A couple of things that should not go unmentioned happened today:
*Gordon counted to 100 today without asking me, "What comes after 29? What comes after 39? etc"
*Gordon came downstairs and showed me that he had written his name. I asked to take a picture of it, but he wouldn't let me. He has been able to spell his name for a long time and he has written his name when I sat next to him, showing him how to form the letters but today he wrote it 100% on his own.
*Ellis is potty training. Last night while he was sitting on the toilet I told him that I wanted him go yucky (I guess he calls his BM yucky because that is what I said whenever I changed his diaper.) in the toilet. He looked at me for a minute and said, "I can do that!" And he did. He has been wearing underwear since Monday.
