Yesterday, I got Caleb out of his crib in the morning and he said very plainly, "Mamma, I need to go pee pee." Now, we have 2 potties and we have been letting him explore it a bit. We have NOT been trying to push the potty idea at all though because he is only 20 months old! Well, since I was already drying my hair in Caleb's bathroom (Matt was still asleep), I figured that it wouldn't hurt to just take his diaper off and put him on the potty. Well....he went! Just like that! It was amazing!! Of course, my reaction made Caleb get this smug "yeah, I'm cool!" look on his face. Then we went in to wake up Daddy with the good news! We still aren't potty training or anything, but that is one less diaper I have to change!! :)

Other Caleb news: his vocabulary is seriously increasing by the hour! Today as Matt was reading him his My Big World book, Caleb identified a dolphin and a whale by name without any prompting! After Matt showed him a koala bear and had him say it, he was able to identify it by name (over an hour later) with me! I absolutely love this age (most of the time...) because you can literally watch the light bulb go off daily! It is so fun!

In all of your posts, I have been quite impressed with his vocabulary. Very impressive.
