I am Honored! Thank You!

The other day I was nominated for the Niceness Award by Lindsay over at my paint splattered
life. I was really touched that she thought enough of me to nominate me for this award. It is proof positive that niceness pays off. Do unto other's... There are time when you think no one is paying attention, in fact there is always someone and this person is equally as great if not greater. So to keep the niceness flowin' I too will nominate :

Ladies remember to pay it forward nominate people who you think are worthy!

Thanx L

I am 20 Months Old!

I can not believe that in 4 months, I will have a 2year old! I really have been enjoying the moment that I am able to share with him. He is truly funny and I think at times he knows it. Just the other day we were cracking each other up and about what? I don't know. He is running (literally) from one end of the house to the next! He is trues becoming a handful! He is headstrong like both of his parents and fights for the important things like more juice, diaper changes and staying up! I love that he is absolutely fearless! Ans his imagination is beginning to develop. He is spinning around and moving around the house like a airplane. He also has a temper on him, when he gets frustrated he will pinch your clothes and tap his head on just about anything. Sometimes it is hard not to laugh!

He is feeding himself, but would rather you do it! I bought him a new toothbrush, cuz he really tore up the last one.. I decided to get him an buzzing one, like mine since he got his lil paws on it. He loves it! Our biggest problem now is that Miles keeps getting his chunkie lil legs caught in the rails of his crib! Its really bad because he gets wedged between the bars and sometimes will leave marks on his leg! Yikes! Is a Toddler bed in our future? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

He is outgrowing all of his clothes! He's already rockin' 24mos -2T.

Question for you all, what is up with the screaming for all occasions? Just pure screams.

Well I must warn you that this post contains words like poo, pee, stinkie and if you have serious issues about bodily functions please leave now!

Now that I've gotten that taken care of, I have been really thinking about trying Miles out on his new potty. The potty has had no real purpose but to take the cushy seat part and chew on it. *yuck!* I figured that I would begin this process on Monday and well Monday has come and gone. Today we were out most of the day and I figured that if I was gonna do anything that I would need to do it soon because Miles was going to bed in 2.5 hrs. After I gave him his dinner he was enjoying a nightcap of watered down cran apple juice. So here is what happened:

Me: Hey buddy are you going to pee-pee in your potty
Miles: Slurp ahhh!

*yesterday we bought Elmo's Potty Time as recommended By Jon and Lara, thanx.

Me: Elmo went to the Potty!
Miles: Slurp slurp aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Me: Let's try.

Well I take him out of his highchair and take off his diaper and place him on the potty. I told him that he had to sit on the potty and makes sure that his penis was tucked in. Yes people I use correct terminology! So we sit and sit and I didn't hear any pee-pee, but I was slapped in the face with king of stinkie's! Oh crap! ( no pun intended, screw that it's intended!) I am going crazy inside because my boy just poopied in the potty! No pee-pee. WARNING, It was massive!
The genius that I am I didn't put any water in the pot beforehand so I was tapping and banging on the toilet to get it out! Yuck!

But Hooray! The first time he was a champ! Oh I am so proud But I didn't go to crazy, cuz my kid is smart and if you make abig deal about some new accomplishment, you won't see it again for months. So begins the journey of potty training. My goal is that he goes into this with no pressure from me! Wish me luck!
