Pre Graham Goals...

Just a little booty...You may be wondering why this picture is a pre Graham goal..Well, let me explain...
The goal was pottytraining. It is now, I'd like to say, checked off the list! He is doing wonderful!!! He keeps the same underwear on now all day long- well, most days. The booty picture was taken several weeks back...This is what I saw for many many days....He was to take off underwear that had gotten wet and put them in the sink and then go put on dry underwear if he had an accident. Well, there were times he forgot the dry underwear part...It was amazing how many times I have seen this little bottom in the last month!
If you look close, here's the booty again. J had gotten "T" time for a reward for something..I walked out of the room, came back...and this is what I saw. He was probably 10 inches from the screen, totally naked. Nice, J!

Second Goal: Hudson in big boy bed in J's room...Well, as you can tell, the start was a bit crazy...Their room was totally clean and picked up before bedtime. This was the very first night. We started bedtime routine at 7:15...we had a surprise for Hudson, so it took a little while longer for his to open it and for us to play with it a bit...about 7:45, we left room. They didn't fuss much, but instead were interestingly quiet with a few laughs inbetween... we went in later and saw the above wonder they were quiet....Almost every toy in their closet was out, every book, every was a complete mess.

I freaked out when I saw this...I truly thought for a moment there was a roach. I remember thinking there was no way that a mess of toys and books could bring roaches in!! Then I quickly realized it was just a flashcard. whew!

Solution #1: tie closet doors more toys
Solution #2: untighten the light bulbs...they can't turn the lights on now

The next morning we found them in the same bed! Now, they are doing awesome. It's still not perfected:-) but it's doing great! We found Hudson on the floor one morning too. But now he seems to enjoy his own big boy bed.
I had prayed and planned for this transition for a while and I'm so thankful it is working out so well. I have to admit I was a bit nervous. Since the transition started, David and I both noticed that Hudson has just seemed to grow up! He's going to be a big brother soon!!

Emily, these pictures & stories are too cute! Miss hanging out & hearing your little boy stories. Somehow they remind me of when I grew up & all the fun times that come with being little & surrounded by boys. Thanks for sharing!
