yamboree! (halloween sneak peak)

Before we go into the Yamboree, I need to give a potty training update!  Days 3 and 4 were great!  Days 5 and 6 we took a few steps backwards, which made me pretty nervous for church today.  But today, he made it all day with no accidents!!  Which included church, Bible class, and our Fall Carnival tonight!  Clutch. 

Anyways, Yamboree.  We made it a 2 day event this year, going to see the animals on Friday and the parade on Saturday.  Drayton's favorite animals were for sure the pigs.  He went crazy over them!

feeding the goats

sweet little cousins!

at the parade on Saturday, Drayton became good friends with Blake.  When we had to leave Blake, he just kept saying "lake? lake? lake?" 

a sneak peek for his Halloween costume!  any guesses?

Days 2 and 3

Each day has gotten better and better! Day 2, we had a few accidents, but he was starting to get the hang of holding it when he felt the need to go.  Today, day 3, he had no big accidents, and is starting to say "potty!"  when he has to go.  I guess it is possible for it to all collapse from here, but for now, I am hopeful that he will be potty trianed soon!!  Anyways, I think he looks so stinkin cute in his big boy underwear!

the undies and boots might be my favorite look

it's hard to pull off whitey tighties!

Here's hoping for day 4!

Day 1 of poo and pee

Just thought I'd call it what it is.  A lot of poo and pee.  We are potty training!!!  Who knows if it will work.  Today was the first day, so I have some hope it will get better.  It has to, or we are going back to diapers.  Anyways, here are a few pictures from today.
Feeling like big stuff in his big boy underwear

Notice the couch cushion had to be removed for repairs.  It was unfortunately the first casualty of the day.

Feeling surly about something.

still surly
So we'll see how tomorrow goes!

in the meantime. . .

I have been waiting to update the blog until I could do a camp post, but I haven't been able to get our camp pictures together, so in the meantime, here's what we've been up to! (other than CDR, Italy, and Gulf Shores).

Drayton got his first "real"big boy haircut.  I cut quite a bit off accidentally.  I feel like it makes him look so old! Sometimes it makes him look really old when it looks like a toupee.

Socks and a diaper is one of my favorite outfits.  Not mine, but Drayton's.

Drayton has discovered flowers and loves to pick them, name their color and sniff them!  Coda didn't want to smell them.

Drayton has become a dancing fool and these are his special dancing shoes (thanks Rachel!) .  His favorite dancing music is bluegrass.  We have had many family dance parties, which would probably be pretty funny to see.

So, you can get a glimpse of what family dance time is all about.
