What a big boy!

We're back from Mississippi! It was a very productive trip, and we stuck with the potty-training the entire time.
Little Elvis is such a big boy with using the potty. He won't tell us when he's going, though. We just have to ask him and take him to the potty several times a day. If he's having lots of fun, he will forget and use his diaper or undies. And he wants to have a diaper on for the poopy. That's not a big deal, though. I have a huge stockpile of diapers.

Over the past couple of weeks, I've just been so astounded at what a big boy Little Elvis has become. He's much more vocal. We don't always understand what he's saying, but he's very patient with us until we figure out the new words.

His favorite topics involve cars, naturally. He's always "Ready to go!" and once we get into the car, he wants to know where we're going. If we say "Gram and Coachpa's house," then he'll tell us we're going home, or going to see Gram's car, or Coachpa's truck. If we're going to someone else's house, he'll pick out some detail about their house. My mom's parents have a little dog named Twinkie. If we told him we were going to Mamaw and Papaw's, then he immediately started talking about going to see Twinkie.

On our way home yesterday, he got very excited when we turned onto our street. He started talking about seeing the kitty cats, Daddy's car, Mommy's car, and our neighbor's truck. The first three didn't surprise us, but we were impressed that he remembered our neighbor's name.
Lots of fun stuff happened and we have several cute pics and some videos. I have promised myself that I will get over my fear of the new video editing software. We've still got stuff from January that I never did anything with.

Welcome back! I just knew LE would do wonderfully with potty training while you were away. When they're ready, they're ready, and it sounds like he definitely was.

Good luck with the potty training. We are working on that with Bryleigh...and she is not doing as well as Little Elvis.
