Random Thoughts (and Pictureless Post)

Just some random thoughts while they're on my mind
(and I know I will forget if I don't record NOW!)
These are just a few funny things that I don't want to forget!

* Have I mentioned Josie's obsession with the potty!??! I think this new (and very popular) topic of discussion at our house began when Josie received a few baby dolls for Christmas. She suddenly showed A LOT of interest in going to the potty and all babies must wear a diaper. She will even tell you when the baby has a "Eww" diaper! So, we have started potty training at our house. This is one of the toughest things I have come across as a Mom. We are using bribery as our strategy -- M &M's work pretty good for us! (I will have to designate an entire post on this subject... I could go on and on!)

* Josie is a snacker! The last time I really remember her eating big meals consistently was when she was first introduced to "real" food a year ago. She really prefers to snack throughout the day. I'm pretty sure she gets this awful habit from me! Also, I'm sad to say that we don't have a very good diet around here. Josie prefers pancakes, cheese, chips, goldfish and pizza. She will eat bananas but that's about the only fruit she prefers these days. I think the issue with fruit has always been a texture thing for her. She will immediately spit out strawberries, oranges, etc.

* Not only is she a "snacker", she's a DRINKER! Josie definitely drinks way more in a day than she ever thought about eating. She used to really only want milk and would choose it over juice. This has recently changed. We still do half water/half juice. I'm thinking of limiting her to only once sippy cup of juice a day and milk or water the rest of the day.

* Josie loves wipes! She's forever bringing the box of wipes around the house and pulling out a bunch to clean her baby or wipe her baby's nose. If I could only get her to focus that obsession on wiping down some counters or something! Maybe one day :) If I had a dime for every time in a day that I say, "just one wipe, Josie!", I would be one rich girl!

* Josie loves to read! She mostly wants to read at night time. The three books that she likes the most right now are: 5 little monkeys, the Dog book and Llama Llama Red Pajama. She actually even sleeps with these books at night (along with her bunny!)

  1. We also LOVE "wipeys" at this house and Meg says Llama llama red pajama makes her sad, so she won't read it anymore .
