Wow is about all I can say when it comes to what Brooke is doing these days. I bought Brooke a little potty for her thinking I would just get her used to it being in the bathroom and having her sit on it after baths. I moved it to our bathroom and have her sit on it every once in awhile when I go to the bathroom. Sunday night (May 9th) I sat her on her potty and she peed in it. We were so excited for her. Monday (May 10th) she came up to me and said “Mama, pee pee” I took her to her potty and sure enough she pee peed in her potty. I am not sure at this point if it was just a one time thing but I was super excited she related words to her actions and did just that. I will keep you posted on how the peeing in the potty goes. Who knows we might be potty trained by the age of 2, how exciting is that!!!
We also have decided to be strict and only allow Brooke to have her pacifier or what she calls “pappy” at nap time and bed time. She has been pretty good about it in the past but we would give in and let her have it at times. This week we have buckled down though. The part Brandon and I were most concerned with was not having the pacifier int the car. We get in the car and she automatically ask for her “pappy.” I explained to her that she is getting to be a big girl and only gets it at nap time and bed time. Brooke replied “all gone” I said yes. She was ok with this and didn’t cry at all. I didn’t think breaking the pacifier would be this easy. I am so excited. Last night (May 12th)when it was time for Brooke to go to bed, Brandon decided to see if she would go to bed without her pacifier. Guess what, she did and slept the entire night without it. I was shocked but so proud. Our baby girl is getting to be so big!
Potty Training and Breaking the Pacifier has been a lot easier than I thought, at least for now. WAY TO GO BROOKE!
