quick update.

stuff is cah-razy around here right now, so i'll make it short and sweet.

last week, we took the week off of most of our activities and focused on...POTTY TRAINING! atticus seemed like he might be ready to try, so as kind of a spur-of-the-moment thing, we gave it a go.  and he has done AWESOME.  after he figured out what was going on, and we went and got some new undies for him, he didn't have a wet accident for two days.  after that, we had a few spotty days, but we're back on track - we have very few accidents now and he even poops in the potty!

i'm so proud of him, and so glad he was ready.  i was prepared to wait until he was close to three to even try it, since i'd heard boys take longer to train, and i did NOT want to push him before he was ready. but he was showing signs of at least being prepared to try (waking up dry, not pooping anywhere but at home).  and he apparently was ready, because he's doing great.

[my favorite part of potty training has been a) how much he loves to watch the 'elmo's potty time' video we borrowed from the willises, and b) the fact that he insists on watching the whole movie while sitting barebutt on his potty.]

on top of all that excitement, i got the flu and have been under the weather for the last few days.

on top of that, our close date is coming quickly (may 2) and i've been working on packing.  we're showing our apartment tonight, so our fingers are crossed that they like it and want to move in before the regular august turnover date so that we can get out of our lease early.

so that's what's up over here.

hurray for atticus!! do you have any advice for PT? We've been on the PT boat, for awhile, not hardcore, but it's been here and there. I think the biggest factor is having a 2-year old and a 1-year old! I can't give full attention to both during the day when I would really like to PT the little dude, then little miss needs something! :o)
