I don't know why, but I'm getting to go bare bottomed today! Mommy said we're going to work on late start elimination communication and this is the only way she can learn my signals. That's okay, because I love having my tushie free! But the strangest thing happened--water came out of me! I was doing what I do to make a diaper when suddenly I was all wet. Mommy said it came from me and cleaned it up and showed me that it's supposed to go in my potty. Well, who knew! That's what a diaper is? She said it's 'tinkle', not water, but it sure looked like water to me! She made a sound when I was making it--I've heard her make that sound when I'm on the potty making a diaper, too. I wonder what it means...

My training potty!

This morning, I used my training potty for the first time. It made a fun song and Mommy cheered me. And here I thought it was scary the first time she put me on it! It turned out not to be bad after all. Of course, I think a lot of things are scary now, like Tigger and dogs and people I can't quite recognize. I like that Mommy was sitting on the big potty right next to me, it made me feel like I was doing the same thing she was.

I did lots today!

Today, I woke up and was happy to see Mommy still in bed with me. We got up and I had breakfast. First I nursed, then I had some sweet potatoes from Daddy, yum! Then Mommy dressed me in a small diaper and a swimsuit and coverup, then Daddy put me in the car and I fell asleep. When I woke up, Mommy was putting sunblock on me. We were going to the spray park! I'm never sure what I think of it. I don't like being there at first, but I get used to it after a couple minutes of watching Mommy playing in the water, then I get into it, too! It's like my sensory bowl--just enough water to play in, but not enough to really be scary. I kept thinking it would get scary, but in the end, I felt safe enough to crawl around, although I skinned my knee a little.

After that, it was back to the car and I fell asleep again. When I woke up, we were at the mall! Yay! I got to play in the play area and at one point, there was a cute little girl there who was turning one year old today. She waved and said "hi" so I waved back. First I accidentally signed "milk" (which I did want) but then I got it right. Mommy was proud of me, she said.

Then we went to the bookstore after I played for a while longer and after I got some milk again, Mommy set me down and told me not to pester anyone. I looked at a man reading a book, then looked back at her and she told me that that was a 'someone' not to pester, so I left him alone. Then I wanted to crawl off, so I told Mommy by pointing. I've seen her point a lot, but this was the first time I did it. She was so happy she followed me. When she asked if I'd wanted her to follow her, I said "No," which she thought was funny and apologized for following me (although she didn't stop).

Then I fell asleep and when I woke up, Mommy said we'd gone to a lot more places, but I'd slept through it all. I certainly felt better for my super long nap! So then I got some sweet potatoes and mommy milk and now I expect the rest of the night should be party time!
