A New Approach

We have been trying to get Liam more and more interested in the potty, but haven't had much success. When he was about 1 1/2 he was really into it and went all the time, but lately, not so much. He knows how to go, it's getting him to not be so lazy and just use his diaper. So, we've decided to make him a potty chart and after a certain amount of times of using the potty chair, he will get a prize! He was super excited about it last night when we were making the chart, but has yet to use the potty chair. We'll see how this works out. He keeps going to the chart, pointing to it, then to the potty chair and then says "prize!" Let us know if you all have done anything different that has worker. We are open for any suggestions!

We finally made it to Disneyland! We went with my sister and her family along with my brother and sister! Since Matt and Lisa are moving to Belgium for 4 years, we thought it would be a good time to go. We had a blast. We stayed in California Adventure most of the time, but spend about an hour and a half in Disneyland. Liam was in love with the Toy Story Mania ride, we went twice, and he liked the Ferris wheel too. It was nice weather and it wasn't too crowded, until we went to Disneyland. It was great to spend the day as a family. Liam woke up this morning telling me about the Toy Story ride and him meeting Woody!

Padres Game

On Monday, Matt, Lisa and I went to a Padres game. Deron was supposed to go, but as luck would have it, he got sick on his vacation. With the rainy, cold weather, we didn't want to risk him getting worse. Nevertheless, we had lots of fun, and enjoyed a big whopping by the Padres against the Braves. The final score, 17-2! I forgot how much I enjoy going to these kind of events. While it might not have been appropriate for Liam yet, since it was sold out, I think this is something we can enjoy when he gets older. I got him a Padres hat that he has not taken off since I brought it home!

Easter was much different this year than last year since Liam is older and can understand a bit more about what this day represents. We went to church in the morning, then out for lunch with my family. It was nice to have Lisa, Matt and Emma with us this year. Then we came home for naps, then headed off to Deron's parents house for an egg hunt and dinner. The boys went crazy when we went outside to look for eggs. They were running all over the place. Last year, we had to lead Liam to where the eggs were and help him pick them up. This year, he was a pro!

Liam and I colored our eggs today for Easter. We found a kit that make monster eggs, and it was too cute to pass up. Liam was too little for this last year, so I was excited to do it with him this year. He was so excited about all the colors. When he climbed up in the chair he started naming all the colors out. What a smart kid! Here are some pictures of our egg coloring!
