We are happy to report she is doing absolutely wonderful!!! She loves to go like a big girl on the potty .... yes, #1 and #2. She's even started going on the potty without us prompting her, which creates a problem if I'm not paying close attention. After sneaking off and doing her business, she then attempts to empty the potty, which as you can imagine, creates quite a mess.
Another proud parenting moment: our little sponge seems to be soaking up some good manners, which is oh so cute. Tonight Aron sneezed, and our not yet 2 year old sweetly sang, "Bless you, daddy, bless you, daddy." And while sitting on the potty, "Oops! Toot! Es-cuse me."
However, we have a ways to go in the sharing department. I was in the nursery this morning and observed my gentle Love yell, "NOOOO!" to any baby who came close to playing with her toy. Then a sweet little one year old bobbled up to me and placed her hand on my leg; Belle looked sternly at her & said, "No, no. This my mommy." Yeah...we're still working on the sharing.
Back to work on Monday. Still chipping away at the student loans. Tomorrow Aron & Belle are at home by themselves for the holiday so he's going to try to get his recording equipment to work on his work laptop. I sure hope so. I'm dying for him to start recording his acoustic folk stuff. And he's got 2 new worship songs that are really good. So we'll cross our fingers (and say a little prayer too!).
