Such a Big Girl!

My "little girl" is turning into such a big girl. For starters, she decided about a month ago that she wanted to start peeing on the potty. It has been such an easy process with her. She hardly ever has accidents and I usually don't have to bug her to go potty. She will just tell me when she needs to go. Hmmm...I wonder if the candy has anything to do with it ;) We didn't start out giving her candy, but when we went from her running around with nothing on bottom to making her wear panties we needed to give her an incentive to tell us so we could help her. Hopefully this won't last too much longer. She now goes almost everywhere with panties, but nap time and bed time are still diaper time.

This week we decided to give the big girl bed a try. She doesn't try to get out of her crib, but baby baby brother is 3 months old now and we want to move him to the crib. So, Sunday night we made the big switch and it went great. There were tears the first couple of nights, but now she goes down with no complaining. She talks about her big girl bed to anyone who will listen. And when she wakes up she wants daddy or I to go in her room and sit on her bed so she can show us how she slept in her big girl bed.Here is her new bed in her new bedroom. We went with butterflies and she loves it!
Here she is getting ready to go to sleep for the night!

I just can't believe my sweet baby girl is growing up so quickly. I love all the new things she is learning to do and am trying so hard to enjoy every moment (which is very hard to do when I am so tired from being up with out lil' buddy).


  1. Awesome! The butterflies are cute for little Moo-Bear! :) And I can already picture some butterflies being painted on the wall around her room to match the bedding. :)

  2. Love it! I look forward to reading more!!! (And I'll say it again, that is one fat cat....I think he should have his own story line!!!)
