Wee-wee-wee-we go potty

Ok so it happened TODAY. Lily decided to jumpstart her potty training. This morning she poo-ed in the potty all by herself without any direction by me ( ok maybe a little push that poop out, chugga chugga poooo-pooo) Than, at daycare she poo-ed in the potty again all by herself.... all i have to say is HOTDOG, I have high hopes for my baby being out of diapers by her 2nd birthday ...... Keep up the good work baby girl. Mama is soooo PROUD OF YOU!!!!!
  I seriously do not know who was more excited about Lily poo'ing in the potty Lily or I. Oh and did i mention she poo'ed in the BIG potty.

And she even remembered to wash her hands, and thats a more successful potty than most adults lol.

Stop Pweese....

  It trully breaks my heart when I see anyone being cruel to another person, especially my Liliana.

  The other day Lily decided she wanted to go to the "LIBERRY" so we cleaned up got dressed and headed out the door. Once we got there, Lily picked out two books which we sat down and read twice. When we were through she went over to the small corner with all of the blocks,puzzles,and toys to play. There she encountered her first bully,a older toddler whose parents were no where to be seen. The boy decided it was alright to press his forhead to hers and make horrible faces and growling noises at her. At first Lily only backed away. Than she started throwing desperate looks, and ran into my arms.
  I sat down with her and explained to her that although we cannot control how other people behave, we can control how we react. I told her that it is always important to stand up for ourselves and for others that are not being treated properly. "Ask them to please stop" I said to her and tell them "you do not like it".

  "stop pweese" she repeated back and off she ran to go finish playing.

 Well wouldn't you know it, that little boy shot right back over to where lily was playing,almost immediately after she settled in, and started getting into her face again, and what do you think lily did?
She didn't turn to look at me, she turned and looked straight at the bully stuck her hand out in front of her and said "stop pweese, me no liking liking it" the little boy stepped back shot me a look and ran to his mother.
That was the moment that Lily realized that not only did she have the power to speak for herself, but the words NO LIKING IT made people listen.  She took to those words like a fish takes to water.  Strawberries on her lunch plate without the greens cut off?  NO LIKING IT.  Took her to the store instead of the park?  NO LIKING IT.  Made her hold my hand in a parking lot?  NO LIKING IT.
  Oh Lily you are so smart, and make me beam with pride every single day.

Love, Mama

  "stop pweese, no liking it" she parroted back

dankie..hvala..tak..dank je wel..dankon..merci.. mahalo..toda..grazie..dziękuję..dakujem..gracias..diolch.. and Thank you!!!!!!!

I don't know what I ever did to deserve this life that I live, but I am forever humbled by it

Lets start a tradition...

   Last year Jason, Liliana and I took our first family weekend trip to Pittsburgh. We visited the Childrens Museum, Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium, the Aviary, and lastly we took a stroll down china town or wherever it was, I dont really remember what it was called all i know is that it was awesome!!!!!

Well this year we stopped into Pittsburgh for only one night but we managed to fit in the Childrens Museum and Zoo . We probaly could have fit in a few more places but we discovered IKEA and anyone who knows what I am talking about knows what happened with all of our time. Holy Smokes that store is amazing. So amazing that we are pretty much planning a big trip to IKEA to buy pretty much all new furniture. See look at IKEA go, taking over not only my vacation but now taking over my vacation blog hehehe I love that store. I am going to slowly back away from the IKEA topic  right now but i swear it is like crack it seriously is the HAPPIEST place on earth... well to anyone who isn't a toddler ( sorry lily ).

                                Ok back to our little trip!

   I really don't have all that much to say about it other than, minus IKEA lily was great. She loved sleeping in the hotel ( ok well laying in the bed, that is a whole diff story in it's self.... ugh stupid drunks and thier firealarms), she thought the childrens museum was the greatest place on earth, and loved the zoo as usual, but so could have done without the aquarium. She wasn't even impressed with the Polar Bears and Sharks swimming next to and above her in the walk thru tunnel.. I mean come on Lily a Polar Bear was swimming all around you and you wanted to go run around in the open auditorium. Oh yeah she is 22 months old ... forgot.. but the polar bears were awesome, don't worry though Jason was able to stay in the tunnel and get some pretty sweet pictures for the baby book.

                     Needless to say our weekend was filled with much laughter, smiles, and fun!!!!!!

Oh and a HIGH SPEED POLICE CHASE .... thats right people those cop cars were going 100 mph going the wrong way on the cramped freeway chasing a shoplifter from drum roll please... you guessed it...wal-mart lol It really was scary though the cops were driving like crazy people thank goodness Jason was driving lol

More pictures from our awesome get-a-way to come, for now just look at Lily last year at the zoo compared to this year. CRAZY right?

Oh yeah and this right here ^^^ yeah that is our new yearly tradition sorry lily you will stand in front of this pole every year until you are 18 thats right :) and than even than you know we are going to try and make you take a picture here
