"If you don't succeed, try, try, again." I think this is Elijah's motto for life. This little 14 month old is DETERMINED. He was determined to learn how to go downstairs. Even though he took a few spills, he finally taught himself. Yes, he gets frustrated, but he will not give up. Of course this works against me when he is told "no." But really I love this about him.
The other night he was determined to put this bucket on his head during bath time. It took him 20 minutes to figure out how to put it on and make it stay. But in the end he did it!
Since I use this blog to mark the milestones and fond memories of my children, I figure I have to keep the poop stories coming. This could be worse, I could be documenting the poop stories with photos. It's been 2 weeks and he is still naming his poop. This weeks highlights: "Mom! I pooped and h!" And it did in fact look like a lowercase h. I commended him on his letter recognition. "It's a lion poop because he said roar when I pooped him." "It's a Lightning McQueen poop! Cause it's got a spoiler on it." "It's a dolphin poop! He's swimming in the water that's my pee!" Nathan: "It's a prince poop. Can I have a chocolate for going poop?" Me: "I don't think so." Nathan, TALKS TO HIS POOP: "Do you think I should get a chocolate? Mom! He says yes." - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
