Trained



In the midst of terrible threes, we decided to potty train Andrew. For three days we did little but eat, drink, and go potty. I was so concerned that he would fight it (because that is all we have been doing these days) but . . .HE was a CHAMP!

I think this was the thing he needed . . . It certainly helped him out of his tantrum stage! I'll be willing to bet he felt like needed something that he was in control of . . . for once. This has turned out to be more than I could have hoped for! I now have a potty-trained little boy, and my Andrew back. Plus, he's asking to take naps again!!! Welcome back sweetie. I have missed you!

I have realized by looking at your blog tonight how much Andrew has grown up!!! It's amazing. His face looks so much older since the pictures from his first day of preschool. Fun catching up on all of your pictures. :)

He looks just like Michael in this picture!

It is fun to read all your new posts :-)
