There's all kinds of shit going on at Casa J, literally!
Julianna has finally mastered the art of pooping on the potty. Yippee! No more diapers (well, except for bedtime). A nice little reprieve before baby number 2.
She was so excited when it finally happened. I have to admit, I had nothing to do with it. I was laying on the couch, (where you can usually find me these days) and she said she has to go potty. She walked to the bathroom, sat down on the big potty, and pushed out a little turd. All of a sudden I heard her yelling, "Mommmy, I did it!!!" It was awesome!
Hubby and I are getting ready to go to California over Labor Day weekend. We have a wedding at Disneyworld. J is staying with her grandma for 4 loooong days. Long for me, but probably not for her because grandma spoils her. She loves spending time with her.
Also, J has been doing really well with her eating. She's been trying all kinds of new things. She still prefers soft foods like pasta, but she ate a piece of cheese and some bread and she's feeding herself more.
Oh and hubby and I finally bought J a big girl bed. It comes next week. She seems excited about it but we'll see. It should'nt be too much of a transition because she's been getting out of her crib for months now. She wakes me up in the morning. I used to have a rule where she couldn't get out of bed, but she would call me endlessly from her room and it got annoying. As soon as she would wake up, she would say, "Mom, I'm awake, I'm awake," over and over until I came into her room. Being the lazy mom that I am, I told her it was okay for her to get out of bed and come see mommy, but that it was not okay to go downstairs by herself. So far she's been really good. I'm a light sleeper anyway, so I would hear her before she even got close to the stairs.
Oh, listen to this. When I first started this blog, I wrote a post about my favorite children's books. One of the ones I listed was titled, "Goodnight Little One," by Salina Yoon. Well guess who e-mailed me a few days back??? The author herself!! It was so awesome. She said she had read the post and wanted to say hello. I couldn't believe it. She has a new book coming out in October called, "Count My Blessings," about a bear who says his prayers and finds something to be thankful for in everyday life. She sent it to me with a personal message to J and she loved it.
I haven't posted in a while so I feel like I have to catch up a bit. Did anyone watch "So You Think You Can Dance?" Can I just say how much I loved Travis! He was awesome. Anyway, can't wait for my regular shows to come back on.
Okay, I'm going to stop rambling now. I've missed you guys. Can't wait to get back into the swing of things. A few more weeks and hopefully I'll feel a little more normal. Hope all is well!!!
