I'm a big boy now...

I'm going pee on the potty multiple times a day now, but still like to go poo poo in my pull-up. They try to take me potty before or after meals, before/after nap, and before bed. Sometimes I even ask to go to the potty. Mommy & Daddy are hoping that I get the most of potty training down before my baby brother, Micah, arrives in April. That's right...I'm a big bubby! I'm already in a big boy bed (twin) so that Micah can use my toddler bed that daddy needs to convert back to a crib. Mamaw helped me put together my new room that I will share with Micah. She even made me a quilt for my new bed that I call my mamaw nap and I have to sleep with it every night. Well, I'm getting a cold Mommy & Daddy think so hopefully I'll be better soon. Night night!

It's been a while since I"ve been on here. I'm two and I can be a little booger sometimes, but most of the time I'm still a very sweet boy. I go to daycare now and love it! I've made lots of friends! I will start potty training soon...again. The first time I got really sick with a stomach bug and didn't want to sit on the potty anymore. I recently got to pick out my own potty seat that has Elmo bath characters on it. This potty seat goes right on the toilet. I will start potty training on Nov. 2nd. Mommy hears that 2 years and 3 months is the magical age for potty training...so we will see about it. Hopefully Mommy and Daddy will post pics of me really soon. I've gotten so big!

sick & potty training.

I've been really sick lately. I had Roseola & a couple ear infections. I just recently got over a nasty bug that caused me to have a fever and throwing up. It wasn't pretty. I slept a lot. I felt better the next day, but then Mommy got it. She's been sick with the bug for a couple days now.

On a more positive note, I've been working on using the potty. Mommy started me training on the potty on Mon., Feb. 16, 2009. By Thur. I was peeing on the potty and Friday I was pooping and peeing on the potty. Mommy gives me 1 M&M for peeing on the potty and 2 M&M's for pooping on the potty. Mommy only had the peanut M&M's, so she gave me those. They are yummy! I love the crunch it makes. I didn't have a reaction to the peanuts, so that was good.

Well, I'm off to take a nap. Night night!

UPDATE

So, I realize that it's been forever since I've updated, but I actually have updated. The new update is on my blog about Brayden...so if you wanna check out updates & new pics on the B-man just go to my blog which is http://godluvsu2.blogspot.com Brayden is crawling (army w/ occasional knees), pulling himself up, walking holding onto the couch while being on the couch, holding his own bottle, trying to master the sippy cup but still prefers the bottle, still saying his usual words but is putting the words together to items such as Brayden knows I'm mama, and Mark is dada, and he lets us know he's hungry by saying ba ba. He's into everything and going everywhere eve places he knows are no-no's. He's a little over 10mo. & I'm starting to have to discipline. I gave him three chances yesterday...he knows not to play with the floor register, 'cause they are yucky! I told him no with a little smack on hand and redirection the 1st & 2nd time also with both times saying look at mama and he refused-normally he's pretty good about looking at me the 1st time I say it. Anyway, the 3rd time I stopped him before he got over there just like I did the 2nd time as well, said Brayden look at mama, he didn't so I grabbed his face to look at me which he hates anyone to force him to do anything that he doesn't want to do - I guess typical kid. So, he looked at me and i stearnly said no-no! & redirected. So, as soon as he started crawling over there again...when he got close I grabbed his face to look at him said no-no you need to listen to mama and I said no so since nothing else is working you will get a time out! I took him to his room, turned on the lights so he knew it wasn't night-night time, sat him in a sitting position in his crib and said Brayden you didn't listen to mama when she said no so you have to sit in here for a few minutes to think about what you did. (as if he can do that..but just gearing up for the future, ya know.) Then I walked out leaving the door opened a big crack and walked out. Of course he started crying for a bit and stopped like a min. later. I finished putting up the dishes, then Mark came home and I told him that his son was in time out. Then we went and got him and told him that we love him, played, then fed him..ya know all the normal parenting stuff. Isn't funny that when our kids are in trouble they are all of a sudden the other parents child, and yet when they are doing awesome and someone asks who's child is this you proudly claim that it is yours! Why do we do that? I don't know, but I'm sure guilty! The disciplining right now is really hard for me...it's like nothing works. Although, the time out did...he didn't go back there the rest of the night. So, maybe I'll have to do that for now. FYI - I'm not opposed to spanking...it just seems that TO is working better for Brayden right now.
Well, I gotta go...don't forget to check out my blog for pics & updates of the B-man! Oh, and we are going on a vacation kinda... We are going out to PA & RI for vacation and dropping off Mark at Grad school for a 2 weeks while we go camping in Mark's parents camper with his parents. I'm looking forward to it, but don't know how the whole keeping him on a schedule will work but we'll see soon enough!
