  1. 9. You're moving? Where to?
    13. I have a recipe for black bean soup (in the slow cooker) if you'd like it. Tried it for the first time last night with rave reviews.
    16. So the three-day potty training didn't work?
    22. I could give you the name of a great Dr. but you'd have to come to KC to see her...

    Great post!

  2. We just want a bigger place. When we're a family of four, we won't fit here anymore. =)
    I would love the recipe!
    I think Gabe was too little. We're still working on it. He poops in the potty at least once a day.
    I have a Dr. picked out, we just have to write a letter to the clinic saying we want him. My Dr. just moved to Wichita. =(
