Updates on Bethany and Jacob

I don't blame you if you don't believe me, but this girl has been using the big girl potty lately! She came to me a few days ago and said she needed to potty. She has pretended to potty before with her clothes on, but this time I decided to let her really try on the little potty. And she pooped. (!!!) She has tee-teeed (is that a word?) once a day since then. I am flabbergasted. We'll see how this progresses; I'm not really making any promises or anything.
Another funny thing: yesterday morning when I went to get B up, she had ALL her clothes off. No pajamas, no diaper. She was holding her diaper out to me saying, "Di-pee, di-pee. Momma, di-pee." As you can tell from this pic, she often thinks she is very funny (and she's right!).
Jacob is loving school, his new Christmas toys, and life in general. He went to the doctor yesterday, and he's 42 inches and 40 pounds. He's average in weight but in the 90th percentile in height. He did great with his three immunization shots and was VERY relieved to hear that he doesn't need any more of those until he turns 11. Yeah for Jacob! (This pic is before school on pancake and pajama day. All the kids wear their favorite pajamas and get to have pancakes for lunch.)
(Update on Naomi to come soon)

Lily has been going to the potty as well. Must be a 3rd child thing. Either that, or they are both geniuses!
Hope to see you guys soon. I'd love to sit and talk with you about how homeschooling is going. I'm considering schooling Zoe at home again next year.
