Little Human #1...the Kumquat
Bella has been loving preschool and can actually say both of her teachers' names. On Tuesday, she told me that she played with her friend, Pier, but it came out "Pair"...I really am raising a Southern belle.
She is learning more details and able to retain what she's been taught. Instead of telling us that she painted a fish, she knows that it's a "rainbow fish" because that's what she learned in school.
I can't believe I'm going to put this in writing (deep breath), but after 9 months of kicking and screaming (from all three of us!), Bella is finally potty-trained! FINALLY!!! The "#2" part of training has been especially dramatic in the last two weeks since we told Bella pull-ups were going away once school started. There were squeals of pride and excitement, and wails of stubborn refusal that lasted all afternoon. After four consecutive days of successful, low-drama yuckies, I'm calling it a win. (Cross your fingers!) I'm hoping this will be my last "potty post" until Evelyn starts the process.
I told Bella to get down from the table yesterday, and she said, "I crazy, Mama! I crazy!" She's a random little bugger! It takes work to keep a straight face when she sounds like a teenager.
Little Human #2...the Squirt
Evelyn has her 4-month checkup yesterday; she now weighs 16 lbs. 4 oz. (90%) and is 25" long (95%). She had a good growth spurt on her height, so the doctor even had the nurse re-check!
I asked the pediatrician about the frequency of her nursing and whether or not she thought it would be okay to cut back on one of her nightly feedings. She's still feeding every three hours, even at night, and sometimes my body just looks at me like, "Are you kidding me?" I think when we get back in town from Labor Day, I may try to cut out her 1:00 AM feeding. We'll see how it goes...
Evie has started laughing! It's not too often, but it's so precious! I can't wait for her laughter to become more consistent!
She is very strong and can hold her head up so well! She can prop her head up and push up off of her arms. I need to start putting her on her tummy more so she'll actually roll over!
She still has a clogged tear duct in her right eye, but the ped. said we should be able to work on it at home instead of doing any treatment through a specialist.
Me and the girls at the zoo last week with Whitney, David, and Charli. Trying to keep Bella still while there were animals to look at is pretty much impossible!
