33/52

33/52

Last week he: officially graduated to 'potty trained', it's still evolving but feels amazing to have this massive parenting challenge on its way to the finish line / sat at the barber shop eating a lolly and watching dad get his hair cut (he still wants mama to cut his... a request I'm finding increasingly challenging!) / got sad when he learned his favorite teacher won't be in his class this fall :( / was so sweet with his baby sister, he hugs her and tickles her, encourages her to try all of his favorite foods... he just becomes a better big brother constantly.

Last week she: walked walked walked!, she is more confident every day / cut more new teeth, I think she has three on bottom and three on top with one stubborn front-top-tooth causing lots of aggravation / ate two dozen eggs (I know we probably shouldn't let her have so many eggs, but she is in love) / started bursting into tears when we tell her she can't do something, 'nah-ah roo, no climbing the slide'... followed by the most pitiful look and massive rolling tears. this one is going to get her way. a lot!

  3. Hooray for the potty-training! I know you haven't made a big deal about it in this space, but it is pretty amazing when that all comes together, especially when you've been a bit worried about the timing of it. Congrats to W and R for some pretty big milestones this week!

  4. That's so wonderful that he is officially potty trained. Good job girl! You'll need him to be potty trained, now that you have to chase her everywhere, right? ;) Jo
