So although Brigham is not quite ready to potty train I got him a little seat so that he could get used to the idea. He is starting to show a little interest, but the wide hole in the seat scared him so he was so excited when we sat him on the toilet with a seat his size. He kept telling Tyler and I, “I doing it! I doing it!”. Of course, he didn’t really do anything. But I still feel like our little guy is getting so big! I think we have a long way to go till he understands the whole “using the potty” concept, but it was still exciting to see him sitting on the toilet all proud of himself.

Last weekend Tyler and I were finally able to escape to my parents cabin up north for the weekend. It seems that every time we want to go it ends up snowing like crazy, which is intimidating to us since we’ve only been in snow a few times. Anyway, we decided to brave the snow and drove up friday afternoon. The cabin looked beautiful covered in snow- I should have taken pictures of it! It only took us a couple of minutes of trying to tromp through 10+ inches of snow in running shoes to realize we were going to need snow boots! We were so lucky to find shoes in all three of our sizes at the gas station down the road! Brigham loved his boots and tromped all around the cabin in them that night. On Saturday we finally had the nerve to go out into the cold. We drove up the canyon and found a small area to get out and play. It took some prompting but we finally got Brig to let us put him down in the snow. He and Tyler had fun picking up big chunks of snow and throwing them at each other and me! We didn’t last long in the cold, but we had fun and were happy to show Brigham snow for the first time!
Upstairs in our “loft” (it’s more of a landing, but we are grateful for the space and call it our loft) we have a couch and chair and a small TV for Brigham’s movies. Lately Brigham prefers to sit in the chair while he watches his shows. The other day I found him curled up, sound asleep in his favorite chair. I haven’t seen him in this position since he was tiny (not that he really ever was!). It was so cute I took six pictures that all look the same... here’s the best one!
