The days are steadily getting better everyday. The kids are playing better and better everyday, and though Randy has been gone A LOT, it is getting better on me every day also. Some days I do have to say I am so happy that bed time comes, but every day is becoming more and more joyful.
Dasha's behavior has drastically improved also. She still tests her limits, which any toddler will do, but when she is corrected, and is in her "time in", she quits crying after a few minutes, where as when we came home sometimes she went 15-20 minutes at a time. Her eye contact has improved so much also during these times. When she has a time in I cradle her in my arms and hold her close and hold her feet, she kicks, and she has to look at me. She does not turn her head and look away any more when she is angry at me. After every time in she has to give me a hug and a kiss and then she always has a huge grin on her face.
Her words are growing we got
Her version of Camden, na, nan
we are working on drink
The talking is still mostly on her terms, but knows that if she wants to get on our laps she has to say up, and she loves to go Bye, Bye!
We sit on the potty about 4 times a day, and usually make the chair play music, and sometimes we get a little extra in the potty, that is not pleasant to clean out! She gives no indication of the #2 business, Camden was a full show of red face, grunting, so I would use the big toilet for those jobs!
Her little mug shot! Though I was not happy the mail man folded the envelope!
