Three Things 4/25/11- Potty Training, Sebastian, and Easter With The Family


Three Grateful Things

1- It’s official!! She is going on the potty!!!

With both of my girls, I swear to God, I never thought they would ever be potty trained. My oldest was three and a half when she finally conquered the potty and I honestly thought I would be putting my youngest on the bus in a pull-up.


She showed no interest in going on the potty. All of my friends’ kids were either going potty on their chairs, pretending to go on their potties, sleeping in pull-ups and my child could care less if she sat in her pee all day long.

Then three weeks ago I got inspired.

 We. Are. Doin’. This.

As of today she is officially no longer wearing a diaper (I gave them all away) and peeing by herself on the big potty!! Whew. Now we just need to work on going #2. Baby steps, people, baby steps…..

** Update- as of this morning we are officially potty trained…..if you get the drift!!! Woohoo!!!!***


2-  A cute little owl landed in my mailbox.


His name is Sebastian and he is an early birthday present from my mama. Isn’t he adorable? You know how I blogged about my love of all things owl-y? Well, it turns out I have not one owl-like thing in my home so my mom made sure this was remedied. I am already so in love with good ole’ Sebastian and he is now our official “guard owl”.


3- Easter with the fam……….

We made the three-hour trip twice in one day to spend Easter Sunday with my family and it was completely worth it.

A few kinks…Ellie got a touch of car sickness on the way down in addition to having to make a couple of pit stops due to now being diaper-free (which I can already see how much fun this will be with ALL my family living within a long car ride away); oh and Mike hit a bird outside the Braidwood Inn near Coal City (any Planes Trains and Automobile fans will know that place):

Poor little birdie didn’t stand a chance. Oh well, at least it wasn’t a bunny?
This bunny didn’t stand a chance though.

My mom made this cake and it was unbelievable. From scratch red velvet cake with homemade cream cheese frosting (which I ate by the spoonfuls from the bowl).


Isn’t he cute? Bunny dip made with cream cheese, green onions, horseradish….a bunch of other great stuff….will post the recipe for this later.  I think the bunny was down to his belly by the end of the day.

Happy Monday peeps!
