It just felt like the right thing to do today!  I love to bake!  When the weather turns gloomy and cold something whispers to me that it's time to break out the recipes and go to town.  Thank you Pinterest!  Right?  Although, sometimes Pinterest overwhelms me with SO many great recipes to try.  Which one should I start with?  Today, after seeing my mound of Costco Honeycrisp apples, I decided to start here...  And since Jett has been home all week coughing his lungs out, I decided one of his favorites might help him feel better, spirit wise anyway...
Apple Crisp!

My house already smells amazing.  Hope it tastes just as great!

Potty training... not my favorite thing in the world.  I've been avoiding it (kinda) and secretly hoping he'd just train himself.  I think I'm going to have to put SOME effort into this.  With the weather gloomy (not wanting to go outside anyway), I might as well stay in and advance the process a little.  He's been telling me when he goes in his diaper, we've gone several times in the toilet so it's basically time to tie it all together.  The main reason for avoiding this is the fact that he hasn't wanted to put on "big boy underpants."  Today, after changing him, I just slipped them on.  Yes, there was a fight and he got mad, but with a little distraction and convincing him to wear them for "just 5 more minutes," we've gone hours with them on and we've already made one successful trip to the bathroom.  I think this calls for a picture.

Three out of four got strep last weekend.  As a result of strep, the ends of Radds fingers began to peel.  He noticed and did not like it.  He didn't like using his hands.  Every time he looked at them, he would exclaim, "my fingers are falling off."
