My child just used his words to tell me he needed a new diaper! A true milestone!

  • Lewis: *eyebrows raised* Diaper?
  • Me: Did you poop?
  • Lewis: Poop!
  • Me: OK let’s go change your diaper.
  • Lewis: Diaper! OK!

It is meaningful because a) wow! we had a conversation! and b) he has enough body awareness now to realize that he pooped! I suppose this is both the first step towards full sentences and towards potty training. I can almost see him as a fully functioning, grown up human… if I squint.
