fun at the fair

Lastnight we went to the fair. Piper loved it. She loved all the animals. We were at the rabbits & Piper says "Hi rabbit, I'm Piper".
We first put her on this ride. She did not ride this ride. They took way too long so she kept climbing out of her seat belt.....I think she would have liked it though. We the went to the ladybugs. Piper laughed on it. It didn't last very long. I tried to get it on video but didn't so now I don't even have a picture of her on the ladybug. :(

Piper & Mommy going in the fun house. Piper liked this too.

at the top of the fun house (can you believe they made me pay tickets to go in the fun house with her?? 6 tickets & it took us 30 seconds to get through.)

This big thing spun around as you walk through. Piper couldn't do it.
So Piper & mommy ran through it.
She wanted to drive the tractor.
Daddy & Piper :)

Update on PT

Today has been the best day with the potty training. Except this afternoon seemed like she wasn't interested. She didn't have any messes this morning. At nap time I put her in a pull up, she peed in it. I took it off, put panties back on & put her back in bed. When I got her up she was still dry. She peed in her panties before church & would not go potty at church & wouldn't let them change her in the nursery. I know it doesn't sound very good but I think it is.

Yesterday with the turtles

I caught & saved two turtles for the little ones b/c I knew they would like it....They did. Hudson asked where one of thems head was :)
Sweet Jasper enjoying being outside!

Looking at the turtle. Cooper kept trying to get in there with them. Dean wanted the balls out of there. Piper kept saying "hi turtle".

PT today

Didn't really push the whole peeing in the potty thing with Piper yesterday since my mom, nephew, & brother were here. She seemed to pre-occupied. Today after church she went to bed of course, then when she woke up we put her back in panties. She peed in them twice & pooped once. But, she also peed in the potty & pooped in it.

Dive-In movie

Our life group got together lastnight at the Cavallo's. Some people swam while we set up a movie on a big screen to watch outside. The night was beautiful, the fellowship was great. We had a lot missing from our class but it was still fun! We watched, "Peaceful Warrior".

Potty Training: Day2

Today was about the same as yesterday, except she pooped in the potty. It was just a litle bit but I am excited! Had lots of accidents today. Now she says she doesn't want to wear pull ups. She wants to wear her "big girl panties".

My girl

Here are a few links of Piper in the nursery. From the nursery blog.

Rainy day Oh & Piper peeing in the potty!

I absolutley enjoyed this day with Piper. It was raining & storming this morning. We turned on some cartoons & cuddle together. It was great!
We had all kinds of fun. Mostly just real lazy though. We did our alphabet. Watched cartoons & wore big girl panties all day! :) Piper found the markers & colored on my couch & on Toodee!!! Bad girl!

Well, since it was just me & Piper today I thought I would try the panties only thing again. She peed in her panties 3 times then I put a pull up on at nap time & peed in it too. This evening she looked like she was about to poop. I asked her if she needed to go potty & she said yes. So I put her on the potty & she did it! Beau & I were so excited! We were screaming & yelling! She looked at us like we were crazy! I couldn't believe my ears at first when I heard the urine fall into the potty! WAY TO GO PIPER! I think this is the start of potty training...Wish me luck!!!
