Okay first off, I'd like to sadly accept the award for Bad Mom of the Day for the state of Arizona. This morning my sweet little baby Elli fell off my bed. Yep, it finally happened. And mom, I can hear you in my head saying "I told you so, you should've been more careful." But I was careful!! I placed the impenetrable Wall o' Pillows around her! Come on we know that 7 month olds can't scale a wall of pillows stacked two high all around her, don't we? Well, apparently that doesn't apply to my 7 month old, she just burrows underneath them or bulldozes her way through them. Which this morning resulted in a lovely THUMP and then crying while I was trying to have my morning constitutional. When I got out to her, her little face was red either from the crying or because that's where she landed, I couldn't tell. As Carlos said, it's a good thing she doesn't have very much cartilage in her nose right now. Ouch!! Sorry honey, mommy will no longer leave you on the bed unsupervised because you've proven your craftiness as getting through walls of fluff and your trusty little stuffed bunny isn't even enough to distract/talk you down from jumping anymore.
Second, I mention this with some trepidation because I fear that this post will end up jinxing me and I'll have a day filled with pee pee accidents but I'm pretty confident and proudly announce that Lexi is for the most part POTTY TRAINED!! That's right folks, she's in her big girl panties! For the past week or so she has been using the potty independently and as I type this I can hear her singing "Lexi pee pee toilet, Lexi pee pee toilet" to the tune of "Happy Birthday." Now, I say mostly trained because we have yet to conquer the act of the bowel movement but I'm sure that will come soon. At least I hope because it is no fun cleaning poo out of big girl panties. She gets a sticker and one jellybean each times she uses the potty successfully and I'm running out of butterfly stickers and purple jellybeans because that is all this girl wants! Now, all we have to get is the boy to cooperate and my life will be peaches considering I'll be going from having three in diapers to one. And it will be awesome. And I'll have to brag about it. And I'm sure everyone is tired of me blogging about poo and pee because I still think it's sad that someone found my blog by googling "diaper pull-up." Anyway, that is all :)
