We are officially out of diapers!! Nathan has not had an accident for a few days and notifies me every time he has to go potty by shouting at the top of his lungs "Ma,I go pee pee!" He has even been waking up in the morning dry. YEAH!! He is quite funny about his bowel movements. He says, "Ma, I go "sniff" "sniff"" Yep He crunches up his nose in a very cute way and sniffs two times. It makes me laugh each time! :-)

I think graduating from Diapers will be much easier than empty nesting. However, it is a strange feeling when one phase of life ends. I've had a child in diapers for the past 11 years 4 months. No more carrying around a diaper bag, I can re arrange my bathroom to get rid of the changing counter, and the diaper pail can be pitched! How fun!!

A few months ago I bought my first purse since about 1998. I bought it just big enough for my stuff and 1 diaper. Now I can have an even slimmer purse!

What's next..... puberty.................. AHHHHHHH!!
