Warning *** this post has lots of "bathroom" talk!
uh-oh, I hope no one has stopped reading my blog due to lack of posts... I have been really busy with Primary, and then we had Elliott's parents in town. That was really fun, but kept us moving!
Today Elliott and I went bed shopping for Emma. That is right, she has graduated out of her crib... She is pretty wiggly when she sleeps, and the crib's size is too small. I guess I had better hurry and get her quilt made. I am most excited about this milestone because we decided when Emma gets her new bed, we are going to cut her pacifiers, so she can be done with them. Hopefully this won't be too truamatic!
Emma also is embarking on a second milestone... using the potty! Actually, I have been trying for a couple of days to get her to use the toilet, but she refuses to go on it... a little frightening I guess. Yesterday I even bought her a Cinderella Barbie (as the ultimate reward) and lots of princess and Elmo underwear. Each time she uses the toilet, she gets a starburst, and on her 5th poop in the toilet, she will get the Cinderella. However, she wasn't wanting to even get on the toilet, so I bought her a little toilet, which we dubbed her "princess" toilet. I am going to get princess stickers for her to decorate it with each time she uses it! She wouldn't get off of it this morning, although she didn't actually do anything in it yet. I am going to try again when she wakes up from her nap.
Wow--- this means she actually will be a little girl and no longer a baby...
