Well I can;t say for sure we have started potty training. I brought the chair out about a week ago. For a while Karady put her dolls in it and pushed them around the house, or she would sit on it fully clothed, she would stand on it to reach things. I asked Ray if she wanted to go potty, and so we started the circus of sitting on the potty trying to go. She has gone a few times in it. The other morning I put her on and she went, but then stood up and peed all over the floor. That reminds me have to stock up on Lysol wipes! NOw she always wants to sit on it to "poop". It seems too big for her, like she sinks into it too much. Now she wants to sit on it all the time. I don't know if she or I are ready for this.

We have been trying to teach Lu her name. If you ask her what her name is she says "Me". NOlan taught her to say her name the other day. It comes out like "Kar D". It really does sound pretty good. She won't say Nolan or my name. She also loves to repeat what you say, so we really have to watch what we say around her.

Karady has also learned the art of stalling when it is time to go to bed. If I tell her we need to get jammy's on, she will say "Poop" and run to the potty. Or she will say "Eat" and want a snack. Also this is prime time to start to play tea party with mommy. She is so funny.

NOt only does she play hide and seek with her hands, but she will put her hands over her eyes and say "R U" like Where are YOu? Tammi said her kids used to do this too. SO I don't know if she heard Tammi say this, or if she came up with that all on her own. Today when I was in the shower and she was eating breakfast with me in her high chair in the bathroom, she said "Mommy R U". Of course she couldn't see me because I was behind the curtain. I laughed so hard. What a girl. SHe is 21 months now, you know!!

Until next time>
