The moment we all have been waiting for......

Joshua CAN speak!!
For those of you that don't know Joshua, he is 22 mo and baby #5. With 4 older siblings, who needs to use words!? Screaming works just as well, sometimes better...
Some of his favorite words are; puppy, wuv vue(love you), bye bye, eww (when getting a diaper change), Em (for sister Emily), shot gun!(when getting in the van), on, off, mommy, daddy, night night, thank you and one of his favorites.....OUT! :o)
He is learning more words daily by copying what his older sibling are saying. With each passing day there seems to be less screaming.....YES!! :o)
Over the weekend a friend of dh's let him borrow his GPS. We have been doing some Geocaching. The first time i went with them, it was so funny to see Joshua run off with the boys searching for the cache, like he knew 'exactly' what he was doing! Then he would stop and take my hand and lead me along.
Next is potty training! He hates wearing a diaper! Every chance he gets, he takes his diaper off. several times he has taken his diaper off and ran into the bathroom, lifts the toilet seat...I help him sit on the toilet, but the next step still needs work. Could we be diaper free by the end of summer!? :o)
