She's done good, man. And I'm no idiot---accidents will happen here and there, but it's all good.
And a pantie'd butt is so darn cute, I must say. She's just so...old now. Sigh.
-I also just have to say that my sweet Lucy? Is a doll face. She is such an angel. I can't even handle it. I feel like having a baby the second time around just makes you that much more aware of all the little things because you know how fast it goes with your first. Maybe? Either way, I have been enjoying her to the max. And I let way more things slide than I did with Em. Schedule? What schedule? Yea. Whatever. I'm not stressing about it. We'll get there. And so what if she still sleeps in my bed 75% of the night. SUE ME. I kind of love it.
-My girls together? I feel like my heart could explode sometimes. So many moments with the two of them are just so good. Emeline is just so aware of her. Every squeak and cry and chatter it's, "oh bess you, Lucy! Lucy sneezed!", or "Ohh Lucy's happy! She tawk to me!", etc. She cuddles her and likes to be near her. I often overhear her teaching Lucy things. "Lucy, 'dats a hippo....'dats a ladybug! See Lucy, nine boats!" She is just such a good big sister.
-I guess the mamarazzi in me is starting to rub off on Emeline. If I get my camera out and she notices, she fa-reaks out saying, "Ennamine needs her camera, too!!!! I find Ennamine's camera!!" and then she goes rummaging through her toybox. It looks like one of those cartoons, you know, where they fling EVERYTHING out from the box to find that one, little trinket? Yea. That's exactly what happens every time.
Then she'll come back with her camera, nevermind the huge mess she just made, and it's ALWAYS backwards in her eye (like, literally, the flash goes off in her eye, ha!), and she'll say, "Lucy-girl...SMILE!!!! Say CHEESE!". She snaps away. She is obsessed with all things photography.
I came home from a family photo session last night that I shot, and she wanted to sit on my lap and look through all the photos. "Mom took 'dem! Good job, mom!" Her new thing is to say "I'm so proud of you!" to everyone. You can thank potty training talk for that one. ;)

Dang. I have so much more to share. Mainly about Emeline---but I had no intent of this being an Em-update-post, I'm such a mom. Swaying everything back to my kids. Typical :)
Life lately has had some challenging moments, having nothing, absolutely nothing to do with my girls or potty training, or anything. BUT. It has also been really great. I'm so thankful for the balance.
Have a happy weekend.
