Happy Birthday Hailey!

Ok, so I'm only two weeks late on posting Hailey's birthday pictures, but better late than never, right? We went to the zoo for her birthday, then had cake and ice cream at our house. Very low-key, but a lot of fun. I can't believe she's two!

The Wonderful World of Potty Training

So we bought Hailey a little potty about six months ago just to see what she would do. She actually liked to sit on it, but didn't understand the "going" part. After a month or so, she went a couple times (I think on accident), which was great, but we still didn't push her. Well last week she told me she wanted to go potty, so she sat on the potty and went! Then she wipes and washes her hands. She did this two days in a row and I was so proud! Then yesterday I put her on the potty and she went #2! I was so ecstatic! She looked embarassed like she had done something wrong, but I clapped for her and told her what a good job she did and what a big girl she was. Then we went to the store and bought her a doll. She was so excited to have it. Believe it or not, this was her first doll. We've just never bought one for her before. She's kind of a little tomboy. Anyway, our goal is to have her potty trained before the new baby comes, so hopefully we can do it, but if not, it's not the end of the world. I'm not going to push her, because all the times she has gone it's been because she wanted to. Anyway, our little girl sure is growing up fast!
