Last night Chris had charge of the girls while I was out and about. The girls had played outside and they were a bit muddy so daddy thought he would be kind and do the bath routine so I didn't have to fuss with it in the morning. They had their fun and then they were done. Chris put Grace's diaper on her and she ran off to play...for about 30 seconds. Then she turned around and came back to bathroom, sat on the potty (with her diaper on) and started to grunt...and poop! Daddy changed her diaper again, and when mommy heard the story, she just laughed.
This IS the first time she has even thought about "using" the potty for its intended use though, so it plants kernels of hope in my mind that maybe, just maybe, I can potty train her at an earlier age than I did Libby. Less time with two kids to diaper is always a good thing for a mom! :)

Here is a picture of me the way I look right now and a picture of me the way I looked when I was pregnant with Grace. First of all, I can't believe how much I have changed in the past couple of years. The last time I got my hair cut was the week I found out I was pregnant with Grace. Look how long it is now compared to then. Wow! I started growing it because I wanted to donate it to Locks of Love, but now, I don't really want to cut it again. I think I'll just keep hold of my hair until I'm sick of it (or until John starts tugging on it and driving me crazy) and THEN I'll donate it. :)
The other difference in the pictures is pretty obvious. I have a little girl that is so very independent and so very clingy at the same time. She wanted her way, right away and was not about to let daddy take the picture and THEN settle for mommy. Wow, does she have a whole new world coming to her this fall. I know God will give me the strength to deal with it, but I am NOT looking forward to the fits she is going to throw (not the ingenuity of her mind) while I'm feeding John. I have a feeling I have a whole new world coming too.
Last, but not least, I'm curious to know if you can figure out how far along I am in the picture that I'm pregnant for Grace. Let's see who can guess this one right. :)
