This is the first and last time I will let Livvy eat Spaghetti on her own. She enjoyed every bit of it.
While we were at Joannes the other day, Bailey started posing in front of the fake flowers and asked me to take pictures. I thought it was sort of cute.

Bailey the Ballerina

Bailey started Ballet a couple of weeks ago. She absolutely loves it. I think this is the only pose that she's learned so far.
At the end of class, the teacher has all of the parents come in to see what they have learned that day. All of the other kids followed what the teacher was doing, while Bailey was in the back by the mirror shaking her little bootie and looking at herself.

Light Rail

A couple of weeks ago, we decided to try out the light rail for the first time. We just went to Phoenix, got a bite to eat, and came back. The girls loved it.
I think Livvy was a little overly excited.

I Hate Potty Training!

I must admit that potty training is my least favorite thing to do as a mom. I feel like I clean up messes all day. I seriously hate it and feel like it will never end. Bailey has made a lot of progress, but still will not poop in the potty. The other day, I was cleaning up the bathroom while she was playing. I went in to check on her and she had wiped her poop all over the carpet and walls. At that point, I just wanted to cry. I try to be patient and positive, but it gets a little frustrating. This isn't the first time she's done something like this. Fun times!

Although there are lots of unpleasant experiences with this, some are kind of funny too. The other day, she finally went poop on the potty, and was pretty excited about it. She said in a very excited voice, "Mom, look! It's a mommy poop, and a daddy one. Oh, and there's a baby one! And there's Maddie and Carlie '' (Marcus's sisters). I thought it was pretty funny. She has quite the imagination.
