Potty duty...

What an exciting week it has been already. Little P is quickly learning, and I am running around behind him trying to keep up, at least a little bit.

Cleaning has been quite a challenge for a while, he loves to pull things out but I think he may have a tiny bit of his dad's perfectionism (this is good and bad). I mean as a grown up, being married to a perfectionist gets me a clean car, help with the laundry and everything tended to outside. Sometimes too well, all this takes time that could be spent with me you know ;) But as a baby it means random things put in random places. He LOVES to carry things around, and then put them away, and then secretly laughs at me while I search for the hidden item like a crazy lady. UGH...that is the frustrating part. Now to add to this, my little "angel" has learned to flush the commode.

BAD NEWS! Because the commode is one of his favorite places to put things away. Now it can be gone forever, permanently. Add this to his other favorite place, the trash can. Awesome.

Another new lesson learned, how to open the screen to get to the backyard. And just today he mastered walking over the screen door threshold. It's a little bit of a step down, but that doesn't stop him anymore. And he can open the door to the garage. I don't know how I'm going to keep him inside anymore.

Don't get me wrong, I am NOT complaining. I don't ever want to complain because I have a smart, curious little guy. It's just more of a blessing and keeps me on my toes :)
Oh yeah, my boys matched on Sunday, super cute!!
