My Little Valentines

Little Miss Callie Catherine peed in the potty today for the very first time! She has been showing signs for a few weeks now that she is "ready" to be potty trained, so late this week I went to Walmart and got a pink potty chair. For the first day or so, she acted scared of it - so I decided I would just let her go at her own pace and see how she handled it. Yesterday she sat on it for the first time...decided she liked it and didn't want to get up! Silly girl - but I thought she still didn't understand and it would be awhile before we got anywhere. Today Gabe had her most of the day because I had to go to Vincennes, Washington, and Loogootee - but I got home in time to give her a bath tonight. Before she got into the bath she wanted to sit on her potty. I ran to the laundry room very quickly, and by the time I came back into the bathroom - she had peed! She was so proud of herself and stood by the potty and clapped. Oh, this sassy girl just amazes me every single day. She is still a complete Daddy's girl and will not let anyone else put her to bed at night. She is really talking - more and more everyday.

 Her favorite phrases are: 
*"I peed and pooped." (She says this constantly, even when we are in public, which is so embarrassing!!)
*"Tank you." (Thank you)
*" I want nack." (I want a snack.)

And her favorite names to say are: 
Mama, Dad-dee, Bubba, Nae-Nae, Elisha, Isaiah, Mallory, AunaRay, Papa, Nana, Alicia, and Nate

She has learned to climb up on the kitchen stools to reach the island countertop...we are in trouble now!
We have been having lots of family nights at our house - my family will come over for tacos or pizza and we will just hang out and play games, talk, and laugh. These are my favorite kinds of nights!

We celebrated Valentine's Day with small gifts and lots of hugs and kisses:)

 Max came home from school with lots and lots of treats and VDay cards - I think he was on a sugar high from his party! His favorite thing to do right now is look thru all his baseball, basketball, and football cards - I remember my brothers collecting those cards and now Max is really into it. He has so many sports statistics in that head of his...his memory is insane!!

 Happy February, everyone!
