Hi all. This is Jeff, giving it my first shot at blogging. I decided I needed to finally jump on this bandwagon, if for nothing else than to keep you all updated, since the Children's Place has stolen my wife from me. (She started working last Thursday, and then worked six of the next seven days, accruing 41 hours of paid work! Whew! Talk about going from zero to sixty in terms of how bored and aimless we had been feeling.)
So anyway, as the title of this indicates, I've got some bathroom-related news for you all: Avery just went "poop on the potty" for the first time. We've let her believe that she's accomplished this feat before, but without my getting too graphic, let me just say that this was the first time she really got it done, and MAN did she get it done! So this first picture is a very proud Avery posing with her potty, favorite toilet-training book, and kitty-cat pez dispenser that rewards her after she goes. (She got two pieces of candy for this big success!)
In non-potty news, our past week has been a little more full, with Steph working and me trying to hold down the fort. We've been able to hang out with Garner and Erica and their kiddos a couple times, and that has been nice. They came over yesterday, and Avery had a great time with Lauren and Ella!
The only other action going on is that Avery attended her very first movie, like at a big theater! We went this afternoon and saw Surf's Up at a cheap theater, and it was actually a really cute little movie. Avery was totally entranced the whole time, eating popcorn and making comments about the little surfing penguins. It was super fun!(Though it's just another reminder of how she's getting so big, so fast.) On our drive home, Steph asked Avery if she liked the movie, and Avery responded with, "Like it? I loved it!" Our daughter is a pretty funny little girl sometimes.
