post-christmas happenings

December 28th | older posts

Matty and David received so many wonderful gifts from family. It was Matty’s first Christmas to really appreciate all the goodies. Of course we had to open each item and play with it before moving on to the next gift!

David has been a walking fool! I can’t even count how many steps he is taking!! He walks from room to room. He turns and walks a different direction without holding on. It is the BEST Christmas gift I can imagine! He is pleased with himself, too! From the looks of this pic, you might think he has taken up grocery shopping, too! Should we have chicken pot pie for dinner???

My in-laws have a Target right across the street (I should be so lucky! The closest Target to us is 40 miles–which is probably a good thing!!). So Matty poops in the potty and then the next morning we go over to Target and pick out a treat. 5 nights in row pooping in the potty!!! I think maybe we’ve crossed the threshold into FULL potty training.

I followed David around Barnes and Noble yesterday. He walks right over to strangers and puts his hand on their knee. He’s very friendly! I was trying to read to Matty but kept having to chase David into the next aisle or across the store. I can’t believe I’ve got a little walker on my hands.
It has been so good to catch my breath and slow down. We’ve had some good time with family and lots of time to play and sleep.

    It looks like Santa has given you one than one wish, but two: Matty does get better in potty, and David walks a lot more than you had anticipated.

    What’s next destination of yours for each ???
