So, we are in the middle of potty training Jack. He does well some days, and not so well on other days. Today, he decided to throw a fit for 30 minutes because he didn't want to go potty, and then he followed me into Piper's room and proceeded to poop on the floor - twice. Then, after I got through telling him how disappointed I was with his decision, he walked over to me and gave me a hug. He told me he was sad. I asked him why. He said, "Because you were mad." I would love to say that I instantly forgave him, but I didn't. What I was happy about was that he understood that his actions cause others to have feelings too and that he was getting pretty good about explaining his feelings to me. I was very happy about his improved communication skills. Anyway, the potty training will come, eventually.
I had to post this picture. This is Jack and Zeke (his cousin) at Lagoon. They love to go to Lagoon together. This summer we bought Lagoon Season passes. We have gone to Lagoon at least 5 times. Jack loves to ride all the kiddie rides with Zeke and also with Miles (another cousin).
Jack and Piper are making a train out of some storage bins. Jack can make a train out of anything and Piper loves to play along.
Okay, I cannot believe that we have two thumb suckers in the family. Come to find out, Dad was a thumb sucker, also. I think Piper started sucking hers because she saw Jack do it and she probably thought that sucking your thumb was just what kids did when they were bored.
This is a picture of our family at the scenic overlook at Bear Lake. I love this family picture.
