changing things up

blarg. i sneezed the other day while holding my coffee and checking email. i spilt said coffee on the keyboard...and now my clicky things by the mouse pad thing don't work. so i can't move those pictures where i want them. oops.

so things are about to change up here at the krout hole.

leo--about done swaddling this kid. moving from newbie-dom into baby-dom. sadness...but they do have to grow i guess. i am looking foward to fewer, but longer naps....he's started some food recently, so we'll start working on more of a breakfast,snack,lunch,snack,dinner,bedtime snack routine instead of every 3 hours all day. i get that it's pretty much the same. whatever. it's different to me.

gus--scared about this one. going to start potty training him tomorrow. he keeps taking his diapers off[wet? dirty? whatever!] and "going potty". he's never actually done anything there...but he's definitely making some connections. so going unders tomorrow. n.e.r..v..o.u.s...and a little tired just thinking about it. 2 in diapers has not been nearly the big deal people make it out to be, but 2 in underwear will be nice! i'm only slightly concerned that all the 2T/3T underwear i kept for potty training purposes might be to small on GUS the BUS. hoping i don't have to buy any!! i seriously have about 18 pairs...

{this is where that diaper picture at the top should be. whatev}

rex--going to be FIVE soon. FIVE!!! good lord. how did that happen? he's not going to K this year, so it's still preschool age to me, but that's totally old enough for school and i'm bummed! every day he asks if it's his birthday. every. day. he wants a DS. HA!! keep dreamin' son....

so before all these big boy things happen, i've been trying desperately to capture our current stages. i love them all right where they are! some things will be easier when they move into the next phase, but i always miss the previous one when it's gone.

love his serious little face and forehead, and his intense determination to eat his entire arm.


  1. First comment!! Shocked?? haha...I think Leo looks a lot like Kev in this last picture! So cute! Good luck on the PT--maybe Gus will be a rockstar--fingers crossed =)

  2. Go "Gus the Bus" :) I love that! He will do great potty training! Claire is in panties most the time now - I LOVE NO DIAPERS!! Go Gus Go!!!

  3. That last picture is priceless. I love reading the stuff that you write about the boys :) So great. I'll be praying for you and Gus as you embark on this new adventure!! Keep us posted (haha - like you don't have enough to do!)

  4. girl, you will have to let me know how the big boy undies go! I have thought about doing that with ours...going cold turkey, except when out and about...particularly Trinity.

    Love all the pics!
