Elijah is potty trained. Both boys still wear pull-ups to bed, but other than that, Lavella's the only one that I need to change during the day.
It happened sort of suddenly -- he was showing an interest in going to the bathroom "like a big guy" and then when we were in Italy, everything just sort of came together. Not an ideal moment for potty training, but we grabbed the moment when it presented itself!
Lavella is moving towards being weaned. She had her first bottle a few days ago and loves it. She still deeply enjoys nursing too though, so we'll continue to do that for a while, I think. (She also eats pretty much anything that the boys are eating by this point.)
Lavella loves playing with her big brothers. If she's awake during their nap/quiet time (sometimes she wakes up before Elijah does), she then tries to crawl through the house yelling for them, and I have to catch her.
She's got 6 teeth now, with more on the way coming in on the bottom. She can say "Dada", "Ammm" (Mommy), Andrew and Elijah (both indistinguishable unless you know what she's trying to say),"Hi-yo" (Hello), waves goodbye, and shakes her head yes and no (especially no, of course).
Lavella cruises around all of the furniture, and can push her walking toy across the house, steering around corners and turning around when she hits the wall, but refuses to even just stand by herself.
Andrew keeps a good eye on Elijah and Lavella for the most part. In the picture above, he had just been pushing them around in the laundry basket while they read books. So cute!
I will post soon about making Red Velvet cupcakes (along with recipe of course), which Andrew and Elijah both decorated by themselves (mostly)! Also I recently made my own curry powder, which I'll share as well.
