Lots of Exciting New Things

So there has been a lot going on lately in the Braley house. I will start with the most exciting of all...

*Capri WALKS! She is the exact age that Ashton was when he started walking too. She literally went from just standing and walking around furniture to walking all the way across the room. Its been 2 days now and she is pretty good already.

*Ashton starts Pre-school on May 2nd. I am excited for him. We really think it will help him with his shyness among learning lots of fun things. He will go to school 3 days a week for 2 1/2 hours. Its at the Child Lab at BYU-I. It is supposed to be a really great program and really hard to get into so we are blessed that he was able to get in.

*I joined a gym. Haha, great timing I know. Wait till I am preggo and then decide to get into shape. I am excited though. And Kurtis switched his membership so we will both be at the same gym and he can keep me motivated. Kurtis has been doing great with getting into shape and losing weight. He has lost over 25 pounds in the last few months!

*Kurtis and I went to the movies for the first time since we have been married. Yeah, so almost 5 years now. Crazy! It was really fun to get to go out on a date and leave the kids at home and in trusted hands. We went to a 10pm movie which is past my bedtime, but Kurtis told me to live a little. HAHA, I'm such an old lady.

And that is about it for now. I realized that I don't like to blog, I just like to read everyone's blogs. But I will try to do better. We will see how long that lasts. And hopefully get some pics or videos up soon of the kids and Capri walking.

Milestones....Glad vs. Sad

GLAD
My babies are growing up. Ashton is completely potty trained now which is a huge deal. Potty training is what I had been fearing for a long time. It wasn't completely awful though. We had a few struggles in the beginning but then I kind of gave up since Ashton didn't seem to be ready yet or just too stubborn. But the deed is done now and he is a happy boy and so proud of himself. Kurtis and I are of course very proud of him too and also very happy (saves us money from buying diapers and changing the darn stinky things.)

Here he is taking a potty break....he is naked cuz he had on jammies with the feet in thenas you can see in the pic below.
SAD
And here is my sweet lil Capri. 3 1/2 months old and already eating cereal. She is such a big girl that she just isnt happy after nursing her. Ashton was 5 months before he had cereal and he was completely happy with that. So I am kind of sad because feeding her isnt quite as easy as just laying her on my lap and adoring her while she eats, and this is just another reminder of how fast she is growing up.


But on a good note, she does really like her cereal and eats it pretty well.

Fixed It

My big picture is finally normal size. I am sure everyone has noticed that my pic on the top of my blog is usually enormous...well its not cuz I wanted it that way. For some reason the picture is just always giant no matter what I do to it. But finally I picked a new background and new picture and after messing with it for a while it is the right size. The only problem is that I dont know exactly what I did to get it right so if it happens to go back to extra gigantic one day I might not be able to fix it.
Now I just need to figure out some of this other blogging stuff and learn how to spruce up my blog a lil I wouldbe even happier!

Easter and updates

So this Easter seemed a lil off to me. Conference was on Easter Sunday so we didnt get to get all dressed up for church in cute new Easter outfits. Does anyone else agree with this or am I just the weird one? Also Kurtis had to work the grave shift so he wasnt up till around 3 in the afternoon which meant he missed out on watching Ashton look in his Easter basket. And the worst part was that is snowed. I have never heard of a white Easter. But it was still a GREAT Easter.

I still cant get a pic of Capri smiling...she is just too stubborn. She smiles a lot these days but everytime I have the camera out its like she doesnt even know how.

Ashton was really excited to see his Easter basket.
He got some cool stuff....jump rope, new Tag book, football cup, bouncy balls, gun, sidewalk chalk, puzzle and some other goodies!
Just a cute pic of Capri so she wasnt left out. I didnt make her an Easter basket this year cuz I think she is a lil young.
Later in the day we went to my sisters house and had a nice dinner. Then we hid some eggs and let Ashton find them. He had a good time and we had fun watching him find the eggs, shake them and then open them up to see what he had found.
On another note my sister has less then 3 weeks to go before she has her baby. I am very excited to have a new nephew and it will be fun for her to have a baby so close in age to Capri.
And on another note....I have been potty training. Sigh...............but Ashton is actually doing really well. He is even wearing underwear during the day now. So I am just hoping he keeps up the good work and keeps progressing.
OOh and one more thing, WHERE THE HECK IS SPRING? I really need it to quit snowing and let the warm sun shine.

I'm Joining In

For those of you that know me, you know that I love love to make things. Anything crafty and I'm all in...except scrapbooking, I just cant do it.
So I decided to join in with everyone else on Rexburg and make items to sell. It took a long time to find something to make that 50 other people werent already making and selling. If you live here you know what I mean.
I learned how to make these fabric flowers that are so pretty and fun. I am starting with necklaces but eventually would like to branch out to other things like headbands, pacifier clips, onesies, and shirts.
So if you like what you see, spread the word about them. I can custome make them with any colors. I am also going to have one with lace that ties around the neck instead of the beads.
Prices: $15.00 for 3 flowers or $20.00 for 5 flowers.
I'm doing a special the rest of the month buy 2 get 1 free.
Also, anyone that helps me out and puts a post on their blog about my necklaces will get one for half price!
