The Lake and The Potty

Yes the lake is a potty to some but that's not what I'm discussing here, this is 2 different topics folks! =)

First, this weekend we went to Canyon Lake and I just love that lake! The water is clear and the whole lake is so beautiful! It was a great weekend spent with our family and the kids had a blast! Keaton loved riding in the boat and once we stopped to swim for a while he was nervous to jump in. He kept saying, "No, boat ride!". Finally we threw him in the water and then he was so happy and swam forever! We went through this on the tube too! Daddy was going to take him tubing and he just wanted to stay on the boat but once he finally got on the tube, he had a great time with daddy!! I was in the back of the boat watching and taking pictures and Keaton would wave and blow me kisses from the tube! Melt my heart! =)
My Little Stud Muffin!

He's in that tube, I promise!

On Sunday once we were back home I was changing his diaper and as I was putting on the clean one he said, "No, deuce!". I said, "OK, let's go to the potty!". He jumped up giggling and excitedly ran to the bathroom. When I got there he was laughing and jumping up and down in front of the toilet. I put him on it and sure enough the kid pooped! I called downstairs and Daddy and Mo came up to see his deuce! =) We were all clapping and he had the biggest smile on his face and thought the attention was so cool! I had really planned on postponing potty training because I've heard boys take a long time to potty train and usually aren't until they're 3 but he seems interested and started all of this on his own so we'll just go with it! I'm well aware he could do great for a while and then completely give up but we'll see!

Yesterday I bought him a frog potty and he was so thrilled to sit on it. He just sits on it and tries and tries to do something even if he obviously doesn't have to! I never told him it was a frog, I just said it was his potty and the first time he sat on it he looked between his legs, then looked up at me and said, "Frog!". I said, "Yeah! Good job, that's a frog!". Then he looked at me again and said, "Ribbit!". We both just started laughing, it was so cute! This little guy entertains me everyday! I love Mommyhood! =)
