I would just like to share a proud dad moment that I got to have today and to some of you, I know it might not be a big deal, but someone may understand!
Emmy is getting so big and doing so many cool things these days but yesterday, she peed on her big girl toilet six times! Four were before I was even home from work and then two more after. She is doing amazingly well at communicating what she needs and is understanding the concept of using her potty and not going in her diaper and it’s amazing!
The cool thing about all of this is that she will let you know something is up and that she needs something by making noises and when you ask her if she needs to go to the bathroom, she shakes her head yes or no and then she either goes or doesn’t. She’s gotten very good at using her head shaking and nodding to let us know whether we’re on the right track or not and it’s quite incredible to me how well she understands language.
Emerson’s ability to most definitely understand most of what we’re saying is a little scary but it is also mind-blowing at the same time. How she went from a blob to an all-hearing, mostly understanding child in just a few short months is beyond me. I feel that she is so wise beyond her years, too.
I thought that I was potty-trained young—and don’t get me wrong, I was—at a year and a half, but Emmy is now a year and four months and is going on the toilet six times in one day! The girl continuously blows me away with everything she’s got going on.
I guess that that’s a proud daddy moment that I just had to share. Girl’s moving up in the world!
I hope you all have a good weekend. Next up: Mama Monday!
