Last night, we attended Tyler's conferences. He's still doing well. He is quite the avid reader, and we make frequent trips to the library to keep him stocked. We have to keep an eye on him, or he will stay up late reading. Right now he's really into Big Nate, Bad Kitty, (Captain Underpants and Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, but he has read them all), the Time Warp Trio, and the Lemony Snicket series...

And, a little update on our Little Lady...

So tonight we decided to straighten Aubrey's hair, just for see what she looked like. Whoa. Who is that girl? She thinks she looks like her cousin, Jillian.

A couple of nights ago, I was telling her that I was brushing the sugar bugs off of her teeth. (The pediatric dentist's terminology). She seemed very intrigued. After she had brushed, she asked for milk. I said that she needed to stick with water so that the sugar bugs can't hurt her teeth. Apparently, that stuck because tonight she was scared to drink milk tonight until all 3 of us reassured her that she'd be fine.

A few days after her birthday, we started potty training. She is doing great. Thanks, chocolate, for your magical powers!! She will ask to go, even if she is already in bed (and has a diaper on) or if she wakes in the middle of the night.

Tonight, I did a little "interview" with her to remember her perspective at this age...

What is your name?  "Aubwey"
How old are you? "Fwee" (3)
What is your mom's name? "Metally"
What does your mom do during the day? "You phone"
What is your dad's name? "Wayne"
What does your dad do during the day? "Eating"
What is your favorite color? "Blue" (She's been consistent with this for a loooooooong time)
What is your favorite thing to eat? "Rice" (She did not touch her rice at dinner tonight)
What is something you don't like to eat? "Salami" (She devours salami and begged for it while waiting on dinner tonight)
Who are your friends? "I don't know" (What!?! She is always talking about her friends)
What is your favorite song? "Rockabye Baby"
Can you sing it for me? "No, Tyler's singing it!"
What is your brother's name? "Tyler."
What does Tyler do during the day? "Watching Daddy. He's just really family. He's Grandpa."

And that concludes our interview.
