We have had a good week around here. Not too much to report as we have spent a huge part of the week focusing on potty training. I am happy to say that we have had a wonderful week with it. Haven has done so well and I am so pleased/surprised/shocked/astounded at how quickly she has understood the bathroom process. She went five days without an accident and the one she has last night was more my fault then hers. We have run errands with no problems. We went and played at a friend's house, too. So I am going to take the leap and say that she is officially day potty-trained. (I am so nervous to say that because it's been Haven's prerogative since the day she was born to make a liar out of me!) Nightime training is a battle I am not yet ready to fight.
It has been a week of realizing just how big Haven is getting. She helped me make Christmas cookies the other day, complete with "painting" them (thanks to Pioneer woman for this great idea!). She is learning 10 new words every day. She says "Bless you" when I sneeze. She has started to say "Oh, man!" in context whether she's excited, frustrated or concerned. Haven has started talking back by either saying, "No" or just yelling at me when she doesn't like what is said to her.
But she is also the sweetest thing...when she wants to be. She still needs kisses on her "bonks" and she always wants mama to cuddle with her at bedtime. The good comes with the bad, especially as Haven is learning and growing into herself.
At least for right this moment today, who she is...is delightful!
