Gavin said his first word tonight! Brian yelled at me from the other room to let me know that Gavin said his first word. I have to admit....I thought he was full of it, but low and behold....Gavin said "ball"! He is talking up a storm lately! I got two short videos....he is such a ham!
The first video he is telling us a story and if you listen closely to the second video, you will hear him say "ball" several times!

Being the planner that I am, I'd been planning everything out. Looked for signs Macie was ready...check! Talked to Miss Julie....check! Got advice from friends...check! Husband trained and on board...check! Panties, pullups, and m&ms bought...check! Schedule cleared for entire weekend...check!
After breakfast this morning, we showed her a potty training dvd we had with some songs and cute cartoons on it. She was pumped! She was ready! Then the reality sank in....dun dun dun!!! (Yes I'm being a bit dramatic) Macie loved to wear her big girl panties and she had no problem sitting on the potty. In fact, we spent a lot of time reading books, talking, and even painting her toes!
She poops on the potty no problem and in fact went several times today. Peeing, however, is a WHOLE different story. She went 1 and 1/2 times in the potty, but peed on herself every other time. 5 pairs of panties later, we were ready to put a pullup on for bed time. We decided to put panties on her when she was awake and a pullup on her when she was sleeping. Our hope was that she would feel the pee and not like it. Well, we were right, but she just wanted to be changed right away. Two times we were so frustrated because she sat on the potty for a while, didn't go, but as soon as she got up she would pee.
Now I should note that Macie was extremely whiny and clingy from the moment she woke up this morning. I'm not quite sure what was going on. I'm by no means giving up. I still think that she is ready to potty train. I'm hoping that tomorrow will be a better day! I also think that when she goes to daycare will help because other kids use the potty there.
I'll keep you posted...pray for us!

In other news...Gavin waved for the first time tonight! Aunt Beth and Uncle Wil came to visit and drop off Macie's birthday present. When they got here, it looked like Gavin waved at them, but I thought it was a fluke. A few minutes later, he started waving at Uncle Wil! What a big boy!

I'm so glad that I went last night because I had a blast. There weren't a lot of people there, but it is was enough to make it a fun night. We ended up going to Fox and Hound. Brian and I took full advantage of the fact that we had an overnight babysitter and we went to Hacienda first for a margarita and some chips and cheese. Then we went to the Fox. I haven't been able to let loose like that for almost 3 years! It was good to see people. There were at least 5 pregnant women there and many more had kids so it was fun to share stories. After the Fox, we went to Steak-N-Shake for a late (after midnight) dinner. We made it home about 1:30. I used to go out like that every weekend. Now, I can barely handle one night of it! Yes it was fun, but I think I like my simple life much better!
