"This Is A Very Big Day!"

 Gus loves the movie Tangled  :-)

In the words of our favorite golden haired princess, today was a very big day! So many great things happened and two very big firsts for Hugh!!

We are on day four of potty training and so far, so good. Each day, we've had one accident (usually around pooping in his undies). Today he just couldn't hold his pee anymore more and he ended up peeing all the way up the hall to the bathroom and then peed on the potty. He must have had an insane amount of liquid within the hour.

Speaking of hours, we've moved from going every 30 minutes to every 60 minutes!! Gus has done really well with this and has become trained to go potty when his watch goes off. Not sure if this is a good thing or not. LOL

We were supposed to go to the park with some MOMS Club friends, but I decided it would be wiser to stay home, so we're close to the potty. It was a pretty laid-back morning and we enjoyed having nothing to do.

The last few days, Hugh has been showing more and more signs on wanting to sit up on his own.

Yesterday, I decided to see if he could sit up by himself for a bit, and he was able to sit for a few minutes before toppling over. When I moved him against the couch, he was perfect and it gave him just the right amount of support. Hugh was in heaven with playing on the floor with Gus.

You're saying to yourself, "My goodness, he's such a cute baby!"

So today, we decided to sit on the floor again and he had more fun. 

This afternoon, he went from laying down to sitting up again. He's unreal!!

I decided that today would be a great day to try some solid foods with Hugh. He's 24 weeks (five and a half months) and I thought it couldn't hurt to try. I opened up some carrots and decided to see what he thought.

He wasn't too sure what to think. He made such funny faces it looked like he hated it, but he kept opening his mouth for more, so it couldn't have been too terrible!!

So not only did Hugh try solids for the first time, but tonight, he went to bed in his crib (in his room) for the first time. Fingers crossed that he sleeps well being in his own room. We wanted to wait until he was six months, but he's getting too heavy for the pack and play (I'm guessing he's over 20 pounds) and his room is quieter. He does well with noise, but I think sleeping in his own room will be a good thing and now is the time to do it.

Anyway, it was a big day for us!!! Tomorrow we have soccer, and Gus will be going without diapers to soccer. I've got a change of clothes in case he needs it, but we'll be experiencing our first weekend without diapers!!

As hard as potty training seems at times, it's been so wonderful to not have to change Gus's diapers!!! He's such a big boy!!!
