Bryce continues to grow and change everyday. He has 6 teeth and 4 more coming in. He's starting to say 2-3 word phrases like "where da da go?", "more yogurt please", "hold you", "pee pee potty". Speaking of potty, we bought one the other day and we're going to start a little potty training. I'm sure he just heard Chase say it a million times, so he says it, but I really think he is ready to poop in the potty. Sorry if that was too much for you, but he knows when he has to go so I'm going to try and get him to go somewhere other than his diaper. He also says "change diaper" and it is too cute. There are a bunch of other phrases he uses, but I didn't want to bore you.
Bryce is still a picky eater. I've been trying to do better with vegetables this week, but it doesn't seem to be working. We tried carrots and lima beans this week and neither went over very well. He loves to eat fruit and he is starting to eat a little more meat now that he likes chicken, hamburgers, and hot dogs (even though that doesn't really count as meat).
Bryce enjoys coloring on the driveway with chalk and anytime he sees a pen or a crayon he says "B". He loves to write a B for Bryce (which is just 3 straight lines, ha!). He can even tell you that M is for Macy and D is for da da. Sometimes he can even point out a B when he sees one. Bryce has been counting 1, 2, 5 for a while. He gave up on the five and stops at 2. I have really been working on 3. The other day he had an 8 in his hand from his foam mat and I said 8, and he said 9, 10. He's starting to grasp a concept of numbers. We couldn't be more thrilled with his development. It is so fun watching him change and grow everyday. I am loving that I get to experience it even more now that I am home for the summer.

My personal favorites are the Seahorse Trinkets. They also come in a coconut (white) color and I think they are super cute.
Bryce was excited to read the Spot book on the way home. We don't have any Spot books at home, but Kelly must have had some because as soon as he saw the book on the shelf, he yelled Spot. Guess we'll have to get some of our own.

Jason and I are still going strong on our Biggest Loser diet. I lost 1.6 pounds last week and Jason lost .6 pounds. I have lost 7.8 of the 8 pounds I wanted to lose. Once I get to my first goal weight, I have 10 pounds left that I have gained and lost since high school. I'm hoping to get back to the gym when school is out and tone up some areas rather than lose anymore weight. My biggest fear about the gym is dropping Bryce off at the Kid Zone. I know he's going to scream bloody murder the first time, but hopefully he'll get used to it because I need to get our money's worth.
In other news, it looks like the sale of the old house is a "no-go" with the current buyers. It doesn't look like the new well, testing, and inspections will be done in time for the June 30 closing our buyers needed in order to get the tax credit. As of right now, we are fairly certain we will be putting the house back on the market July 1. I worry about how the front yard will "show" once they dig up my flower bed/yard to dig a new well. My hope is that the house won't sit on the market as long this time as it did last time. We're just going to take it one day at time from here.
I hope to post a hula hoop video of Bryce soon.

Can you see Bryce peeking through? He loves it when you come up to the opening and scare him while he is crawling through the tunnel.
