Latest Stats about Tobias

So it’s time again for the stats update.
We went to the Mutterberatung on Friday so here’s what was recorded this time:
Tobias, at 23months 22days, measured 90cm tall, weighed 13.7kg & is in the 75% for his age in terms of height & weight.

Everyone has been telling us that we must remember to measure at 2years so we would know his final height – it’s supposed to be (Height at 2years X 2 = Final Height). So this makes Tobi’s final height at 180cm – we’ll have to wait another 16years at least to find out if this is true – so stay tuned 😉

i think that Tobias has ingrowing toenails – it runs on my side of the family, both myself & my bro have it. Tobi hates to get his toenails trimmed, he cries. He’s really good about the fingernails – he’ll put his hand out & watch me trim them. But toenails!! no way!!! He now has a little hard patch of skin just below the corner of the right side of his left big toe – it seems to be growing (has been there for a couple of weeks now). The nurse said we should keep an eye on it, if it gets painful or red or grows fast, we need to go to the doc – otherwise she thinks it might go away on its own – she has no idea what it is exactly – mainly cos Tobi refused to let her have a good look & she didn’t want him crying so didn’t force the issue. Let’s pray that all is well & trimming his toenails will get easier.

Here’s a pic of cool boy with his cool daddy:

We are both waiting for Walt to get back tomorrow morning.

Preparing for Potty Training

We have began preparations for potty training. Not really potty training yet – just intorducing Tobias to the idea of going to the toilet & using his toilet seat (potty).

Here’s some pics of the preparations:
Here Tobias is trying on his “Big Boy Pants”

Here Tobias is sitting on his “potty”, with his pants on, just to get used to the idea of sitting there.

Doesn’t he look cute in his underwear & sitting on the toilet?? hehehee 😉

When we started this on Thursday, Tobias was really excited & we were really excited too. Within a couple of hours, he was quite happy to sit without his pants & diapers on. But i think we pushed too hard – wanted him to sit too long, trying to wait for something to come out – he got scared. So now we are back to just getting used to the idea of the “potty”.

i just pray i have the patience to see this through.

Correction – to last entry

Yes, i was wrong – i have attended another baby shower besides my own – so the 1st line should read, “…the only other shower i have attended is the O’connors’ & of cos my own …”

Thanks for alerting me to this – obviously i wasn’t quite awake when i wrote the entry – hehehheee 😉

Hopefully i can stay awake till i have to go pick Hubby up from the train station.
