Finally got a video for you to enjoy. Lots has been going on here. Before we left for Puerto Rico we got a letter from daycare that Claire was ready to move up to the next room at daycare and would begin transitioning this past Monday with the official full time move taking place next Monday. Yesterday when I went to pick up Claire she was nowhere to be found and they told me they sent her for a trial run and she was having so much fun they didn''t want to take her back. And I got the same report today when I picked her up. This is much different from her last transition but we are very happy! My guess is she likes the older kids because she now has friends she can talk to.
Speaking of talking - we will be invited back to Puerto Rico next year. Claire was so funny in Puerto Rico rambling off everyones name (except Nana and Grandma). She would sit at dinner and go around the table yelling everyones name and when she got to my mom she would either skip over her or say Pipere and laugh. Friday night mom was giving her a bath and all of a sudden I hear screaming from the bathroom. I went in to find Claire rattling off Nana over and over and over again. Mom loved it and Claire thought it was hysterical. My opinion is she could say it all along and was just playing games. Needless to say, Nana is ecstatic and we will be invited back next year, right?
Over the past month Claire has been letting us know when she pees or poops. While we were sure she was not ready for potty training, we figured we have nothing to lost trying. Last Monday night before we gave Claire a bath we put on the potty and she peed! Surely we thought it was a fluke, but tried again on Tuesday - nothing. Wednesday we tried again and she peed again. Same thing Thursday and then again Sunday. It is a start, but I don''t think we are anywhere near full blown potty training. But we did buy Claire an Elmo seat cover and step stool for the bathroom. So throw out those suggestions for potty training - we definitely need some good advice.
We took Claire for her 2nd H1N1 shot this week and she weighed in at a whopping 26lb 8oz - how did that happen??
Enjoy the videos....
