when we are trying to keep busy while rowan is away at school it seems like anything is fair game, including scaling furniture and climbing up the walls. literally. brinley makes enough noise on his own to fill a room. the fact that he rambles on and on to his stuffed animal friends (who don't usually respond) doesn't seem to bother him one bit. i think he has adapted to reigning while rowan is away. it makes for simpler times since he is more easily amused with games like peek-a-boo and pat-a-cake still! i am still missing having rowan away for so long but i have really been thankful with this alone time with brinley. it is amazing what a difference running errands is with one kid!
brinley is also fully potty trained now. it actually happened on accident. he turned 3 and that week we ran out of diapers and decided we wouldn't buy anymore and just give it a try. he had never shown much interest in the potty but when we told him the diapers where all gone he didn't have much choice. after 2 days and only 2 accidents he was completely sold on his big boy undies. we did do diapers at night but he has been waking up dry for weeks! we can't even believe how easy the transition was for him (considering we thought he would be somewhere near the age of 10 before this happened). haha! i guess kids adapt to change a lot more than we give them credit for.
