Growing up....

In these past few weeks, Grayson has decided to grow up. He has officially retired his crib and only sleeps in his "Big Boy" bed (a twin mattress on the floor). Because of this new transition, he has also decided ONE WEEK BEFORE I HAVE ANOTHER BABY that he no longer needs to take naps!!! This is the worst stage he could possibly hit RIGHT NOW, but oh well... at least I have one week to adjust.

Grayson has also decided that he wants to go potty on the potty. Whenever he walks past the bathroom, he sees that gleaming porcelein reminder that "Hey, I don't have to wear pants!" and immediately strips down. (I don't think his desire to potty train has anything to do with going to the bathroom!) So, I spend my days with a clothes-less child (See video below). The other day he walked into my room while stripping off his diaper. I was still in bed, but attempted to talk him into keeping it on. He just looked at me and ripped it off. (Grayson loves to dance naked and combined with his speed and talent of ripping off a diaper, I'm beginning to worry about future career paths.)

Then I tried sweet-talking him into going to sit on the potty without my assistance (a desperate attempt to get five minutes more of rest). Grayson smiled at me sweetly as if he understood exactly what I was asking...

then peed in the garbage can.




...At least he has good aim.

Ah ha ha ha!!!!! I love reading your stories Krystle. I hope Grayson decides naps are a good idea again though, and that he should avoid certain career paths, and starts peeing in the toilet, not the garbage can. Ha ha. Good luck! Love ya!

Krystle...You know I am not a woman of few words but I will try my hardest! first of all I love your blogs and it really makes me miss you. YES it is the age the kids are that they do those things. and about being a SAHM: I have to be out of the home to teach (which I LOVE SOO SOO MUCH!) but I think only those who dont get to be a SAHM realize how hard it is to watch your child grow up in someone elses house. (and I know she is only there for a little while but still) It is really hard. I know you are doing a great job and you are doing what you are called to do and Im really really happy for you. I am sure you are wonderful. I wish I could see you. love your guts...and your belly too! :)

Sorry Krystle but that is funny.

Keep pushing the nap thing though. He probably just senses that something is happening. Danica did the same thing before Whitney was born and Whitney did the same thing before Dallin was born.

Good luck and we are excited to meet your little girl!!
