Day 1: Not so bad

Yesterday afternoon was not as tragic as I feared. T only had 2 accidents out of probably a dozen good potty trips. He only asked to put a diaper on once. He gets a really funny, wide-eyed look on his face when he's about to pee, so it's been fairly easy to get to the potty before let down. After his afternoon drink and snack we were on the toilet about every 10 minutes. I have to assume at some point he'll learn to hold it so he doesn't go so often? So far, no BM in the toilet, but we'll work on that one today. I'm just grateful that it's warm enought to let him run around in underwear and a T-shirt.

Strangely, the hand-washing seems to be the sticking point. He's a huge fan of the peeing and the flushing, but not so much washing his hands when he's done. I sort of get it. When you've peed 8 times in one hour, that's a lot of time spent washing hands that could be spent playing.

He also has the cutest little bum. Yesterday he turned around and looked at me and I couldn't remember what he looked like as a baby. Sad.

That is incredibly sad!! Lucky for you there are about 10,000 photos existing of him throughout all stages to help and remind you!

Speaking of photos - I told Mom I would help her maintain a Tucker scrapbook, but there haven't been any new Walgreen's albums for a bit.

Or have there been some and I'm just clueless and don't know how to find them?

Or if you're no longer doing that because you're busy with, oh say, a million other things going on in your life - that's cool, too.

Yeah ... I haven't put pictures on Walgreens in a long time. I've been putting them on facebook since very few people actually print the shots. I'll see what I can do about that before this next silly baby is born.
