Potty Training A One Year Old in One Week - Day One

Potty Training A One Year Old in One Week - Day One

This is a short account of the first day potty training a one year old. Over all I would consider it a success however there was a lot of pee on the floor that needed to be cleaned up. Check out this post to find out the method we're using to potty train our daughter in one week. PS. There are a ton of cute pictures of her in the bath being silly.

She told me later that she remembers vaguely getting tunnel vision and only concentrating on my voice, my voice telling her to breath, breath, breath, like so many times we had done it at home during previous attacks. Finally, the breathing returned to normal (as normal as it could be during contractions) and the man with the needle had arrived.

Now almost two years later, hundreds of dirty diapers and countless temper tantrums and baby cuddles, I have finally given into Charlotte's barrage of request to finish and/or continue the "series" as it were.

Family Photos At Fernridge Christmas Tree Forest

My friend Shana from Life as Wife and Mom blog and her two sweet boys met up with us to do our Christmas Card photos. She is so talented! She really captured our silly family moments and made us look good. My favourite thing about these photos are how easy and fun they were to take. Rather than feeling posed and awkward in front of the camera, Shana captured moments of us just being a family.

Jane and I had the honour of being invited behind the scenes for a blogger tour at the aquarium last month. Ever since Jane was born we have been taking her to the aquarium. There's something about the contrasting tanks and colourful fish that she has always loved even before she could crawl.
