back to your regularly scheduled programming

I've still got a few more days of Alaska to get on the blog, but life has still been happening, so time for some catch up!
We've crossed one of those big childhood milestones in our house. Last week we started the potty training, and said goodbye to diapers! Egan has done great. Each day gets easier and easier. There are still accidents here and there, but I'm so proud of the progress he's made. He's SUCH a big boy!
Here's what our week looked like (excluding the "gory details").
One of our best friends this week was the iPad. Egan referred to it more than once as "Egan's iPad".

I guess he's got a point.

He's got a whole folder of games that he knows how to open, play, close, and then choose another game. Here, he's building puzzles. He's amazingly good at it!

We took snack breaks outside. Egan frequently requests to "eat outside".

We played with EVERYTHING in our house... more than once... a day. It takes a lot to entertain a boy when we are stuck to our house for days on end. One fun activity? Painting.

I'm now the proud owner of a whole stack of Egan's fantastic artwork.

He had great technique as well. One paint brush in each hand. For a while, he even kept one color on each brush. When he gave up on both brushes, he just used his left hand. At this point, he still strongly favors his left hand.

My little artist at work.

There were several days last week wen daddy had to work late, and by the end of the day, both Egan and I were totally exhausted. (Apparently Maggie had a rough day as well.) A daddy at work + a tired mommy + a tired little boy = time for a movie.

Outside was another favorite place to be. This was the sight I saw as I got dinner ready one evening.

What, you've never had an iphone wielding knight sitting on a potty in your back yard?
