I haven't given you a proper update on Penelope and Lucy in awhile, so it's about time I do that. These girls couldn't be more different from each other, but they make every day exciting, that's for sure.
We are very gently introducing potty training with her. She can recognize when she has "booped" so it's time. Well, that and she has now taken a liking to taking her diaper off at night. We had several mornings of me walking into her room only to be greeted by a stark naked toddler and pee ALL OVER her bed. Truly, it's a disgusting thing to deal with in the morning. Then it's a race to get the bedding all washed before nap time, which is like an Olympic effort on the best of days. So I took to Facebook to ask for ideas. The most commented? Duct tape.
It actually worked, too. She can't get the tape off and in the morning she might have her pajamas off but her diaper is still on. Which is glorious.
Except sometimes I forget to put the tape on her at nap time and one day it was an emergency. I heard Penelope wake up from a nap, and then start screaming. I race up the stairs faster than ever only to find the source of the screaming....
Penelope has also started talking and has the cutest little voice. My mom and I have decided she's like a real life Sour Patch Kid- first she's sour, then she's sweet.
Lucy, on the other hand, is always sweet. Lucy is the sweetest, chunkiest little thing and you can't help but love her to bits.
