Three monthiversary

Emily started smiling in earnest this past month.  It's very gratifying to see her face split into a wide grin as soon as you come into view.  She just loves to have conversations and really responds to the Itsy Bitsy Spider.  Her head control is coming along, and just today she was trying desperately to throw herself onto her back from her tummy (she was only bottom-half successful).  Emily came along a month early but she's hitting all her milestones like a champ.  Savouring every baby moment with this one!

It's Underwear Time

We potty trained Caitlin over the long weekend.  We put underwear on her on Saturday afternoon and haven't had any accidents since - we just keep reminding her to let us know when she has to go potty.  Before this she had already been sitting on the potty regularly, so the only new thing was to sit on it EVERY time.  After a couple accident-free days we ventured out to a play date, then a park... and that was that.  I think we were more afraid of starting the process than she was.  She's still wearing pull-ups at night because we don't want to deal with two kids waking up in the middle of the night, so once Emily starts sleeping through the night we'll go back to it.  But it's a good start!

I'm so happy they'll always have each other.

Future Fashionista

This is what happens when toddlers choose their own outfits.  Yes, we did let her go to daycare like this.
