We saw the doctor for Cezanne’s 18 month visit and all seems to be on track. She is growing up and we are feeling better about her “stats”, she has climbed a bit and is doing well in all area according to the doctor. Her runny nose and cough are also getting better along with her mood.

Here are her stats as of 12/28/2007

Feeding Myself

Filed under: Milestones — Dad @ 11:15 pm

Christmas morning and I had the camera out and ready, but before we went to check to see if Santa had made a stop at our house we had to have breakfast.

Breakfast is now a joy, Cezanne loves oats and often eats 2 bags of oats, in addition to her stick of yogurt and fruit.

Here is a strip of shots taken at high speed of the self feeding fairy…

Potty Purchased !

Filed under: Just Everyday,Milestones — Dad @ 1:22 pm

Yesterday we officially started ‘Potty Training’ with the purchase of 2 small potties. The plan is to start working on this and hope to see results over the next few weeks. It seems that Cezanne has shown quite an interest in the loo and so we figured while she is so interested to get her to learn to go to the potty.

 Will try take a few photos of her with her new potty…

Gift Exchange

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 1:11 pm

Playgroup this week was a gift exchange between the kids and moms. Cezanne was not having a great day – still a little under the weather from the ear infection or something but seems the rest of her crew had fun.

First Snow

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 12:36 pm

Cezanne got her first taste of the snow… We took her out back to try her sled. It was less successful that we thought, she was just not feeling too well and the cold was a bit much for her…

Cezanne – Artist Blossoms in Bears

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 12:48 am

Cezanne is really getting into drawing. She is not quite able to grasp the concept of not drawing on herself yet, or not chewing on the end of a crayon or marker so we are just working with roller ball pens and regular number 2 pencils. Here are a few photos I took of her in her PJs before her nap.

Ear Infection, Potty Front & Back

Filed under: Doctor Visits,Just Everyday — Dad @ 4:14 pm

It has been a crazy week. Cezanne has been ‘sick’ with a double ear infection. I say ‘sick’because she has shown no sign of really being under the weather and as I sit here now she is sitting on my lap while I type, throwing everything in reach on the ground and trying to help me type…

So we have been administering the medicine for the last few days and just finished the dose and have a doctors appointment in a few minutes to hear if we are ‘all clear’.

On a positive note Cezanne is now able to tell us when she is or has just gone ‘potty’, when we ask she tells us and lets us know ( as if we need to ask ) if it is front ( pee pee ) or back ( poo pee ). She also tells us if it is nap time for Cezanne by putting her hand up to her ear and is really getting pretty clever with the signs.

She is also now starting to solve problems, like ‘how do I see what is on the kitchen counter?’ She takes the step stool in the kitchen, pushes it up against the base cabinets, climbs on the stool and then giggles with delight.

We just got back from the doctor who says she is now all better and that the last bit of fluid in her left ear will clear up on its own so no more medicine…
