PEE PEE IN THE POTTY

Liam is working on his skills peeing in the big potty. He decided to completely skip his training potty because he wanted to pee pee like Mommy on the big one.


Now this is great but don't think we're 100% spoiled. He does still poo poo in his pants. Doesn't like to talk about that one until it's too late.

STAIRMASTER

Liam is well behaved but he has had a instances where his will has simply been stronger than ours.

A example of his good behavior would be the garbage and the cupboards in the kitchen. A few times early on after he started walking he had tried to take something out of the garbage or take a glass plate out of a cupboard. We sternly told him "NO" and he has really never had a problem following that rule.

An example of the middle road would be hitting. He's had more than one instance of hitting him Momma and although he has relapsed it's obvious he knows when he has done wrong and he is quick to apologize.

An example of something we have just had to live with are the stairs. When we tell him not to go on the stairs he laughs at us because he knows it's a joke. We can't stop him and HE is the one that tells us "NO!" The kid has taken down any gate we've tried to put up and he now refuses to take rides down the stairs. Liam even gets offended if you try to offer him your hand. About all we can do is keep a close a eye and let him become a big boy on his own.

*Notice what he says at the start of the video. It's because I offered him my hand out of view from the video.
**Obviously this video was taken before the haircut.

CHOP SHOP

I'm sure you'll find it hard to accept that I didn't want my boy to get his hair cut. I've been sporting a 1/2 inch or less for the last 10 years but I actually liked Liam's shaggy look. Jamie called an intervention a few days ago and took him for a trim. She admits, "my worst day ever with Liam", as expected, he was not appreciative of the attention to his head.

Despite that, the cut was finished and I gotta say, hair washing is much easier now.
