Three days after Deacon's 3rd birthday and totally on a whim, we started potty training.  I've finally realized that I am not a planner.  Deacon got a diaper rash on Wednesday evening & I decided to leave his diaper off & go from there.  On Thursday when he woke up, we started all over again & have been going strong.  I'm pretty proud of him.  He's doing so well.  Still working on getting the {#2} part, but he can only hold it in so long. ;)  It's been an adventure.  He's eaten more M&M's in the past week than he's had his whole life!  I don't care what anybody says, bribery works...well, at least for our son. :)

I probably wouldn't want my photo like this either :)

Nora has been a great help in the training process.

Yep, we even eat our breakfast on here too.

We do some of this too when the waiting gets long.


A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Deacon's 3rd birthday.  It seems unreal to think that we have a 3 year old.  Brent & I decided this year, that we would start a new tradition on each of the kids birthday.  They get to choose dinner out and a fun thing to do and it will be a date with just Daddy & Mommy.  This is something I was very excited to share with Deacon, because I feel like he gets pushed aside too many times because Nora is at a very time consuming age of, "don't touch that," "don't do that," etc....  You mom's of 1 year olds' understand. :)  Deacon chose Fazolis for dinner & an evening at Jumpy's.  We all had so much fun celebrating with Deacon!

Horrible picture, but had to show some of the "jumpy" fun.
