As I was putting Eisley to bed I heard Emmett calling for me... repeatedly. Concerned that his calls maybe due to distress, I sped up Eisley's bedtime routine and went to find Emmett. I found him sitting on the toilet, "I'm going poopoo Mommy. I didn't go in my bedroom."
Yea! I was literally sitting in Eisley's room thinking, "Emmett has not had a bowel movement all day and here I've left him alone, diaperless, underwearless, pajamaless in his room. I will most certainly have a mess to clean up when I am done in here." Much to my surprise, delight and admiration, my dear little boy helped himself to the toilet. I am so proud.
Also, if you spent a day in our home, you would undoubtedly hear Emmett say, "I jus wanna be naket a lil bit." Whenever he's doing going to the bathroom, which by the way, requires the complete removal of pants AND underwear, he will declare, "I jus wanna be naket a lil bit" and off he runs with his sweet little hinder hanging out. Last night he desperately wanted to "jus be naket a lil bit" so I let him sleep in his birthday suit. He's gotta enjoy it before it gets all wrinkled! (Eric's Grandma GG said something about her "birthday suit" being "wrinkled" and it totally cracked me up. I have frequently stolen her joke. This time however, I will make sure she gets the credit.)
Another Emmett story. Today we went garage sale hopping. Emmett began naming the garage sales. "Now we're going to an Elephant Garage sale." We also attended a "Seal Garage sale", "Tiger Garage Sale", and "Lion Garage sale." I have no idea where that came from but it was certainly cute!
