Potty Training

Aug 15, 2018

On the evening of March 2, 2018, we began

Operation: Potty Training

Owen had been showing undeniable signs of readiness for a bit so we blocked out a weekend in the calendar and locked ourselves in the nursery with his little pottypee pads (under the potty for near misses), cleaning supplies, musical book with his favorite characters and treat jar (filled with M-M's, which he'd never had and only received for going potty, to make it special) for the weekend using the Oh Crap potty training method as our guide.

While we were all a bit frazzled by the end long weekend (so.many.messes!) and even at times now, when we have setbacks and as we work toward more training milestones, I can strongly attest not changing a toddlers poppy diaper has been worth all the stress and gray hairs.

Asher: Month, Two

Smiles, coo's, head control - Oh My!

Biggest Milestone: Head control. Homeboy loves to explore his surroundings. When Mark consoles him they walk laps around the house, and up/down the stairs, taking everything in. Pretty sure you are trying to rollover too. 

Hardest Challenge:  Baby wearing during the summer. Which is a catch-22 because yes to 24/7 snuggles, but man by the outings end, we are both drenched in sweat.  

Most Memorable Moment: Repeated diaper explosions all.over.mama.  

Favorite Photo:

Longest Stretch of Sleep: "slept" thru the night. We think. Both parents have no actual account of the date, obviously because -we were blissfully asleep. Currently, after your evening meltdown (don't call/visit between 7p-9p), you have been sleeping 4-6 hours which we'll happily accept.

Nailed It

During Asher's newborn shoot I failed to remember having a photo taken in these darling crocheted bunny ears, so while on maternity leave I took matters into my own hands.

It is evident I do not have the patience for nuance.
