There’s big happenings going on in the Malloy family.
1. We’ve started potty training with Asante. It’s going great. He’s taken well to the “just put underwear on and see what happens” method. I’m guessing he just doesn’t want to pee on his new Elmo undies :).
2. Tonight we took away the pacifier. After an hour of crying, he fell asleep. We’ll see what happens when he wakes up in the middle of the night looking for it. We haven’t thrown away the pacifiers though. I’m not sure what we’re waiting for, but I feel more secure knowing that they are there, just in case :).
3. Today was also day one of the weaning process for Aly. I think I have a 8-week plan (ish) to stop nursing…this will put her at about 10 months. WAY longer than I ever planned. Right now we’re at a bottle a day. She doesn’t like it, but she’ll get used to it.
Anyway, lots of changes. We figured this would be the best time…I’ll be done with school in a couple weeks, so will have the time and energy to devote to these energy-consuming parenting tasks. Pray for us for patience, and the kids for flexibility! They’ve been rock stars so far.
