Josie is doing great, completely potty trained. She loves her sister, and is a huge helper. She really likes playing with Marie (reading to her, pretending to put her down for naps etc) but Marie is not always the most cooperative. Josie can write her name now, and she can regonize letters A, B, C, JOSIE (of course), T, M, & N. She also is a huge talker and recently has been overheard saying the following: "Can we have a piscetti pickmick?" "Bikini bread (zucchini bread)" "Under and lightening" I think that's all of her recent cute sayings. I list them here so that I don't forget.
Josie has also taken to referring to herself in the third person almost all the time, which is sort of interesting. She'll come running in and say "Mom, Josie wants some chocolate milk". Definately one of her cuter phases.
Out cold. Marie was having a real problem staying asleep on her back at night, so with her dr's permission we've started putting her down on her tummy. She's now a champion sleeper and generally goes about 5 hours a stretch at night, which is awsome!
Me, Josie, & Marie in her beloved Peanut-Shell. As you can see the sling is basically just a pouch, no buckles or straps, and she fits right in. She really seems to like it in there, expecially since it's so close to her favorite thing, being held.
