42 weeks: Ruby turns 37 months

It's been a good week. The kids have not gotten sick in the last few weeks. Yay!! I started them on Vitamin D drops, and I really think that has helped boost their immunities. We just don't get a lot of sun here in the winter. Andy and I take them too, and we've all been well even with exposure to colds a few times. I sure love our kids a lot.

Ruby and I have had lots of conversations about not leaving small things around for Reid to find. Ruby has been cracking us up lately. She says and does the funniest things. When she does some kind of performance, she says, "Guys, can you clap for me? Thank you, thank you." Potty training has been frustrating. She still does not like going on the potty. She doesn't have a lot of pee pee accidents, but does have poopy ones. I know she'll get it some day, but it's been taking foreve…
