In my family, we have a tradition where each family member must decorate a signature egg with their name on it. Later, when we turn the eggs into deviled eggs for Easter dinner, we smash the eggs against each other to determine who's egg is superior. I put my "Coco" egg up against Aaron's egg and got crushed.

Sometimes Aaron will play a game with Hank where Aaron pretends like he is crying (making a boo-hoo-hoo sound) to lure Hank into close range, and then Aaron will grab him and tickle him or kiss him. Hank picked up on the game quickly and he likes to make the fake cry sound because its so pathetic sounding that it always make me laugh. Well, last night before bed I was reading Hank a book about barn yard animals and asking him what sound each animal makes. When we got to the page with the owl on it, I couldn't figure out why Hank kept making the fake crying noise. Then I realized that Hank thinks that owls cry! We always tell him that owls make a hoot-hoot-hoo noise and so when I asked him what sound the owl makes, he started to cry, boo-hoo-hoo, like an owl. I love that boy.

My optimistic goal is to have Hank potty trained by September, but at the rate we're going, its not looking good. I bought Hank a potty seat last week and we've been practicing sitting on it--trying to get Hank to just make friends with the potty. Usually Hank will tell me right after he does his job, but so far I haven't been able to catch him in the act yet. Let the fun begin!
