Miss Independent.....

My sweet, determined 2 yr. old Anna has been growing up before my eyes this past week. In one week she has decided she wants to be potty trained and she has learned how to climb out of the crib. I was not ready for either of these cause you know our world just changed with Mary arriving 23 days ago. I know that P.T. and using a big girl bed require lots of energy and discipline. However, she's the type of kid that if she sleeps in a big girl bed once it will be the end of the crib so that is what is happening tonight. She's in Ellie's bed because Ellie is currently in trouble for getting out of her bed way to many times tonight so it worked out well. Ellie is sleeping in the guest bed in Mary's room. I'm guessing it will have to be this way for awhile until we have the time to look for Anna a bed. She is such a climber and I'm pretty sure with her stubborn determination she will be in some sport to get all of her energy out!
When she climbed out she told me "it's tall and I brave"! I am really hoping the P.T. will be easy cause with Ellie it was quite the long process. I'm not going to really stress to much about it and give it a week or so to make sure she is really ready to try it.
We went to visit my brother's family over the weekend in OKC and it was lots of fun! The girls got to play with their cousins which was a blast for them. It was really fun for my mom to see all 5 granddaughters together. Mary did great in the car, but the 3.5 hour trip was for sure an extra 1.5-2 hours longer with the stops for the 3 girls! It was a good change and I am so glad we got to all go! I hope you are all having a great weekend!

Wow, Kayil is a little Miss Independent too!! One of her favorite phrases is "I do it myself." We recently moved her to a big girl bed (she was climbing too!). We had to stay tough on her, especially those first few days, giving her consequences if she got out of bed, and now she is doing great!! Hope it goes well for you! You'll have to share about the PT...we haven't tackled that one yet!

I bet Anna will do great with PT! She seems so easy going about things that you may as well let her try she might really surprise you.

I hope the bed goes well too. Alaire did fine. She doesn't stay in bed as well as Ellis did but I think that will come with age if we just keep up with her.... and we both know what a task that will be!

Wow, they are growing up so fast! About the new bed.. I was looking on the Ikea website for some new furniture in our guest room and I came across some cute toddler beds. They were so cheap and cute.. You might want to look there..
