New Updates

For the last week now, Z has been more and more inclined to wear underwear during the day. He manages to hold in his pee and in fact, we have to remind him to pee so he does not have accidents. It’s great not having to clean up after him for #2’s. They are super messy. I’ve been doing the same with V and putting her on the potty for #2. So far, it has been successful. I think he is going to be diaper-free before he turns 3 for sure. Yaya! /p>

Sleepwise, naps for Z are still easy – as long as I’m the only one home. If M is home, too, it changes things. After he brushes his teeth, I kiss him and tuck him in his crib and walk out. Night time is a little different. He wavers back and forth between me and M. But the screamings in the mornings are gone now. A sleeps for about 10.5 hrs and has been napping for about 1.5-2 hrs during the day. V naps in the swing and I try to watch the time to make sure she is not overtired – I.e, not staying up for more than 2.5 hrs at the most. Today was a great day for her – 3 naps for a total of 2 hrs 50 min altogether. I feel great.
Another development is with Z’s tooth rushing. Ever since we let him use the kids’ fluoride toothpaste, Bucky Beaver’s cotton candy or bubble gum, he has been so enthusiastic about brushing his teeth. He even takes his time to brush and spit. Z also stopped biting the bristles so I think we will not be buying replacement toothbrushes as often.

Potty Adventures

After the success in the potty after lunch, I thought it would be a good idea to try again after dinner. After I took off his diaper to change into the night diaper, he announced he needed to poo. I let him sit in the big toilet with the potty seat because he said the little potty hurt his rush. He even pointed out and explained where on the potty it hurts him. So I agreed to get the seat from downstairs.
I gave him a choice of books to read and he picked a Chanukah book. So cute. I checked on him a few minutes later to ask if anything came out and there was. Second time around, he was seriously studying the pictures and still pooing. So I went back to our bed where M and V were reading.
A few minutes later, M sits up and hurries out to the hallway. Z had gotten off the potty himself and was walking towards our room. It was very quiet before that and we should have checked on him. M was surprised to find almost half a roll of toilet paper in the toilet that Z happily and proudly put in. In the end he did poo, but because there was so much paper in there, M couldn’t see anything.

And he worst part of it all is that the toilet couldn’t be flushed because all that paper would have clogged the toilet. M had to fish it all out and squeeze out all the water. Yuck.
