Big Girl

Carly is becoming such a big girl! Here are some things she does that makes me realize that she's not my "baby" anymore.

- She will answer any question you ask her with a nod, either yes or no, and it's usually the right answer. The "yes" nod is quite humorous because she uses her entire head/neck.

- She sat on the potty today. I knew she was going #2 in her diaper and asked her if she wanted to sit on the potty. She nodded "yes". She had already stunk up the diaper but after I got her cleaned up we went and sat on the potty. I'm sure at 16 months she's really not ready but it can't hurt, right?

- She wants all her food either on a plate or in a bowl and wants to try to use silverware with it. She also does not want you to cut up or break up her food. She's a big girl and wants to take bites. Only she shovels in anything you give her so you really have to hold the cracker, the sandwich or whatever else it is and let her take bites.
