He decided in just one day last week that he was going to use the potty and that was it. Seriously! I'm pretty sure this is the easiest potty training experience to go down in the record books, especially for a boy. There was no help from Mommy, just like anything else he does, he wants to do it himself first.
At his party, I had to keep wiping all the watermelon and cake off of him, but it almost seemed like he was embarrassed his Mommy was fussing over him. He said, "I do it!" and would grab the cloth from my hands and wipe his own mouth and shirt each time. ::sniffles::
I'm always blown away at how smart he is and how much he understands. He can count to 10 and sing his ABC's. He has most people fooled by his shy, quiet personality, but his vocabulary is more extensive than that of his sisters. Show off! His favorite song is "Jesus Loves Me" and loves all things cars, trucks, farm animals, and dinosaurs.
Car and truck play is very serious. He is always lining up all of his vehicles or moving them along the back of the couch or table with slow intentional movements until he breaks out with a "Hi, car!" to his other car. :) All boy is in his bones, but he leaves a soft spot for Mommy in his heart, which I will hold on to for as long as I can!
His birthday was a sweet spot in the mist of some rocky places lately. We have had tough decisions and small bumps over the past couple months. I needed the goodness of this weekend to overflow my heart.
It was refreshing to have family over for the party and to spoil our little birthday boy. It made for a special Father's day weekend.
Happy 2nd Birthday, Tyler!
We love you!!
