Potty Training

We are starting to have some success with potty training! Jaycie is often requesting to wear "big girl panties" and will use the potty when she has them on, I am so proud of her. We have a chart & she has been doing so well, I promised her a new toy after she got 10 stickers. Today she chose to make a lamb at build-a-bear :) What made me smile even more than achieving this milestone was the outfit she chose for her lamb....scrubs! Out of all the pretty dresses and costumes in the whole store, she asked for scrubs and a stethescope and told me "baa baa like mommy." Ok, I cried because it made me realize how much she understands and loves what I do. Who knows, maybe my boo will be in health care when she grows up.

After our build-a-bear outing we went to Steak & Shake for a burger and milkshakes, YUM!

New Blog

Ok, I am FINALLY starting this blog as a way to document all the silly things by little girl does on a daily basis. I have been horrible at keeping a baby book and am so afraid I am going to start forgetting all her here we go :)

I want to start with a recent silly statement. Jaycie & I stayed at Disney's PopCentury resort the other night (9/23). We were in the Magic Kingdom until they closed at 8, took the bus back to the hotel and arrived a little after 9pm. She saw a splash-park area and wanted to play but we didn't have a swimmy diaper on....thought I could convince her to go to the room for one and sneakily put her to bed. Fat chance :) She asked if we could go swimming, I agreed. Why not, it was late but who cares? Well, we were in the pool, swimming and Jaycie was in her "tubey." She starts swimming in circles singing, "simming in the dark, simming in the dark," and smiling like she was all that! Too adorable and I hope I don't ever forget that moment.

Here are some pics from that trip.
