Changes

A few major changes in the works for us. First off, the other afternoon the boys were waking from their naps. We generally let them chatter for a bit and then go in their room to get them. I hear a thump and then Jaxon opens the door and walks out. Less than 2 seconds later (and no thump!) -Wyatt follows right behind him! Jaxon is the one who fell out last time and we have seen him stretch up and lean over the crib sides before. So the crib tents are up now. Only Jax's gets zipped, but the other two tents are ready for action if needed.

Also, we bought potty chairs. Jaxon occasionally tells me when he is pooping, so I figured I would take that as a sign to start teaching him. They already ready a little potty book and sometimes I ask Jax if he would like to sit on the potty. He loves it so far, but it is still a novelty. Tonight before putting them in the bath, we sat them on the potty chairs and Lucas went pee! It was just by chance, I know... I don't even think he knew, but it was a start.

Those crib tents would have come in handy! I got worried about all of the thumps we were hearing and transitioned them into a big bed. Now they use that as a trampoline and we still hear thumps. Guesss they are a little closer to the ground now though;)

When Matthew and Natalie were little (around 1 1/2 years old) we started sitting them on the potty chair before going in the bath every night. It just got them use to the idea, when they went we gave them a sticker and made a big deal. TRUST ME, when they are ready it will be easy.
