I put Collin in underwear over the weekend. He knew he was going to the bathroom but he would not let us know before he actually went. So we did have some messes to clean up. He would never go when I would put him on the potty, but it never failed that he would go about 10-15 minutes later. I put him in pull-ups when we were away from home. Then this morning, before he woke up, I went in and woke him up and put him on the potty. He was not happy to be woke up and taken to the brightly lit bathroom. So he was crabby for about 5 minutes. Then I let him stand up on the stool in front of the potty and played with a squirt toy. Finally, he went! Yipee!!! Hopefully it will just get better. I made a very big deal of it. Jumped up and down and clapped and told him how proud I was of him. We'll see what happens next.

Potty Training-Advise Appreciated!

So, I've been waiting for that "miraculous sign" that Collin is ready to start potty training. It came...he was at church last night and he told the teacher he needed to tee-tee so she sat him on the potty and he did! Yipee!! If that's not a sign, I don't know what is! :) So, I've instructed Mrs. Jackie to put him on the potty several times a day all this week and I'm going to put him in pull-ups this weekend and set a timer for every 30 minutes. That's my plan so far. Any advice is welcome!

Addi Rolled Over!

Addison rolled over for the first time at Mrs. Jackie's house yesterday. I'm so excited for her! She proved the doctor wrong...she's not so big that it will take her longer. She even did it 10 days earlier than Collin! :) Us women just pick up on things faster! *LOL* She's eating her cereal very well, although it does not seem to make her stay fuller longer. That child stays hungry!

5 Years...seems like much longer!

Mine and Garner's five year anniversary is this Friday, August 10th. It seems like it's been longer than that. Not in a bad way. We started dating in December of 1998 so Garner has been a part of my life for a long time now. This December it will be a total of 9 years. My mom passed away when I was 10, so Garner has almost known me as long as my own mother did. He certainly knows me better than she did. It's interesting how your relationship changes as time passes. You get more comfortable, sometimes too comfortable. Some of the things you loved most about that person when you were dating are now some of the things that drive you crazy now that you are married. Kids certainly change things as well as all other events that life just throws at you. I found a "Happy Anniversary" card today for Garner. He never reads this blog so it won't ruin the surprise. It talks about working together, weathering the storms, realizing that marriage takes work, and then reminding the recipieient that when "I" pledged my life to "you", I meant forever and I still do. That's love. You may not always have the butterflies. You weather the ups and downs, but love is not about a bunch of gushy feelings. Feelings fade. Love is about commitment FOREVER and that's what mine and Garner's marriage is about. We certainly face all the "storms" like everyone else and I have to admit that I have those moments when I don't "like" Garner, but we are in this forever, no matter what. God put us together, and that we shall be until death do us part.
