Misc August Photos

First day of August summer camp, theme was wild animals!

August 14
We started naked potty training today and you have done really well! You are 2 years and 7 months. There were only 2 accidents today, one tiny one where you made it to the potty and one big one where you were tooting and I think the pee coming out just confused you. In the morning, after a few times of successfully going pee you kept coming over and sitting on the potty for a few seconds each time and then getting up and leaving. You started asking for a diaper change and that's when it looked like you were going to poop. I tried to convince you to sit on the potty to poop, but you started to panic, and I didn't want to add anymore stress so I put a pull-up on you and you pooped right away. We'll work on the poop later. The best thing about rewarding Autumn's potty training with M&Ms is that she insists that we get the same number of candies as she does.

Second day of potty training. Before you and Daddy went to feed the ducks this morning you peed on the potty. Because you did that we let you wear some training panties and when you saw that you could wear them you smiled and said "they're boo-tiful!" You were so excited! You stayed dry at the duck pond and came home and peed when you needed to. You had one accident, and I think it was because you had the training pants on. You've gone a few times on your own without me reminding you. This is going really well so far!

Can I just call this day done? Autumn and I were both just crying on the kitchen floor. Ain't glamorous, folks. Autumn had been crying and whining for awhile before I joined in. She stopped crying, then started again and pointed to her face and said, "You're doing this!" in awe.

At 6:40 I turned off my alarm because 7:20 was just too early to get up. At 7:10 my other "alarm" said, "Momma, you awake?!"

During a stressful drive home from a MOMS Club event where Autumn thought we were leaving HER baby doll (when it was actually Meghan's) and she was bursting into tears every 30 seconds and I was getting shaky with hunger, I pulled out a fruit bar to eat. Autumn stopped crying and said, "What are you eating, Momma?" "A fruit bar or I'm going to lose it." "Lose what? What did you lost, Momma?"

This morning at my doctor's office I took Autumn to the bathroom. We were walking back down the hall after she had done her business and Autumn sees her Daddy across the waiting room. So she yells out, "I PEED!"

At Petco and Autumn is looking at the ferrets, hamsters and "skinny pigs"

Summer - You say "stumblelick" as a sort of "oh darn" kind of phrase. If something doesn't go right you say, "Stumblelick!"

"I won the contest!" "I'm going to win the contest!"

Meet the Teacher

Autumn had her meet the teacher today. It went great! Her new teachers seem really great and supportive of potty training. We are sending her in panties for the first day with lots of changes of clothes, but I think she'll do great.

Cousin Visit

Autumn's cousins were in town for a visit and we met at their grandparents' house to swim. We had just cut Autumn's hair again and she looked so cute! It was shorter than the last time we cut it.

Here she is dancing like crazy!  With her cousins beside her.

Here is Grandpa reading to his grandchildren.

Later in the week they came over to our house.  Autumn had a blast!

You can see how short her hair is here.  And so cute!
