2 year pics

I took Alex to get his 2 year pictures done at Forrest Park about 4 weeks ago. A friend of mine from high school, Chera Meyer, just started a photography business here in STL. Here is the link to her facebook business page. These were taken along the Great Basin; the large fountain area in front of the Art Museum.

Here are a few of the images.

Stop...Potty Time

We officially took the plunge last week and started potty training. We had a bit of a rough start, but things are going well. I realized the, 'pull up', training pants are a bit of a joke. They are a glorified diaper. The only good use I can see is being in the car all day. I switched to the Gerber cotton training pants and they make a world of difference. Plus, I save a bunch of $$. Alex really likes his Sticker Chart and he has already earned a prize. He is the only kid in his Gymboree class that is being potty trained, and I kinda like that ;) The only downside is that I had to pack away all his snap crotch shirts and outfits for summer and fall. Some stuff still had tags on it. Guess they will saved for next time...

Parental Supervision

Mom and Dad were here for the week. Dad had a few appointments to take care of, so they stayed here and took care of some stuff. Friday, we braved Grant's Farm. Here are some pictures.
Grant's Farm pictures here.

It was quite the experience. Pushing and pulling Dad in a wheelchair up and down the hills was more of a workout then Curves could EVER give you. We did have a good time, but I will say that the website for Grant's Farm is quite deceiving. Many of the pictures/activites on their site are not available to the general public and the place really isn't handicapped accessible. With that said, for $11 bucks it wasn't bad.
