Tot School: Grace's Week (14 Months & 33 months)

I had grand intentions for this week, but we didn't get as much done as I had hoped! My pictures were mostly of Grace, so here's what she did this week:

We had unseasonably warm weather, so we went on several walks:

Grace really enjoyed our busy gears this week:

And this busy box toy. She just figured out how to push the button to make the panda come up-- she's so proud of herself!

She's started standing a little bit more. She's figured out how to stand with her back to an object, so she's learning better how to be aligned.

Jonathan got a doll to help with potty training and she became quite the little mother:

She decided that she wanted the bottle herself
Jonathan's Week

Jonathan and I did do a little bit of "Tot School" this week-- mostly reading about robots and rockets. I think I'll carry some of the ideas into next week. One thing that is so fun to see is that he's really developed good phonological awareness recently. He's started pointing out to me when words rhyme and can tell me what letter a lot of words start with. It's amazing to see how quickly this has developed! I'm thinking about starting working on reading after Christmas. Any recommendations on what to use?

Next week is also... potty training {enter ominous music}. He's 33 months old and he will go potty every time I put him on the potty, but he won't initiate. He knows he's gone potty-- but won't tell me beforehand! So, we're going to move to big boy pants and we'll see how it goes! Any advice?

Mom's Favorite 

I love seeing my children be sweet to one another!  (I promise it's not a choke hold!)

See what other Moms are doing over at 1+1+1=1! Have a great week!

My son (almost 3-1/2) has quickly developed that phonetical awareness too - it is just amazing!! 1+1+1 has a great pre-reading section, and she mentions the Bob book series (we found them at our library). Here's a link to a post she did
Just an idea for starters.

Let me know how the potty training goes. Mine is 38 months old and still not telling me before she has to go. We've tried a lot of different things! Next week might just try "cold turkey" big girl underwear next week.

We're potty training too (23 months) but he has gone on the potty since 6 months old. He doesn't tell me either, I just put him on and he goes. We cloth diaper, so I think that helped him a lot. I am still not ready for undies in public!!!

Looks like a great week despite you not getting as much done as you wanted. It seems like every week is that way in our house!

33 month old boy here and he sometimes tells me when he has gone but very rarely. He still seems so unaware and uninterested that I don't think he's ready to start trying but maybe that's just me being nervous. I don't want to push him and make him resistant to the idea.
