So really weird thing happened this morning. Beau sleeps in the kitchen and we have a leash that we attach to him so that he can't leave. This morning he was barking because he wanted to go outside and Sean was procrastinating taking him out. All of a sudden Beau showed up next to me. I looked over and Sean was still in bed. Some how Beau got loose from his lease (with out breaking his leash or getting his collar off) and made it to our room. We have no idea how he did it. We have a Houdini dog!

I am happy to say that today went a lot smoother. He actually went into the bathroom himself, moved his stool to the toilet and started to climb up when he needed to go potty. I had to help him the rest of the way but he went potty with no struggle. He has also told me on numerous times that he needed to go potty (the word he uses unanimously for pee or poop is "poop"). I hopefully can teach him the better words for when we venture out into the world so I don't have a child screaming "POOP" in the middle of the store. I have to say to all those out there who are changing poopy diapers, it is so nice when they go into the toilet. Lucas pooped on the toilet for the first time today and that was such a relief!!! I am hoping that by the end of the week Lucas will be pretty much potty trained. We have come so far in just 3 days!!!
Keep your fingers crossed for me that this is successful and I maintain my sanity!

Here are the cousins in the car getting ready to go somewhere. There is Lucas, Grace and James. Lucas is 5 weeks younger then Grace.
My child has a tendency to run away from me and not follow directions so we got this nifty Monkey backpack for him. He really didn't mind it much...
So baby number two is growing. I don't know why but I feel smaller then I did with Lucas. It might be that I am now at the weight that I started with Lucas. Or maybe this baby is just smaller. We find out the sex on June 29th so keep posted because I will let people know. I finished the baby quilt that I started when I was pregnant with Lucas (I was smart I knew how long quilts take me). It was my first attempt at applique and I will have to say that it isn't too bad.
Hopefully we have a girl because the quilt is alittle girly.
So as of yesterday June 14th Lucas has started the long journey towards potty training. Yesterday he only peed in the potty once, but things today have been better. It is 6pm and he has peed 3 times, however while I was making dinner he pooped on the floor, but all the joys of being a mom right?! I just have to keep telling myself that I can't quit. I never quit at anything so this shouldn't be different. I am hoping that I will only have to be on basic house arrest for a week before we can actually leave and venture out into the world.
Beau is doing well. His pooping has gotten under control. We have the best Vet Clinic in the world. Here is our big puppy!
6 Months old!
