Speaking of milestones, I've been hesitating to call it for fear of jinxing things, but I think we're pretty much done with toilet training. About a month ago, Sprout more or less started just going on his own, & holding it all night. We had one week with a couple of 'accidents' when we were out & that was it. It just kind of happened--he's totally independent at home (except for the bum wiping--can't wait until he can do that properly himself) & when we're out, he tells me he needs to go & can hold it for a while until we get to a bathroom. I honestly expected a few more weeks of needing pull-ups & diapers & bought a few more packages, but they're just sitting unused in his drawer. I'll hang onto them for when his sister arrives, in case we have one of those regressions that I keep hearing about.

All in all, a fun afternoon. Sprout was totally spoiled with gifts--all really thoughtful & well-received. He got to see lots of his friends & four of his little cousins & we even had time to socialize a bit.
