I’m ready to get this potty training thing in high gear. He sat on and successfully peed in his potty tonight before his bath. He tells us when he needs a diaper change, he goes off for privacy when he need to go #2. Does he sound ready to you guys?
So said Monkey boy tonight as we were reading a story. I read the line “with a mighty BOOM and a billow of smoke…” and he jumped right in with a “BOOM!” of his own. He and I played a silly game of saying BOOM! to each other and giggling. He’s too much fun!
Oh, and he and I played in his little play tent/hut thing tonight. He’s never been a big fan of it but he started playing in a tunnel with one of his therapists recently so I brought it out to see if he’d enjoy it. We had a really good time peeking at each other through the windows. At one point he went walking toward it signing “house.” I certainly hadn’t called it that but he was right.
We’ve decided to tackle Monkey’s sleep issues. For the last few months we’ve been really struggling here. He will go to bed and then sit in his crib (sometimes crying, sometimes not) for HOURS each night. He just cannot fall asleep. Some nights he’ll be in there wide awake for 3 or 4 hours. It’s so sad. We kept doing what we’d always done, hoping it was a phase but it wasn’t. Read more
Tonight we were on our family walk and we told Monkey “Look, there’s the moon!” and pointed to it. He said “moon” clear as day 5 or 6 times and when we asked where it was he pointed RIGHT at it. So cute!
