Isabelle is showing obvious signs of getting ready to turn two. If you saw us out in public you would for sure recognize her as a two year old complete with a vocabulary dominated by the word NO. She likes that word.
Me: "Isabelle, would you like to eat some breakfast?"
Me: "Isabelle would you like to play toys?"
Me: "Isabelle, stop riding your sister."
It is never ending. She says no even when it is obvious she wants to say yes. I have tried to stop saying words like no and mine so that she will not repeat them as much. Who knows if that will work, but I am going to try it.
She is also very close to potty training. She can tell you after she has gone and can sit on the potty with the best of them, but she will not GO on the potty. The fact that I just typed the word potty three times is astonishing to me. What has my life come to that I have this much to say on the topic of potty. And the truth is, I could probably type three paragraphs about our adventures in potty training. AHHH..there it is again. Needless to say, her mother is most likely the issue at this point. I have no idea how to go about getting a two year old out of diapers. But rest assured, I have checked out 10 books from the library and am confident one of them can help. I am hoping it is the one titled, Potty Training in a Day or something like that. I like the idea of one day. Can that even be true?
So all that to say, we are doing great. Dealing with potty, sleep deprived and busy beyond what we would have ever imagined, but great. Wouldn't trade it for anything.
