FYI : Butt = Book

Melia cracks me up everyday when she brings me books to read because she calls them butts. I taught her the word "bum" for her bottom but somehow she connected the word "butt" and so that is what she calls her bottom now. And apparently it goes the same for her books. :]

Also I am in the process of starting to potty train Melia. It is a slooow and frusterating process but I think we are both getting the hang of it. There is about a 50% chance that she will still go in her diaper but the other half of the time she will start to hold herself and we'll make it to the toilet on time.

Actually I have NO idea what I am doing...

but it seems to be alot easier than I thought it was going to be. She has been suprising me and telling me she has to go even when we aren't at home. So we go to the nearset toilet and I just kinda hold her up so she doesn't fall that weird??

So if you have any ideas or advice please feel free to advise!
But I do plan on teaching her the potty dance!
LOL this video is so funny!


  1. I feel the same about potty training! No clue what I am doing! Let me know if you find out any secrets! Ha Ha I wish!

  2. I am glad that you have a blog and we can keep in touch.
    Good Luck on Potty training-I am starting to feel like a pro now since I have 2 potty trained. My advice is don't potty train too early- I think between 2 and 2 1/2 is the best age. When you potty train take diapers away completely-no pull ups! Oh and girls are way easier to potty train than boys! But every kid is so different so do what you think is best.

  3. I love the "substitute" words these little guys and gals use instead of the real ones! I would crack up each time she brought me a "butt" too. And good luck potty training. Go you!

  4. MElia is so cute. Good luck with the potty will be easier than you think, esp. if she is telling you in public that she has to go..BTW we missed you at playgroup and your hair at least from your pic. looks very cute. cya soon
