My Three Blessings!

this and that

We love the occasional rainy day around the Fowler house. A rainy day usually means we get an unexpected fun day with daddy! Today was nothing short of that. We started our day by heading to Mickey D's (as Jared calls it) to get some breakfast. We love their smoothies and breakfast burritos. After we were finished eating Jared and Spicer played on the play place. This was Spicer's first time to do this at McDonalds. I kinda cringed at the thought of my little girl crawling around in there, but ended up letting go of my germ-a-phoebe tendencies to let her have some childhood fun! lol! I also had to break the rules in order to let her play. It says ages 3-12 can play, well SB is only 22 months. I know, I'm such a rule follower! It's sad. :) Anyway, S and J had a great time playing and to my knowledge she's just as healthy now as she was when she went in there!

On a different note, SB turned 22 months old yesterday! It's so hard to believe that she will be 2 in a couple of months. Yesterday I decided on a party theme for her 2nd birthday and I'm pretty excited about it. Now that I'm a little party planner, lol, I've got to have enough time to make and gather everything needed to pull of the perfect little party! :) I definitely want it to be special for her.

Spicer is really talking a bunch these days. She can pretty much say anything except for "I love you and thank you!" Jared and I think she can say it, she's just holding out on us! For both I love you and thank you she says something like, "doot-doot!" Really anything with two syllables. Cracks us up! SB is really putting many simple sentences together as well. The other day she said, "Watch me daddy." She had to make sure he was watching her slide! This morning she said, "Put my shoes and my socks on." I love hearing her little voice, it's so cute. Jared and I always talk about how we never want to forget these precious times. We've been talking about that a lot lately. I think it's because here lately she really seems to be growing up a lot.

Last Saturday night she starting using the potty regularly! YAY! She still has a few accidents, mainly wet, but for the most part she's well on her way to being potty trained. M & M's were the trick for us. My friend gave me this tip and it has worked wonders for Spicer. All we had to say was, "If you pee/poop on potty you get an m & m." and she walked into her bathroom, sat on the potty and pooped! Now that she's been using the potty for almost a week, we don't have to reward her everytime. She doesn't even ask for it. Awe, such a big girl!

Ok... that's all for now. Better go before I start crying!

    You have the sweetest little family. Wow I cannot believe she is already potty trained. That is amazing that you have the skill and time to work with her so much! All of mine were close to three. Olivia is 2 and will not even try. Birthday parties are exciting! Kadence will be 5 in October we are thinking Chuck E Cheese ha! And Olivia's second word was thank you. She says dink doo. But we know what she means. She now shes your welcome too! It is so sweet and special to hear them speak :) Talk to you soon!
