Potty Training with Tia
Today marks a special day in the Ruanto household...
July 5th, we decided to try and potty train Tia since we were staying at home because it is just so darn hot outside! Right after Tia's bath in the morning, I had her put on a cute underwear to have her get really excited. I had her watch the potty training DVD with her Ate Eulla. Then, I explained to Tia what is involved if she went "wee wee" in the potty. On the first day, she ended up going to the potty once and had three accidents. By night time, I had her wear her pull ups.
Today, when she work up, I asked her if she wants to go wee wee in the potty and she screamed out "YES!" so we ran to the potty and she went. It's nearly 5pm and she has gone to her potty for the 4th time and has not had a single accident. I hope this is it! I think she's got the idea!
We promised Tia that on the one week that she has used her potty for her wee wee, we will be buying the piano she has kept visiting along the isles of Target. How exciting!
First day of potty training. Tia 2 got starburst candy for going to the potty.
Tia just woke up and decided to go weewee :)
(Sorry for the wee wee pic, I thought it was a cute picture)
Today, Tia got several stickers and candies for a good job!
When stickers and candies are no longer enough to make them happy, a touch of red lipstick to encourage Tia to follow up with her potty training. That definitely made both girls excited!
Thanks to Ate Eulla for reminding Tia to use the potty.
I ♥ my girls!

Today my little Tia turns 2 1/2. How time flies.
Tia can start to count at 5 and end at 11. Weird that it starts out at 5 but funny! She can sing along to the ABC song and Twinkle, twinkle little star. She has a very good vocabulary! She can even say "I understand" at 2 and a half years old. Tia loves to dress up. She definitely loves to put on lipstick thanks to Tita Liza who introduced a bright red lipstick to her right after she turned 2 at January.
Tia can say her name and if asked how old she is, she will answer loud and clear. She loves to copy whatever her Ate is doing as to how fights escalade from time to time. (hay, i think that's just the way it is) But other than that, my little Tia is growing up to be an awesome little girl!

Tia and her words
Decided to video Tia after she woke up from her nap. She was stuck in one place because she was trying to do her number 2. But since she was in the mood to talk while I was holding the camera, I recorded it with Eulla.

Tia turns 18 Months
Today, Tia turns 18 months. She can say a lot of things now like Mama, Dada, Ate, Lolo, this, ohoh, poo poo, thank you, hi, hello, and bye bye. She can follow directions from Dada and Mama. When Tia finishes her milk, Dada always tells her to put her bottle back in a specific table and she does it. The funniest thing is when Dada ask her to get her own wipes! We have two locations for wipes and she knows which is the closest to her. She knows where to get her snacks and how to turn on the TV and even play with the ipod touch.
Tia loves dancing. She dances even when she sits in her car seat just as long as she knows what music is playing. She gets into the grove when we are playing Party in the USA or songs by Taylor Swift.
Since I have not blogged in so long, Here are pictures of Tia within the month that she turned 18 months.
The many face of Tia.
She loves to pose this way. But on this specific pose, she wanted to show me that she put on powder on herself.

Tia is now 18 months. We decided to get her a new toy. I used to be able to bring Eulla to the park at least a few times a month but now that there are two of them, it's hard to keep an eye on both girls while we are in a park. So we decided even though we are overflowing with toys in the living room, we bought this climber for Tia.

Ahh, finally, time to chill in the swing. While Eulla drives the ship!

I was growing out Eulla's bangs for almost 4 months now but I decided that she looked cuter with bangs so I brought her to The Right Cut. She was thrilled to get a haircut.
Here is her before and after look!

Two weeks ago, Eumir and I decided to finally wean off Tia. We finally did it!!! I can't believe it. I did not even imagine that I would last 14month and 2 weeks breastfeeding but I did it. It has been so long that I have been waking up in the middle of the night to feed Tia. Finally, she is now drinking her milk from a bottle.
Here is my little Tia now! A very happy weaned baby!

Tia turned 10 months old today. She can stand on her own just as long as she has something to hold on to or lean at. She is eating stage 2 Gerber food. She only has two teeth at the bottom which makes it hard to feed her some of the stage 3 food but she does love their snacks. Her favorite is the yogurt melts. She had tried eating nilagang beef soup with rice. That was her first Filipino dish. Daddy is already training Tia to hold a golf club (in this case an iron) because he hopes one day she'll love the sport as much as he does.
