We had a wonderful trip this week to Boca Raton. We stayed with GG but also visited with Poppop Joe and Mommom Ev, as well as some other friends who live in the area. Everyone kept apologizing for the cold weather but compared to the feet of snow we left behind we thought the weather was just fine. We visited a nature preserve where I had promised Daniel we were going to see animals. Too bad that the turtles, snakes, fish and sharks we saw didn't count. He was hoping for lions, tigers, goats and cows. Guess next time we'll have to hit the zoo!! We also got a chance to swim in GG's pool. It took Daniel a while to get used to the water but he was getting pretty brave by the time we got out. It was very nice to get away for a couple days, especially in the winter.
This winter has been crazy here in Philadelphia. Many winters we get nothing but a flurry but this winter we are really getting slammed. For example, this weekend we got about 2 feet of snow! The scary part is we are expecting more later in the week. Here are some pictures and video's of Daniel and the snow.
Daniel has on occasion sat on the toilet but nothing has ever happened while he was there. We have a ring to go on the grownup toilet with Elmo on it so he likes the idea of sitting there. Sometimes he tells me he needs to poop on the potty to try and delay bedtime. This morning while we were getting dressed he went and got his potty seat and told me he wanted to pee on the potty. So we went in the bathroom, I put him on there and VOILA he went!! Very exciting!! Although I am not quite ready for full time potty training yet. It was a happy step in the right direction:-) His favorite part is the toilet paper and then getting to flush!
