With only his big boy undies on we braved Health Works on day five of potty training. We met Lily James there and they hit the ground running.
They slid and slid.
And in between trips around to the slide Jett needed to potty five times. I worked up a sweat toting him back and forth to the potty chair in the car, but he did it. I felt like we turned the corner this day, we were committed, and there was no turning back.
Date Night with these two friends and our beaus. We secured a sitter for the first Sunday of Spring Break and headed to Taylor. It was nice to get some adult conversation in with out trips to the potty, playing with trains, or toddler talk.
With the extra two days of Spring Break because of ice we decided to hard core start training Jett. It didn't start out really well at all. With us being serious it was not so much fun for our baby boy.
It's been five months this past week since my Daddy passed. This week marked my first snow days without him on this Earth to talk about it with. From the onset of and early talks of snow my dad and I always would touch base to discuss what we thought would happen. Daddy would read me the seven day forecast and then the weather channel updates. He gave me driving tips and always would call as the first snowflakes fell in Ecru.
As I watched and waited on the weather to move in, I missed him. As I watched Jett have a big time in the snow this week, I know Daddy would have braved slick roads to watch him if he had been here.
And this morning as I thought back over how much my Daddy like to get out and play in the snow, I thought about what his grave must have looked like covered in snow. I worried and wondered if I should have driven by just to check, just to see.
Five months and I still catch myself reliving our final days together, our final moments. I don't think about it all the time, I don't cry every week, but I am still sad.
Jett slept until 7:45 this morning, and if he takes an awesome nap today we may move to Wyoming just to get some good rest. When he finally woke up he said he wanted to go down the big hill again. After breakfast he was more interested in watching Thomas on the bed than getting his layers on and going in to the cold. So about 9 o'clock he laid down in the floor made a pretend snow angel and wanted his layers on, to go outside.
Cullen's first task was to make a snow man. It was super easy and he was ready to go for a walk.
We made it to the big hill today and almost had the whole thing to ourselves. Today he took more than a couple of rides down the hill and then we sledded back around town. He walked some and then we headed from our house to the hospital to see Sadie. My mom had to work late yesterday and wound up spending the night at the hospital overnight so she could be at work early this morning.
After our courtyard photo shoot we kept on moving and Jett laid down in the sled.
On the way we saw Webb Kennedy, one of my mom's high school classmates' grandson. I took him for a little ride with Jett and then we were back on the journey to the hospital.
And then we found Say Say, she fixed us some hot chocolate and and let us warm up our hands before we headed back to the house.
