Potty, potty, potty, potty

We reached a milestone today! Reese and I had some friends come visit for the day.
Crystal (a friend from college) and her children Gracie (caroline, macy or anything else you'd like to call her) and Cooper came to visit. We met them for lunch and then they came over to play.
Reese and Gracie are about 3 weeks apart with Gracie being older. So Gracie brought her
"big girl potty" with her since she is trying to use the potty. Well, Reese was very excited
about this potty and wanted to sit on it as soon as she saw it. She kept saying, "potty, potty, potty"
over and over and over again! Finally, when we got home I took her pants off and let her sit on it
just to see if anything would happen. She was just sitting there "talking" to me about the potty.
I asked her if she was tinkling and she nodded her head. Then she said, "all done"! I never heard anything
so I assumed nothing had happend. We got off the potty and what do you know....
she pooped and pee peed in the potty!
I was SO amazed! I took pictures but won't post them. I'll just show you the potty and
her sitting on it later in the day screaming! I guess it's off to buy a potty tomorrow and
we will see where this leads us!

The beach!

Our trip to Litchfield was a wonderful time. We loved spending time with all the
Hudgens at the beach! Everyone was so excited to see Happy and Nana.
We are very thankful they were able to be there and what a sweet time it was
with all the family. It's like Christmas everytime Nana and Happy come to visit.
I really love spending all day on the beach doing nothing! It's so much fun when
the little ones can actually play on the beach rather than just sitting there.
But there is a price to pay for that change, no more sitting on the beach
reading a book! It's a price that I am more than willing to pay! I loved playing with
her on the beach and watching her explore the water and sand.
Here are a few pictures from the beach. Happy and Reese reading together!
