Beckett got cookies tonight!

(Long post for my sake so I don't forget when I finally make him a baby book!)
Honestly, I haven't been too concerned with potty training Beckett. Bradley, of course, wants him potty trained before Baby Sister gets here in October but I have always heard to just wait until they show signs they are ready. We bought a baseball potty and put it across from our toilet. He started sitting on it before bath but didn't seem to care or understand what he was doing. Over the last week Beckett has told me more that he wanted to potty but usually just when I was...It's been a little annoying seeing as he wants to be naked when he sits on it and he never does anything in it. HOWEVER, today was different. He told me he wanted to potty and since I was going to change his clothes anyway I let him get naked. I wasn't paying much attentions since nothing ever has happened. He chose to straddle the toilet this particular time and was grunting. I looked down and saw drops! We yelled for Bradley and had a clapping session. So as exciting as that was imagine my surprise when he climbed out of the bathtub tonight and pooped. (Half in the potty and then half on the floor when he started walking around.) I was actually multitasking and talking on the phone so again not paying attention when this all started. (Hmmm...maybe that's why he's doing it!) After we flushed that he used it again to potty! So from zero to three times in one day. I think I figured out he likes the clean up part because I let him help rinse it out but hey if that works!
Could be a month before it happens again but we had cookies tonight to celebrate!!!!

Striking the potty pose!

Follow the leader...

Over Memorial Day my cousin Julianne brought her two boys down from Iowa. Aidan, Ethan and Beckett LOVED playing with them and Cameron.

The two pictures below are a little ironic. We use the phrase "Monkey see, monkey do" a lot around here. Usually Beckett is doing whatever someone else is doing. However, the big kids got bored after dinner and started playing Follow the Leader. Guess who got to be the leader!
Beckett had so much fun. I don't think he quite understood what was going on but he loved every minute of it!

Easter 2010: Better late than never, right?

Getting some help from daddy...Pretty sure Bradley found the most eggs!

I love my nephew BUT he's the worst egg hunter ever!

Anybody seen an egg?

Yoga with Poppy

My mom taught my dad a few yoga moves that he's been doing at night to help with his flexiblity. Beckett quickly decided that yoga is a piece of cake and joined in the fun!

Not sure the exact name for this one...but doubt Poppy enjoyed it.

Beckett in the Snow

Beckett might hate cold water but he sure loves the snow! He threw a fit when we came back inside. At one point, I had shoes thrown at me.

These are for Foo Foo

Aidan and Ethan after Ethan's first basketball game. He scored 2 goals and was hysterical to watch. When his team scored he threw his arms up in celebration and when the other team scored he threw his arms up and gave some "Ah man!' drama!
Beckett's trademark "Funny Face" that he does on command.

Practicing for the future we hope!
Foo Foo got Beckett the Nuggets windsuit for Christmas. He looked like the real deal and Bradley even got stopped by some older gentleman wanting to know where we got it.

What a fun Christmas 2009!

We had a very fun and busy Christmas! We spent Christmas Eve at Bebe and Pops with Granny, the Gilmore's and the Coates. After doing presents at our house Christmas morning we went back to open presents with Bebe and Pops and the Gilmores and ate Christmas lunch. Then we drove to Hot Springs and did Christmas with BamBam and Poppy, the Kings, Foo Foo and Jo Jo, Aunt Mel and Ron, the Coverts, and the Tuckers. It was wild and crazy and Beckett didn't want to miss a thing! This Christmas will go down and the Christmas all we did was play games! From Farkle, to ping pong, to Big Twos, to Nertz, to Wii, to Smart***, WE PLAYED IT ALL!!!! Here are a few pictures I had.
Beckett waiting his turn to play in the Ping Pong tournament. Congrats to Jennifer for the win!
