Well, what can I say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree (Daddy). Noah is doing a wonderful job with potty training. So well, we decide it was time to buy some big boy underwear to test drive. As you can see, Noah seems pretty comfortable in his Thomas the Train comfortable he pooped in them 5 minutes after putting them on! Our potty training journey has begun and all I can say is that I am so proud of our big boy for working so hard.

We enjoyed a nice sunny weekend and I thought I would share a video of Noah playing outside.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Hope to post a few more pictures of from our trips to the beach later this month.

Cheers, Terry

Lil Boy in the "hood"

What can I say, our little guy is keeping us busy. He continues to make us proud of him every(OK most) moment of each day. To our complete amazement, he has been using the potty (1& 2) on a daily basis. I actually think he is more excited to flush the toilet and say bye bye to his "creation"than actually going.

We recently needed to change daycare in order to be in the same school district he will be receiving services when he turns three in October. I was, of course , a nervous wreck thinking about the transition to a new environment, teachers and classmates. We absolutely loved his old school and it was an extremely difficult decision. Well, I need to admit all my worrying was for nothing. Noah loves his new school, teachers and most important his new friends. He is even going potty at school. We still do miss our old teachers & friends :(

We are still working on his feeding issues and continue to make progress with little regression. Our goal over the next 6 months is to have him eat 100% of his food in "soft chewable" form. He went from only eating only 2 foods 6 months ago to eating : yogurt, apple sauce, ice cream, sweet potatoes, hot dogs, bananas, soft carrots, and a few pureed foods (baked beans, noodles & sauce & which are his safe foods. He is now able to spoon feed himself and is starting to learn how to use a fork. He does have behavioral issues while eating, like throwing his food, utensils and drink cup. He seems worse at home than at school so we think it may be a control thing with me :(. If anyone has any advice on how to eliminate this behavior I am all ears!

We are looking foward to Summer this year, already have two trips planned to the beach!

Hope everyone is doing well. I'll try to post more frequently.

Peace - Terry
