Ella has been growing and changing a lot in the past few weeks. She just turned 20 months old. She is letting me put ponytails in her hair, and bows (although she takes the bows out immediately!) She has watched me doing my make up in the morning and wants lip gloss on her lips. So cute! She’s eating pretty well (though we are still working on vegetables, ideas and recipes welcome!) and is really talking a lot though most of it still is indecipherable even to mom and dad.
Her most recent development is taking off her diaper. David went in this morning to get her out of bed and she had unzipped her pjs to her waist, pulled her diaper mostly off and went pee. It’s a stage I’ve been anticipating from afar with great joy. And alas, now it is upon us. I know it will only be a matter of time until it’s poop we encounter with the displaced diaper.
Obviously we will do our best to train her not to do that. But we all know that idealism and parenting don’t go in the same thought. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst!
So . . . What do I need to know about this? Advice? Poop sanitizing? Stain removal products on the black market? What in the world do you do if your kid pulls poop out and it gets in their mouth? Hopefully that won’t happen but I better know in advance!
Any feedback welcome!
