Field Trip to the Zoo

Our daytrip to the Cincinnati Zoo. We were going to go to the Ft Wayne zoo, but it was supposed to rain, so Dad decided to head to Cincinnati instead. It was a beautiful, hot, sunny day!!!  Good call, Dad!!

 Relaxing on the train ride.

Baby Lewis

We love our new baby cousin! He is so adorable, cute, and also disgusting. Disgusting might seem like a strange word for a baby, but it isn't so strange for a baby who PEES ON YOU! You read that right. He peed on me. Mom said I was a little too close to the diaper changing process and she was right (although he might have gotten me wet if I were across the room!)!! I know now to listen to my dear old Mom. That must have happened to her before.

Other than the pee incident, he isn't disgusting. Actually, I wanted to hold him over and over but Mom kept taking him away. She said she was worried I'd drop him, but I think she just wanted him all to herself. I saw how she kept rubbing and kissing his cheeks.

Little Lewis - we love you already!

Leap Year - WOW!

Did you know that today is leap day? I did some "leaps" in the park to celebrate. We got an extra day this year and my oh my what a day it was! Can you even believe it is almost 70 degrees in February?! We went to a new park today just to check things out. It turns out, it's a great park! Here are some pictures of me and my little sister at that park. ((hugs)) E1

Starry Night

Mom had a great idea - we would color a painting just like Vincent Van Gogh. I recognized his name from Little Einsteins (E2's favorite show - she calls it "rocket"). Here we are with the finished works of art. Don't tell Mom, but I think mine looks the most like the original - don't you?

Oops Poops

All my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh I believe in yesterday

Oh, I feel just like the Beatles when I think about yesterday (actually now it was the day before yesterday). I had an accident. Mommy warned me about going "big potty" in my panties, but I didn't listen. I snuck off behind the kitchen table and hid behind the curtain and did my business.

Mommy came into the room and with a SNIFF, SNIFF she smelled what I had done. She took my hand and led me to the bathroom. I wondered if I was going for a "counseling session" or to sit on the potty, so I started declaring that I preferred the latter choice. I yelled, "potty, potty, peese, potty".

Mommy was explaining that I needed to tell her if I had to go potty and that there are only two acceptable places to put poop - the toilet or a diaper.

Then she pulled my panties down and the insides of my legs were smeared with stinky, smooshy poop. And as I took my foot out of the panties, I got it all over my heal and then proceeded to stand down on that foot. Mommy completely freaked out at this point.

If you don't know my Mommy very well, she has a pretty bad phobia with germs. She thinks bleach smells good, if that tells you anything.

She was so worried about my tracking poop all over the bathroom that she had me sit down so she could clean my foot. Did you catch that? Sit down. She hadn't wiped my rear end yet.

At this point, I felt so badly for Mommy and kind of terrible that I had made such a mess in my panties, kind of. I still don't want to go big potty on the toilet.

Mommy quickly wiped me down as best as she could and then scrubbed me up in the shower. I'm not sure what she did to that bathroom but it smelled of pinesol, clorox, lysol, and dial soap.

It is all clean now, but man, what an ordeal!  I guess someone learned a lesson after all that. Mommy will think twice before putting ME in panties again. wink, wink.

New Beds

I am getting to be such a big girl now. One sign of this is that I can use the big potty now (and today I even got to wear big girl panties)! I was not really ready for this big of a change because it means that my Mom is constantly asking me if I have to go to the bathroom, but Mom has promised swimming lessons if I can keep these panties dry all the time. I'd do just about anything to have swimming lessons.

One other great surprise for me being such a big girl - new beds. These are not your regular twin beds. Nope, Mom and Dad got us a fancy bunk bed. Let's just say it is awesome!! The only downside is that I am so excited about the bed being so awesome that it takes a long tme to fall asleep. I hope the excitement wears off - never!

((hugs)) E2
