Mack still loves to be my little helper whether it's cleaning (which he likes to initiate a lot), folding laundry or helping with the baby. He adores his little brother and has finally realized he's the baby that was in mommy's tummy. He likes to hold him and hug him and has associated that when he's crying, he needs milk, lol! He gets on a laughing kick when Parker has the hiccups, and lets us know we need to "clean" him if he toots. He's already a good big brother, we just pray that these boys would be the best of friends growing up.
We are still working on the potty training... at home Mack does great if he doesn't have a pull-up on but when he does he oftentimes will go in his diaper. He does fairly well at telling us when we are out and about but if he is in someone else's care (ie: church nursery) he won't tell them or he will but after he's already gone. We didn't want to push him, especially with our newest addition so we've really let him go at his own pace. Considering he's not even 2 years old yet we weren't too concerned, he's initiated and made incredible progress for his age as it is. I don't think it'll be much longer before we can do away with pull-ups altogether, although night-time will be the next thing to tackle.
Mack still LOVES anything to do with music and frequently asks us to sing or play music so he can sing, dance and "play" his guitar (which usually consist of whatever he has in his hands at the time). We're thinking of doing a guitar themed 2nd birthday for him and actually getting him a guitar he can play.
A few of Mack's favorite things are his cars, again anything to do with music, playing outside and going for walks.
Here's a few pictures for the month, some you may have seen already :)
