Children's Museum

We had so much fun! It was really fun to see Caden just running free and exploring. His favorite things were; the train table, the roof top playground and the water room. How cute is he riding the dog?!?!

Taking a stand!

I had a ton of cleaning to do today so I let Caden go bare bottom all morning so that I wouldn't have to help him with his underwear! Every time he goes Pee he jumps up and down and shouts for joy so that is how I know to come over and empty his potty. Well, he had already gone 2 or three times when I wasn't looking but all of the Pee seemed to be around the potty and not in it! He is usually so good about sitting down the correct way and not spilling, that I decided I'd better watch and see what was happening. He ran over to the potty but instead of sitting down he stood in front of it and moved his hips trying to get it in the potty! It was so cute!! I put on his underwear and taught him how "open" them and pee in the big toilet while standing up. He thought it was pretty cool. I think he needs a few lessons from Dad before he can do it on his own.

I'm a Big Boy Now!!!

Caden is Potty trained!!!! We started training him a week and a half ago when he started bringing us his potty(We were using it as a stool in the bathroom:) after he would go number 2 in his diaper. I still wasn't sure if I should start until he started holding his legs together saying "P P P P". He is pretty solid now. He goes all on his own if he has no underwear on but he still needs help if he is wearing them! We declared him officially potty trained when we went out and about all day and he had no accidents! He still has trouble when we aren't around. Sariqd watched him for us and he had 2 accidents in his pull ups so I think he is still confused as to who he can ask for help from. All though we have had a lot of success these last couple of days with number 2 he still a little hit and miss, but he gets over half in to the potty so that's pretty good for a 20 month old!Here are some high lights from the whole experience.

Who doesn't like to read on the potty?

There was one day that we just needed a break so we played in the hose diaper free!

Caden was so cute when he would say nope! It was always his answer!

Pictures, Pictures, Pictures and more Pictures!

These pictures are so out of order because Blogger is being weird!

Caden has been loving playing on the back patio in his sand pool and Tara's Kennel
He love sitting in the chair that I use when I'm out there.
We bought Caden a light up fan 4th of July and he was fascinated!
Me pulling the boys (and our friend Eli) at our ward breakfast slash 4th of July parade!
Thanks for the Wagon Grandpa!
Spiky fourth of July Hair
Drake is getting so good at sitting up! He loves it!
Caden has been loving playgrounds, people often ask how old he is and are shocked at how well he can climb, slide, and monkey around for his age!

Drake love going to the beach! He is so calm when we are there.
He has been scooting a lot, but most of the time it's backwards!
Caden has been loving his wagon, he takes all of the things he loves in it (Cars and his blanket)
Fourth of July!!!
Caden pulled Drake in the Wagon all by himself all over the parking lot! I have got a very strong boy on my hands!

Drake has problems with food anymore besides the mess!!

We give him soy milk with his meals from a cup but we have to hold it! He wants to hold the cup so bad but it always ends in spilt milk on the floor and none in his mouth!
Drake Loves having his two little teeth brushed! Especially when he gets to hold the tooth brush!
Caden loves the beach!!! He fell in once and then respected the water much more!
He loves running up and down the water line throwing rocks and running from waves! He such a joy to watch!
So that's all of the stuff we have been up to!
