Cooper is totally getting the potty! We started yesterday and you can see he's made it twice :) He gets a sticker each time and after he is done playing with the sticker...we proudly put it on the potty and clap. He loves it and is so proud. I thought 19 months was kinda young and it may take a long time to get out of diapers but...he does seem to "get" the concept.

"Life is always changing; we are always changing. We live in a river of change, and a river of change lives within us. Every day we are given a choice. We can relax and float in the direction that the water flows, or we can swim hard against it. If we go with the river, the energy of a thousand mountain streams will be with us, filling our hearts with courage and enthusiasm. If we resist the river, we will feel rankled and tired as we tread water, stuck in the same place.
If we had the patience and a high-powered microscope, we could sit and stare at our hands and watch the river of change flowing through our own bodies right now. We could watch our cells changing and dying and being replaced, over and over and over. From year to year, every one of our cells is replaced. Literally, who we were yesterday is not who we are today. Our skin is new every month, our liver every six weeks. When we inhale, we breathe in elements from other organisms to create new cells, and when we exhale, we send parts of ourselves out into the atmosphere- into the living, breathing universe. "All of us," writes the medical doctor Deepak Chopra, "are much more like a river than anything frozen in time and space" "
So... as I change like a river I hope you all come along with me.....lay back and enjoy the ride with me. It sure beats floundering around and drowning...like I feel I have done for so long.
A side note:when I am done with this book, I hope to read Tori Spelling's new book on MommyWood....switch up the pace a bit...don't ya think? :)

This weekend went by fast. We just came back from such a nice day at Sea World, the weather was perfect. Sat night I went out shopping and then to River Rocks for a dinner/benefit for Relay for Life. It was a so-so night...no offense to the company of course, I just wasn't really feeling myself, I missed Hope terribly and just the whole thing left me feeling out of sorts.
Today, we enjoyed a nice day with the dolfins...nothing like capping off the weekend with a family outing :) Rob was in heaven with the dolfins as you can see... we also caught a great Elmo show that Cooper adored.

We are recovering from a burst of spring cleaning around here and we are digging out from laundry, laundry and more laundry this evening. So sad to see the weekend go by so fast.

We had such a nice day with Meredith and Brody seeing the Easter Bunny, having lunch and hanging out. Our Annual Easter Egg-stravaganza :)
Cooper wasn't into the Easter Bunny but we managed to get one picture. Mere and I tried to do a photo shoot of the boys in the mall....they weren't really into it as you can imagine. Here are some out takes to enjoy :) Meredith also posted some great pics on her blog.

This week seemed to go by so fast, we are all just wiped out. It's a nice rainy day again here and we hope to have some sunshine this weekend.
