Ziva is doing awesome lately.

We changed to a toddler bed a few months ago and she hasn't looked back.  Lately, she's been waking up early but, because there's been a ton of changes, I can't really blame her as much as I would love to still be sleeping in until 9 on the weekends.

She's been doing wonderfully at potty training.  She still sleeps in a diaper overnight and usually wakes up wet but naps are about 66/33 for dry to wet and it's usually when she had fallen asleep in the car or at daycare that she wakes up wet (we use pull ups at naptime).  Otherwise, she's in her little undies all day and doing really really great.  After the first week at daycare they were saying it may be too soon and yada yada.  Today when I picked her up, the owner just told me how proud she was of Ziva and how amazed she is at how wonderfully she's doing.  Last week she bought her a whole package of undies to celebrate which I thought was really cute.  We've even had 2 poops on the potty in the last two days.  I wasn't expecting poops for quite a while so yay.

Last night, I put her to bed and she asked for the "abcdef" song.  She used to call it the "B" song so this is an improvement.  I sang it once then told her to sing it with me.  She sang the whole alphabet.  She seriously just blows my mind sometimes.  She's gotten up to M and sometimes P a whole bunch but then I slowly said Q R and she picked back up and finished it off.  It's amazing what her little brain is capable of.

She's also perfectly two and loves to throw a mean tantrum.  Laying on the floor, tears flowing, snot streaming down her face, legs kicking all because you gave her the milk she asked for but it was in the wrong cup - even though that's the one she asked for.  Oh, didn't you know she changed her mind?

She's been getting up around 6am lately which sucks, but although it sucks, it's adorable when she comes running into our room and yells GOOD MORNING!!  I go pee pee potty now!  It's not fun at 36 weeks pregnant when I just want to sleep and I'm up every 30-90 minutes thru out the night to pee, change positions, or because I have heartburn.

2 year olds really are mind blowing. So so clever and can be so damn naughty too!

Yay for potty training. I'm totally jealous!

It really is crazy to see how their little minds work and when they're planning something completely devious.

I'm guessing there may be some accidents once the baby is here but, for now, she's loving it and I'm really enjoying not changing diapers for a few weeks.

I'd love to tell you the "wrong sippy cup" tantrums end soon. But at 3 years and 4 months... not so much.

The pottying does get more independent. And the playing alone. And even the reaching dry cereal so Mom can sleep another half hour (my dad once told me this was his favorite developmental milestone; at the time I thought it was an awful thing to say, but now I am a parent). But there are still mornings when the first words I hear are, "Mom, come wipe my butt."

Yeah, it would be wonderful if those ridiculous tantrums ended quicker but at least I won't be pregnant for too much longer so I should (hopefully) cope better and not just want to tantrum myself lol

I'd love for her to get her own cereal but we live in a 2 story house and I'd be too nervous with her going downstairs all by herself at this age. Although, now I'm tempted to just put a box of cereal in her room hahaha
