Potty Training Breakthrough!

Yesterday first thing in the morning Oliver came to me and said "potty! potty! potty!" So I took him to the potty and he peed and pooped in the potty! A while later he did it again...and again...and again! I only changed one diaper yesterday - it was (unfortunately) a poop diaper but I think it was because he was just SO tired that he didn't remember to tell me he had to go. He even woke up from his nap dry and went in the potty after that. Thinking this was some kind of fluke and it was a one time deal I didn't expect much today...I was hopeful and optimistic, but I wanted to be realistic. However, the little guy suprised me and has gone potty 3 times already today and had NO wet diapers again! I think he's finally got it! I'm soooooo proud of the little man and very thankful that the diaper days are almost least for a month or two.

Thank you, George!

Yesterday we got our stimulus check in the mail. We went out looking for dishwashers (which we need because the one we have has a crack that leaks steam when it runs and it's ruining the counter) but ended up with this. A new bedding set! This is what I used part of my "fun money" from the check on. We really needed a new quilt because the one we had (we got for a wedding present) has a tear in it and the sheets were starting to get holey. Anyway, this set came with 2 shams, a comforter, a bed skirt, a flat sheet, a fitted sheet and two pillowcases! All for a VERY reasonable price! The comforter and shams are reversable - the second picture is one side, the third picture is the other side. The last picture is the sheets. This will also match our old sheets, which are red. I'm sooooo excited to get into bed tonight!

We did end up getting a dishwasher, too. We paid less that what we budgeted and got the one I really really liked from HHGregg. I'll take pictures when we get in installed, hopefully on Saturday. We saved by picking it up and installing it ourselves - hopefully everything will go ok!

New shirt

My mom got Oliver a new shirt for my birthday...Here's his reaction...

The shirt says "Save my planet" and has a picture of a planet and an alien. Toooooo cute!
Oliver, What do we need to save?

"my PLANET!"
