Wyatt: No Longer a Baby

We have been working on potty training lately and without much success. I think I missed a good potty training window when I was pregnant, I was just too huge and tired to deal with it. Now I'll say, "Don't you want to go to the bathroom in the toilet, like a big boy?" and he'll say, "no, I'm okay, I'll just wear a diaper." So I've been trying to lure him to use the toilet by getting him great underwear. He really likes them, wears them around for a while until he pees in them and asks for his diaper back. Sometimes he'll just go into the bathroom and go all by himself then ask for his candy reward but it's not consistent enough for me to leave his diaper off all the time.

Wyatt has found the joy of wearing a tie to church. One Sunday we couldn't find his tie so he ended up wearing one of Willie's bow ties. This was the day they took pictures of kids in the primary. I just love this picture. I later found his tie under the couch cushion so he's back to wearing a tie more his size.

Wyatt gave a scripture and prayer in Primary today. It was great, he brought up his bible and opened it and I whispered Matt 11:30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. He said it perfectly followed by a great prayer. He did his prayer himself and just loved using the microphone.

    So freaking cute. Love the look.

    Don't worry about the diaper thing. I think our Calder was practically 4 before he fully divested himself of the diaper.

    What a big boy! We are so proud of him starting to move toward giving up the diaper routine. It won't take long now. We printed out the photo with the bow tie - and I'm going to frame it along side a photos of Lynn with his bow tie. So cute. Love, Oma Jewel

    Wyatt looks so cute! Ella enjoyed seeing him and maybe this will motivate her toward the bathroom too. I love the bow tie.

    That picture of Wyatt in the bowtie kills me. Ben and I must have laughed for five minutes solid.

    Good luck with the potty training. We finally resorted to telling Abe that when he peeps in his undies (even his diapers) it makes his blanket all gross so we have to take it away to wash it. Not a total lie, and it finally got things going.

    Oh the world of potty training, I do not envy you. Mckay took about 6 months. I think I started him way to early. He ended up doing it right around his third birthday!

    I love the hiking photos. I am amazed at the hiking abilities.
