Laura: It's been very very busy, but just in the past few weeks, we've gone from one or two catches a week to too many a day to count. She's actively signing, again in the past week, or at least I'm finally noticing. No poop catches, though. In time...

David: In the meantime, in the past few months, he's gone from knowing what he is doing and doing what and where he feels like it to never having accidents unless sick or overtired. He's easily entertained by eliminating in unusual ways -- watering the grass, standing in a silly position over a potty chair, etc.

Laura's stool has been weird.  For a few days we had butterscotch pudding, then a few days of nothing.  This morning was a very forceful explosion w/ a soft but formed piece in the center of liquid.  I wish I knew what was going on!

You know, you have to love that maternal intuition. Even when you're not on the ball with EC, and I confess to being really slack, it's still there. This morning, I thought "Oh, Laura must have pooped!" but when I checked her diaper, it was clean, so I knew it was time to potty her. I sat in my chair, half awake, looking arond the room for the potty chair. Suddenly she started to poop so I automatically cupped my hand under her butt to catch the worst of it. Which I did, though it spattered hither and yon, getting my lap, the floor and the chair between my legs. I just have to work on having the potty easily accessible! But that totally would have been a poop catch if my toddler didn't keep moving the darn potties around the house on me.

Oh, life is frustrating at times.  He's got total bladder and bowel control but often just doesn't care.  But three steps forward, two back is still one net gain, right?  Today he ran in and told me he'd pooped, so I went and checked... and he'd taken himself to the potty and pooped there.  GOOD JOB!

In the meantime, Laura's been a slow process, due to the stress going on ... but I try to offer at least once a day and change her as soon as she urinates.  Last night, she woke up and asked me to take her at 4AM.  I'd be a lot more thrilled if she went to sleep afterwards, though.

I tried to take Laura to the potty for an after nap pee. SHe wasn't fussy, but instead, once I put her on the potty, she fell back asleep. It was very cute.

Got my potty bowl, got my wee man today. Tried the bowl and it fits on my lap perfectly. LOOOOVE it. Caught a pee!

WOOHOOO!!!! Day 15 and I had my first poop catch! It wasn't just timing, either. She was naked and fussy and I could just TELL. Not bad, considering how few times I've tried so far. Actually, I've caught almost every time I've tried, which is quite entertaining. I'd forgotten how much fun EC is. I didn't haven early this much fun with David, though. I was really stressed out about being caught and feeling silly and not being really sure it would work.

I've ordered a potty bowl for Laura and a wee man for David. I'm very excited about both. :)

Sorry for not updating sooner, but life's been hectic.  I gave birth to Laura Rose on 1/18.  We've had several pee catches this week though we're starting off slowly.  It's all good. I'll make a new icon soon, when I get to it.
