When I called Annie for her help, she said why not bring over your end table and work on that too? So, I did! I forgot to take a before picture, so it's a good thing we have 2! This is the one that has been sitting down in our basement collecting dust and storing papers for us. The one I finished did not have paper stuck to it, but you get the idea. I did not have the vision to see how this piece of furniture could turn out good at all. But Annie sure did!
Wow!!! Did you ever see that coming? Cameron was so impressed! He said it actually looks like a nice piece of furniture! Now I'm thinking I need to dust off it's twin, refurbish it and find a spot for it in our living room too! Thanks Annie for having "the vision" and teaching me your ways, you're great! She helped me finish these pieces all in 1 day! Hopefully sometime I'll have more furniture finished to show you!
The first time I sat him down, he was so excited but was too scared to actually do anything. Finally after a few tries he peed, I got so excited and that made him want to keep doing it over and over again! So, Monday and Tuesday he did amazing! He even started going to the bathroom on his own, w/o telling me! Wednesday he was a little thrown off b/c I babysat a couple of kids and he just wanted to play the whole time. He wanted nothing to do w/ wearing his underwear or going potty in the toilet and through temper tantrums when I refused to put a diaper on him! The same day he continued this behavior, until.... I was changing Connor's diaper and decided I would ask him if he wanted to go potty. He jumped up, said, "Uh huh!" and ran to the potty. As soon as he sat down I could see that look in Cade's eye, you know, jealousy! My plan worked!! He said he wanted to go potty too, and has been doing great ever since! The only thing is he has not gone #2 in the toilet yet, he just waits until nap time or night time when he has a diaper on and goes, kind of frustrating, but we're still working on that. I kept him naked pretty much all day, and I noticed whenever I put underwear on him is when he would have his accidents. So far he has only had one poop accident in his underwear and several pee, but nothing for that last 3 days!! So he is doing great! I'm so proud of him!
Isn't he so cute in his undies?
And, well, Connor has more than enough. I'd say he has 2 of Cade's bums ;) Sorry if you're offended, I just think they're so cute!
We went w/ 2 of my friends, Annie and Lori (they're in the background along w/ Annie's daughter, Brooklyn).
Cameron has been participating in Stake basketball for the past month or so. We get to go and watch him play when they actually play before bedtime. I found Cade sitting like this during the game, don't you just love this picture! He's such a big boy!
