Today is the Peep’s fourth birthday. Larry and I are taking the day off like we always do*, and we’re going to the Aquarium.

I’ll post photos of our excursion later, but I wanted to take a minute to bring you up to date on some of the recent milestones we’ve zipped by recently.

First, and perhaps most importantly, the boy is pretty much completely potty trained at last. He’s been teetering on the brink for a couple of weeks now, wearing (dry) underwear for hours at a stretch, but the um, solid waste disposal was a big hurdle for him. Out of the blue last week he started um, voiding regularly, and I’m thrilled to say he hasn’t had an accident – liquid or solid – since Saturday. Last night he even wore his undies under his pajamas! It’s been a long road*, but I think we’ve turned the corner on this, at last.

Also, regular readers know the he’s been pretty strongly anti-barber*, if not anti-haircut, for years now. Well, on Monday, while running errands with my mother and sister-in-law, they parked outside of a supercuts in a strip mall. He took one look inside and asked if he could get a haircut. In the spirit of striking while the iron is hot, they whisked him inside, and damned if he didn’t sit still like a champ.

That about sums things up for now; today promises to be sunny and mid-80’s, so we’ll do our best to take full advantage.

* I’m posting this from my iPhone, so I’ll add the corresponding links when I’m at the computer.
