It's Potty Time!

Well, it's news that only a few select family members may care to hear about, but in our house, it's very big news! This morning, Charlie went "poo poo" on the potty. He was so excited, he kept standing up and looking at it! Kallyn, the little 2 year old I keep during the work week, ran into the bathroom and exclaimed, "Oh, Charlie, I am so proud of you!" He was even more excited when he got to "fush" it down the big potty. Of course, he received a little M&M as a reward, but the big reward for this first big potty feat was a trip to Target with mommy and daddy to pick out a new Matchbox car. Daddy had a LITTLE bit of influence and Charlie brought home a yellow 84 GT Ferrari. Way to go Charlie!

Halloween and Pumpkin Fun

Here are some pictures from the Halloween/Pumpkin Season. Charlie loved pumpkins so much, we visited the pumpkin patch twice. He LOVED his first Halloween and really LOVED the Trick-or-treating part. He was so thrilled when people kept giving him candy and tried his best to eat more than he ever has at mealtime. After a few pieces, we had to cut him off from his supply, so he tried to swipe some favorites from the bucket of candy we were passing out. He was such a cute little monkey! Thank you Grandma Roy for making this year's costume...what a treat!
