Potty Training

Oh, I forgot to mention in the last post a very big thing for Libby... she's in the midst of potty training! With life so hectic right now, I did not choose the timing, but she was picking up on it and basically started training herself. So I decided to give her a try. It's been going great! I haven't put her in "big girl panties" all day yet, but she definitely knows how to use her potty. It's a little sad to see her trying to grow up so fast. :( I guess I'm ready for another baby.
I can't believe how easy potty training has been so far!

She also slept in her toddler bed for the first time last night. Since we're at my parents house and don't have a crib set up yet, I decided to put her toddler bed in the office as it was already assembled, and it's got to be lots more comfortable than a pack n play anyways. Well, she's climbed out of the pack n play several times now so it didn't really matter. She slept great in her toddler bed last night, didn't get out once and was just sitting up in it this morning without climbing out. I figured as much as she's slept in a full size bed in their guest room before and not had a problem. She loves her toddler bed that she helped pick out at the consignment and led Matt right in there when he got home to show him her "new bed" before being tucked in for the night.

That's all for now!

Quick update

Quick update... Closing on our house tomorrow, moved into my Mom and Dad's, life is chaos, and yet amidst all this I'm still posting pictures. We're having a boy and his name will be Tyler, we'll call him Ty. I'm now 20 weeks and half way done!

Libby got her first black eye. Guess that's what happens when you start running, climbing and going a little crazy. :) She fell off a couch while playing around and hit her cheekbone on an ottoman. So sad! Here are some pics of her three day old shiner...
Showing where her boo-boo is.
This is kind of a tough-girl pose. She's started posing for pictures, so funny!

We went to the zoo with Ash and Annie. Libby collected some eggs.

We went to the park to catch some of the last color change and get some fall pics of Libby and Annie. Colors were pretty much gone, but there were some fun leaves to take pics in. The pics came out great! I love my camera!
She loves her Aunt Boo!

Pics aren't in the best order. Here's another of her collecting eggs.
Fun place to play at the zoo! She's a vet! She loved it.

More park pics. Don't know how to change the order of these pics on a Mac.

I love her precious face!
I sat her in a tree and she immediately put her hands like this and struck a pose.
So sweet.

I love this one!

This one is great too!

Again with the hand pose.
She learned Ready...Set...Go. This is her ready to run stance. She now will back up to a wall and say "Set...Set..." and then take off running. I love it!
Love this face! And these beautiful blue eyes!

Goofing off for the camera.
She liked kicking the leaves around and playing in them. She also loved helping us with Annie, or trying to help. She loves her cousins soooo much, she smothers then and hollers when she sees them! She's super affectionate and I think she's a little aggressive in showing it, but that's probably my fault for kissing her face a thousand times a day. Seems pretty normal for her.
She actually says and repeats phrases now instead of just one word at a time. She says os many words and it's fun to hear her thoughts a little more and her little mistakes. She pronounces movie, moonie. She says her name as Bibby (not so good with her L's). But she does know her whole name is Libby Carr and says Carr very well. So cute! I love this stage so much! It's a lot to keep up with, but she's learning new stuff every day! She's super active, but is pretty obedient and isn't hard to take places. Definitely needs discipline, but she responds well to it. Her biggest struggle now is bad attitudes and being told "No".

That's all for now. Not sure when I'll be able to blog again. Maybe from our new house if we get one soon.
