Once were we going through our first obstacle on the course I was wondering why I recommended this activity.
The woman who's terrified of heights is walking across logs strung 20 feet up in the air that sway with every move she makes. Sweet.
I would have given up but once I got to the next platform the only way to get down was to go back and there was no way I was walking across the logs again. NO WAY!
So we pressed on. Oh and Jed was having a ball, except the part where he had to wait for slow poke (a.k.a. me).
Then we came to this. Yeah, I almost cried. My wonderful husband though, coached and encouraged me across. He's the best!
Finally we came to the first zip line which I dont have any pictures of. Jed did take video but I will not be sharing it for 2 reasons. 1. Despite multiple attempts to tuck my shirt into the harness to keep it from riding up it still went up, waaaayyy up and I'm not about to share that online. 2. (as if reason # 1 isnt reason enough) My behavior "pre-zipping" is completely erratic and embarrassing.

Done with that one, what's next, some Lewis? Piper? Maybe even Ramsey's latest on fiances?
Anyway, I had forgotten about my overly ambitious attempt to potty train Kane, a month after Ford was born. What was I thinking?!
I gave potty training another shot recently and it didnt go well. Kane understands potty training but he just doesnt care about being successful at it yet. Add to that my limitations in helping him when I'm feeding Ford, having to shuttle everyone too and from school so he has to be in a diaper during that time and the fact that he's still a little to short to get on the potty by himself and we're throwing in the towel on this one for now!
Ok, well, I'm off to change another poopy diaper.

Captain Diaper Baby!
Together they're an unstopable mess making, hilarious, sometimes destructive, yet wanting to be helpful team.
He can run faster than any other 2 year old with only one sock on.
Super Sun Man can kick the air with surprisingly little height and..
has the raddest dance moves.
This duo has been driving their mother crazy since 2008.

Oh, hold on, maybe its not so bad. Kind of cozy even.
As for my opinion, I'm torn. The ease of use is lacking however I didn't get to practice putting it on much. I've heard once you get the hang of it, it gets better.
My back however loved this thing! Usually even with the nicest carrier or sling my shoulders begin aching after a while but I was able to walk all over town with Ford in the Moby and felt nothing in my shoulders. My lower back bore all the weight which was much better! I was a bit sore but since my first pregnancy that happens whenever I walk/stand for long periods of time. I couldn't tell if the Moby exasperated it or not which is actually a good sign!
Finally, Joy's thoughts on the matter.

Like Evan said, he's a snuggly little guy. He loves to be held and he loves to sleep. He sleeps more than any of the other boys ever did at this age but I'm certainly not complaining!
Probably the best part for Jed and I, though, was the time spent in Target a few weeks ago trying out all the toys to find a toy with all the following criteria:
-Lots o' buttons
-No off switch
-Really hard to get the batteries out
-Did I mention the loudest toy possible?
We got a lot of weird looks as we played with toys and laughed hysterically but it was worth it.
Really getting into it.
Really getting into those cupcakes.
Taking a moment for presents!
Evan and Spiderman have a love/hate relationship, the latter comes out when Spiderman is hording candy in his... chest?.... bust?... hmm... I dont know how exactly to end that sentence.
Really getting into Pinata time.
Yo, Jon, you know this is a 3 year old's party, right?
Just kidding with ya, Jonny, please dont come after me with that bat.
Candy exits Spiderman's innards= Mission accomplished!
Sweet Sofe, the odd girl out.
Its ok, she's got gum.
"Aunt Laine, I know it looks like candy but when I chew it, its gum. No, really its gum, not candy, watch. "
While I watched Sofie chew, the boys drove off in the John Deere with their loot.
Thanks for turning 3 Blake!
Love, Uncle Jed, Aunt Laine, Evan, Seth, Kane & Ford
