Temporary setback with the undies

So, Elly was super jazzed about undies and potties for about 4 days, and then she decided that she was having WAY too much fun playing to actually stop for 5 seconds to sit on the pot. So.... I'd say undies are only about 20% of the day right now, with lots of encouragement and reminders about how FUN the potty is!

We are in TX right now visiting Elly's cousins! Her older cousin Alivia (who is 4) is trying really hard to help me show Elly how fun it is to pee pee on the potty. She asks Elly to come with her to the bathroom every time, and talks it up like crazy. I'm hoping she'll convince Elly how great it is by the time our trip is over! We're here for 2 weeks, so fingers crossed.

On the plus side, I bought the same potty for Elly that she has at home, and her 2 1/2 year old cousin Blake is SUPER interested in sitting on it! So, if nothing else, we may leave here with a potty-trained Blake :)

By the way, Elly LOVES playing with her cousins! It took me over 2 hours to get Elly to bed the first two nights we were here... she's so worried that the fun will end if she goes to bed! That's getting better, though....

Super excited to see the airplanes

Layover in Houston... watching Super Why!

Playing peek-a-boo with baby Carissa

Kiss kiss for baby!

So interested in that little one!

21 months

On Saturday, Elly turned 21 months and got croup for the first time, all in the same day! We had a fun play group in the morning, extended our date with E to play in Elly's new crabby pool, and had one of mommy's friends over for dinner that evening.

All fun and wonderful, until Elly woke up around 11pm with a terrible barking cough, tears, and trouble breathing. We called the medical advice line who sent us to the ER. She got to wear a teeny little hospital gown and get checked out. Just a mild case of croup. She got some steroids and we went home to snuggle in bed the rest of the night! She's already feeling mostly better... although she's still trying to take advantage of the "snuggle in bed with mommy" opportunities!

Oh, and she's also wearing undies about 70% of the day, now!

Elly is 20 months!

Today my students are graduating, and the school is closing FOREVER tomorrow (we're just moving into a new building, but I had a LOT of packing to do), and so I didn't yet take Elly's monthly pictures.

BUT. She did receive a LATE birthday present from a friend today, a greyhound toy that looks just like Ramona, which she immediately L.O.V.E.D. and kissed all over. Love this girl :)
