On the Road to Diaper Freedom!!!!

Kaden is finally getting the whole potty idea. While I was at work Thursday, Nate put Kaden on his "big boy potty" and he actually went pee-pee!!! Nate and Kaden's nurse Cristen made it a big deal for him, and he surely enjoyed the attention. I talked to him on the phone and when I came home for lunch, he was very eager to show me the pee daddy and him saved in the potty for me to see. That night we took him to Wal-Mart to get a book for being such a big boy. On Friday, when I came home for lunch he signed potty to me. So I put him on the potty and he did it again. This morning he signed potty and pointed over to his DVD's (he has an Elmo potty video). I asked him if he wanted to watch Elmo go potty and he signed yes (which looks very much like potty). I then asked him if he needed to go "pee-pee," he again signed yes. I sat him on his potty and within 5 to 7 minutes he went "pee-pee" again!!! Yea, I hope he picks this up quickly so we can get rid of the diapers before Ava comes. He is so proud of himself. When he arrived to school on Thursday he signed potty to his teacher first thing, telling her that he used his big boy potty. We even bought him big boy underwear. I know it seems kind of fast, but Nate thought it would be a good idea to let him see how it feels to wear those instead of a diaper. He loved them. Nate put them on him just for awhile and he couldn't leave them alone. I am so excited for him. It's crazy to think of how proud we feel as parents just because of a little pee in the potty.

Isn't it just amazing how much excitment a little pee pee can bring into our lives! Yea, Kaden!!! Even though the situation was a little different, our pee pee dance would bring us so much joy when we had the results of a little...pee pee. Keep up the good work Kaden, get rid of those diapers and prove to the world just how much of a big boy you are.
Love and Prayers Always...

Thank you Amy for your words of encouragement. As you look at Bella and you see what Kaden was, I can look at Kaden and see what Bella will be. Seeing him grow and do the things they said he never would do gives us hope. I went back through and read all of Bella's blog entries and I now realize without a doubt that yes she has come a long long ways since I started the blog in August. It may be just little steps but they are steps forward none the less. Thank you again for your prayers and friendship. It is funny how we can become so close to people we have never even met!! And you are always in my prayers also.

Kaden is getting to be such a big boy. Pee pee in the big potty. Walking around with the help of your hands. What will he do next to impress us all with. He has come such a long way, you go Kaden (super boy). Isn't it funny how they notice the little difference about things, such as the feel of his big boy undies.

Take care. Love and Prayers.
