Holiday Break

Elliott had 2 weeks off of school and I loved it! It was a wonderful winter vacation for me.  No lunches to be packed, no time commitments, we didnt need to get dressed and leave the house. We could play together all day.  I kept Spencer out of school too.  It was so relaxing!

One of the days we spent at Old Town park running off the sugar from an earlier birthday party. 

I love these adorable boys! 

Teeth

My biggest boy has his first loose tooth.  I wiggle it every day.  He is not impressed.

My little girl has her first tooth coming in.

Somehow this timing is symbolic, but I am simply too tired to analyze it in detail.  *sigh*

Update: Make that 2 and 2!  2 loose for Elliott and 2 coming in for Trea.

Milestone-Elliott

Elliott, who will turn 6 on July 1st, has hit a milestone.  Last night, for the first time I am aware of, was able to wake himself up and get out of bed to pee all on his own.  He didn’t call for us either.  I heard him get out of bed, go to the toilet, pee and return to bed.

Since he was little, he has been a ‘heavy wetter’.  He was tough to potty train, and had accidents with frequency.  Up until a few months ago, he wore an overnight pull up. He has always been a very hard sleeper.  The pediatrician said that some kids physically aren’t ready, and to just wait it out.  I was fine with that, and so was he.

It seems that the wait is over and his body is ready to take charge.  I am glad we allowed him to take it at his pace.
