Lightbulb?!?

I think Bear JUST experienced his first lightbulb with potty training. I had JUST taken him out to potty ~5 mins earlier and we were playing in the living room he squats and starts pooing! I firmly say "aaaaaaat" which is our casual correction cue. I raced around the furniture to grab him but he had already frozen and was running for the back door!!

Best moment ever!!!!!!!

On a separate note, he's gained 4 lbs in two weeks. But he's looking pretty skinny. I think he just had a growth spurt. I'm thinking of increasing his food intake to 3 cups a day (we're at 2 right now spread over three meals). Maybe test it out for a few days and she how he reacts to it, maybe scale it back if he starts looking especially round.

This is him yesterday. Click image for larger version

Great update. I was laughing, picturing Bear and you running to the door. He is so sweet.

He's such a doll... What a laugh, seeing him dashing with stuff hanging down.

Don't worry too much about overseeing him at this young age. If he starts to look plump you can cut back a bit, but he's growing and with his activity level he probably won't get fat! It's so fun to see that Golden face, in black!
