Thanks for the prayers and emails about My sil and Zoey. My sil was able to hold Zoey today for the first time! So cool. I'm sure it is soooooooo hard for her to be away from Zoey. And the good news is she was able to go up a step in the NICU, apparently they have different levels. It brings back a lot of emotions for me. C was in the NICU for his first 4 days of life and I literally was in there as much as they would let me be!
Here is a layout I did for the challenge on the Freestyle Blog. I have lots and lots and lots of extra letters! I could do a gazillion layouts. The other is one of Allie on the slip and slide and she cried and cried after the water hit her in the face. She wasn't a slip in slide fan after that.
And look how darn cute this transparency is. Do you know who designed it for Autumn Leaves? I'll give you a couple of hints. She is so cute, totally cool and amazingly talented. Basically she rocks the scrap world! First one to guess I will send a lollipop! Ha. Now run out and buy one for you, one for your mom, and your sister, and your best friend.
Okay, we have some BIG NEWS here! WE HAVE NO MORE DIAPERS IN THE HOUSE. Only big girl panties that are ALL Cinderella. Or Rella as Allie calls them. Now let me tell you a potty training secret. This is how I have potty trained both of my children. I am not saying it is the only way, the best way or whatever I am just saying it has worked for me: (and if it can help someone else, that would be great:) My dear friend Annemarie gave me some very helpful advice.....She said whatever you do, once you put them in underwear......DON'T EVER PUT THEM BACK IN A DIAPER OR PULLUP! Now my first advice is wait until they are ready.....unless you want to clean up messes until you are going to go out of your mind.........(I have friends who have been in that place!) Allie is 2 1/2. I know, some think this is too late for a girl. I waited until C was just over 2 1/2. I made a big deal about buying underwear. Told them no more diapers. I have not put either of my kids in pull ups at night and I have yet to change a wet bed......EVER. My friend told me a pull up is just like a diaper. So they know it is ok to go in them. And typically kids don't like the feeling of being wet in underwear and their clothes. I'm not saying this is the best way, it just worked for me:) Have a blessed day!
