him and glad he has decided to be a big boy.

Fire Department Party Fun

On Friday night, JD had his summer party with the Fire Department. For two years now they have had the inflatable toys and all kids big and small love them. Sometimes you have to wonder if the adults like it more than the kids. Here are a few pictures from the party.

JD and our friend Bill just before JD tipped the slide.

All the kids on the big huge slide. I think Madelyn went down it at least 15 times.

CJ & Hiett loved the bouncer. They didn't want to get out. Hiett liked it because he could do it himself.

Scare Me to Death!

Madelyn has been on one of those "I'm so big" kicks and she has been picking up CJ and carrying him wherever she wants him to be and getting him in to things. On things that he shouldn't on like Hiett's daybed and his four wheeler. Here is a video of the four wheeler ride. JD had to video it because I was nearly in tears because it scared me so bad. But no one got hurt and Caleb loved it. Now whenever he wants to ride he looks at Madelyn and grunts while standing next to the four wheeler.
