This Week

Here’s what’s been going on this week!

Another potty training update: Elodie has only had 1 accident this week. We even bought her some big girl underwear, which I’m sure are more comfortable than those plastic things she had been wearing. We are so proud of her! We are handing over the remainder of her diapers to her babysitter, who hopefully can use them on other babies. The only problem we’ve noticed is that when she’s out in public, she’s uncomfortable using the toilet with no potty seat, so she just holds it. It’s great that she’s able to do that, but we don’t want her to have to hold it & be uncomfortable. So, we ordered her a portable, travel potty seat. We haven’t gotten it yet, so we’ll see how it works! She’s growing up too fast.

Big girl underwear!

On the same note of Elodie growing up too fast, we rearranged her room this weekend. I want to get rid of her changing table, since it takes up too much room & we haven’t used it in weeks. There were other things I was getting sick of too, and we needed to clean up so we can make room for all the fun things she’s going to get for her birthday/Christmas, so we finally moved things around. We moved her bookshelf that was standing up vertically and by her door/closet over in front of her window laying horizontally, so she can reach all her toys/books and we could use the top of it to store things/get stuff up off the floor. We pushed her crib over more and put the rocking chair in the corner by her crib. We also moved the dresser to where her bookshelf used to be, and the changing table stayed in the same place. That will be easy to disassemble when we decide to either get rid of it or put it in storage. Here are some pictures to clarify what I was talking about.

It was a much-needed change and I love it so far.

On another note, this week was homecoming week at my school. Since I teach Freshman, they don’t get too involved in spirit week so it’s up to us teachers to get them motivated! This is one of the craziest weeks because there’s so much going on: dress up days, parade/block party, pep rally, game, and dance. I didn’t go to all of these events, but we definitely did dress up & chaperone the dance.

In addition to spending the weekend recovering from the busy week, we spent our morning at the park.

Fun times at the Park

In the meantime, between work  and Chris being in school, we are planning Elodie’s 2nd Birthday Party. It’s going to be a the park again like last year on November 17–the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Come on out and join us. Invitations will be sent out soon, so let me know if you’d like one.

Have a great week!
