Teresa recently acquired a bigger bike so it was time to re-install the training wheels on her old bike and ready it for Owen. But he seemed uninterested. After a brief chat it seems he felt like it was still Teresa's bike, he wanted HIS BIG boy bike. So out came the spray paint cans and a few bursts of color later, Owen has a new green and silver bike. And he rode to and from the pool, gaining confidence with each revolution. Excellent!

We're trying potty training for O... yesterday we had lots of oopsies in the undies; sit and pee, walk down the hall and pee again. Fresh undies and pants and repeat the process. We were beat at the end of the day.

Today, nary a drop! O wore the same undies all day.

We'll see what Monday and only one parent to police the effort brings!

Owen has pretty reliably put poop in the potty since we returned from our trip 3 weeks ago. He announces "poop, poop." We all run to the potty, drop dipe, and in goes poop. Great!

The past few days he has also been telling me "poop" right before he goes pee in his diaper
- no time to run to the potty. But today as I was changing his diaper right before nap, he says poop so I put him down sans diaper. He walked across the hall, sat on the potty, arranged his penis, sat, and then stood up to check. nothing. So he repeated the motions, got things pointed the right way, concentrated, and out came pee!!!!

peepee in the potty, peepee in the potty.
I thought he was going to poop so I tossed his dipe and put him on the potty. Out came pee!

Owen is laughing and loving life most of the time. His first year molars are all just about through. He looooves cuddles and hugs - people and stuffed animals. Animal and other sounds figures highly. Anything round - wheel, ball, fans - are of great interest. Even playing ring AROUND the rosey. He has a few words but mostly we get by with sign language. Looves his big sis.

Owen notices his clothes -- especially the shoes, loves a checking out his toes with animals. He's big into animal sounds, bvoo (moo), woof, may-ow (meow) and is learning body parts - nose was a favorite,now it's the belly button. he loves reading books. This morning, besides his short
nap, he's been busy with the FP airplane, the tool bench (screws), a tonka diecast dumptruck, shapesorters, disassembling the vaporizer, and balls. Oh, singing and dancing too. He's still earning that the sidewalk and street are very different places - he thinks it's a game :( we're working on it. "out" is a favorite word too.
