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.
