Still buying diapers for 2!

I'm really writing this to find out if my child is normal or not!

Zac will be 4 in less than a month now and he still wears an overnight diaper to bed. He's fine at nap time and he's been doing great during the day for about a year and half now so no complaints there!
I realized the other day that he is almost 4 and still wearing a diaper so we started talking to him about wearing underwear to bed as well. He thought that was a great idea. I know he's not quite ready because his nightime diaper is still fairly wet. Zac tends to be a little lazy though and if you don't push him to do certain things, he just won't. So I thought if he wet his bed and felt it a couple of times, he would learn.
Last night was our first try and I fully expected to be changing his bed in the middle of the night. He woke up about 6:30 and came to the top of the stairs to call us. His bed was wet but when we changed it, we realized that it was almost dry. He hadn't JUST peed the bed, it had happened some time during the night and he never bothered to get up!!! I find this kind of troubling because it shoots my theory of "letting him feel it to learn" out the window.
We may keep trying it for a few days to see if he catches on but maybe he's just truly not ready at almost 4.....

Random Funny Pics

Tyler has started sitting in his booster seat instead of the high chair. I'm not sure yet if this is a good thing because it seems like he now feeds more to the dog than he does to himself! He seems to like it however!

Zac all of a sudden wants me to "spike" his hair every morning! He started out with the faux-hawk and now he likes an over all spike!
Here is the only picture I could get them to sort of sit still for wearing their St. Patrick's Day t-shirts. They look thrilled I know!

When your sons feels sorry for you!

We've had rain here for about 4 days straight (I know that really doesn't sound like a lot) but when you're used to sunny day after sunny day you take that for granted!  The kids and the dog were crawling out of their skin to get outside and as a result, I was also going crazy!
So...the rain finally let up yesterday and we went to a park to feed the birds.  Tyler loves animals and points up to the birds all the time so I figured he'd love it!
The ducks were sweet but then these huge, ugly geese came over and they didn't feel like waiting for us to get the bread out of the bag or our hands for that matter!  The kids were a little scared of the geese - not that I blame them!  They still had fun though. I didn't get any pics of the geese because the battery in my camera died! 

Zac also said something really funny yesterday.  Tom and I were playing a game on wii called Dr. Mario.  It's probably one of the only games that I am better at than Tom.  He is very competitive so he loves to keep trying to beat me anyway!  So we were playing when Zac came down from his nap. Zac sat there watching for a while and finally he said "Daddy, after this can we play something easier for  you"?
He was trying to make his Daddy feel better about getting his butt kicked by his Mommy!

Tori's Pony Birthday Party

Zac's very best friend Tori had her 4th birthday party this morning. They celebrated at a preschool that offers pony parties. They give the kids pony rides and pony cart rides and there are animals to pet.

Here is Cowboy Zac

Tyler LOVED the bunny!

Tyler's first pony ride!
Zac is an old pro - this is his third horse back riding experience!

Growing Up

This is what Zac is working on at school now. He can trace his whole name and he can write his nickname without the tracing pages too!

First Stitches (of many I'm sure)!

Tom had to travel to Miami yesterday so I took the boys to Gatti Town Pizza in Frisco along with Zac's best friend Tori and her family.  We hadn't seen each other in a while so it was nice to finally get together and catch up. It was also funny how Zac and Tori took right off playing as though no time had gone by at all!

Here is Zac and Tori on a Dancing machine

Tyler fell off the side of the above machine and caught his forehead on the sharp corner of a metal electrical box! Scared the heck out of me of course - and always when Tom isn't around! I am SO thankful that Jacki and Tommy offered to keep Zac while I headed to the ER with Ty!

I rushed him to Acute Kids and they put some liquid sutures on the gash. I was worried about his skull but they weren't concerned because he didn't loose consciousness, seem disoriented or vomit.

Here he is after his trip the doctor with a bandage over it to keep him from "bumping" it again!

All seems well though, he is still smiling!
