The last few weeks have been so crazy busy. I realized that I haven't really updated you all on how Z and C are doing lately. I apologize and will try to catch you up right now :)
Over the holiday break I met with his teachers and we put a plan in place to help Z be more confident at school. As it turns out they were only asking him if he needed to use the potty instead of telling him to go. Since he had regressed so much after C's birth, he was saying no and then wetting his pants. My smart husband made the connection that he was crying everyday after snack, which was right after their class potty break. He figured that the two were connected.
New Years Eve Z was thrown back into underwear (diapers for nap, bed and poops) and is doing GREAT! Elf came back to give him a present when he filled the potty chart that he had left for Z and now he is working on a trip to Chuck E Cheese (eeewwww germs). He has about one accident a day but other than that....he is doing great. He is independent and only needs help pulling up his pants (or fixing them really). We are soooo proud of him. Next we will be moving on to poop training....but we are not rushing him!
He went back to preschool yesterday after 2 1/2 weeks off and he was very nervous about going. We role played the morning for days before and talked about all the fun he would have. We brought his golf set into share with his classmates (part of our plan) and this seemed to help with the transition into the day. When I picked him up he was SMILING!!! The first time in a long time. He even had something positive to say and he never said his usual, "I don't like school mama". His teacher worked with him on his potty training and I think this had a lot to do with his change in attitude about school. I hope Friday goes as smoothly as Wednesday :)
C is growing so fast! We think she is almost 11 lbs and she is not even 3 months yet. She goes in for her 2 month appointment (at 12 weeks old) next week so we will see what she officially weighs then. This girl LOVES to eat :) Her medication has really helped her refulx but gas is her new enemy :(
Unfortunately, C shares her brother (and her mother's) sensitive stomach. I have eliminated all soy and dairy (as best as I can...eating out or at other people's homes are tough) and she was doing pretty well until Christmas. Since the holidays she has been struggling with sleep due to her gassy belly. They say it can take up to 2 weeks for things to leave your system, if that is the case then we have another week until the soy from the Chinese food on New Years Eve (I didn't eat anything with soy sauce too). If it doesn't get better soon, we will have to look at other things in my diet. My sister wants me to try formula.....I would rather not but we shall see.
C and Z are starting to really interact now :) Lil' C can not get enough of Z....if she is fussy I send Z in to entertain her and she will smile and coo. He "plays" with her now and brings her baby toys. It is really fun to see.
