Potty trained????

Well the week before we went camping the teachers at preschool decided it was time to potty traing Taylor. Really? Before we go camping? Ugh. It was rough. The first day she didn't go in the potty at all. Having several accidents! The second day, more of the same. The third day, I think she went pee pee once. Then it was time to go camping. I tried. I really tried but after the first day I couldn't deal with it anymore. Not after she pooped and didn't tell me and then when I went to have her go potty, poop falls out on the bathroom floor. =( Ugh. So she was in pull ups the rest of the weekend. Fastforward and it's the second week. She's back to school. The first day, one accident. The second day one accident. Third day one accident and then the fourth day NO accidents and no accidents at home either! Can I say she is fully potty trained? No. Are we almost there. YES!! I can see light at the end of the tunnel!!!

1st Haircut

Yes. It has taken me 2 1/2 years to get the girls first haircut. What can I say. Taylor's hair was just nice and flowing and thick and I wanted Emily's hair to grow. But it got to a point where Emily needed something done to her hair because it was so many different lengths in the back. So I bit the bullet. Taylor did NOT want to get her hair cut. She literally tried to JUMP from the chair but we bribed her with a lollipop and Kung Fu Panda and she sat and did really well. Emily was THRILLED to get her hair cut. No crying no whining and she wants to go back again. Of the two, there is a HUGE difference in the before and after of Emily. Taylor really only needed the dead ends cut off and you can tell she got her hair cut but not as much as Emily. Here are some pictures:

All I have to say of Emily is where did my baby go? She looks like a little girl now and not my baby. Gosh they are growing up so fast!
