Ada’s Potty Training

Ada has been good about going pee, but rather than go poop in the toilet, she’d rather just not go. Well after three days of this, she finally has gone (just as Dalen was web-shopping for Pedia-Lax), and has been crying about it for five minutes.

When she finally got hold of herself long enough to say anything, she told us why she was crying:

“I sad because I poopied too hard”

Ada at Lake Calhoun

Ada and I took a bike ride to Lake Calhoun to throw rocks into the lake. We sat on the edge next to a small pier and dug up small rocks in the sand to throw.

Just as exciting, it decided to rain just as we were at the far end of the lake, although it was only for five minutes or so.

Ada Sleeping

Ada has lots of funny sleeping positions.

Lately, she plays a game with me when it is time for bed. She hides under her blanket and calls for me. I usually creep up to her and put my face right next to hers so that when she lowers her blanket she sees me right there and giggles. This could go on for thirty minutes if I gave her the option.

I’m not going as far as saying that she’s still hiding on me when she falls asleep, but she looks pretty funny – almost night after night. Both of these were taken late with a flash. Somehow I don’t think she noticed.

Apparently last night she put all of her animals around herself and was sitting up when Dalen went to check on her.

Earlier in the year we went out to Boston Garden Restaurant near the theatre on Main Street in Hopkins. While Liam and Helena were watching other kids play video games, I took this.
