almost 2

You know, as much as I gripe about staying up late or getting up in the middle of the night or breaking my rules or just being frustrated till no end, I have to say this is the most fun time with Emilia. It's the little things that make me laugh so hard....like, yesterday, she found a dog turd in the yard and was sooooo excited that she found it. She would not leave that turd, "Mommy, poop.....Mommy, poop." We were trying to clean up the porch a little and she had a Lysol wipe and she was fanning the turd, like it was steaming or something....it was almost petrified. She was so excited though, it was like buried treasure or something. She got so mad at me when I used her wipe to pick it up and throw it in the bushes....you would have thought that I just beheaded her favorite baby doll or something. Then, later that night she gave herself a bath for the first time...I wish that I had the video camera handy because she was adamant about washing her "butt." Speaking of the word "butt" I don't like her using it and I want to know where she learned this word....I am going to have to do some snooping! Anyway, back on topic, she got on one knee in the bath tub (proposal style) and reached around and wiped her "butt" for at least 5 minutes, then she thought that it was hilarious to put bubbles in her butt crack. Ohhhh, it was toooo funny! Too damn funny! And she is starting to make her little sentences now...she has been doing the two word sentences for a while now, but now we are making our way up to three words. She can put her shoes on by herself (mostly) now. She still may need a little help, but for the most part, she's got it down. She is showing big signs of being ready to potty train. They are working with her at daycare and we are also transitioning to the big girl cup, which she is using pretty well. All these changes.....my baby is growing up...she can wipe her butt, spot some poop, tell me when she pee-pee's, and almost dress herself.
