I went to look at pictures from today and realized the only one I took was of a poopy in the potty. Mom problems!  Tate has definitely entered the terrible 2s. He loved the word no today.

Dry Diaper

Today we went to play at the park and get groceries. We tried out a new park and Tate mostly wanted to play with the crank cars. He had a hard time leaving the park but listened and cooperated well when we got groceries and he ride the train toy at the store. We watered the bushes when we got home. He got soaked and immediately when I took his clothes and diaper off right when we got inside he sat on the potty seat. His diaper remained dry the whole time we got groceries and played outside. It was dry after nap too so on went the undies. He did a good job keeping them dry. A few times he went just a little and realized it then stopped. I hope he can keep it up. Duke was crying at the door and Tate said "Duke is sad.  He needs a teeny tiny puppy."  He also sorted some dyed noodles and buttons by color.  He ate real popcorn for the first time and devoured it. Puppy got some too.

Tate's latest comments:

I need to see doctor. I bumped my head.

Dogs poop in the grass. Cats have big poop. 

Covers face up with blanket and says:  I can't see. 

He noticed a person smiling in a book and said:  He is happy. 

He also speaks in whale like Dory from Finding Nemo which he has probably only watched twice in his life. I made a fish face for him and he thought I was so funny.

My friend is getting married.  I had so much fun. I needed a little time away with girlfriends.

Tate noticed Brett's whiskers for the first time today. We had a good day despite a rough night. Tate's teacher came and played a game with us that Tate actually participated in. This afternoon he asked "Sit with me and read books?" and let me read to him for an hour. Reading to him while he is snuggled up to me is my favorite way to pass the time. My heart is so full of joy tonight. I am truly blessed!

It rained just enough to chase the guys out of the field so my parents, Brett, and Tate all went out to dinner at Pizza Hut. Then we stopped for groceries where Tate got to ride the train.
