The boy baby had his first doctor’s appointment today. He’s quite healthy. He weighed 7 lbs 6 oz when he was born, on October 2. As of today, he weighed NINE POUNDS TWO OUNCES. He was 21 inches long today, too…an inch & a half longer than at birth. Yowzah.
I started a potty training thread a while ago, and got some good suggestions. I tried them, but they didn’t work. Not at the time, anyway. But a week ago, my daughter all of a sudden started using the potty. She uses it 4 or 5 times a day now. I mentioned this to a friend of mine, and she thought that maybe it was because she sees us changing her brother’s diapers, and realized that diapers were for “little babies,” and she’s not a little baby. Has anyone else experienced this? We’ve been rewarding her whenever she goes potty, with big hugs, lots of praise, and Blue’s Clues stickers. It’s working.
