These pictures were taken at about 5:00 pm today.  Do you notice anything unusual?
All three boys are still in the PJ's they wore last night.  Why do you ask?  Because we are potty training Deker and I thought it would be easiest to pull PJ's up and down rather than jeans.  Then around 11:30 when I noticed all three boys were still in PJ's, I decided why bother now.  Keagan thought it was pretty cool wearing pajama's all day.

So, how is potty training going? Really well (knock on wood).  Deker has not had one accident since yesterday at lunch.  My happiest moment today was when Keagan and Deker were outside playing today (yes, in their pajamas, coat & shoes minus socks) and I was inside feeding Bauer and I suddenly hear Deker at the door "Potty Mommy".  I opened the door, he sat on the potty chair, he went and then raced outside as soon as he washed his hands. 

We attempted potty in October, but after 2 1/2 days, there was no progress so we gave up.  Then last week, he started asking to wear underwear.  So, Wednesday afternoon when Andrew got home from work,we put Deker in underwear.  Then Thursday, all day we watched him and worked with him.  I was really nervous about it today with Andrew gone for the next two days, but I can see now, that I had nothing to worry about. 

I am thinking we will venture away from the house Saturday evening as soon as Andrew gets home from work.  Please wish us luck that Deker continues to do well and that he will stick with it.
