So my long-term goals with Zoe are potty training her and weaning her. The first is going swimmingly. She peed twice on the potty today! So I think she will be mostly trained by the time she starts school (5 months from now). I'm going to get her some underwear soon.

The second will be harder. I was talking to another mom who nursed somewhat late (her son was 2 when she stopped). She recommended being away from your child for a few hours each day (preschool will fit the bill) and NOT nursing to "reunite" - instead finding some other way to reunite when school is over. And replacing nursing sessions with milk or juice in a cup. We shall see. I'm going to start doing this (very gradually) when she starts preschool.

In the meantime, we are enjoying the spring weather. It's nice to be outside again.

I can't believe how fast your babies are growing up. We were enjoying spring over last weekend; now we have snow on the ground!

Yes, I keep hearing about snow on Facebook :) Hopefully we won't get any.
