karaskitchen This dude gave us a run for our money on our first day of potty training. The wet deck here is a perfect symbol of how our day went. We celebrated small victories, though, and I've never been more grateful for @ckstevenson as he basically ran the show and kept me calm. 3w
  •   luttla01 Love this!! 3w
  •   mdonofrio The first day sucks. I cried after the first day and wanted to quit. Hang in there. 3w
  •   jjags1129 Oh I feel for you guys! Keep at it. And this is a great picture! 3w
  •   karaskitchen So glad to hear that I'm not the only one @mdonofrio but day two is already at least better than day one. 3w
  •   splatteredapron Hope day two went well for you guys! 3w
  •   abchmura Oh no! Hopefully day two is better. 3w
  •   skippee We are potty training too! Not a fan of the anxiety when going out and extra loads of laundry. Looks so cute in his rainboots~ so appropriate for keeping dry, lol! 3w
  •   joanneshuck Sounds like a progress on day two! Yay! Way to go M! My mom did all the dirty work at the beginning of Alexa's potty training coz she started her pretty young (under 2) when they were home while I was at work. Pretty much didn't suffer from any anxieties over this! Moms are the best! 2w

karaskitchen He was sooo excited to slide with her. And she was admittedly (way) more excited than she appears. First (and second and third... ) tandem slide = success! 3w

karaskitchen She was all bent out of shape that I finally put her in a swing. 1mon
  •   akrempp Did you take this with your phone? If so, how did you get it so sharp? All my swing photos are blurry. 1mon
  •   skippee Aww~ best pic of the day! So cute! 1mon
  •   karaskitchen I did @akrempp trying to think how I got this one. I think I just took a ton and probably moved the phone slightly in the same direction and speed that she was moving a bit. I also tapped on the screen now and again when I could to get it to focus on C. Hope that helps! 1mon
  •   karaskitchen Best comment @abchmura !! She was giggling so loud! 1mon
  •   merrittshu Adorable. 1mon
  •   shannwells The epitome of joy! I adore this!! 4w
  •   becs_82 This is beautiful. I can't believe how big she is! 3w
  •   dineanddish I can hear her joy! 3w

karaskitchen Nicest (custom, handmade) lemonade stand ever. That would explain the inflated $0.50/cup price. 🍋 1mon

karaskitchen Note to self (and other parents): moving truck ramps provide hours of entertainment 1mon
  •   joanneshuck Look at him go! Yea, are you guys moving? 1mon
  •   alfoxvt That grin says it all!! Impressive skills M! 1mon
  •   karaskitchen You must get him this kind @mcopley ! It's a Kickboard USA micro mini. The best. If you get on their mailing list, they send out coupons frequently. 1mon
  •   karaskitchen No no @deewags @joanneshuck it's our neighbors' and thankfully they aren't moving either, just storing stuff during a kitchen reno. 1mon
  •   akrempp He is so adventurous! 1mon
  •   paperlemon Haha!! So fun! 1mon
  •   skippee Woah~ so cool!!! What a happy pic! 1mon
  •   mcopley1028 Thank you! 1mon

karaskitchen I'm a little obsessed with her suit. So maybe I don't mind dressing little girls after all. 1mon
  •   shannwells She is NOT standing! NO! Sit her back down!!! Lol :) (you JUST told me you were pregnant with her yesterday, geesh!!) 1mon
  •   laurieharmer Ruffles are so cute on her 1mon
  •   jayne0329 I am or may not be wishing I had a girl to dress up after seeing this... 1mon
  •   sooki_c It's darling!! 1mon
  •   karaskitchen Thankfully she's not pulling herself up yet @shannwells . She stood like this in the pool for like 25 minutes playing, though, and has started to push herself into a sitting position from crawling so I assume it's coming our way. But I'm happy for it to come on its own time. Speaking of kids growing up, that Finley of yours is killing me!! 1mon
  •   karaskitchen Right @jayne0329 ?! But don't be jealous as it's usually more stress inducing than fun (for me, at least) because I have no style and thus have none to pass along to her. 1mon
  •   karaskitchen Oh and @jayne0329 I would say (other than hand-me-downs) THIS is my preferred little girl style. 1mon
  •   efgross Cutie!!! 1mon

karaskitchen What a gorgeous view. And so much fun feeding the "ducks". Thanks @amymariehann for organizing. (though I almost didn't post this because I couldn't get over our boys looking 3 going on 12!!) 2mon
  •   jayne0329 Big H just said, "wow m looks taller than I remember" :) 2mon
  •   karaskitchen Yes @jayne0329 that's the problem!! Everyone keeps talking about how much he's grown. Sigh. 2mon
  •   skippee He looks so tall here! What an awesome spot! 2mon
  •   amymariehann They are so big! Can't believe how many words m has these days. So fun! Simple pleasures of childhood. :) 2mon
  •   laurieharmer I can't handle it- I want to do a happy dance when I see babes babes hanging out ;) 2mon
  •   jvakerics Look at those summer curls! Love it! 2mon
  •   carolynjoeart How's he so big already?! 2mon

karaskitchen Nothing says Memorial Day like a "Bug" in a water table in a baby pool. 2mon
  •   laurieharmer So cute. I'm copying you and sticking T in there one of these days. 2mon
  •   akrempp Perfect! Looks like she loves the water. 2mon
  •   abjane17 What a fun idea! 2mon
  •   karaskitchen I can't take credit for the idea @merrittshu @laurieharmer @abjane17 We stole the spot (and the idea) from some new friends we met today. 2mon
  •   karaskitchen Funny that you say that @akrempp she is obsessed with bathtime so we were cautiously optimistic that she would love the pool. Joke was on us: she wasn't having it for the first few minutes, even holding her over the water, acting like we were about to dip her toes elicited screams. But she has no option since we basically live at the pool in the summer so I just stuck her in this table and made her fuss for a few minutes and she finally came around and ended up a happy camper. So we shall see... 2mon
  •   jessica_kesti She looks like she's in hog heaven! cute. 2mon
  •   amberboydvincent Sweetness. 2mon
  •   joanneshuck Omg omg she's the sweetest! She looks exactly like M 1mon

  •   laurieharmer Yes! Great use of their time, do they know about regeneration yet? ;) 2mon
  •   laurieharmer Hadley's teacher taught her class about it and she taught her sissies and they are very fascinated with that aspect of worms. 2mon

karaskitchen This afternoon was one of those gorgeous days when you would spend 45-minutes playing in your (very tolerant) neighbor's antique Pontiac. 2mon
  •   joanneshuck Oh M you gorgeous gorgeous boy! I want to hold him! 2mon
  •   skippee He looks so tall and cute here! How fun! 2mon
  •   karaskitchen Anytime @joanneshuck !! 2mon
  •   enolan001 Ummm.... Who's got the Pontiac??? 2mon
  •   karaskitchen See @enolan001 your neighbors don't have this in Richmond do they? It's the grandfather of the girls renting next to the Crowleys. The kids had a blast. 2mon
  •   deewags So awesome. He is getting so big - crazy our boys are growing up 2mon

  •   jjags1129 Oh what fun!! An obstacle course! That's got to be a blast... (and a great way to burn off some little boy energy!) 2mon
  •   laurieharmer He is so 3! Big boy scooter riding. 2mon
  •   amersly 2mon
