How's Eyan?

I get this question often.  Most people are wondering how is he doing with the fact that he is about to be a big brother.  Well truth is, he has NO CLUE what is about to hit.  I try to explain it to him, but he just doesn't care.  He does know that the baby is in my tummy and its a baby sister (he did actually come over and pat my boobs and ask if baby sister was happy last night and tried to feel her kick when I redirected said hands), but other than that he really could care less.  So right now, he is doing fantastic!

He is obsessed with Toy Story.  He sleeps with Toy Story PJ's, carries around the figurines, recites quotes from the movie and overall is just in love with these characters.

He is the size of a 3 year old I swear all his pants fit waist wise (2T) but length wise they are all too short!  WTH?  Seriously Jason and I are not the tallest people so where he is getting his height from is beyond me.  I tried buying 3T pants but they are WAY to big around the waist, so for know its just some high-waters.

He is talking A LOT and more importantly developing manners.  Instead of demanding items, he now asks politely and says please and thank you.  It is pleasant and I am so proud of the little man he is turning into. 

He is 98% potty trained.  We have still not conquered the nighttime potty thang, but at some point we will.  But he has gone 2 weeks without a major accident, he takes himself to the potty and tells us that he needs to go and for that I am eternally thankful.  I have been warned about 10,000 times that regression will happen when little missy arrives, but I am confident we will get through this. 

He is dang aggressive to our poor dogs.  We are trying to get this under control and utilizing time outs constantly.  I have noticed that when he lays on the puppies he is usually tired, but sometimes he just takes his favorite dump truck and chases the poor girls around ramming them.  Jason and I have had to take said dump truck away because of this.  Any thoughts to curb this would be appreciated.

He is super picky about what he eats and he LOVES sweets and fruit (which I guess is a sweet).  I made a delicious lasagna last night, Eyan ate the ranch dressing and a carrot with about 2 bites of lasagna.  But not an hour later did he decide he was starving for pudding.  Nice try kid but balanced diets are better than crap.  I am not however mom of the year and sometimes I cave and feed him whatever he asks for. 

Now for some silly faces. 


  1. He's such a cutie! Totally guilty of caving in with my picky eater too... Both of my kids are long and thin. I've found that the pants at Children's Place with the adjustable waists are the best! When my son was little they were the only one's that carried them, now you can find them at most stores. Hopefully he won't regress with the potty training, my son did just fine with the adjustment. A little extra attention from Grandma really helped though! He got to spend the weekend with her and Papa which made a hudge difference in his behavior!

  2. I can't wait till Zane gets to be E age. We don't have a picky eater but we have a non talker who does not say please and thank you yet. He is just too cute!


I adore reading your comments! Please leave me your thoughts :)
