So we've been working on potty training Jackson since he turned 2. He's done pretty good with "#1" but "#2" has been a bit tricky but he's making improvements. The past couple of weeks he's made it all day at school in the same pull up and the past two days he's pooped in the potty with ZERO accidents-I never would have imagined poop to be this exciting. Prizes have been handed out, phone calls have been made and parties have been thrown. THIS IS A HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT THAT MUST BE SHARED. The past couple of nights he has woken up dry!! PARTY PARTY!! The joy of knowing that soon I will only have one child in "diapers" is fabulous. I really can't take much of the credit for this-the daycare has been wonderful and my husband is pretty much in charge of Jackson in the afternoons until I get home with Cooper and get supper cooked. BUT STILL...FABULOUS! So not only am I excited about not having to change Jackson's poopy pull ups soon I will no longer have to buy the pull ups...BUT...all this means the take over has begun. There are now TWO men in my life who refuse to put the lid down. Never mind the burping and the passing gas and walking around with their hand in their pants that I can over look but the toilet seat being left up or not being put up at all MAKES ME CRAZY!! So in the middle of the night if you hear a scream in the distance don't fear that is just me falling in the toilet!!

Once again, I suck at this. I do mean well but I log on and get lost in everyone else's updates and then don't have time to do my own b/c the others are so interesting :)

Anywho, Cooper's been really sick lately. We had two hospital stays in December. His white count has been out of wack and we are trying to figure out what is going on. Dr. Shann is sending us to Dr. Atkins, an immunologist in Jackson, to try & determine what's up with his immune system. We suspect that he either has an over active immune system or defect which causes his body to be over aggressive with every little illness. Once we see the immunologist we will then go to Batson for further tests.

On a lighter note, we had a fabulous Christmas. This was the first year Jackson really got into it and he LOVES presents and "baby claus" (translation: Santa Claus) we have a fear that he may have Santa and Baby Jesus confused. Cooper was more interested in the paper and boxes so therefore Jackson took claim to all of the presents in the house. They had a blast. We enjoyed our time with our families and are looking for things to settle down some.

My fabulous husband bought me an awesome camera for christmas but forgot the memory card so my christmas memories were captured on my not so great camera but I do have a lot of new photos of the boys to share. However, I have not had the time to upload them. I will share pics from our attempt at christmas card shots. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
