Firsts and Lasts

Julia wore training pants in public for the first time today. She stayed dry the rest of the day!

She also learned to jump with both feet at the same time. She'd been practicing for a long time so it was great to see her finally be able to do it.

There aren't any pictures, but it's still just as exciting - she can now climb up the last level of the play structure at our local McDonald's. No more climbing in there to help her. Wahoo!!!!


I think today is going to have to be the last day of ice cream cones as a reward for Julia p**ping in the p*tty. She's gone every day for almost a week and twice today. We're going to gain 10 pounds if we keep this up!

She painted her last picture at ECFE today.
This year went way too fast!

Oh how I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the Minnesota Early Childhood Ed Program!!!

What is it about using a self timer that make people look straight into the camera?!?! Would you believe this is the only picture I took!?!!?


  1. So glad for the potty training. I was so relieved (ha ha) when that time was over! :)

    I can't believe you only took one picture! Can you say stunned?! LOL!

  2. Congrats on moving on up in the Potty Training world. That's big!

    And great shot. That was totally lucky.

  3. Big Day for your baby Girl! We had a similar monumental event with our middle babe a couple of years ago. She got her first haircut and stayed dry all day in "big girl panties" all in the same day....

    ....just so you know, she barely had hair till she was 2.

    Oh, and as for the McDonald's play structure...

    I once got stuck in one of those blast contraptions. It was ugly!

    Congrats on your growing goes way too fast!

  4. Congratulations, Sister Bear! I can only hope and pray that Emma's goes as smooth!

    I so miss MN's ECFE program. Did you know Wisconsin doesn't have a program like that? So sad. At least I have the library playgroup!

  5. Wow! That's great! ...on both counts:)

    Um. question. Where do those training pants come from??? I'm going to be needing some of those:)

  6. great firsts!! Im in potty training mode here, too..but not as close as you!!

    That is amazing that you only took one picture...maybe everyone was looking for the flash?

  7. That is a nice picture of you! And hurray for training pants.
