She did it!

BIG news today - Lauren left the house with big girl panties on!!! And she stayed dry ALL DAY LONG! She's been doing great the last couple weeks at home (with the exception of the Valentine's week stomach flu) in her panties. The past few days she has even been going into the bathroom by herself and just calling me when she needs to be wiped. Today we had spur of the moment lunch plans with friends and she refused to put on a diaper. I explained that restaurants didn't have "little girl potty chairs" so if she needed to go she would have to use a big one. She was fine with that. After lunch we headed to Costco, and then we did more shopping and out to dinner with Noni and Papa. AND SHE STAYED DRY! I am so very proud of her, she's picked this up so fast, and is doing a great job. Way to go, Lauren!

We met up with some friends at the park yesterday and enjoyed the nice weather. Just in time, too, since it started raining last night and is supposed to continue for a few days. It was Owen's first time on a swing, and I don't think I've ever heard him laugh quite so loud! With how cold it has been this winter we haven't been getting to the park very much, and when we did he was usually tucked in the stroller with blankets while Lauren ran around. So he was a big boy swinging all by himself, finally!
