So I can't even believe that summer is ending. It seems like the days fly by (at least the weekends do!!) and it will be fall before we know it. This morning's weather was just fine by me. If it could be fall all year round, I would be a happy camper!!
We spent a little time downtown a couple of weekends ago and I snapped a few shots of the boy. He loved walking around exploring and of course playing in the water fountains!
Chase got his big boy bed this week and he is just doing awesome! I think it really was time for it. He seems to really like it. The transition was a breeze and completely surprised me, as I expected our stubborn little man to be a little more difficult. But he has gone to bed relatively easy each night, sleeps later than he ever has in the past, most mornings we have had to even wake him up! I really expected him to be up and playing after we put him to bed, but he hasn't....at least not that we know of!! Hopefully that all continues!
Ready for bed
The potty issue has not been revisited yet. When we tried about a month ago, he went through 11 pairs of big boy underwear in less than 5 hours. I just got the feeling that he is not ready. I feel inadequate in this area with working with him and the sitter doesn't seem to think he is really ready either...so we feel a little lost in this area. I am sure we will try again soon though because he is getting more and more difficult with changing diapers. We try and rationally discuss that if he went pee in the potty we wouldn't have to change diapers...but yeah, not working!!
It amazes me the conversations we have with each other and how darn smart he is. The things he discovers on a daily basis and reports back to us is just amazing. Lately, he has been on this kick where he is noticing "noises" around the house, on TV or outside. We hear "what dat noithe?" about 50 times a day (his pronunciation of S's is pretty cute!!) now and he is so inquisitive. His next favorite question is "what is it?" when he fully knows what ever it is that he is asking about!! So then I have to ask him what it is and he tells me....what a turkey. He loves for us to record him singing or talking and then wants to watch the playback over and over. His expressions watching himself are so funny...he really gets a kick out of himself!!
His favorite things right now are transformers, monster trucks, blocks and sports. He loves to throw the football, kick the soccer ball and try and hit the baseball. Daddy even has him asking to watch Sportscenter in the mornings. Poor kid doesn't have a chance!!
Last weekend, Famous and I went with friends to the winery to celebrate my birthday. We enjoyed sitting outside and chatting and then decided to go play mini golf at Turkey Creek. We had a lot of fun...except for getting eaten alive by the mosquitos...it was terrible!
