No. No. No. Daddy undies...

So, potty training with Quenton is a completely different ball game than it was with Addison. Quenton will go pee-pee on the potty almost every single time that you put him on the potty. The only problem...only once in the last 3 or 4 weeks that he has been doing this will he tell me on his own that he actually needs to go. So, we are still in pull-ups/diapers.

Aside from that...he REFUSES to wear big boy undies. I'm not sure why? I have this terrible feeling that it is because his poor little thighs are kind of chunky, so it bothers him. So, yesterday, I tried to put his big boy undies on, since we were going to be around the house for the rest of the day. He said, "no! no! no! Daddy undies!" Very adamant, and almost frustrated with me. So, since they don't make boxers for toddlers...ANYWHERE, I found boxer briefs today at Target. He was so excited! Huge grin on his face, and absolutely refused to take them off for nap time. We'll see how that goes...

Beach bums...

We were lucky enough to be able to go down to Carillon Beach last week with my mother-in-law, sister and brother-in-law and their kids, and their sister and brother-in-law. So, all in all, there was 6 adults and 8 children under 6!!!! Wow! The kids had an absolute blast! The house was wonderful, and so was the company! Thank you again Mary Margaret and Justin for inviting us down!!!!

Happy Belated Birthday, Quenton!!!!

So, once again...long time, no post. I keep promising myself I'll get better...but no luck. So, I'm going to stop pressuring myself...I'll post as much as I can. So, here is Quenton's 2nd Birthday party! Even if it is over a month late...

He had just a few friends over, and had an absolute blast. Nana and Papi were able to come up also. The little man is obsessed with Elmo...

I CANNOT believe he already has 2 years under his belt. He is such a happy little man, and absolutely ADORES his big sister, and kisses his baby sister goodnight every night! He does, however have a little bit of a temper, and is in full swing of the terrible two's!

He had his 2 year checkup, and we found out that he is in the 90th percentile for height at 36.5 inches, and the 95th percentile for weight at 33.5 lbs. No surpise to us! He's a hefty little monkey. The doctor even told us to lower his milk to 2% rather than whole milk. Too funny. But, he is happy and healthy!

Movin' on up...

to the big boy bed!!!

Well, I finally took the pediatrician's advice and changed Quenton's crib into a toddler bed! I was so sad. Especially considering the week had been very emotional already...with my dad having bypass surgery on Tuesday, and registering my sweet girl for Kindergarten on Wednesday. What a week!

Quenton got out of his bed about 4 times at the beginning of his nap, and I kept standing at the door waiting for him to come open it. Every time, each a little more aggressively than the last, I told Quenton to get back in his bed before he got in trouble. Then, that was it. It only took about 10 minutes, and he was out! Now, to see if he continues on this path...
