Potty Progress

For the last two days Josiah hasn't had any accidents. He still wears a diaper a nap time and bedtime, but wore the same pull up for a whole day. Just thought I'd share the progess. I am really happy about this and hope it continues.

Sweet Kid

Josiah has been especially sweet lately. I would like to say he is sweet all the time, but being a extremely outgoing two year old boy, he can be a little pill at times.
He does really well with saying thankyou to us. Lately, he will say thank you when we give him something or let him watch a show and then five or ten minutes later he will come to us and say, "thank you, mommy and daddy." Sometimes he will do it over and over. It's pretty cute.
Another cute story...
Every evening when Nick gets home we hear the garage door go up. Josiah always yells, "Daddy home." Well the other morning, Nick went to get Josiah out of his crib and Josiah all sleepy says, "Daddy Home." Seems like Josiah was a little confused on what part of the day it was, but Nick really loved it.

No Pistachios!

We found out last weekend that Josiah is allergic to pistachios. He ate 6 pistachios and then his face started to swell up. Thankfully his throat didn't close up and he quickly got better with Benadryl. The doctor is having us carry around an epi-pen wherever we go, especially while we wait on Josiah's allergy test. They took some blood today and will test for all nuts. I'm praying pistachios will be the only reaction.
It was scary to see his face all swollen and I never want that to happen again. I am hoping he'll grow out of this quickly.

Tool Time

As anyone with a two year old son knows, they love to do whatever Daddy is doing. Nick was fixing one of our pieces of furniture and Josiah thought Daddy needed some help, so he quickly grabbed a tool and started copying Nick. I came upstairs to find them side by side fixing the door. I had to take some pictures.

Potty Progress

Josiah's progress is pretty much the same. Right now he is in a stage of saying "No" to us all the time. He's had many time outs of it too! It's frustrating because desire to go on the potty isn't there anymore. He still goes pee-pee on the potty, but usually puts up a fuss. I try not to make a big deal of it because I don't want him to hate the potty.
Right now the potty training is at a plateau. Hopefully it will progress soon and he'll be doing poo-poo on the potty. I can't believe how well he's done so far. Hopefully he'll start to enjoy it again.

It's Time

It's time for touching up the paint! After dreading the task for four months, I've decided I need to finish the paint job we did before we even moved in. Actually I barely did any painting-thanks to mom and dad who pretty much painted the whole house by themselves.
I always dread taking the blue tape off, because you are never sure you put it up evenly. Thanks to the wonderfully textured walls(much sarcasm-although they are nice if you are not painting), there are quite a few places that need to be touched up. There's a lot of spots towards the ceiling that need to be redone and spots where the homeowners before us accidently painted the ceiling.
So this is the weekend for touchups!! I can't be lazy anymore. I'm surprised I haven't done this sooner, because I seriously go to bed hating that I can see uneven lines-I may be somewhat OCD.
My parents did an awesome job of painting and now I need to put a little effort into this and finish the project.
