- I decided I wouldn’t even try to potty train Eden until she was at least 2 years old, possibly 3. (With Hana Kate, even a little past 2 was too early for her.) About a month ago, Eden would take off her diaper when I put it on her and say, “pant-ies” or “big pant-ies.” A couple of times I put her diaper on and she immediately took it off, threw it down, and said, “No!” Now, I could take that as a sign of childhood rebellion…or I could consider that she was trying to communicate with me that she really wanted to use the potty. 🙂 I took it as a sign of the latter, and she figured out the potty herself in a couple of days with just a little help. If there’s a “baby potty,” she’ll usually take care of things herself; if there’s only a big potty, she’ll usually ask me to help her (or sometimes have an accident). I am still in awe at how quickly and easily it went, even with sitting through church, a couple of long car rides, and a big shopping trip. And staying dry overnights and naptimes. So, no diapers in our house for…the next 7 or 8 months. (Well, technically, HK still uses some on occasion.) Eden is still nursing and cosleeping, so I don’t feel as if her babyhood has disappeared quite yet, though. However, I am glad this didn’t happen with my first child; I would probably have been a little frustrated when I realized this isn’t the norm. 🙂
- Since February, I’ve lost about 40 lbs. I guess I’m going to gain a few back over the next few months.
- You know that achy feeling you get when you’re about to get the flu? That’s how I feel for part of the day these days, only it’s not contagious.
- My mom gave birth to 2 girls, my grandma gave birth to 2 girls, and my great-grandmother gave birth to 3 girls. It looks like am going to be breaking the family trend for at least 2 of those generations, maybe all 3.
- Iron on letters don’t always stick to shirts, and I’m still trying to figure out why.
