Little Zealand is just about sitting up on his own. He's doing it for 8 seconds but Zac and I have decided it doesn't officially count until he does it on his own for 10 seconds.
As of today, it is summer and I already have had a ton of fun with them in the sun and a ton of sunny pictures that captured most of it. Here is one series of pictures I took of Luke this weekend. You can see in the first picture that I just called his name. I told him to spray himself. Like a good little boy, he listened to his mommy, sprayed himself right in the face and followed to throw the hose down. He ran staight over to me and the final picture is of his sweet little face drenched.

I had an exciting moment with Luke on Saturday. We came downstairs after he woke up around 6:30am (did I mention Zealand has been sleeping through the night for a week now - aaaah!) and I took off his diaper and his pants. Asked him if he had to pee pee in the potty and he didn't really act like it so we left it at that. I went into the kitchen to get him a sippy of water and he ran in from the living room and was like, "mama, pee pee" and i went into the living room and in the potty...pee pee! He did it all on his own and I gotta mention his aim is getting better. Ready for another pee pee story? So on Sunday, he ripped his diaper off and pee peed without me even suggesting it. We're so excited. Like I said a couple of weeks ago, we're not going to push him into it, at least not until he's 2. But if he's happy to go, than I say go! And he can say "go go go" :)
Mommy and daddy have been having fun too. We took the boys out for Mexican the other night, all dressed up in their overalls. I used my work camera, a sweet Canon, and tried to get a family shot of us. We're also loving the warm weather over here! We just got a dragon pool and I did blow it up myself. Luke is not afraid, as he'll dive in head first. We've been putting Zealand in his bathtub in the shade which he seems to enjoy and Luke even likes to crawl in with him from time to time. Gotta tell you...it's tricky getting suntan lotion on a toddler. He's not a fan, but it must be done. And he doesn't understand bribery yet.
We hope you all are enjoying the weather too, wherever you are!
