A blog from a Mommy who thinks she’s cool and wants you to know why.

First attempt

Posted on: April 15, 2009

So at this point I’m going to ATTEMPT to blog everyday, but with all the stuff that I do during the day who knows? The title relates to my first attempt at a real blog, as well as my first attempt to really potty train Lilly. Any sincere advice is welcome. So for the last two days, while at home I have let Lilly run around with nothing on her bottom. The only result I get is her peeing on the floor. Even when I have her sit on the potty every 20min, she waits till shes off to go pee on the kitchen floor. I have no idea what I’m doing. I put 9books on potty training waiting for me at the library. I’m hoping that if all I do with her is read potty training books that she’ll get more interested. She understands what the potty is, and says she doesn’t want to wear a daiper anymore, she wants wear big girl panties, but she still wants to pee in those. Oh well, maybe slow and wobbly will eventually get us to the finish line.

On another note, something that Lilly is excelling in is sign language. I’ve been using a book that my stepmom got her, and she’s picking it u quite well, even her speech therapist says so. The speech therapist is going to start signing with us more because she picks it up so quickly.  I dont want it to be something that she just uses as a baby(toddler now), I want er to become bilingual with sign, eventually trilingual if we can get some spanish in there, which I know will be helpfu gorwing up in this area. Hopefully in teaching her, I will be able to learn as well, because as much as I’m doing this for her I;m doing this for me, too. As far as Lilly’s progress in the English language, her speech therapist says she is making “leaps and bounds” learning a new word almost everyday and starting to use three word sentances. Oe thing that I’m really proud of her for, especially with mine and my dad’s ability go, is well she knows her numbers, she recognizes them and can count to five. I attribute this to my families genetics and her medications. That’s one thing we are really repetative with, is counting out pills for her, how many cans of pediasure go into her bag for her feeding tube, how long it takes to put her liquid medications into he button, all it we count out, which makes me kinda glad that she has to do it all the time. Her area of expertise, she can count better than her best friend who has the language skills of a 4 year old at 2 1/2 years. I’m such a proud mommy :-D. I guess that’s all for now.
P.S. Why in the world is it so cold and windy outside, and how is going to rebound and supposedly be 90degrees in two days? I hope the weather people are right on that one.

If you bribe her she will go:) In exchange for poop and pee we would give my eldest daughter doughnuts!

Hugs and Mocha,
