Josiah Facts

  • I love when Josiah wakes up in the morning or from his nap and he likes to cuddle with me!! This is probably my favorite time of the day and I treasure every second of it! I know before too long he will not even want me around!

  • Josiah has been peeing on the potty at least 1-2 times a day for a few months now. I am not pressuring him by any means, but if he tells me he has to go we rush to the potty! He is getting so big!

  • He is definitely into the terrible twos. We have good days and bad days. I am trying different things so hopefully I will figure out how to control his anger. I can deal with the temper tantrums, they don't bother me, but when he hits that annoys me more than ever!

  • He is also in a stage where if we get in big crowds he kind of freaks out. He clinches on to me and will not talk/play with anyone else.

  • Josiah loves to be outside!!! We are out there almost all day! We are either playing with the water hose or at the park!

  • He LOVES baths. His new thing is to lay flat on his back and "float". He is so particular about everything! There cannot be anything in the bathtub while he "floats". The only thing he hates about taking baths is getting out of the bath...this is a big time fight that happens every night.

  • He also LOVES to brush his teeth/play with the water/eat toothpaste. This is another fight that we deal with when trying to get him to quit brushing his teeth/playing in the water/ eating toothpaste.

  • When he stays the night away he sleeps in a big boy bed, but we haven't converted his crib at our house yet...maybe soon?

  • He only takes a binky at nap and bedtime and this will be coming to an end by his second birthday.

  • His birthday is in less than 2 months and he will be 2!!! OMG..the time has flown by!!!

  • He is so funny these days he makes me laugh constantly throughout the day and even though we have temper tantrums and he tells me "NO" 400 times a day I LOVE every minute of it and would not change anything!

  • Another AWESOME thing....he has always called me "momma" which is so sweet, but now he calls me "mommy" and it melts my heart every.single.time!!!!! It is music to my ears!

I swear sometimes I think we have the same child!! Ha! I was reading your list and thinking, "yep, sounds like Lyla" on almost everything!! It's so funny how they go through such similar stages! But you're right, the mommy instead of momma thing is awesome! :-)

Haha that is too funny!! Is Lyla throwing fits?! How do y'all deal with it? We have tried everything and nothing seems to help! Hope the temper tantrums go away soon!!!

This is the sweetest thing ever!!! Sorry about the temper tantrums, I can't imagine how tough that's gonne be...

Cassie it is very tough, but I keep trying to remind myself it is mostly because he is frustrated because he can't tell me what is going on.
