1) Yesterday was an exciting day for us since Rafi pooped in his potty for the first time. He often likes to sit on his potty while we read him his potty book, and usually makes very dramatic sounds as he pretends to go potty. The night before it seemed like he was making a real effort to go, but couldn't muster it! Last night, after his bath, he managed a little poop and we were so proud.. as was he. We all clapped. And when ever I say, 'wow, Rafi, you pooped in your potty', we all start to clap. No pee pees yet, but we'll see what happens over the next few weeks.
2) Raf has discovered muddy puddles... namely, jumping in them. He gets absolutely soaking, and since it's mud season here, he also gets absolutely filthy. Walks take a LONG time since we can't drag him from the puddle. He loves it. Here is is a couple of weeks ago.
3) Raf at last has a lovey! He used to sleep with trains and taken them everywhere, but he's really loving Shaun the Sheep and we found a Timmy Sheep (spin off of Shaun, I think) and he loves it. He calls it baby sheep and it goes every where with him. This morning he threw his baby doll out of its stroller and put in baby sheep and fed the sheep his milk. Raf is really passionate about sheep, right now, just like he was about peppa and Thomas Train, so I'm not sure how long it'll last.
