He's Got Potty Power

As of Monday morning this boy is diaper free.
By lunch he had it.
Day 1 sticker chart.

By Day 2 the excitement and newness of this supposed "big boy" activity had worn off but he never turned back. He would bust out in songs from this lovely little number, which we watched several times on Monday. Whatever gets the job done.
I'm all about the "cold turkey", "rip the band aid", "short term pain for long term gain" approach, so first thing in the morning he threw away his own diapers and we're not looking back. Not even at night time. Our laundry bill will prove that next month, I'm sure. But today he woke up dry, and I am rewarding myself with a shower.

It's a comparison. Sue me.

Yes, I realize every child is different. Yes, I realize it is good to be an individual. Yes, I love both my children for their differences.

But...I'm going to compare them anyway.

This is what Henson was doing two years ago today.

His brother, however... refuses to roll over during playtime. Instead he chooses to do it in his bed ONLY. And when he is asleep. Then it wakes him up. At 5:30am. Then I go in and turn him over. Then he turns back over. Then I turn him back over. Then he retaliates again. You get it.

I put him on the floor every time he is awake and nada. He is a week younger than Henson was this day two years ago. I'll give him a week before I take sides.

My "Not So Little" Baby

"97% in height, 90% in weight...I'm big. What. It happened, okay?"

The hair is also 4 months.

**I would also like to add, that you hit 4 months and decided that was the first day that you would wake up talking, instead of crying. So, I cried instead.

You also think it's super neat to roll over, but only in your bed during sleep times. I sneak in and roll you back over. We repeat this about 5 times until you finally give up.
Rolling over is super neat, but doing it during play time is even neater.
