Well, Josh finally went a whole day and stayed dry. I think he actually wore a pull-up part of the day and underwear the rest, but he was dry the whole day. We’d promised him he would get his own “red car” to drive down the street in. Abby and Jillian Kumor (or Abby-Jilly as he calls them) have a pink Jeep, and now Josh has his own as well.

Of course, he still doesn’t understand how to steer. Abby helps him when she rides with him, as you can see in the picture below…

This is a quick one. Josh recently has started saying “Goodness!” Leann and I think it’s pretty funny. So the other day we were all in the car, and I said, “Josh, say ‘Goodness.'”

To which he replied, “Goodness.” After a short pause, he rebutted with, “Daddy, say ‘Sonic.'”

He’s his mother’s boy.
