Ethan and his new rocking horse

Ethan LOVED his rocking horse we got from the sweet dreams baby botique in holland today! They are going out of business and have some really good deals on baby furnature! Bummer we don't know the gender of baby for a few more weeks... (april 13 we have our ultrasound) because i think i would have bought out the store!

Potty training and 17 weeks!

Well, i decieded that Ethan is about ready to begin learning to use the toilet. I did exactly what the book "potty training in less than a day" instructed, and Ethan LOVED it! I bought him all kinds of goodies that he rarely gets, m&m's, chips, pop, etc. and i borrowed a "peeing" doll from a friend, and we began our "potty training day" first thing this morning. I started out putting his potty in the kitchen ( accidents are a little easier to clean up on the wood floor).
Ethan tought the dolly how to use the potty, which he thought was pretty cool! Dolly would actually pee in the pot! SO COOL. If dolly had an accident in her pants, she would not recieve a treat, but if she stayed dry Ethan would get to feed her a chip or candy! which i would let him eat if only if his underpants were dry....He now says YUCK diapers are for BABIES!!!! longest day of my life, but it paid off! Ethan went pee pee about 5 times, and pooped in the potty twice! I am absoloutly thrilled with him, and he is quite proud of himself too! He has this new found attitude that his is a "big boy" now so he must do absoloutly everything by himself!!! which takes FOREVER to do even the smallest things like put on his underwear or socks!
I cannot complain though, he did fabulous, so much better than i had anticipated!

Potty training day!
