Meredith

I'm going to announce it officially, and hope it doesn't come back to haunt me! Meredith is FINALLY potty-trained!!!! Turns out, all I had to do was to sit down with her and have a serious conversation about how she's a big girl now and she will wear underpants and she will use the potty and will not potty in her pants anymore. So, she's done with pull-ups (except for bedtime). It's been almost 2 weeks now and she's only had one pee-pee half accident (caught herself going while distracted by playing). I don't/haven't reminded her to go; she just does everything by herself... most of the time she'll tell me she's going or ask for help getting undressed/dressed, but she does everything else on her own. :)

Meredith also is learning her letters with Michael... she asks him all the time what a letter is or how to write one. She knows almost all of the letters and what all of the letters "say." Her favorite letter is "D." I don't know why she likes this one, but she really does!

She is having a Princess Party for her birthday - just ask her! So, if you're interested, just let me know you're coming... maybe August 20? Everything will be pink, and sparkly. Just so you know. If you want to know what to get her, just go with those things ^^^; you can't go wrong. Ooh, especially if you have a book about princesses that are pink and sparkly, or maybe even ballerinas, or fairies, or pink princess ballerina fairies.

Meredith loves Jonathan. I don't think that needs much explaining, haha. She is a great big sister, unless she's smothering him trying to give him kisses. Her best way of helping is to sing "The Jonathan Song" to calm him down... this song mostly consists of saying "Jonathan, Jonathan, Jonathan;" repeat until the poor guy gives up and stops crying. Actually, it really does work and makes him smile most of the time!

That's it for now. I'll try to get some pics up on Picasa in the next few days. We've been crazy busy around here lately and I've hardly had any time online in the past few days. :)

Our first attempt at potty training Molly got off to a good start, then failed spectacularly. She's had diarrhea on and off for about a month, so that hasn't helped matters.
