just a couple of smile worthy snippets

We are not really potty-training ... yet.  By we, I actually mean Bubby, since both The Hubs and I are potty-trained.  We do, however, encourage Bubby to let us know if he wants to go on the toilet (usually he refers to it as Elmo since the toddler cover is decorated with a scuba-diving Elmo, which is slightly disturbing if you think about it too long.)  Anyhooo...

The other night Bubby let out a string of toots.  (what we call them with him).
Me: Bubby, do you need to go poo-poo on Elmo?
Bubby (in all seriousness): It's too late.

Bubby was attempting to put his shoes on by himself this morning and doing a pretty good job.  "Yay!  Good for you! Yay!" I cheered.  Bugaboo, sprawled out on the floor near him, started laughing and clapping.  This is wonderful for two reasons. First of all, he has never clapped without us helping him do it.  Second, he was finally actually coordinated and motivated enough to do it.  He smiled and clapped and giggled every time I said, "Yay!" which of course I had to keep saying because he was just so stinkin' cute.

In other Bugaboo news, he has started to spin himself around in a circle while sitting on hard floors.  He also, somehow, can scoot himself forward a bit in a sitting position on these surfaces.  He still isn't belly-creeping or crawling, but he is now at least wanting to move and figuring out some way to move.  And for that we are thankful.  Please keep praying for his development. We have a neuro follow up later in March.


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with me.
