Boating and a big milestone

For Labor day on Monday we were able to go boating.  Hooray!  It was so much fun.  The weather was not the greatest so we were never able to ski, but we busted out the tubes and had a good time swimming with the kiddos.  I was really surprised how well Sophie did despite missing her nap and not being able to crawl around like usual.  It was awesome!

Starting Tuesday we jumped back on the potty training wagon and it has gone wonderfully.  In the last 48 hours, Jack has had one accident and it involved #2 which I’ve heard takes a bit longer to understand.  Our deal was that if Jack got 10 stars (you get a star for going potty and every time you have an accident all the stars get erased) on his potty chart, he would get his new race track toy that he picked out.  Well today he did it.  We have even ventured out of the house in underwear and all.  And he even napped in his undies and woke up dry.  So I think we’re well on our way and we couldn’t be happier!  I personally have forgotten what its like to only change one set of diapers in a day, and I must say, I am thoroughly enjoying it.  Way to go buddy!  I am so proud!
