anyway, Caleb had a big milestone yesterday: he did his business on the potty for the first time! we havent been actively pursuing potty training — just giving him the opportunity if he wants it. he was complaining about his tummy hurting and we were thinking he hadnt gone in a while, so I asked if he wanted to go on the potty and he did it! he was a little surprised I think. so he got his M&Ms and the celebratory phone calls to the grandparents. so we’ll see how fast this clicks for him. chocolate is a big motivator. his personality is one that wants to get things right, so hopefully the learning process wont be too traumatic. Alice meanwhile wants to be in on all the action, so she took a turn a short while later. I’m guessing they’ll both be out of diapers by the end of the year, but we’ll see.
as the cliche goes, both of our babies are growing up so fast.
