Breaking News . . .

Just in: Henry Cameron Freestone is potty trained!!!! (At least for #1, anyway.)
Three cheers for Henry.
Hip hip, hurray! Hip, hip, hurray! Hip, hip hurray!

It all started last week after a swim at the pool. We came home and right before baths he declared he was going to go pee pee in the potty. Whoa, what!?! He tried, he did it, and was SO so SO happy.

Henry helping me carry Theo's gear to the pool--such a gentleman.

Since that post-pool pee pee he has had only 2 accidents and he is so proud of himself. We even took him to church in under ware and he went potty twice--loving the loud flush of the church toilet--and had no accidents.
He says:
No more bottom owies.
No more baby diapers.
I'm a big boy.
I'm like my friends.
I can wear under ware!!

Of course the kid has to match his under ware to the character he is for the day (or moment), so can you guess which under ware he's wearing?


and Lightning McQueen!
Check out that tail fin on his back--he insisted on that one.
We sure do love our Henry.

Yay, Yay, Yay!!! He should tell Alaster the next time he sees him. Aly would give him a high five for sure!

By the way those pictures of him carrying the gear are too cute!
