It has happened. Our cute, roly poly Baby has been replaced with a rambunctious toddler. It’s so sad, but exciting at the same time.
Showing off his belly to be “gotten”
Pretty proud to be standing on the stump while camping.
Aaron has gone from not saying much, to speaking the strangest of words. When asked to say “Daddy” he says “Mama” with a grin on his face. He says, “teeth” “cheese” “ball” and “Steve!” (from Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, the monkey’s name is Steve and he says it a lot). He nods yes and no in answer to our questions and does a lot of pointing as well.
But, the most exciting thing in “Aaron’s world” is his use of the potty. About a month ago we started putting him on the potty when we noticed he was about to poop. That went on pretty regularly for about a week but then we quit because he didn’t seem too interested. This week he walked over to his toilet and pulled at his pants. I took his diaper and pants off and he sat down and actually went. This has happened about four times since then, even with dry diapers as well (instead of a full diaper and then pee in the toilet). I’m super excited about this because he actually seems ready to train. I’m ready. We’ve been buying diapers for four years!
So, our little baby is now on his way to becoming a big boy. I’m sad. I miss my baby!!
