I haven’t really mentioned any babylogues updates about Baby Pancakes in awhile so here goes. There are so many things going on in the area of feeding and potty training.
Mr. Pancakes thought i was being crazy and being funny when i told him to allow Baby Pancakes to eat in nothing but his diaper. I came home one day to find my son walking around happily in his diapers.
I asked, “what’s he doing in his diaper?”
He answered, “We just finished eating dinner!”
See I wasn’t crazy after all. Baby Pancakes has a very straight forward diet, he eats what he likes and he likes what he eats. He was liking hot cereal in the morning but has grown out of that and is back to eating yogurt in the morning. For lunch, it’s noodles and some veggies. Spaghetti-o’s are his favorite go to dinner. He also loves sausages. His drink of choice is whole milk and water. We had to stop giving him juice because he was refusing to drink his milk. Now we only give him juice every once in a blue moon. His go-to snack are bananas, pineapples, strawberries, fruit snacks, crackers, cheese-strings and he loves his vitamins. Every morning without fail, he
asks cries for his vitamins. He is a little obsessed. We try to feed him mostly organic foods. Of course, this is not always realistic because we don’t always eat organic. But he does have a pretty good, healthy and clean palette.
I am moving from feeding to potty training because they definitely go hand in hand. Baby Pancakes has made me realized how important it is to have a bowel movement on a daily basis. Seriously, whatever goes into a baby’s mouth will come out on the other side. And it’s a beautiful thing.
We started potty training maybe when he was fourteen/fifteen months and so far, it’s been going smoothly. Mr. Pancakes gets the bulk of the credit since they are home together most days. They have their potty song and dance. It’s exciting to see all the progress he’s made throughout the months. He is now able to motion that he wants to use the potty and we HURRY to get to the bathroom just so he can use his potty. Sometimes we have to sit on the potty for along time and he will request a magazine. I mean he is just the cutest!!
Potty training is definitely a long term goal and we are hopeful he will have it down by the time we reach 24months old. But so far so good. Sometimes at night when we are getting ready for bed, he will pretend he has to go to the bathroom, just so he can run back into the living room. But i am catching on to him!!
Overall, i am glad we decided to potty train sooner rather than later. Plus, it would be awesome when we no longer have to buy diapers/or use cloth diapers. And he can wear big boy underwear…tear tear cry cry tear….i am so not ready for that part of this growing up process but it’s inevitable.
