My baby grows up...

OVERNIGHT. That's right, my sweet baby, Elan, who is 2 1/2 woke up yesterday and says, "Mom, MOM! I want to wear underwear! Football players wear underwear!" Well... uh... OK! So we put the big boy underwear on and the rest is history. That sweet, smart child kept those undies dry the entire day- NOT ONE ACCIDENT. Then yesterday afternoon, he says, "Here mom. (handing me his pappy and blankie) I don't want these. I'm big now. I'm potty trained!" Well, sniff, sniff, ok.
And at this moment, he is still dry as a chip in his big boy underwear, and blankie is under a chair and pappy is on the kitchen floor. What happened here? He'll be off on his motorcycle going to college soon... boo-hoo-hoo...
And this is what I miss...

This is one of my favorite LO's. It's Elan at 10 weeks old. I loved this LO so much that I submitted it for publishing a while back. (Still no word on that part ;) Anyway, Elan was a very hard baby- cried all the time and never slept. So, I feel like I missed his infancy. I was so busy being stressed, depressed and upset that time just passed by. Enjoy your infants while you can... they will be potty training themselves soon...


  1. I told you!!!!! :) Maybe mMatthew let him in on the secret! YEAH!!!
