Our Latest Adventure: Potty Training

So, our little prince is now a whopping 14 months!
Wow, how time flies!
He is walking amazingly well, and has been off the bottle for a while. 
He also tries to take his diaper off when he is wet....
So I came to a conclusion:
time is upon us!

Here is the plan:
we take him to potty A LOT!
His potty plays music, so that's an added bonus
the really great surprise that Nana got him: Hershey's kisses after he uses the potty!

Its been 6 days, and he is doing surprisingly well.
For the past 2 days, the only accidents have been at naptime and night time.
I'm quite impressed!

Seeing how much he is growing, I cannot believe how tiny and fragile he was.
It makes me think of a paper I was given by the doctor, while I was pregnant.
This is what it said:

A Newborn's Conversation With God
A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?" God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."
The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven, I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy," God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. You will feel your angel's love and be very happy."
Again, the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?" God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweetest words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."
"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?" God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."
"Who will protect me?" God said, "Your angel will defend you , even if it means risking its life."
"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore." God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you."
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name!"
God said, "You will simply call her MOMMY."

This was the most amazing thing for a young lady who was so unsure of how successful of a Mother she would be to hear. I knew nothing about kids, but this helped me know that I would always figure it out.
Even if I couldn't, our angels would help us!
