Joseph (3 1/2) has made huge big boy strides just since the New Year that I'm so excited about. I am ecstatic to announce that he is now potty-trained! Halelujah! Without giving you the gruesome details, this is something Joseph has been resisting for a long time. This picture was taken September 16, 2007. You may remember my post in August complaining about about the race car that was incentive for Joseph to pee in the potty that had sat there for months. In September, Joseph peed in the potty once or twice and earned it, and that was the end of that. So frustrating! When we got home from our holiday Oregon trip a week ago, I told him when he woke up that he wasn't going to wear diapers anymore. We had a couple of accidents, and that was it! Now a week later, he tells me, "I feel like I need to do a pee pee, Mommy!" Hooray! This was Darren's idea months ago, but I was scared to do it, and didn't want to do it with the holiday craziness and traveling. So, yes honey, you were right. (Those are his three favorite little words.) I'm just so excited, and Joseph is very proud of himself too.
On top of that, Joseph is also now a Sunbeam and graduated from Nursery at church. I can't believe it. It was so sad to see his teacher take his name and picture off the wall to give to me. I'm gonna be a wreck when he goes to school! He ended up loving his first day of Primary, even though he made Darren stay with him for the first half hour. My little boy is growing up! I know, I'm pathetic. Thanks for letting me have my moment.
