Silly Boy!

This morning Hank went pee-pee in the potty for the very first time! I think Hank has been ready to potty train for the past few months but, lazy me, I haven't had the motivation/time to do the training. Hank must have been tired of waiting around for me to initiate the potty training, because this morning, he did it all by himself! HOORAY! As I was getting Max into the bathtub, Hank brought out his potty seat and potty book. I helped him take off his PJs and sit on the potty because I figured as long as he was occupied I would be able to give Max a bath in peace. A minute later, Hank says, "Silly Boy" (you have to be there to hear it--its hilarious how he says it). I turn to ask him whats the matter and he says that he went pee-pee in the potty! I checked, sure enough, he did it! Unfortunately, Max was still laying helplessly in the tub so I couldn't fully celebrate his accomplishment, but as soon as we were all dressed we went straight to the grocery store and bought Hank an M&M cookie and a jar full of M&Ms to use as bribes for future potty time. So far, we haven't had a repeat occurence, but I'm hoping it wasn't just a fluke.

Go Hank! I want to be done with diapers with Ally- but she is showing no signs of being ready. It would be nice to get rid of that cost each month.
