3rd Birthday and Potty Training

I am a few weeks behind to write about Zachary's 3rd birthday. He turned 3 the day after we moved to the new house, so he was the first birthday celebrated on the ranch! We invited over our "old" neighbors Dustin, Karlie & Paisley to help us eat the cupcakes. It was a nice evening with family and a few friends. Zachary and William both helped me make the cupcakes and decorate them too. They LOVE to help me in the kitchen whenever I am making (especially baking) something.

Now that Zachary is three I decided it was time to get him going on the toilet! He is very aware when it comes to his business and knows he shouldn't be in a diaper anymore. So, last week we began the switch to underwear and he is doing great! He is doing perfect in the pee department .... loves going outside on a different tree or bush every time he feels the need :) The business is still in the works of perfecting. He does recognize the feelings and runs to tell me that he has to go, but he is still learning how to hold it in until he can get to the right place. Needless to say I have been doing a lot of laundry :) But at least my washing machine is hooked up now! I am very proud of Zachary, he is doing great. When he does good (or at least tries to) he smiles at me and gives me a big hug and says "I love you Mom". He is such a sweet boy.

Hurray for only 1 in diapers!


  1. awwww, that IS sweet. I can't wait to spend some time with you guys!

  2. He is such a sweet boy. That is a lot of work potty training and moving and doing it all solo. Don't know how you do it Lori. You're amazing.
