I have been meaning to post about xmas but have been busy and lazy and I just keep forgetting to bring the picture card from the camera to work and usually don't bring my laptop home from work to upload photos. Oh well.
We had a nice 11 day trip to visit both families. P was an angel in the car. One of us sat in the back with her to keep her happy and entertained, but it was worth it to have a 12 hour trip, then a 7 hour trip and then 14 hour trip all go smoothly! We spent xmas with EZ's family in Buffalo and then drove to see my family in Michigan for New Years. P loved running around with all the cousins. I think she is going to like being a big sister (after little sister grows up a bit to play with).
She has started becoming very vocal. Lots of words now all the time, some make sense and some don't, but she is babbling away like she has lots to say. Last night she stated she wanted blueberries which came out somewhat like boobare but I actually realized that was what she was saying. And this morning, she found a heart label on one of the insoles of her shoes and kept saying heart. We haven't ever even used that word yet and she seems to know it (thanks daycare!) She still loves playing peek and boo and is such a fun easy going toddler. She really has a good time and makes me laugh.
We started using the potty this past week too. Not enforcing it by any means, but we put her on it as we get ready for bath at night and then right after. She has actually gone in it twice, but she still doesn't recognize that is what she is doing. We weren't planning on doing this so soon, but most days when I get her report at daycare it says she has tried to use the potty, so we figure we might as well start using it a bit at home too to enforce that.
She also has become super picky on the eating front. She use to be such a great eater and now, she could eat something one day and love it and the next day she won't touch it. Her favorite food right now is crackers (which she says "ta-ta's" for which I find funny).
I'm still cruising along...almost 28 weeks. Are we ready for number 2, absolutely not! I guess we still have about 3 months to get ready!
