Becoming Self-Sufficient

Today started off quite differently than yesterday.

Yesterday Jack threw a fit when he was told he should use the potty first thing when he gets up in the morning.

Today?  He happily marched into the bathroom, used the potty, and washed his hands without help.

Yesterday I had to wrangle him into his clothes for the day.

Today he picked out his own outfit in its entirety and dressed himself (shoes included).  This is a FIRST!

Yesterday wasn’t all bad.  We tried out a yellow bell pepper since he loves the red ones so much and he devoured the entire thing.  When prompted to use the potty and get ready for bed, he peed, washed his hands, and brushed his teeth all by himself.  I was rather blown away.

Gosh, my little boy is growing up.
