Today is "Fan Day" at school and Connor was excited to wear his "Football Shirt".
Everything automatically turned into football gear. He started saying his shoes are football shoes and his shorts are football shorts.
He went to watch his cousin Walker play little league football last weekend and ever since he has been obsessed with football.
Walker gave David a picture of him in his uniform and Connor has been carrying it around with him and telling us all about Walker playing football and about his football helmet. Walker also scored a touchdown last weekend so this morning Connor told me that he needed to "do a touchdown" and that he "needed his helmet".
Last week, I got the kids new jammies and Chloe wanted me to take her picture. This was her pose of choice...
Her hands are on her hips.
She has really gotten into her baby dolls since Cooper has been here. More so lately though because Cooper stays awake longer so she sees me taking care of him more.
She will run and get one of her babies and take care of it just like I take care of Cooper. Her baby's name is even Cooper. She burps the baby, rocks the baby, and kisses it on the head. So it was no surprise when her teacher told me that Chloe fed her baby at school one day, but not with a bottle. She said that she pull one side of her dress down and breastfed her baby! The teacher just told her that we don't feed our babies like that at school and that we use a bottle instead. So now she tells me that she feeds her baby with a bottle. But I have seen her breastfeed one other time since that time at school. She's a mess!
We're still potty training. Connor does really good and stays dry all day almost every day. I think he's had maybe 2 accidents in the last week. So he's ready for underwear. But he won't poop in the potty so I'm not sure when I should really switch him over to underwear. I think he's scared to go in the potty and he says it hurts. I sat in the bathroom with him last night for 30 minutes trying to make a game out of us "pushing" together. Still nothing happened. He's stopping himself up and I don't know what to do!
Chloe is hit or miss with the potty training. She stays dry about half the time. She's too busy to go to the potty. They take her every hour at school and she still has accidents. At home, she tells us she's going to "try again later" and runs away and as soon as we put a pull up on she pp's in it. She just could care less about sitting in a wet pull up, but then she gets mad when we tell her she can't wear big girl panties yet.
I've tried bribing them with everything from candy to new bikes and nothing works.
I will say that Connor can take himself to the potty, he can pull everything down or off, get on the potty, pee, wipe, and flush and pull everything back up. So that helps us out big time!
Chloe will do it too but we just have to remind her of the steps. She will pee and then just sit on the potty and wait for us to come in there so we have to remind her to wipe and then get down and then flush.
One day we'll be diaper free! I just know it!
