17 Months Old...and Going Potty!

Reese pays a lot of attention to Wyatt when he goes potty. She watches and screams "Pee pee!" every time he goes. She's even taken to going into the bathroom and sitting on the potty when I go in. The funniest thing about her is that as soon as she sits on the potty she reaches out and says "Door!" because she wants it shut for a little privacy!

This morning Brian asked Wyatt if he needed to go potty and Reese shouted "Potty! Potty!" Then she ran over to the bathroom and tried to open the door. Brian helped her get her pants and her diaper off and then she went pee pee in the potty! I can not believe that she did it! We didn't even contemplate potty training Wyatt until he was two and a half (and he just urinates at this point) , and here Reese is interested in it all by herself!

She's been feeling a little under the weather over the last two days. Last night she had a fever and a runny nose and watery eyes, and today she still seems a little un-Reesie-like. She does such a good job entertaining herself though. She loves to play with her new kitchen and with all her babies. She cracks me up the way she loves on them!

She is a great night time sleeper, and she takes pretty good naps during the day. Our kids are a lot like us in their sleeping patterns. Brian is one of those people who can get through a day on 4 hours sleep and be fine. He goes to bed late and wakes up early and loves to take a nap when he can. I like my sleep at night! When I have to wake up early for work (5:30ish) I like to be in bed by 9:30 or 10. And on weekends I usually try to get Brian to wake up with the kids on my days! Wyatt is just like Brian and Reese is just like me.

The other morning Wyatt woke up early after going to bed late again and we were hanging out in the family room. We were listening for Reese to wake up and when she did he shouted "Mom! Mom, We have to go get her! Baby Oranges it awake!" I have no idea where that came from! I mean, yeah she has red hair, but Baby Oranges? And now he also calls her Reesie Oranges. What a weirdo!


  1. I am pretty sure that this is one aspect where girls and boys are very different. I dread potty training a boy!

  2. I like the name "baby oranges". It is super cute!
