ok, so I didnt realize how long it has been since I had added to my blog! So I thought maybe I should catch everyone up on what's been going on here lately! I wish I had something exciting to report..but I dont. We have been doing a lot of berry picking. Mostly "blues" as riley calls them, because theya re his favorite. I did pick some marionberries and boysenberries and made some jam. I cannot wait for apple season to make homemade applesauce to can! We have been trying to put some money aside so we can redo our deck and just overall trying to enojoy the beautiful summer weather! Awhile back dave and I picked up some $4.00 potty chairs at ikea for riley to play with. he started putting his doggies on it and carrying it around the house this last week he decided he wanted to sit on it, so I have been letting him..and he has even peed a few times! then we flush it away as he says bye bye pee pee. I am by no means trying to potty train, but if he wants to sit on his potty then great! He also has lots of new words..my favorite are when he says bless you after you sneeze and brings you a tissue, and the other night he said Love you. it was soo great! I have pictures, but I need to find my camera so I will have to post them later. I will try to not wait so long between posts!
