June 22, 2009 - Day 13...

Pooping with Spiderman?!?

Seriously, Matt would not get off the pot. This is the 2nd time we've seen him on the potty and clearly he was putting on a show for mama and papa. He actually scooted a few times (with the pot under his butt) this way or that way to get a toy. He is hilarious. Finally, mama had had enough - I told him the old saying, "Poop or get off the pot"!! I tried really hard to upload the video clip but it wouldn't work - sorry!

Just before the poopie session, it was bathtime and they put him, Aldazhan (I call him Aldy) and Katya (little Russian girl) in a white, free standing tub. I was not so sure if pics were allowed thus I didn't get any, but I sure wish I had. He clearly LOVES the water. He was on the end of the tub farthest from the spray hose and he was crouched down really low trying to make the most of whatever water he could find. They don't plug it up so it just drains while they spray the little ones down. Matt was all smiles and he and Aldy actually were so excited about bath time that both of them slide at one point on the angled side but neither of them skipped a beat. Meanwhile, little Katya just stood holding on to the tub while the two wild men made the most of it. It was precious. Matt is so tall that he can reach the soap that sits on the sink beside the tub and he grabbed all the soap he could find. Next time, the camera is coming out!!!!

Eating Borsh - a two course meal!!! These kids eat good...
