Here's the current update on Little B. (notice how I say little, that's because her baby brother is basically the same size as her!) She's potty trained officially - I have it dated February 20th with no more accidents! We never really did the diaper at nap or bed time either. I wanted to just go for it - no pull ups, and it worked! This post from Facebook was on March 15th 2013 - for those of you who want to potty train your little ones, i bet this will help :) Bella didn't get this kind of treatment, we rewarded her with stickers & candy. I'm happy to say that she is COMPLETELY DONE with diapers, even at nap and bedtime! HAPPY MOMMY!...and I am, a VERY happy mommy.
favorite foods...mac & cheese, strawberries, carrots & ranch, pasta, fruit snacks (pronounced 'snoot snacks'), turkey, french fries, apples, oranges...any fruit, that girl is all over it.
favorite TV shows...Bubble Guppies (she's basically obsessed), Madagascar (all of them: 1,2 &3 - oh and the Christmas ones)
favorite color...orange, she'll even tell you that.
clothes...little thing is still in 2T tops, and can fit her 18-24 mo. shorts.
she loves...riding her 'bike' (her big wheel), her mini mouse car, blowing bubbles, swimming at nana & pop pop's pool, going to the beach (we took her to the bay a couple times in the last couple months and she loves it!)
Ethan is growing like a weed! He's so big now! At his last doctor's appointment I want to say that he was 25 pounds (little B is only 27!) He's catching up! He has TWO teeth now, is sleeping through the night (and occasionally will wake up for a bottle). He's officially on the move and crawling, he LOVES food. His first word was da-da (boo!) I tried over and over again to push the momma, and look where it gets me! ha! Here's a list of firsts for the big guy...

favorite foods - pear, apricot, carrot, apple, bananas!
favorite toys - Sophie the giraffe (and cell phones, remotes -things he cannot have, but as soon as he sees them - he starts crawling like a maniac towards them)
loves to pull his sister's hair - she hates that.
will give kisses - only to the lucky people, daddy usually gets them every time he asks for it.
loves to 'dance' while he's sitting on the floor and a toy starts to make a sound
absolutely LOVES when his sister plays 'peek-a-boo' with him - he cracks up, and it usually leads to both of them having the hiccups.
loves bath time with Bella (daddy does bath every night) mommy is a little jealous :) all I know is that I am so incredibly lucky to have these two amazing children - and that they love each other to pieces!!
