Guess who went peepee on the potty TWICE this week?! No, not Eric ... well, he probably did, but we didn't clap and cheer for him. Yep, it was Maria! She loves to sit on the potty, because, of course, Maya does it too. Maria loves to copy Maya. It's the cutest thing ever. Now, though, the problem seems to be that she doesn't like to keep her diaper on. And she doesn't quite understand that she needs to finish peeing BEFORE she gets off the potty. And she loves to just sit and tear the toilet paper and throw it in the water, but sometimes doesn't actually pee until she gets off the potty. So we still have a ways to go here, but it was exciting nonetheless.
Maria is also talking up a storm these days. Sometimes it takes me a minute or two to figure out what she's saying, but it's quite clear that she understands what she is saying, and that she is saying something important! Occasionally Maya understands it before we do, and she's quick to point out what it is Maria wants, which I also think is quite adorable.
Oh, and Gran told me one on Maya today. Eric took the girls over to his mom's for lunch Sunday so that I could have some time to work on stripping off the bathroom wallpaper, and they had fried chicken for lunch. Maya and Maria always get the chicken legs. Gran said that Maya came in the kitchen and said she wanted more chicken, but her choice of words was she wanted another "chicken with the handle". hehehe. Too cute!
The daycare had their Spring Fair last week, and the 3, 4 and 5 year olds sang. The theme was Love Notes from Jesus, and it was incredibly cute. Of course, my child was the best and cutest one, but I'm not sure all the parents noticed that. I don't know why....
