This is awesome! Sounds like everyone is doing great!
I havent started to try PT with Natalie but Ive been thinking about it. She tells me when she has to pee or poop, so Im thinking she knows the feeling. I just havent had the want to do it myself yet. I did buy a small downstairs potty. I think it will be a good thing to try during the colder months when im trapped at home anyways..
I cant believe most of kids like to brush their teeth.. I guess Natalie does like to do it on her own, but its not correct. She just kinda sucks the tp off and then rubs it a little and she does. Then I try and I basically have to hold all limbs!
Natalie is still talking alot. She has been since around a year. Its just getting better. NOW she is throwing more fits. Seriously she is my child.. I thought she wasnt going to do the fits because she knows how to talk, but its just because she wants what she wants when she wants it..
After her birthday I was kinda like CRap I have a girl.. LOL!! I mean really boy or girls, there just babies for awhile but for her birthday she got all kinda of girly things like a tutu, babies, strollers, a pack n play??? and dresses and it just hit me, that my house is going to be full girly things.. like DORA AND PRINCESS STUFF!! Its gonna be weird.. I have already done that with my oldest, and now its like Dejavu.. Im doing it again.. lol
Other than that everything is good..

We have not even started potty training yet, although I think she is picking up the idea since she started daycare cause she will constantly tell me "go potty" while taking off her pants. She just wants to sit on the toilet lid in her diaper, goofy kid. I am putting training off though, cause I don't feel like dealing with accidents.
She doesn't mind brushing her teeth, but yeah, she more likes to chew on the toothbrush. I usually tell her its my turn to brush her teeth first, then she gets her turn.
Isabelle got a Dora doll from one of my friends for her birthday and she was so excited when she opened it. And she has a tutu which she loves to dress up in, so yeah we have the girly stuff going on here too. She is actually really funny with the tutu, she will ask me to put it on, then she will grab my baseball cap I gave her play with and put it on backwards since it doesn't fit frontwards, grab her purse and put it over her shoulder and tell me "bye bye, see you later" lol! Its quite the outfit, I'll have to post a pic sometime.
We've not tried potty training. He might be sort-of ready b/c he will usually tell me before he poops, but I'm not ready to deal with all that yet.
He is just like Natalie brushing his teeth. He loves to do it HIMSELF, which consists of him sucking and chewing on the toothbrush, but then I have to literally hold him down while he is flailing and thrashing around to try and get his teeth brushed at least a little. Most of the time I just let him do it, then do the hold him down thing once a week.
He loves learning stuff! So different from his sister! He knows his letters, phonics, numbers 1 - 20, will actually count objects, colors (though most of the time he tells me everything is either green or yellow), some shapes (mostly will tell me it's a square, but he kind of gets circle and triangle). He also likes to copy his sister all the time, and has learned to do forward rolls which is really cute to watch.
Clara hates the potty as well as having her teeth brushed, basically anything that is not her idea at the moment is a crappy idea and she's vocal about letting you know it. She's a brute force to be reckoned with at this particular stage so I just sort of avoid confrontation with her. DS1 went through a similar stage with the teeth thing so I'm just on auto pilot with her like I did with him. She'll come around and want to do it and then all will be sunshine and roses again.
She is talking nonstop and has better grammar, a bigger vocabulary and better annunciation than 4 year old DS1. She also has a scream that can shatter glass. Have I mentioned she's sort of going through a stage where everyone around her can suck it and she's the queen!? She's developmentally farther ahead than DS1 was at this age but she's got all this "power" and she's gotten a bit power hungry now. Most days I'd trade her for a big mac but she does tell me "I wub you" at the perfect times and it keeps me from actually selling her on ebay so we're just floating along until she gets a handle on the attitude. I'm guessing another 20 years and we ought to be the best of friends LOL. My mom would like to tell everyone that this child is finally my pay back, evidently she is my mini me, which would be why we butt heads so hard I'd imagine
