Ten on Tuesday

1. Lucas's ear is healing nicely. I'm just really hoping that it doesn't happen again before surgery. I'll know how to handle it though. The third time was an easy prediction, so the fourth time I think I'll just prescribe the antibiotics myself.

2. I still don't believe that Lucas is potty-trained. He's had a great week. Yay for not buying any more diapers!

3. This week's forecast is rain, rain and more rain. I'm ready for spring. I want to play outside with my kid.

4. Last weekend we somehow managed to fit in an Easter egg hunt amidst the rain. I don't think we'll be so lucky this weekend.

5. Now that Lucas is potty-trained, I'm able to send him to "summer camp" at his preschool! He'll be going twice a week, and I think it will be a good way to keep up with his school routine and give him some extra language opportunities!

6. Lucas has really been into drawing and coloring lately. I'm really impressed with his attention to detail and how he tries to color in the lines. He's also showing some interest in learning to write his name.

7. It's so fun to watch Lucas pick up incidental language. My favorite lately is how he starts his sentences with "well..."

8. Lucas makes things up all the time. My mom and I have decided that we have to compare the stories he tells us, because we never know if he's telling us the truth. I think he just has a wild imagination.

9. Lucas ate really well for dinner tonight. He ate salmon, couscous, steamed broccoli & half of an apple. AND he cleaned his plate. When he was done, he got down, stood on his tiptoes and said, "Look, I'm tall now. I'm big like you, daddy." What a great moment.

10. Just when I tell someone how easily Lucas goes to bed, and how he sleeps through the night, he makes a liar out of me. The past few nights have been really difficult trying to get him to go to sleep. This too shall pass, I hope.

Yay for being potty trained!! Jordan is well on his way, with a few minor setbacks and bumps in the road. He really wants to go to New York with his grandparents and brother and sister tis summer, so that is the motivating factor.
It is great not buying diapers, now if I could just get rid of the pull-ups at night.

That is so awesome he is potty trained - its soooo much easier. With my girls, while they started training earlier, it was a long process. However with my youngest son, it was literally overnight. I would love to send Ava to a couple half day summer camps but she's not quite fully trained so I didn't register her.
We've had nothing but rain too. It so depressing.
Yes, love the incidental language. Ava's is lately "oh my God" - I have to fix that....fast.

A HUGE hooray for potty trained! I still feel weird leaving the house without the backpack that was used as a diaper bag for so very long! We're still using pull-ups for Nolan at night, but they're mostly dry in the mornings. Matt is an entirely different story (he is 5 and STILL has accidents every day).

I am SO ready for warm spring to arrive. It snowed again today. SO depressing!
