The ABC's and other milestones

Last Tuesday, my daughter shocked me (no, not literally...that would be bad). As we snuggled and were getting ready to enter mid-day dreamland, she told me she wanted to sing a song. This is what I heard:

It took me a second to realize I wasn't dreaming and that my little baby of almost 3 years is really turning into a little girl before my very eyes! Seriously...where DOES the time go???

I'm also happy to report that Peanut is officially and FULLY potty-trained! Yup, that means no more diapers for bedtimes (even overnight), and the business from the backend is even done on the potty. It's amazing what a "We'll buy you a big toy" bribe can do in a matter of a few weeks. :o) She chose her prize and got it last week: a stuffed dinosaur from Build-A-Bear. No, really...that's what she chose, and now Dinosaur is involved in decision-making and all kinds of daily activities and outings. I'll get a picture on here once I remember to take one. :o)

Now, the last thing to accomplish this month would be...you guessed it, labor and delivery! Oh, that and still picking a name for this little boy. All will come in good time, I'm sure! :o)

I can't take how adorable she is! :) Her singing is even cuter than you described when we chatted the other day. Thanks for posting the video!

That is just too, too cute. Can she come to Hawaii and teach Isabella that, please? The potty training, too! LOL...she will be singing songs to her baby brother in no time!
