Levi just gets better and better with each day. He becomes more curious, he learns to do more things (he can wave bye bye now) and just keeps getting cuter. I'm trying to talk to him in full sentences as much as possible. It's tempting with him to speak in simple terms and one word sentences, but I kind of think it would help his language skills if I spoke to him as though he were an adult and he could be used to the English language in that way. I ask him if he needs to go potty, I talk to him about how he doesn't need to poop in his diaper but he needs to poop in his toilet and it will be cleaner that way. He usually just looks at me with his big brown eyes and smiles. And I laugh.
I probably laugh too much at him. He does naughty things and it's all I can do to keep from bursting out sometimes. He really loves to reach his chubby little fingers around my computer and press the buttons on the keyboard. It's funny and frustrating at the same time. That's probably when he thinks his name is "No"
EC-ing has been a bit discouraging lately. I have to keep reminding myself that it's a process. It's not a one-time, one-day and-you-have-it-all-figured-out potty training experience. It's just being aware of his needs, his patterns, etc. That's been kind of hard with him being sick lately. Yesterday I woke up to bad diarreah, both at 6 am and then at 7. Washing out two diapers first thing in the morning is never really that appealing. That's usually when I curse cloth diapering. The rest of the time I love it.
I think we just need some more diaper-free time. We need to step back and not take ourselves too seriously.
Hope you are all enjoying your babies as much as I am!
