3 big YEAs!!!! (Yes- this is 2 posts in one day. So?)

YEA #1: Liv rolled over from her tummy to her back on Saturday. She was 10 1/2 weeks at the time. She did it again today with a lot more ease.

YEA #2: Liv slept from 8:30pm to 6:50am yesterday and last nite she slept from 9pm to 7:15am. Woo hoo!

YEA #3: Taj is showing real interest in potty training. (Although I have NO interest what-so-ever in training him.) The last few days he's been taking off his diaper if he needs changed and telling me to change him. Then yesterday he took off his diaper and went to the potty to poop. Last nite after his bath he wasn't dressed yet (He had to do his nitely naked run around...boys!) and he went to the potty on his own to pee. Today after he had totally filled a Pull Up (He likes pulling them on although I think in order to really potty train a kid you should take them out of anything that absorbs.) I just let him run around barebum and he went to the potty twice. Now he is wearing big boy pants and he is still dry and not stinky. I think he knows when he needs to go, but when he has on a diaper or Pull Up he doesn't care. We'll see how this goes. I had planned on waiting until after our summer trip to Texas to start messing with training, but if he's ready I guess I have to be. Bummer.

**Funny potty training story: Isabel was basically potty trained, but I put her in a pull up when we were flying to Texas for Thanksgiving. I figured that would be better if she needed to pee and we couldn't stand up at the time on the plane or something. Well- she started whining saying she needed to pee. We were in the process of landing, so I told her to wait. She started crying so I finally said, "Just go in your pull up. It's ok." She refused. No matter what I said she would not pee in that pull up. She ended up holding it until we got to the airport which was what I had wanted her to do in the 1st place. I just thought it was funny how she seemed almost offended that I would want her to pee in the pull up. Too cute!

"Lucky!"in a Napoleon voice. I am so jealous of you. Charlotte is waking up every two hours consistently, last nigh 12,2,4, and 6 o'clock! Help!
Potty training is so slow going, Tucker does really good about peeing in the toilet, but won't poop in there. I got so sick of wiping it off his legs that I've got him in pull ups not big boy undies. Maybe I should try the bare butt thing or maybe I should have waited until it was his idea. You suck! okay I guess it's not your fault all your kids are awesome, well it kinda is.

I almost wish Liv was waking up at 4am and then going back to sleep because she like this morning she got up at 6:15am and stayed up. I don't want to get up at 6:15am. :( I am SO not a morning person. But, I guess I should shut up before she starts waking up all crazy!!
I DO suck because I don't want to mess with training him. It's the middle of soccer season so we're constantly on the go and he's so stubborn. If I say, "Do you need to go potty?" He'll yell, "NO!!!" but then he'll go whenever he feels like it. And sometimes underwear is cool and other times he doesn't want it. I just wish I knew he was totally ready because I don't want to start working at it and go insane. Ya know?

You are doing a great job, Tori!

Robin, sorry you are up in the night like a crazy person. Liam woke up for the day at 4 this morning... AHHHH. Luckily I got him back down by 5 so I could sleep 2 more hours.
