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 never 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!!! Woo hoo!!!!***


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 here? 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!
