I think we have a potty-trained Milo!

Well, I call Milo a "Super Pee-er" because he is doing so well with potty training! He hasn't had an accident for a few days and he told us when he needed to go while out shopping, even though he had on a diaper! I took him to the bathroom and he went, so we're very excited. He even told us when he needed to go at Jesse's parent's house!

I had my one-hour glucose test this morning (one of my doctors said that I should be tested at 17 weeks since I had gestational diabetes with Milo's pregnancy) and PASSED!!! I thought I would fail for sure, but was super excited when my number was fine. I celebrated with a frappe from McDonald's. I know, way to try and overload my body. I will get re-tested at 24-28 weeks like a "normal" pregnancy, and if I fail that test, I'll be fine, that's how long I was on the diet with Milo, I just didn't want to eat like that for over half of my pregnancy.

I had a wonderful Mother's Day, I got new pots and pans! Our other ones were non-stick and the teflon has been bubbling and flaking off, so it was time. We went with "stick" pans (what do you call them when they're not non-stick?) and they are so shiny and beautiful! Milo also painted me a coffee mug. Jesse had him paint it while I had the opportunity to sleep in on Sunday, and when I came downstairs, Milo looked at me and said, "I just paint you a cup!" I wasn't supposed to get it until it was good and dry in the afternoon, he cracks me up.

I also signed Milo up for swimming lessons at the Y today. We'll start with the parent/tot class and see how he does. Poor Milo wanted to go swimming today, he could see the pool while I was getting us registered. We have about a month until the class starts. He also dunks himself in my parent's hot tub, so hopefully he'll do well.

Have a great week, ours is off to a great start!!!

Another Quick Update

Potty training is going well, not perfect, but well! It's been a week since we started and today he willingly pooped on the potty! He also only had one accident today, and he was walking into the bathroom when it happened. He is getting better about telling us when he needs to sit, and that just started yesterday, we've been having to ask him about every 30 minutes if he needed to go. Either way, we're very proud of him and let's hope it keeps happening!
