Oatmeal and Tears

Oatmeal and Tears
Originally uploaded by sammi's mom

Sammi and I went to the DSANV Spring Picnic at Bull Run Park yesterday. Steve was at a Special Olympics meet, so it was just the two of us, along with another DSANV mom and her son, to whom we gave a ride. Samantha had already had her morning nap, but was just so cranky! She was definitely not that into it. The weather was wonderful, but the ground was soaked through from all the rain, and everything was muddy. I think she would have had a better time if she could have played out on the grass, rather than being confined to the chilly, dark pavillion or the stone-covered driveway area. She enjoyed the petting zoo, and got to see a real sheep and real ducks!

On another topic, something that's terribly exciting to us, Steve went into her room yesterday shortly after she had been put down for a nap. She looked up at him and said, "poo poo" and tapped her bottom! So Steve asked her, "did you do a poo?", and she smiled, so he checked her nappy, and sure enough, she did!!! This is exciting on so many levels. Dr. Lewanda (her geneticist) seemed to think at their last visit that Sammi should have a little potty to sit on and get used to in preparation for potty training. We, of course, thought it was way too soon, but we got one and I've been setting her on it and talking to her about it when I'm in there myself. Sammi's very bright, and I'm pretty sure she'll get it sooner than we can imagine.

WOW! Isn't she just 2 (well, almost?) I didn't even try to potty train Brandon until he was 3.
