More Big Steps...this time for the Big Boys

Potty training has been an adventure, as usual. Every time David gets up from a nap/nighttime, it takes some serious convincing to change from diaper to underpants. Sometimes he flat out refuses with a screaming fit. And this is from a child who doesn't throw many screaming fits. He just REALLY doesn't want to be bothered with going to the potty. But today, once I got him in underpants, he's had a really good day, with lots of successes and only one accident. And he's even telling me when he has to go. Which makes me think that maybe, just maybe, this will stick. I'm hoping to avoid the back and forth for months that was so frustrating last time. We're taking advantage of the snow/ice days to stay home and focus on that potty.

And Luke is on the move. He loves to bounce and stand up and belly crawl. I do apologize for the number of Luke-focused videos lately, but these are the kinds of things that are just cute to see on video.

You'll also hear Luke's family song. We have a song for each of the kids that we sing with their name in it (here's David's, which came from "Daisy, Daisy," & Katy's). If you recognize the tune and know the original version, you may question my nurturing skills. (I didn't plan it, it just came out!)

That bouncy one makes me EXHAUSTED just watching it. 1,000 jumping jackets! YOWEE!

All he needs on the crawling thing is the knees and he's there.

He's like a little break dancer! So fun! I loved the stories and the videos. I'm being so lazy about potty training Michael and think we probably won't hit it too hard until summer...

So cute...I like that David hams it up a little while he is singing :)
