Ethan Has A Visitor!

February 28th, 2008

Today Ethan had a visitor come to play with him. She even wore a matching snowman outfit in pink. Ethan wasn’t quite sure what to make of his little playmate. Here’s what I think Ethan might have been saying to himself:


Wooh! Who’s this cutie on the blanket next to me?


Hum… She must like me enough to put her arm around me!


Oh, wait… she’s just pulling on my ear! Ow, ow, ow!


Ouch! That was one good punch in the jaw. Rejection! I guess Mr. Whaley was right about me staying away from his daughter!!!

Our First Totally Dry Day!

February 25th, 2008

It’s amazing what excites me now that I am a mom. Today Patrick was dry the entire day, with absolutely NO accidents! I am just thrilled at how things have just suddenly clicked in his head. I can’t decide how this came about… did he just decide he was ready, or was it the 3 potty videos we had rented from the library? Or was it the rewards chart I made, where he gets a sticker every time he uses the potty, and when he fills up an entire row he gets a little toy? Was it the brightly colored, super soft minky training pants that I ordered off Or maybe it was a combination of all these things all at once? I honestly don’t know, but it is beginning to feel really nice to not have to change Patrick during the day anymore!

Potty Training At Last!

February 22nd, 2008

I just wanted to let everyone know that today Patrick went poop in the potty THREE times! In addition, he only had one accident today. And I’m not even pushing him the way I did this summer!!!

Could it be possible that he’s finally getting it? I think so!!!!

Why We Don’t Post Videos of Ethan

February 22nd, 2008

I found a little embroidery design you can buy that says, “I coo, I poo, That’s all that I can do”. Well, Ethan can do a few more things than that: he can smile, he can eat, he can sleep, and he can cry. He did laugh once, but I haven’t been able to get him to do it again. So, until he gets a little bigger, this is the typical Ethan video:

(The noise in the background is mostly Sammy!)

Granted, we think it’s cute, but I have to admit, it isn’t the most exciting video you can watch on the web. So… one of these days we’ll start posting more videos of Ethan, but for now I’m afraid our readers will have to content themselves to Patrick and Sammy. They’re silly enough as it is :o).

Silly, Silly Boys

February 20th, 2008

Here are a couple videos from today!

In this one, Sammy has learned how to fold his hands to pray all by himself!

In this one, Patrick and Sammy are showing the funny things they like to do during dinnertime

Silly, silly boys!!!

Oh, and before I forget, today was special because PATRICK WENT POOPOO IN THE POTTY ALL BY HIMSELF! I DIDN’T HAVE TO ASK HIM, HE JUST WENT! I hope this starts a trend. I’ve tried not to be too pushy with the potty training thing because I feel like it hinders our progress. I’ve tried to let Patrick go at his own pace, but I’m starting to get anxious to get him out of diapers. One of these days we’ll get it :o).
