We’ve had success again and it’s always a party when there is success. Isabelle kept telling me that something was going on but of course it’s right when I am trying to feed the twins their bottles. So I just kept telling her it was okay and that we would get it the next time. But she insisted and even managed to hang on until the twins were done their bottles.
So we make the trip in to the bathroom, sit down on the potty and discuss all things potty. Then Isabelle gives me her signal for “all done”. But there was nothing there. So I assured her better luck next time and we still did a little dance for wanting to be on the potty. 5 minutes later she’s again telling me something is going on. So back we go. We sit, we wait, we chat and then Isabelle claps her hands. So up we get off the potty and yes it certainly was time to celebrate for real!
I am proud of my little girl. And I’m sure that when she’s old enough to know and resent me for all the embarrassing things I will do to her, this will be one of them that she will be mad at. My posting about her poop. So Isabelle, when you do read this you will look back one day on it and realize that you will most likely to the same to your child(ren). I’m going to do it to your sister and brother too! Tee hee.
Auntie M is coming up this weekend and I can’t wait to have her. More importantly there is a little someone in this house who is going to be very excited to have her Auntie around. It’s always nice to have an extra body in the house. Mainly because Isabelle needs the extra attention. It has been getting better for Isabelle lately as the twins have gotten older. But she still doesn’t get quite as much as she needs I think. On the plus she is getting better at playing by herself and even playing so the twins are amused with what she is doing. I’ve noticed a bit of a change in how she reacts to the twins lately. It’s more between her and Madeline since Madeline is the one who is sitting up the best. Isabelle will play in front of her and Madeline with shriek in delight which then also makes Isabelle happy because I think she’s starting to understand that she’s making her happy.
Today we also had a very “cute” moment between Isabelle and Madeline. Isabelle likes to sit in their cribs with them while I’m changing one of them at the change table. So I usually put her in Aidan’s crib because it’s closest to the table so that if she stands up I can quickly get her to sit down again. So today I changed Madeline and brought her over to Aidan’s crib where he and Isabelle were hanging out. I sat Madeline up in front of Isabelle and they sat there together in the crib while I changed Aidan. Isabelle was such a proud big sister that she even helped Madeline get a toy she knocked out of reach. She was happy to sit there with her sister. It was so cute and of course there was a camera no where in sight. So I will have to try to be better equipped the next time.
Well the three of them didn’t nap well this morning and I didn’t get much of a nap this afternoon so I’m off to try to get some sleep.
