It's been a while

Sorry its been so long since I've blogged, Raymond was teething, had a nasty diaper rash, got his first tooth YAY, and we've been working on our elimination communication. I got both diaper free books from the library. Great books by the way. Raymond is doing really good we are catching about 2-3 pees a day one at nap time, before bed and during the night. Im working on trying to notice when he needs to go pee during the day BEFORE he goes. Its much harder during the day cause all he wants to do is play and crawl around. Besides for learning to pee out of the diaper and getting a tooth he is also learning to walk! They learn so much at this age...

Daven is also learning a lot. We just did the letter "R" this past week. He is also working on numbers, shapes, and signing. :)
I really want to work on getting him to memorize prayers but Im not too sure if that would be too much for him right now. I guess I could always try and find out lol.
In the midst of all this learning we are all LEARNING to be a happy harmonious family and its absolutely wonderful.

Lazy Day Today

Raymond and I had a rough night last night. He tossed and turned most of the night and we co-sleep so it was hard for me to get any rest. So needless to say I am exhausted! We did however catch a poopy this morning in the toilet! That was our highlight lol But havent caught anything else. With both of us being tired and cranky potty time can wait til after nap or even til tomorrow. Still doing my best to keep him dry though by changing him quite frequently.
Daven started the letter "P" today! He did so good writing it all by himself! I was so very proud of him! He really is catching on to school stuff really fast.
And...I also need to get some sewing done today I have two orders that need finished ASAP!

Full Day of Elimination Observation

Today I started observing when Raymond went pee or poop. I found out that he pees about every 45 minutes to an hour. After a few days Im sure I will see a pattern in his poop habits. I caught two pees outside today! YAY!!! Since we do not have a baby potty chair I am scared to try to pee him in the bathroom lol Im afraid he will pee and it will go up and all over the bathroom lol. But going outside works for now until we get a baby potty chair. Raymond I think really enjoys not being wet all day. I also let him take a nap without a diaper on, I had two prefolds right there under his bum and in front of his winky to catch the pee. He only pee'd once while napping. About an hour ago he pee'd in his diaper and came crawling to me crying. its the first time i let him be wet all day lol. After his cloth diapers are done in the laundry he will go right back in them :D Looking forward to tomorrow :D
