well, it's a start at least...

OK, so he didn't actually GO potty...but he did ask to sit on the toilet and that in itself is a pretty major step. He sat there for quite a long while (long enough to read a book, hehe) and now knows the word "penis." Excellent. Also, please note the helmet on the floor...must keep our treasures close. Let it be noted that I probably never would have thought to take a picture like this but after seeing this layout by Moon, I had to. (And if you're not familiar with her work, check it ALL out because it ALL rocks.)

In other news...Jake


...out his butt"

while in the tub tonight.

Life with boys...never dull. So glad he's getting more verbal these days.


  1. Yay for Jake!!! What a big boy. I do NOT look forward to going through the whole potty-training thing again. Although, "they" say that boys are easier to train. Fingers crossed;)

  2. Love that picture Erica! Too funny! Looks like he's well on his way to being a man...minus the footstool! :)

    LOVE that picture! Great POV, and the edge is wonderful! Is it an element? Tell me where to get it 'casue i want it. The 'burp' story is classic boy. Love it.


  7. Too freakin hilarious. Toilet training is in our near future....any tips? Should we buy him a helmet?? LOL

  8. LOL, love that picture!! Way to go for your little man!! We just finished that whole potty training thing, it was an interesting experience to say the least!! You just gotta love boys!!

  9. Oh Erica, we are VERY fond of the word at our house. We say it everywhere, and often quite loudly. Oh, the fun has JUST begun. Did I tell you Conner peed his carseat in the 5 minute trip home from SCHOOL yesterday? Some day, you'll be wishin' for a diaper.

  10. Adorable photo!!! Cole marvels at Harper's ability to burp...from either end.... ; )

    Moon's potty layout is one of my faves of hers.. isn't that pic amazing? Wish I would have thought of it too.. actually, I have several pics of my guys sitting on the throne, just not excellent ones like hers or yours. ;-) She is so inspiring! Good boy, Jake! :)

    I think I'm the same way when I'm doing the duty. :D

    My hubby just came in and asked what I was laughing about. Your crackin' me up! We are going through the same thing with Madi on the potty, but she always has to bring in her princess book! Too cute!

    Oh my GOSH!!! That is just an amazing photo! I checked out her layout too and I *just* did a layout with almost the same exact design! How weird is THAT? But hers is way cooler though.
