Little Slice of Heaven

*Today I...
spent the afternoon with 3 of my favorite sisters.

*Which consisted of...

..delicious, hi-caloric lunch - chips with salsa and guacamole, fries with ranch, and a chicken caesar salad. Conversation included our girl trip to NEW YORK CITY this fall.

..a couple of hours at the Red Rock Spa. Jacuzzi, steam room (which I disliked), laying poolside, and a swedish massage...divine.

..coming home to a happy daughter who was so delighted to see me and dinner on the table.

..rocking my sweet baby girl before bed.

It doesn't get any better.

She Pooped

Or as we say poopoo stintee.

Today, at 1 year, 11 months, 2 weeks, and 1 day old, my daughter poopoo stinteed in the toilet.

Have I started potty training, you ask? No. A couple of months ago I bought the ring that goes on the toilet and a small potty chair. Every couple of days (or weeks) before bath I would ask her if she wants to sit on the toetoe (that's what we call it). In the beginning, M would sit on it for a couple of seconds and hop down. Now, over the past few weeks she wants nothing to do with the potty and I don't push her. Tonight right before she got into the bath I ask her if she wants to go potty on the toetoe. She says no. I had a feeling she had to go (and was worried we might have an accident in the bath) so after bath I asked her again. She pointed to the toilet and said toetoe.
So, after about a minute or so, she poopoo stinteed in the toetoe.

My big girl.

If you are curious, no, she has yet to pee in the toilet.
I've heard that the peepee on the potty comes much easier than the poopoo. Not for my daughter. She knew exactly what she was doing when she was doing it.

Yes, I took a picture.
Yes, my husband thinks I'm crazy.
No, I won't completely disgust you all by posting it.

we had a yard sale.
The profit was going into my treadmill fund.
A treadmill that I have been coveting for months.
Never did I think my junk (err stuff) would add up to over $700.00.
Very exhausting but so worth it.
That's all.
