A Big Moment in the Lee House

A huge accomplishment has occurred at the Lee house! Jayden can now wipe himself after he goes poopy! I're thrilled, but seriously, this is big stuff people! (Don't worry...I'm not posting a picture on this blog post!)

You see, Chris and I have been discussing this for awhile now. We have been trying to decide when he needed to be taught this skill, and we decided that it should be sooner than later because he will have to have it perfected by the time he starts pre-k in another year. So, one night last week, I knew that Chris was using the restroom, and I heard him start talking to Jayden. I heard him say, "See Jayden, you need to pull off about this much toilet paper. Then you fold it up, and wipe your bottom. Then, you check for poopy. You keep doing it until you don't see anymore poopy." It was hilarious...and I'm sure you're all glad that I told you that my hubby was going poopy! :)

The next time Jayden went number two, he called Chris in there, and they worked on wiping. He couldn't quite get the hang of wiping himself on the potty, because his hand kept almost going into the water. EEEWWW!!! So, Chris taught him how to gracefully "leap" off of the potty without wiping his rear end across the seat (which would be oh so gross), so that he can stand up and wipe. It is the funniest thing ever! He leans over to where his head is almost touching his feet, and he gets his toilet paper and folds it up, and tries to wipe. Sometimes he is successful, and sometimes you hear Chris say, "that was your leg bud...try again!" He always gets the job done though!

A Special Treat

Chris and I love quiche, and since he is home on one of his weeks off right now, I decided to try to make quiche lorraine for breakfast yesterday. It took forever to make (an hour and a half), but it was definitely worth it! It was delicious!!!

The mini quiche out of the oven!

Yummy! All stacked up on a plate and ready to eat!

I think they turned out really pretty!
These did not stay on my plate for long. I think they may have lasted about 20 seconds on my plate before I had to get seconds!

My two favorite boys in the whole wide world!

I love them so much! I am so thankful to have been blessed by the most wonderful husband and son anyone could ever ask for!

True Athletes...

While on vacation in Missouri, we played several games of badminton with Chris' family. I had never played before, and I have to say, I was a natural (I hope you sense the sarcasm in that statement)! Seriously though, I wasn't horrible, and had a great time. This is possibly one of my favorite pictures ever taken of me! It absolutely cracks me up! (Please notice that I am totally in mid-air!)

Nichole and me showing off our badminton skills!

It's Been Three Months...

...since my last blog post, and I'm sorry. Life has been even more crazy than usual over the last three months, and my time has been wrapped up in my family.

What have we been doing the last three months? Well....let's see. Chris and I are another year older, as is my dad. Jayden has still been going to gymnastics and is loving it. We saw my sister for the first time in a year. Chris taught his first adult class at church-it was a singing class and was wonderful! Chris also finished his semester at OU, and made all A's and B's....something he id not think was possible. (I am SO proud of him!) Tornadoes hit my Nana's neighborhood/house and my parents house. They both got new roofs. Chris got Lasik on his eyes and is doing great and can see great! Chris has been working in Arkansas as a roughneck on a drilling rig. He works seven days on and seven days off. He works a total of 88 hours in seven days. This has left Jayden and I by ourselves for much of the summer...we are surviving though! I have a bottle tan and have become a bottle redhead, and my hair is getting long. I have also lost 28 pounds! My parents have lost almost 50 pounds each!!! Chris and I celebrated his birthday and our 5th anniversary in Dallas. We went to see Wicked while there. Jayden and I went with Nonni to Arkansas to see Chris and Papa John at the Lee's new house. We were there for four days and then went on to Sikeston, Missouri to see the rest of Chris' family. We had a wonderful vacation and Jayden got to meet a part of his family that he had never met before. There is a ton more that we have done, but these were the high points!

Enjoy some pictures from our last three months! I'm going to try to post more frequently again, but ya happens, so I can't promise anything!
