Just Us Girls


It was a GORGEOUS day today, so after watching the USA bone it in the World Cup, we hit the park with Auntie Christine. Lucy got her first taste of the swing, and if you can't tell by the look on her face, she is a fan. Ruby got into it too, showing her how to go really really high!

Two significant milestones in our house. One, our littlest monkey is officially weaned. I wanted to go longer but keeping up with it at this point was problematic. At any rate, she's now getting to the point where she can hold her own bottle, as you can see: And in bigger milestone news, our bigger monkey is officially potty-trained!!! As long as we reminder her to go every hour or so, she does great! Big girl! Over a week with no diapers. Color me relieved!!!!!!!!!! Color her proud-pants! Thank you Grandma Genie!! Here she is being a silly girl with the bumbo seat on her head: Now...if only the sun would come out. Come on summer!

Growing Up

Lots of changes happening with our little monkeys these days. Grandma Genie was here this past weekend and the goal was potty training! She spent 4 straight days sitting in the bathroom, plying our girl with bribes and encouragement. Progress was made and, here on day 6, she's still in underwear though she hasn't pooped for 2 days now. However, when she does pee on the potty, the pride in her face shines and I think (hope) that full-on potty using will be imminent. A fluffy black and hot pink tutu awaits for our big girl when she finally poops on the potty. Fingers crossed..... Lucy is also passing some developmental milestones. She's sitting up, for one. She loves to sit and chew her toys either surrounded by pillows or in the high chair. She also started solids yesterday. See her face for her first taste of avocado? Mmm...and today she had some rice cereal. She loved it! Kept grabbing the spoon and opening her mouth wide for more like a little birdy. Only disadvantage is that since she's still spitting up, now we get additional chunks. Yummy. Anyway, we had a lovely time with Grandma Genie and were so sad to see her go!! And now, here's to successfully passing more milestones!
