Disneyland, Easter, and 27 Month Birthday

As the title states, lots have happened this past month.  First off, Mommy had Spring break and she spent the week with me in the beginning of April.  It was really nice spending time with her, though I think she was exhausted.  She decided that it was the week to introduce me to potty training.  I will say, I gave my parents a run for their money, that's for sure.  But by the end of the week, I was doing really well, I must say.

But first, check me out here!  Now that I'm tall enough, I like swinging from this in the park by our house.  This is one of the things we did during spring break.


At the end of the week, Mommy brought me back to daycare so I could have some experience with collecting eggs for the basket my teachers made.  I was only allowed to take five eggs, but I was really good at picking up the ones Mommy named the colors for.




Later that evening, we drove down to Los Angeles so that I could go to Disneyland on Friday.

Here I am helping Mommy pack.


Disneyland was SOOO much fun!  I got to go on the "It's a Small World" ride twice...I really liked that ride.  I also LOVED driving in the race car at Autopia.  Mommy was a trooper and waited in line with me, but once Daddy returned from riding his own roller coaster ride, Mommy gave up her spot for Daddy.





Look at me...no hands!

Another first for me was trying a churro.

After the first bite, I couldn't wait to get another one.  Yum!
Mommy also let me try a chocolate covered frozen banana.  Double yum!








When I saw Uncle Michael eating popcorn, I ate some too.
Here are Alyssa and I in our strollers.  Look, we're holding hands!  Well, kind of.








We liked chasing each other around.

The following day, we met up with Great Uncle Kai and Great Auntie.  I haven't seen them in a long time, and they were excited to see me again.

That night, I met up with a lot of my uncles and aunties again, and my cousin Alyssa!  Every time Alyssa saw me, she said, "EH!"  I think that's how she says my name. 

Did I mention that we like chasing each other around?

Here we are with Uncle Eric.













Here's a big group picture with all of us.  I'm saying "cheese," which is why my eyes are so small.

The next morning (and our last day), we met up with Great Uncle James and Great Auntie Cindy for brunch.  I warmed up to them pretty quickly.




On the way home, we stopped by this place called Harris Ranch, and there was a Easter Bunny there.  I didn't want to take a picture with the one we had at daycare, but with Daddy by my side, I was willing to take a picture with this one.

The week after, I went back to daycare, and I apparently forgot that I was only suppose to pee in the potty, so my parents decided to only train me at home first.  I guess that's to be expected, as there are so many things going on at daycare.

Here I am in my underwear at home...peek-a-boo!


On one of the weekends, it was SUPER hot.  Mommy suggested that I play with the water table in our backyard and I had a blast.










We did have a play date with the July babies on Sunday that weekend.  Here's a pic of me, Ryan, and Lucas, though it's hard to see who is who.  I'm the one on the left.


The really cool thing about this particular weekend (according to my parents) is that I started telling them I needed to pee, and then would wait until they took me.  I would even stop while I was playing (at home) to tell them I needed to go.  My parents are SOOO excited and proud of me...it has taken me about 2 weeks to get to this point.  I don't see what the big deal is, but I'm happy to comply.  Now if only I will start telling the teachers at daycare that I need to go.  We'll see when I feel like doing that.

  1. Disneyland?! Wow, Zach will be so jealous!

    Potty training is always fun. It comes in spurts. Sometimes you think they've almost got it, and then they lose interest. But life gets soo much easier once they're out of diapers. No more worrying about bringing the diaper bag! Of course, with the other baby coming, you're going to have a diaper bag anyways....

    Good luck!

    1. True about the diaper bag. But if I could just change one kid's diaper instead of two, that'll make my day. :)

  2. Road trip, Disneyland, seeing aunts and uncles, learning how to drive, now that's the best! Wait a minute. Hold on about the driving part! You are barely even potty trained yet!

  3. Hi Elliot!! I'm so proud of your potty skills. Alyssa misses you and wants to play with you some more. Can you ask your mommy and daddy to come down and visit again? Keep up the good work and Uncle Mike will take you to It's A Small World again!! Love you.
