Just before Mack turned 28 months old we officially crossed the hurdle of potty training!!! At home he had been doing really well during the day but anytime we left or at night time he would still wear a pull-up but over vacation (of all times) he did not want to wear a "diaper" anywhere! Once we got home he decided he was not wearing one to bed either. He actually wakes himself up in the night if he has to go potty, thankfully! Although he is potty-trained, he still needs assistance as he can't quite get his pants back up after he's taken them off and he does still sit most the time but we're working on the standing - I think daddy should be helping in this area...
Mack's new favorite movie is "Cars" (the first one) and loves reenacting scenes with his own cars. First words out of his mouth when daddy gets home is "hi daddy, want to play cars?" He will line them up, make a circle, sort by color, categorize them according to which ones he thinks are the fastest and of course there's the occasional crash pile up. He's definitely ALL boy!
Mimicking happens quite often with Mack too. He likes to mimic daddy going to work (especially when he rides his bike to work, Mack gets on his bike and tells me he's going to work). He mimic's the baby's squeals, mommy saying "you're not listening" and "no, no, no baby" amongst many others.
Went on vacation to Kansas City over Spring Break, Mack loved getting to go on the airplane! We had a great time visiting all the family!
