Oh baby...

So today my baby girl is wearing pull ups. This comes about after much discussion, irregular use of the potty and oh yeah... after constantly mangling her diaper every night and then yesterday taking it off after a poopy and it dragging around in her pant leg. Oh and then she ripped off her diaper last night and had pee everywhere! Oy!
So today we gave the big girl diapers a shot and hopefully try and get her going more and more on the potty.
She has been especially trying lately with sleeping habits and hating all things daddy. The girl is still being rocked to sleep and then often and more so with daddy will wake up and scream and shout after being put in her crib. Last night this went on with daddy for 1 and a half hours! And then I had to intervene and that took me half an hour. So if you wonder what we're busy with in the evenings, that just about kills it. Anywho, after screaming for 15 minutes and making herself barf, I finally calmed her down and put her to bed. Speaking of which her big girl room is just waiting for finishing touches and then she will be moving... which will be wonderful with the way things have been going. She napped in her big girl bed on the weekend and did quite well.
I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with her. She has been getting her eye teeth for at least a month now and I cannot quite express into words how jealous I am of people who's children just pop those teeth out fairly quickly and painlessly.
Then there is her inexplicable intolerance for daddy lately. Like honestly the man cannot do anything right. She just yells at him and kicks and fights if he tries to do anything for her. I am still waiting for the daddy's girl stage to kick in.

I think that the teething, combined with a saucy almost 2 year old seems to be our problem, but it is taking all of our patience to tolerate somedays.
On a positive note, she is stringing words together and loves to rhyme right now. She loves Nana banana, daddy baddy, mommy bummy and a couple of her favorite expressions right now are hot tamale and sad baby.

Apart from that all goodness - I only have 30 work days left!!

Megs - Mia has been doing exactly the same things - we've been having a terrible time getting her to sleep (she screams) and she started wearing pull ups yesterday!!! LOL But today like always, she keeps telling me after she poops - I think that it's going to be a long road!The last two nights have been a lot better - I have let her cry herself to sleep - it was awful, but I did it and last night she didn't cry (much) so here's hoping that tonight is even better. It's been an awful 3 weeks at bedtime - I thought it was cause of Winston, but maybe it is just their age?

I'm sorry that she is being so trying for you Megan. I think the pull ups might be what she's looking for... let's hope anyway! I waited a long time for the daddy stage to kick in and after 4 years I think it's happened. Unfortunately now, I'm the evil one! LOLOL....*sigh*

What is up with sleeping lately? You're about the fifth person to say your kid is not going down great (Corina included). Mine too, but she's also been toted around a LOT lately with wedding running around. I've given up, but will start working on it come Monday. Reality will return to the Pawich/Friesen household after this weekend, and it will probably hit my baby girl like a rock, but oh well!

Oh, and my Mom was really slow to change the diaper and Scarlett peed on her socks. And said, "uh oh." Yeah. Exactly.

Oh, and the best poop story yet is still Corina's. I won't tell, but she probably will. :)
