Ella woke up near 7:30 not even begging for food and she was content in her crib. She woke up at midnight and had a snack so that's why. I really need to get her to eat more at night or something so she's not starving when she wakes up.

She nursed and had a wet diaper after but I still asked her if she wanted to pee in the potty. Well she walked over to it so I sat her on it and she peed almost right away!  I'm so proud of her.

We played and hung out a little but had to get ready to go.   We ran at 9. Well we were a little late so we started a little late.   Ella whined almost the entire time. She hates the stroller for runs nowadays. She was fine last week in the double so maybe she likes a friend there. This is more reason I want to buy a cheap double BOB and then I can push Ella and a friend at least once a week and maybe she won't be so annoying.  We did intervals on the run.

Ella and Clara played after for an hour. They had fun.

We came home and I fed Ella.  She was a good eater.

A little later I wanted to change her diaper so told her to come with me to her room. She was slow moving so I backtracked and she was trying to push her new adirondack chair. So I picked her up and she held it. It was so cute.  After that awful diaper change we hung out in there a bit.  Then I asked her if she had to use the potty before her nap and she went right over and sat on it. After I removed her diaper she peed about 2 seconds later.  She's such a big girl.   Too bad that also means she learned to take her diaper off. I'm not happy about how she can take off the velcro.

We played on her chair some more and had some jams on.  Then she starts signing more. I have no idea what she wants. We always use more with food so I ask if she wanted milk. She shook her head no. It was about nap time that's why I suggested milk.  Then she signs to eat. This was the first time unprompted or without my signing it first that she did it!  She's such a big girl. Well we went back out and ate some fruit.

So by 2nd lunch she peed in the potty twice and had 2 diaper changes!

She woke up from her nap and it was a shorter nap than normal. She wasn't super happy.  Then we called my mom on the phone. At first she was excited but then couldn't see her and cried. So we put her on a google+ hangout and she was so happy. She wanted to see my mom. It's so funny how the technology is for her. We were on the hangout for quite some time that during it I asked if she had to use the potty and then she went in and did. She impresses me!

We ordered pizza for dinner. I fed Ella first thinking she'd be asleep by the time it arrives. It's so funny how Ella knows a pizza box and tried to get at it and then immediately went to her high chair so that she could get in it to get some food.

She was asleep by 9:10

Overall she peed 4 times in the potty and almost made it but didn't 2 other times.
