A slightly gross post!

The picture of the well dressed guy above is from the day Michelle took Jack into meet her coworkers. Several of her coworkers have gone above and beyond with the things they have given us for Jack. From clothes, to toys, to food, to sidewalk chalk (also pictured above), her coworkers have been great and we truly appreciate their contributions.

Okay, now for the gross part! Last weekend we were at Walmart in the baby section when we walked past the potty training potties. We couldn't resist the little frog potty they had despite the fact that we probably are nowhere close to starting potty training. Anyway, Jack enjoys sitting on it but tonight before bath time he actually used it for the first time! I will spare you the major details, but watching Michelle try to hide her feelings about the smells associated with this momentous occasion was hilarious. Believe me, if we had taken a video of her during this, it would be on youtube right now. Anyway, he didn't use the potty out of a need or on his own inclination, it was just a "right place, right time" type of situation right before bath time so Michelle plopped him down on his froggy seat and the rest is history. So, the three of us were high fiving and hugging all amidst a smell that could have peeled the paint off of a battleship. That's our little guy!

Not much new is going on with us these days. We are really enjoying the nicer weather and it's nice to be able to just put a light jacket on Jack for a walk around the neighborhood rather than spend 45 minutes bundling him up for frigid weather. Jack and I took a walk on the beach the other day and we can't wait until we can play in the water when it really warms up.

Speech Therapy and his play group are still going very well too. Jack loves to learn in both of these settings and at play group this week he ran from one activity to the next in the gym. I couldn't keep up with him!

Guess that's all for now. You can all thank me for refusing to take a picture of the frog potty after Jack was done with it tonight. My better half wanted to take a picture of it which probably would have ended up on our blog which would have undoubtedly cost us many followers!


  1. Fantastic pictures! Jack looks great!
