We've been at "Camp Nana" since last Friday. Chuck flew back home on Tuesday, and will be joining us again next week.
Our days our full of trips to local soft-serve ice cream shops (something that the DC Metro Area is SERIOUSLY lacking), playing in Nana and Papa's backyard, and of course, some trips to Target. We had a fun family BBQ on Sunday, and on Monday, Papa came with us to a sprinkler park. Once the kids are down, I've been able to catch up with some old friends in the evenings, and Aunt Sarah and I even went to the Dave Matthews Band concert on Tuesday. Christian has been having an absolute blast being the center of attention.
In addition to the usual language explosion that Christian always has when he's around my parents, we hit a MAJOR potty training milestone here. While at a little coffee shop, Christian turned to me and said "Mommy, I have to go pee pee. It's going to come, Mommy!". So, I asked him if he wanted to go sit on the potty. Sure enough, he followed me into the bathroom. I lined the top of the toilet with paper, plopped him on the bowl, and watched him go IN A PUBLIC BATHROOM. YEAH CHRISTIAN!
Christian also is now wearing his snazzy brown coil on his CI, which looks really nice with his light brown hair. We chose an all beige system, as he was our little bald man at 14 months when he was implanted. He's really proud of it, and has pointed to the coil several times and said "Mommy, my CI is brown! I'm a handsome boy". I am so happy that he likes it!
