Potty training seems to be the topic of the hour with my friends who have children Henry's age. Rod and I (Rolex) are taking the "hands-off" approach to potty training. We bought a potty and have it in the living room so he can sit on it any time he'd like. We speak casually about the potty, and talk about peeing and pooping on the potty, and generally try to make it sound like a super-fun and exciting thing. So far, he's only semi-interested and we're okay with that. We are thinking about hitting potty training more seriously between 2&1/2 and 3.
A few days after his second birthday, we had a minor health scare related to his arachnoid cyst. He had some weakness in his leg that was making it difficult for him to walk, but it was only temporary (it only lasted one-very scary-day) and all seems back to normal (thank God!). We are in super-close contact with his doctors and we are all carefully monitoring. We are hoping it was a strange fluke.
In the meantime, life has been pretty amazing (I have much more to blog about). We are embracing every wonderful moment!

(notice the toothbrush in his right hand), and sitting on the potty.
The look on his face is hilarious!
