Tim’s last Beauty and The Beast performance was last Saturday night. He did awesome! I really enjoyed watching him. I was able to see it both Saturday night performances. I’m so thankful Mom and I went that first Saturday because Cienna was not feeling well the second Saturday and I spent 2/3 of the play with her in the lobby. Cedric went to the 2nd Saturday and was enthralled. I wasn’t sure he would be interested for the entire 2-1/2 hour play but he was. Whenever Tim left the stage he would ask, “Daddy go?” During intermission, Grammy took him down to look in the orchestra pit and the first thing he saw was a plate of cookies on the piano. He pointed and said, “Cookies, cookie,” and the musicians handed him up one. It was cute. I had fun being introduced to several of Tim’s fellow cast members. Tim made such a good impression on them. They kept telling, “Your husband is the nicest guy!”, etc. *proud to be his wife* Tim is so talented and loves doing this sort of thing. It was really tough with all the play practices but it was worth it so that Tim could enjoy himself doing this. He’ll probably do another one in a couple years. He’s hoping for the King and I and to play the king or Aladin in which he’d want to be the jeanie. :)
We have gotten serious about potty training Cedric this past week. He’s only wearing diapers when he sleeps and we’re not confident enough yet to go in public without them. We’re almost there though! He is doing great! He was definitely ready. He was showing signs of being ready and I had to admit to myself that the only reason he wasn’t potty trained was because I wasn’t putting the effort into it. We had consciously decided to wait to get serious about potty training until after Cienna arrived, and since she’s been here two months now, we figured it was high time to do it. He’s having a bit of trouble forgetting he doesn’t have a diaper on when he wears just pants and undies, but he is totally accident free when he goes pant-less around the house. He’s even gone #2 in the potty chair, which can be a big deal for toddlers. He’s growing so fast!
Cienna is doing great. She is still a very content baby which I’m SOOOO thankful for. We’ve switched to cloth diapers except when we go in public and at night. I’m really enjoying it. It’s just very satisfying knowing that I’m reducing garbage, saving money, and reducing her exposure to chemicals in paper diapers.
I am doing well. Working on losing the pregnancy weight. I’m also in real need of a hobby or time of my own or something. I think I may try to go tanning and drink a mocha with a good book once a week by myself. That sounds nice….
Here are some pictures I’ve accumulated. I’ll post a couple of Tim in the play when I get some online.
Cedric asked me to put "Baby Doll" on his back so he could be like Momma and Cienna. :)
Isn't comparison so cute? Cedric is 9 months in the first picture and 2 years old in the second.
