How crazy is that? She is 11 months today, and I know I say it all the time, but it has gone by soooo fast. Elanor is a joy to have around. She is funny, cuddly, so very sweet (she loves giving kisses and when she is tired she always lays her head on me), adventurous, and adorable.
|Laying her head on me... This was right before her nap, so she was a little sleepy.|
|Did I mention she loves giving kisses?|
~She is pretty much walking now. She can start walking on her own if she is standing up and can walk between Tyler and I really well. She can also walk really well holding on to my hand. She walks to get around sometimes, but still crawls a lot.
---We started doing this potty training thing yesterday after I read this book called "Diaper Free Before 3". You are supposed to start at around 6 months and the potty training is a little slower of a process then the average start at 2 1/2-3 years thing but your baby should be trained by around 18 months- 2 years if not earlier depending on your baby. I wanted to start because you are supposed to get your baby out of diapers around one (a little later for Elanor probably since we started a little late) and put them into training pants (I'll use cloth ones, since I already use cloth diapers and the disposable pull-ups you can't feel the wetness, so it is much more difficult to potty train) and then into underwear around 18 months. I did not want Elanor to be in diapers till she was 2 or 3. That just seemed ridiculously long! It is actually pretty laid back and all we do right now is put Elanor on her little potty when she wakes up in the morning, after naps, before bed and anytime she looks like she is going to poop. Yesterday, she went once in her potty and today she went when she woke up this morning. I was pretty surprised she even went on the first day. I just sit her on her little potty and read to her. It is pretty cute.
