I'm a big boy now!

Jamie turned 17 months old yesterday.  Pretty soon we're going to be counting down to 2 which is way to hard for this mama to believe!  Did you hear that time?  Slow down!  And contrary to my husband's beliefs he's not throwing up gang signs.  We've been working on counting, so now when you say one....he says "TWO!" and tries to hold up his fingers.  He seems to favor his thumb and pointer finger....just like my mom.  What a goof!  Here's what else we've been up too this month.

And just when I thought he couldn't act any more grown up....yesterday he walked into the bathroom, tugging at his pants and pointing at the toilet saying "poo-poo mama, poo-poo!"  I about died.  Just to see what would happen, we actually sat him up on the potty.  Nothing happened, not that I'm surprised, but the fact that he's even shown any interest or understanding at all has this mama excited!  So just for fun we busted out the ole potty and set it up so he could get used to seeing it around. 
I'm not pulling out the big boy undies anytime soon, but what the heck, might as well get the ball rolling!

I think it's safe to say I no longer have a baby.
*sigh*

Gang signs... love it. Cloth diaper kiddos are supposed to potty train faster than others, right? I'm looking forward to that in another year or so!

My goodness! Slow that kid down! I guess if he's going to grow up, he might as well use the potty, huh? Can't wait to see you guys this weekend!

Such a cutie! That is great that he has already acknowledged going to the potty, sounds like he will be a fast learner!

Go Jamie!!! I know it seems like such a big step into him being a big boy but believe me...you'll love it when he's fully potty trained. So excited for this weekend!!! YAY!!!

Such a big boy!! And I love that the potty story. My two cents - embrace it! My brother's 26 month old has no interest - but part of that is because his momma doesn't want him to grow up!

I love that picture of Jaime! He is growing up so fast. That's nuts that he's getting ready for potty training. You've got a smart one there!

Agh! Even mentioning the two year mark is so crazy to me! I love that we've been blog friends for so long! I cannot believe Jamie is already a little boy, no longer a baby! He is so freaking cute!
