Big Girl

Haven't had any more potty excitement, but Sofie is moving into the next classroom in 2 weeks. They really start working on potty training once she's in the 2's room.

Over the weekend we also converted the crib into a big girl bed. The first nap and 2 nights were a little touch and go. It's different. But tonight, she went running and jumped in on her own and kept saying "night night". I changed her into her pj's and read her a story, then she proceeded to wave me off and say "go, go, go". So independent.

We interrupt your regular scheduled programming...

...to bring you this late, breaking news update....

We have had pee pee in the potty! 3 times. Yesterday morning, this morning, and this evening after dinner.

Sorry if this is TMI, but we are so excited!

Update and lots of pics

Sofie's starting to put 2 and 3 words together to make sentences... "Where's Daddy?" "Come on Daddy" "I'm coming" "No, mine, big girl" (when I tried to help her keep from dropping her snacks while we were walking the dog).

Marc's baseball team won the championship on Saturday.

And I'm running lots with my marathon training. Other than that its the same ol, same ol. Wake up, run, work/school, cook dinner, make lunches, rinse and repeat.

A few recent pics....

Sofie's new backpack (I hate my camera, it thinks about taking a picture, thinks about it some more, then decides to take it once Sofie has turned around or moved onto something else and is no longer acting cute).

New shoes

You mean I'm supposed to potty in this and not just sit on it?

Marc's baseball team won the Championship!


We're #1 (or 5)

Too bad there was only one trophy, hard to share among 15 guys.

This is my attempt at a Mickey Mouse cake. Sofia loves Mickey Mouse and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on Disney, so I thought I'd make her a Mickey cake for her birthday. I've been looking at Wilton online and at the party store, and it looks like the Mickey Mouse cake pans are out of production. And I didn't want to pay $25+ for one on ebay.

Then it hit me, a regular 9 inch cake pan and 2 smaller corning serving dishes! I found some 4th of July Funfetti cake mix on the clearance rack at Target this week and decided to give a test run before the big day. I think it turned out pretty good!
