Potty Training and ALL - Giveaway!

Congrats to lucky commenter # 3 and # 8, i will be emailing you shortly!

Potty Training can be messy work. Today was day one of a three day program that we are trying out with Liam. I must say that I think he is doing a great job so far. Maybe 50% of the time he is able to go in the potty and not in his pants. And EVERY time he has gone in his pants, he is the one who tells I know that HE knows he has gone pee. Hopefully we can make even more progress tomorrow!
Well, the good folks over at ALL are helping with the potty training. They have sent me a bottle of All Oxi-Active laundry detergent to try out and to help clean all those 'yucky' wet and dirty underwear! I have already done a couple of loads of laundry and will likely be doing some more as we continue the potty training process, and so far it has worked great!
all Oxi-Active by all Laundry.

Brookfield Zoo

We had such a fun time going to the Zoo on Friday. Here are some pictures of all the fun! Liam watching the gorillas eat salad for lunch.

Liam wanted to see everything! When he got to the Penguins he kept on saying "Happy Feet"

Watching the fishes and penguins swimming...

Our very own baby kangaroo!

Loved the hippo and was doing a 'hippo dance' for everyone.

Its hard work to see everything! Very exhausting!

Liam and Daddy watching the Lions. Roar!!!

Chasing the birds, but not the geese because they might bite!

The Children's Zoo was fun. Liam loved petting the goats!
Watching the chickens. cluck cluck!It was such a long day! He was asleep the minute his butt hit the car seat!
