One Giant Step for Lawson!

Literally, one giant step! We were in his room practicing using his new potty, which we'll get to in just a minute, and he took a step!!! I was so thrilled! Of course, he sat down right after the first step, but it was step. He actually ended up taking his one step several times throughout the day and it was just as thrilling for both of us each time! Maybe he'll actually manage to walk before Dustin goes out on detachment again!

As for the potty, I ordered a baby bjorn little potty for him and it arrived in the mail today. I'm not so much hoping to potty train him at this point, as introduce him to the concept of going like a big boy. We've had great success already. I sat him in the chair and went through a book for a little bit and he actually peed in the potty! I clapped and cheered for him and he seemed quite intrigued by the whole thing, so maybe if we're lucky, this will become a trend! Here's the little guy on his brand new potty!


  1. Hi Kimberly- thank you so much for the thoughts and prayers. Sam told me last year you had a little boy- I was so happy to hear! Lawson is such a cutie!:)

  2. Good to hear from you! Thank you! I'll be checking back on your blog to see how everything is going!

  3. Way to go Lawson! You look like your becoming such a big boy these days! Kimberly - I think it's great that he'll sit on the potty at this age! Kenendy had no interest until she was two - way to go!
