Signs that Atticus is growing up!

My sweet little baby is growing way too fast.  First, I refused to potty train him when he clearly didn't want to wear his diaper.  This was not done because I didn't want to train him, it was because I wanted to wait until summer when I would be home all the time to monitor him.  Well after 3 weeks, he has had only 2 accidents.  He loves wearing his spiderman, iron man, cars, Diego and Thomas the Train underwear.  I was told that boys are much harder to potty train but I guess I got lucky!

Second,  Atti now wants to sleep in the big bed with Emerson.  I was worried that once he started sleeping in a bed, he wouldn't want to take naps anymore but he hasn't fought me on that yet.  I am now going to have to take down the crib and find someone who can use it since we will never use it again ( I am so sad but not enough to have another baby!) So good-bye crib forever!

Third, Atti is now talking SO much.  We can even understand most of what he is saying.  Although I wish some words we didn't understand!  These are some of his favorite words and phrases:

mama, watch me!
Eme, NO!
whats that sound?
I farted!
yucky charms=lucky charms (he mentions yucky charms everytime he prays)
boobie=movie and smoothie
dumb f#@k=dump truck
fire f#@k=fire truck
garbage f#@k=garbage truck (are you seeing a pattern?)

It doesn't help that every time he drops the F bomb he gets a laugh or a look of shock from everyone.  

I honestly do love watching him develop and discover every day.  He is an absolute crack up.  Now I just need him to give up his binky!

Let me know how getting rid of the binky goes because Rhyland still has his and I don't think him or I can live without it right now.

That is hilarious! My nephew always used that word for truck, too! So funny. I actually have made a headband and a clip with the flowers- I need to do more, though! talk to ya later!!

Rachael got Owen to give up his binky pretty easily by just cutting the tip off. Then when Owen would put it in his mouth, no more suction and he got frustrated with it pretty fast. When he didn't get what he wanted from it he threw it away in disgust.
