Wednesdays with Weston: Week 51

Potty training take #342

Since Jackson is almost 4 and he cannot go to preschool in the Fall without being potty trained I decided to get going hard on the training. Monday morning we started the 3 day training, stayed home, put on big boy underware and pushed the salty snacks and liquids.

Day 1: no accidents. 5 pees and 1 poop! Amazing start! He got a new Dino toy for the poop (cause dad promised one when he 1st pooped in the potty). We made an outing to Target for the toy in underwear, success! 
Day 2: 7 pees, 1 accident, no poop. 
Day 3: 5 pees, no accidents, and no poop.  A great day in my book.

Since day 1 he has gone to the potty alone and showed me his work afterward! He was so ready for this! I am just so glad that it is going this well so far.  He gets a sticker for every pee and after 5 stickers he gets to pick a toy from my stash. I only have 6 toys left, after that he will have to be satisfied with my happy dance. 

Update 2 weeks later: He has not had anymore accidents and is a super rock star!

Pool day

We spent the day in MiMa and Pop's pool. Jackson is fearless jumping and swimming in the pool.
Mimi came by for lunch and hugs.
Weston is now enjoying the perks of teeth "Cheerios".
Ryan showing Jackson his moves on the diving board.

Ryan and I took Jackson to see How To Train A Dragon 2 after swimming all morning. He loved getting popcorn and watching the movie...until...
He passed out from no nap and lots of swimming. Poor guy...
He stayed asleep all the way to dinner at Country Tavern and didn't really wake all the way up till 8pm. It was a hard day.

All the babies

I finally got to meet baby Luke and hang out with The Philley's in Tyler. So much fun catching up. Luke is 2 months and Weston is 11 months.

Then we got to meet the newest baby cousin Eli. Only 5 days old he is the sweetest chunky monkey with a head full of dark hair. Born weighing 9.7 lbs.
Baby Selfie!

Madilyn got a hold of Jackson and he didn't stand a chance.
This one is for blackmail one day.

A day at the museum

Today we made a day trip to Waco to visit the family and see the dinosaurs at the Mayborn.
Jackson with his Triceritops next to a Triceritops. He wasn't sure if it was real or not.

Soon enough Weston will be running around this place.
The boys getting into trouble.
Jackson's favorite part of the Mayborn.
I finally got my Sakura Bloom Ring Sling in.
What Weston looks like right before bed. Sleepy...
I got to bring home my cute red pew from Waco today. I have always wanted a pew on this wall. It is complete.
