Baby, It's Cold Outside

Yes, it’s freezing cold. Literally. Thursday here in OKC, the high was close to 75 degrees…by yesterday afternoon it was about 25 degrees. I just checked and it is 24 degrees right now! Needless to say, we’re cold even with the heater & our socks on!

We were all home by 1:00 yesterday due to the ice storm. Since we knew we’d be stuck here at least for the next 24 to 36 hours(since the storm is getting worse), we went to Target this morning after breakfast! It was nice to get out even if it was for only 45 minutes round trip!

While at Target, we decided to make the plunge and buy Jax a potty. Wow… not sure I’m ready for that! I know it’s early & I’m not planning to start full-on training, but I thought it would be “fun” for him to start sitting on the potty. For the past few months, he’s been pretty obsessed with the potty, especially when I’m in there! He’s also been telling me when he’s “poo-poo” because he wants me to change his diaper. He’s not a fan of poop in his pants, I can’t blame him there!!

Ok, on to a more pleasant topic. Jaxon has been calling Joey “Buddy” instead of “daddy”…kind of cute & funny!

Last night Jaxon & I shared some hot chocolate

Jax & mommy laying around

Update: I started this post Saturday afternoon, it’s now Sunday morning! Church was cancelled today because of the ice storm. It’s still coming down out there. I’m glad I’m off tomorrow for MlK day so that I don’t have to mess with getting out.

Last night Jax was pretty amused by the new potty. Here’s proof!



Have a warm day!!!

I almost forgot! It’s been national de-lurking week, so if you’ve been reading but not commenting….I’d love to know who you are!

  7. I agree about the de-lurking. I have been trying to be so good about commenting on other people’s blogs because I now realize how important it is. It’s nice to know that people are actually reading and enjoying it. Jax is so cute. I hope that the potty training is a good experience for you. You have the idea to start introducing it if he’s showing some interest. Just keep it fun! You’re a great mom. Love ya.JB
