Potty Training

My son finally decided yesterday that he want to potty train. He was about to pee in my bedroom floor when I asked him if you need to use the potty. His answer "yea" and he actually went. So every 30 minutes I took him to the potty and he caught on pretty well. He even took it upon himself to use the potty with no help.

Later that night we went out to dinner and he kept telling us that he needed to use the potty. He said one word "potty" After dinner we went to Walmart to pick up some stuff to help Melanie with her eczema (& of course something for Junior because we were so proud) and he actually asked to use the potty again. I could not have been prouder!

Soon we will not need diapers/pull-ups! :]

Update...Trying to start blogging.

My kiddos have been just growing bigger and becoming so smart! My little princess is 3 1/2 years old, and she will be turning 4 at the end of October...I just can't believe she will be 4. My little guy just turned 2 in June and boy of boy is he in the terrible two's. Throwing tantrums, not listening and getting into everything that he could possibly get into.

I guess I will try to end this blog with my visit to the WIC office yesterday. Usually it's a fight to get my children to even entertain the idea of behaving in a office or at a store. One of them has to always act out. They did so good yesterday and I was so proud of them! We went in and signed in...went at sat down...they stopped listening to me a couple of times but not so bad. We got called back and they actually behaved while I confirmed all of my information. Went back and sat down waiting to be called my the nutritionist and all was good. The best part was when they had to stand on the scale. Now Melanie never stands on the scale without a fight. She actually walked into the room and asked to stand on the scale. I was SHOCKED! She stood up there long enough for the scale to beep and she let the lady check her height. Junior, of course, does everything that his big sister does and we had no problem. But when the lady needed to check their iron is was a different story. Junior had no problem but Melanie took a couple of minute to convince that the lady was not going to hurt her. She got up there and let the lady prick her finger. This outing with my kiddos was such a good experience and I will never forget it.

Melanie is 37 1/2 lbs and 38 3/4 inches long.
Junior is 31 1/2 lbs and 34 1/2 inches long.
I my growing babies!
