Popo and Spit

I know, I know, I know, two very yucky things you wouldn't expect this sweet girl to be doing. (Well, not me talking about her doing anyway). But I am going to talk about them none the less.

I am actually very excited about the popo part. Addison has started coming to me and telling me "Popo!" BEFORE she goes popo. She'll run to me, say, "Popo." Then lean over and start grunting. Why is this so exciting you may ask....well, she's one step closer to potty training. She knows what popo is. "Why is that exciting" you may ask, and considering that I will probably have to clean up many messes once she starts potty training, it really isn't that exciting. What IS exciting though is what will happen once she is fully potty trained. NO MORE DIAPERS!!! Now that IS exciting. Te he he.

Next, Spit. Well, Addison and I always brush our teeth together in the mornings before we leave. Me with my toothbrush and toothpaste, and her with her...well, her dad's really, but don't tell him...toothbrush and no toothpaste. She basically just chews on the toothbrush while I brush. But lately she has noticed that I spit once I'm done. I usually hold her while we're brushing our teeth, so lately she has leaned forward over the sink and spit into it. It was actually very cute...until she learned that you can actually make something come out of your mouth when you spit..namely saliva. Yuck!

Now she thinks it's so funny to spit on things. I am trying to teach her not to by taking away whatever it is she spits on. It is working for the most part, but I still catch her spitting on things every once in a while. I was just trying to encourage her to brush her teeth! Who would have thought such a bad thing could have come from trying to do something good.

Okay, I've seen kids do the poop thing, but spit?! I've never even HEARD of a baby doing that before. That is hilarious!! (Probably more so to me than it is to you!)
