Conversations with my daughter

Natali is chugging along great.

We've started potty training again. It's going decently. Her day care teacher thinks we will have her trained by the end of the year.

In preparation we picked up the carpet in the living room to avoid any stains and bought a 10 pack of toddler underwear.

We're in it for the long haul. We used the "Potty Boot Camp" book.

She let's us know when she needs to go while wearing a diaper. While wearing underwear.....not to much.

On a more positive note Natali is speaking in fairly complex sentences. When in the car she often says the following:

" Let's go home."

"I want to go home and see doggies."

"I want to go home and see mommy."

"I want to go home and see daddy."

"I want to go home and eat dinner."

"I want to go home and each lunchable."

"I want hot dogs and carrots for lunch."

Not bad for barely a 2 year old.

She has other sayings. We are almost to the point of having real conversations with Natali.

Beyond that she has adjusted well to her new bed. She hasn't fallen out once and really enjoys having steps.

With the new bed came a new camera. The old camera was wired. Worked fine for a crib. Not for the bed. The new one is wireless. I bought a Foscam 8910W from Amazon. Great Infrared performance. Easy to watch via an app on our Ipads.


Finally we stopped by the Dallas Zoo today. It was a bit cold. I forgot to bring her jacket so I had to dress her in two shirts. She had a great time with the goats....she hugged a particular white goat several times.

Big Girl Bed...part duex

So tonight is Natali's first night in her real big girl bed.

Previously we converted her crib into a mini big girl bed.

In that bed she did pretty good. She rarely got out...even during naps.

In her real big girl bed....well she has to get used to it.

During her attempted nap she balanced on the railing. As you can's a very high railing. Nap cancelled.

Now it's night...she's walking around a bit. Looking out the window she could never look out before a bit. Not sleeping.

Hoping the night goes well.
