Today we were able to meet Stephen's cousin, Catlynn Kovacs. He's in town for a few more weeks checking out with the army up at Fort Hood. He just returned in January from his 2nd tour in Iraq. So we visited and talked for a few hours at home and then drove Catlynn downtown around the capital building and University of Texas. Then we headed over and got some lunch at the Hula Hut.
Madeline really took to Catlynn and enjoyed horsing around and being silly with him.
It was a yummy lunch on Lady Bird Lake. We enjoyed getting to know Catlynn. We plan on getting together with him again next weekend when his wife Patricia comes to visit for the weekend. Going to go to the Austin Rodeo!
Also this weekend I started potty training with James...
What do ya think?.... Chip-pen-cutie...or
...Village lil People? :)
So I'm sorta of going with the same training I did with Madeline. Basically sticking James in underwear so he will feel the wetness, and having him go sit on the potty 1-2 times every hour. I also reminded him how "yucky" it is to go pee-pee and poopy in his big boy underwear. And to let me know when he needs to go potty. Well on Friday we went through 5 pairs of underwear, and on Saturday we went through 3 pairs. Today since we were out and about I put him in pull ups, which he did pee in because they feel the same as a diaper and the wetness does not bother him. So the plan is to go forward with undies during the days and pull ups at night time. Hopefully soon it'll click that he needs to tell me he needs to go potty and hold it until he makes it to the potty. Cause right now he's telling me right as he starts to go.
