Pretty dang cute!

The Nuggs is officially walking and standing up on her own now! Her crawling is at an all time low, and soon it will seem non-existent. I am so proud of her every time I see her stand up! She concentrates so hard on it and it usually takes her a few tries, but it is pretty dang cute every time! She has also started to pick up on more of the signs I've been trying to teach her since she was 9 months old. Her learning more signs has helped curb some of her tantrums, but she definitely has her moments where nothing can calm that girl down. She is a very stubborn girl and can be VERY hard to handle sometimes, but she's cute, so we will keep her for a little bit longer ;).

Slowly but surely...

Well it finally seems as though winter is winding down here in ND! Ok, maybe it wouldn't seem that way if you looked outside and still saw piles of snow and cloudy skies, but it's happening. Slowly but surely the snow is melting and the temperature has been in the 30's for over a week now. The downfall to this weather change is that it feels as though spring is so close, but I know it is still so long till the girls and I can actually enjoy the outdoors.
On another note, Kaitlyn has finally started walking. No, not consistently yet, but she's trying. I guess that too, will be a slowly but surely situation. As well as Mack's potty training. We are attempting for the second time around and looking for more consistent results. It seems to be going well. We implemented a sticker chart that she gets to add a sticker to every time she goes potty and she LOVES it! In fact, she tried to go potty for 20 straight minutes just so she could get another sticker. I think the chart maybe worked a little too well. But then through the night she definitely made use of her diaper, so we still have a long way to go.
