Corner time success!!!

So we started putting Ethan in the corner on Saturday 7/31, and it was an huge success! It was like he was born to stand there! We would put him in there and tell him to stay until we called him out and he did! Are kids born knowing what the corner is and how to stand in it? God really blessed us with this corner time and it working so well. We can even tell him go stand in the corner and he does it all by himself! As you can tell I am over joyed! Ha, It seems silly when you think about how jazzed I am over this! Oh well it is the simple things in life I suppose.

We also started potty training and that didn't go over too well. I don't believe Ethan is quite ready yet. So instead of continuing on and possibly scaring him from ever using the potty again, we just stopped all together. I would rather wait a bit longer then risk a scare that could make the whole process ten times harder. So hopefully when he starts to exhibit more signs we will try again. As for right now we are having fun sitting, watching, and learning from others.

He is enjoying splashing in his pool, and laughing! Making his silly scrunchy nose face and running around playing monster with daddy. He loves to tickle others he thinks that is a ton of fun! He likes to jump up and down! He likes to help mommy with mopping. (he takes a wet wipe out and scrubs the floor so cute!) He runs from the vacuum screaming because it is too loud. But when it is off he shows it who is boss! He is enjoying running outside and spending time with family. He loves his swing grandma bought him he will sit in it for hours if you let him. Everyday and everything is a new adventure for Ethan to explore and learn, and he is soaking it all up. He takes it all in as not to miss one thing God has blessed him with!

We are so thrilled God blessed us with him (and his brother Austin of course!) and excited to see what God has in store for him in his walk!
