yesterday we all took the leap and decided to put the diapers away for Caleb. mama’s good friend recommended a “potty training in one day” book, so he’s on the program now. yesterday went well with many successes for him, including all the stuff he can do all by himself. he is very excited and proud of himself, and we’re of course proud of him too. he really is getting big fast. we’ve still got a little ways to go, but so far so good. Alice is chomping at the bit to give it a try too, but we’re going to try to wait until Caleb’s got it down. oh and a side benefit of yesterday for me and Alice was that we spent the entire day together out of the house (so mama and Caleb could concentrate on learning), so we had a great time as just us.
here he is celebrating his new skills in his new underwear (on backwards) and with his “potty prize”…a new giraffe he named “Date” (no idea where he got that one, but it’s apparently stuck).
