We got our computer back - SO, here are some pics from this past week. The first set of pictures are from Rauly's first time on the potty. We ran out of diapers and I thought we'd give potty training a try. After 2 days of "trying", Chad opted to go buy some diapers...I told him that after we finished the next pack of diapers I'd officially start the potty training...he came home with a HUGE box of 120 diapers - LOL!!! We really didn't get frustrated with her at all...we just feel like she doesn't understand quite yet. We're going to start sitting her on the potty before her bath every day until the box of diapers runs out and hopefully by then she'll understand better what's going on. :)


The second set of pics are from a few days ago when we went to the pool. Rauly started swimming with her floaties ALL BY HERSELF and Shep is doing SO good jumping in like a "big boy". We decided to celebrate with some yummy popsicles!
Orange teeth...


And the third set of pics are from this morning. I have been so excited to get Rauly's hair cut after seeing Kayden, Avery and Lane's adorable hair cuts. At 19.5 months old, Rauly got her hair cut for the very first time. I have been prompting Chad for 2 weeks now and he finally gave in to letting his baby girl get her curls cut off. Jenny came to support him through the hair cut!! :) Danni (the hair stylists) at Williams Taber Salon is so good with Shep and Rauly. She didn't touch the front of Rauly's hair because she has a natural part in the front...we really don't have any trouble keeping it out of her eyes. So, she basically just trimmed the back and made it look thicker. As it grows out it should look healthier than it did before!

Patiently waiting for Danni to start cutting...she had a Barbie wrap on!



Voila! Beautiful girl with her cute lil' hair-cut!!

After Rauly's hair cut, we all went to see Dennis and Linda off to their Union Island Mission trip. They'll be there for a little over a week - please say a prayer for safety while they're there as well as safety on their way home.

Rauly's hair looks absolutely adorable! I love it! Lindsey, your children are beautiful. I'm glad you got your computer back.

Oh it is so cute! I love that little bob. I think Kayden has too many curls for it to be a straight bob. Rauly is such a cutie pie. Hope you are having a good weekend.
I am going with my parents so I have been packing like crazy.

Rauly looks so cute with her new haircut! How is Chad adjusting to it?

Lindsey said...

Thanks for all the compliments on Rauly's hair cut girls - I think she looks really cute too!
Jennifer- Chad is doing really good with the hair cut...he really thought it looked good once it was done but he held Shepherd the entire time she was getting it cut...I think he needed to hug something to relieve the stress!! :)

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Rauly's haircut! But your kids would look cute with anything that you do with them! Good luck on the potty training! It'll be awhile for us yet!
Oh yeah, the gym is not all it's cracked up to be. But I did get to watch almost one hour of an adult TV show while on the treadmill. At least I'll get caught up on Grey's. LOL ;)

She is the most adorable little girl! I love her hair. It's so precious! Chad, way to go!! Good job listening to Lindsey on this one. :) It turned out so great! Love, Shauri

Lane Beller said...

I love Rauly's cut! It is so cute on her. It does make the girls look older, but I love the stacked bob! :) And, since Lane didn't have cute curls, I was glad to have the stringy baby hair cut off. We miss you guys and we hope that Rauly and Lane get to meet before too long :)

I'm so glad you didn't lose anything on your computer! Oh, and Rauly's haircut is ADORABLE. I LOVE it...whose side of the family does her blonde hair come from?
Also, lovin' the potty shots with Rauly. That will be great blackmail one day! ;)

Lindsey said...

Page, Chad had platinum white hair till he was about 4 years old! Rauly's hair is more the color of her Aunt Jenny's when she was a baby...a golden blonde although Jenny's hair has darkened a lot over the years. I always wanted a blue eyed blonde haired child!!

Sarah said...

I love it! Tell Rauly I'm growing out my hair to look like hers. I'm so glad everything was ok with your hard drive. I keep thinking we need to buy one of those back up/external hard drives, but I just have a hard time splurging on stuff like that(shoes and fabric...that's another story :)). So CD's are such a good idea. I'm so glad you posted that!

Adorable haircut!

Michael and Hannah said...

Rauly's haircut looks great! Where did she get such blonde hair??? Were you a super-blonde as a baby, too?

kristy patterson said...

super cute hair cut! She is such a pretty little girl! I'm also glad you didn't lose anything on your computer! Horray for the geek squad :) Hope you are having a great week.

Oh she is absolutely gorgeous! I wish my hair looked that good naturally like Rauly's!
