prepping already for her 3 yr old party in September

a tent awning in Tower Grove Park between playgrounds. Sprinkler fountains should still be on, bring your suits.

Bring lawn chairs, Sun block, bug spray, kids swim suits and towels and yours too if you want to get in the sprinklers with the kids. hehe

I will be making Cup Cake Ice Cream Cones if I can figure out how to get them there without melting them. http://thefrugalgirls.com/2010/02/ice-cream-cone-cupcake-recipe-so-cute.html

No theme... just party time at the playground / park.

I think we are trained

Ok, I know I am going to totally jinx myself here, but I'll say it.

I think Julia is potty trained.

She will sleep roughly 9 - 10 hours a night and has not had a wet pull up since 4 weeks ago. If we are out in public, she will ask to use the bathroom. The last potty accident she had was over 3 weeks ago when we were out at and she didn't ask me to use the potty. She got a talking to, but no time out for that incident.

Today, she woke up and went #1 on the big girl potty (dora seat on the big toilet) after about 20 minutes and then an hour later went into the bathroom and closed the door (hey, the girl likes her privacy) and went #2. She even tries to wipe. I have to stand outside the door now and wait for her to do her business and then she tells me it is ok to come in and help her wipe. LOL she is so independent.

I love it, a new stage in life. She is growing up so fast and I just can't believe I won't have to buy diapers for her ever again. I have about 10 pull ups left and I think she will take weeks to use those up. I am not set on putting her in big girl undies yet for night time. I'll hand onto those for a few more weeks to ease my mind that she won't pee-pee in the bed.

My little girl is growing up so fast. I so wish we could adopt or find a surrogate to have another and complete our family.
