Yeah I know he should have his pumpkin shirt on to complete the outfit, but oh well. Next time (LOL).
So I read this rather popular / semi-famous blog, This Place is Now a Home by Kate, and what can I say, SHE'S ADORABLE! And so is her family and baby Owen. She had a give-a-way for baby legwarmers and I didn't win but I took advantage of the 20% discount she offered. I ordered the pumpkin ones (DUHHH) and a bundle pack (huge deal; three for the price of one practically!).
You can only imagine how I SQUEALLED IN DELIGHT when I got them in the mail and they said right there on the package how they were "great for EC'n" (EXACTLY WHY I WANTED THEM!). I hadn't heard it called EC'n but that is cute! :) I actually can't believe Kate hasn't written about or tried Elimination Communication! I rip Blaine's diaper off every 45 minutes or less when I'm at home for him to try the potty and pants are just a pain in the butt.
So here's the 8 week update on how he's been doing. Somedays are better than others and somedays I even freak out that he "forgot how to use the potty". But then he always proves me wrong and does something AMAZING, like today! Remember how I said he is great at peeing but not so great at pooping on the potty? Well, in the last 24 hours he pooped on the potty THREE TIMES!! At 1 AM, at 8 AM, and at 8 PM. Meaning he only pooped in his diaper once! He has pooped in the potty for 6 straight days now. Happy mommy! AND HE PEED IN THE REAL TOILET AT A FRIEND'S HOUSE AGAIN TODAY!! Omg babies amaze me.
