Putting it in writing

Cade is offically potty trained! We still are using a diaper at night, just in case, but he hates putting them on now so I think we'll be moving onto undies soon.
We're about $20 in the hole buying matchbox cars, but it worked! In fact his matchbox cars have taught him a lot. The other day we were at the post office waiting in line, Cade looked out the window and said "Red Porsche mama". And sure enough there was the life size version of his red matchbox Porsche sitting outside. (You should have seen the owner of the Porsche's smile!)
I have to say that once we finally got serious about getting Cade out of diapers it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. (Though he has already learned the stall tactics of going potty -"time for bed Cade", "no, poop in toilet now mommy" is how are nites are going!) I credit Andrew to getting Cade to go. After weeks of me putting Cade on the toilet and standing in there waiting for him to go, Andrew put him on the toilet, said "Cade do you want to be alone", Cade said yes, and he went! I can't tell you how nice it is to go to Costco and only spend $32.00 on diapers as opposed to $60!!

PS. I haven't posted much about Genevieve lately, probably because we are a little disapointed with her right now. She had her 9 month check up a few days ago and is only in the 95% for height instead of Off the Charts. We're hoping she can catch up again soon. :)
