I'm a big kid now!

Well our little Tytan has finally conquered the toilet! He has been great at going pee for a month or so, but the whole #2 has been a bit dramatic. I don't know why it is so scary, but the poor kid just couldn't bring himself to do it. No amount of bribing was doing the trick. Even the poo-poo dance didn't do more than make him giggle at us. Then one day Lloyd decided instead of us coming up with what we thought would be a good prize he would ask Tytan what he wanted. After a few hummms and hahhhhs the final decision was a yellow bike. Ok so now we had the bait. So we went down to Walmart let him pick out what bike he wanted and told him when he could do his business on the toilet the bike was his. I will add that the original bike that he picked out was $80 and we strategically guided him to the "rocket bike" for $38. CHA CHING and the rest is history!!!  Not bad, potty trained by 2 and a half.

This is his new "picture" smile!

And now we are flexing our muscles

For some reason this is the position of choice. Hey buddy what ever works!

Last Monday night we went and got the bike and at 6:40 am Tuesday morning I woke up to Tytan breathing in my face telling me that he wanted to go ride his bike. He hasn't wanted to get off since. The snow hasn't even slowed him down.

Yay Tytan! Cute pictures. Luke used to sit backwards like that to go potty when he was 2 also.

Yippee and Horray!!!! We really don't care how they sit on the potty just as long as they actually do sit on it. Good for you Ty-Ty. I can't wait to see you again because I miss you all so much. The naked boy pictures are so all they need is spray on tans.
