Where has this week gone?!

I've been playing a lot of "catch-up" on office this week, plus I babysat on Monday, and will again tomorrow. Looks like the babysitting schedule is going to be pretty solid for the next month and a half or so, which is good for the pocket book, not so good for the blogging time. I will try to keep this maintained with some regularity, but part of the "reprioritizing" I did last week was to decide that, for the most part, I can either scrapbook or blog in a day (and by "blog", I mean read my friend's blogs, as well as a lengthy post on my own), but try not to do both. Sigh. Such are the decisions we must make.

Anyway, here is a picture of Jabin enjoying a snack on my office floor yesterday while I was working. Like most babies his age, he has a talent for making a mess!

Also, while taking the photos off my camera to retrieve that shot, I came across a few other gems. While giving Jabin his first haircut a few weeks ago, we let Jude have the camera. Of the dozens of photos he took, I actually had to giggle at this one: We've been letting Noah run around "bum-naked" for the most part these days, to try and encourage him to remember to use the toilet. If he isn't wearing anything, he will use the toilet. Put underpants or a Pull-Up on, though, and it is just so much easier to stay where you are. However, he will "save" his Number Twos until he has a Pull-Up on, which is when we are out or at night. As a result, 95% of the time when he poops now, it is when we are out! SO FRUSTRATING! I have been encouraged this week, though--TWICE while he was wearing a Pull-Up, he decided to poop on the potty. YAAAAY!

  1. He'll get it mom, hang in there! Cutie boy by the way!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement, Beth! Happy Friday!

  3. Yup! Cute pics. Jabin is growing up, I tells ya!

  4. That is how I potty trained my two boys. I potty trained them both at 2. I let them run around like that and they got it in no time. Number 2's weren't a problem either. I caught them in the act and put them on the toilet. After that they were potty trained within a month. My 2 year old has been diaper free for nearly a year now :)

  5. Colleen - Waaah! I know! (Pouts.)

    Sarah - Can I just be jealous of you for a sec? We started potty training Noah sometime last March. Yep. It's been almost a year. My first one was so much easier. Sigh.
