today we went to meet gma phyllis at her dr appt; she was with nanaw and aunt d but we rode down with our cousins. uncle matt and rachel came too!! it was so much fun! the kiddos got along great despite the 2.5 hour car ride and the approximately $391 speeding ticket that i got before i even left city limits! but we had a lot of fun, the kiddos had fun showing off for their nanaw's, being silly with each other and making a huge mess at lunch. (don't worry, we left a good tip!)
so anyways on to the potty news! so we're at lunch and uncle matt got up to go to the bathroom. bubba wanted to know where he was going and we said he was going "pee pee in the potty because he's a big boy. do you want to go pee pee in the potty?" to my ultimate surprise he said "uh huh" so we hauled booty to the bathroom and as I was pulling off his diaper he said "no" and shook his head. well i told him that if he went pee pee in the potty then he would get to give nanaw and uncle matt High 5's....that was the trick. he peed instantly!
long story short he did it 2 more times this evening, all for a High 5! its amazing! between the last two potty trips, his diaper was dry! its so exciting! i don't want to get TOO excited but things are looking up. :D
as for pooks, he had his 9 month check up yesterday. he is doing great! 20lbs 14oz, 27.5 inches long and his head was 18 inches around! basically he is in the 50th percentile for weight, the 25th for height and the 75th for head circumference! while he's a little uneven he is right on track for him (basically he's following the same curve he alwasys has). developmentally wise, other than crawling he is right on track. he can play peek a boo, he can put things in a container, he says 'dada', he can stand--he's just perfect (well in my opinion!).
OH! and in other exciting bubba related news--
today we were coloring and i colored with the blue crayon, asked bubba what color it was... he said ''blue''. no surprise everything to him is blue. then i colored the giraffe yellow and asked him what color the giraffe was. he pointed right to the giraffe and said "wellwhoa" aka, yellow...WHAT?! pottying and knowing his colors in one day!? how can one mom get so lucky!

i pretty much guarantee that the following video is the most hilarious video that you have ever seen. not just on my blog but in LIFE! enjoy.
see? didn't i tell you?? he is so damn cute it makes my head spin! this all started last week when we heard the song in the car. he was sitting in his carseat with his little legs kicking the seat, bopping his head, attemping to snap his fingers--while wearing sunglasses, saying 'no no no' (which the song lyrics are ''low, low, low'' but pretty close). i just want to squeeze him! where the heck he learns this stuff is beyond me. he's always loved music and dancing but this is getting priceless! watch out Ellen, bubba is close behind! lol!

they are an actual product (http://www.babylegs.net/) but they are $12 per pair. Yikes! so i made our own for $6.99 total. they will work really well to cover pooks legs when i carry him in one of our carriers. his chubby little calves always end up being exposed, but not anymore.
yes bubba is wearing his thomas the tank engine underwear OVER his diaper...its a start. if he'll wear them, i'll let him.
pooks rocking the emo look as B said.

here is a pic of bubba in his new snowsuit. its a Columbia fleece body jacket. its perfect for him because he can't take it off in the shopping cart, it keeps him warm and he's still free to walk about in it. and no, i did not spend $45 on jacket for 2 year old, but I did spend $17!
now, you have to imagine him wearing the bodysuit from below, but with his navy blue oakley style sunglasses with diego on them. Adorable, right?
The next couple pictures are of pooks eating Jello. Yes its a semi-cruel snack, but once he was able to pick it up, he loved it! I say its good practice.
In this one he was really concentrating on picking up a "piece".
And just for giggles here is one of me all dressed up with no place to go ;) but i have to say i love my new outfit. every piece is from Kohls and I got a great deal on all of it. (nevermind the fact that i have NO makeup on and my hair is pulled back).

I'm excited but at the same time my feelings are a little hurt. I spend 12 hours a day with him, I get him at night, but his first word was Dada. And, so was bubba's.
oh and he's been doing it ALL day since then. B feels bad. everytime pooks yells "dada", B glances at me and apologizes. *sigh*
I'm convinced that "Dada" is easier to say than "Mama".

bubba love love loves to color with crayons! today we never watched backyardigans, we never had to watch 'thomas the tank engine'....all he did was color. he woke up and wanted his crayons. he ate breakfast then wanted his crayons. we ran errands and first thing when we came home...he wanted his crayons. after dinner, well you get the idea. but for your viewing pleasure here is a piece from his collection :here are a few pictures of pooks yesterday...he was attempting to eat a mini oreo. he's a cutie!
pooks trying to steal his brother's oreo..."ma, these don't taste as good as they look"
"ohhh, i can almost get it...."
aww, and his little sniffly-fussy face after he ate one and wanted more...but mom said no. :(

COMPLETE and utter shock! i have no clue how chubbs managed to go from sitting to standing while in the playpen. he didn't have anything to really grab on to, but he did it. and apparently he did it to get a better view of the tv. he wouldn't look at me for a pic either. silly boy. he CAN do things, he just doesn't feel like it....typical man!
