she did it

She did it!!! She pooped in her potty. Tonight Ella came running out yelling I pooped in my potty. I immediately drop what I am doing, run to the bathroom to investigate if and how big this said poop is. It definitely qualified as a poop, so I start jumping up and down cheering, hugging, giving hi fives, and making the biggest deal possible. She was thrilled!!!
About an hour later, I see her do the poop dance that she has done all day. I drop what I am doing and run her to the potty. But something about being told what to do doesn't really fly with this red head. So I leave her screaming protest in frustration. 30 seconds later she yells, "I pooped in potty again!" I run to investigate. Sure enough, and bigger than the last.
I am a little surprised that this much poop can come out of such a small little girl.
She then proceeds to tell me her poop looks like ice cream. I take one more look, sure enough, it has a strange resemblence to soft serve ice cream.
I guess thats what 9 days on miralax will do.
Oh happy day!

Hey Amy, it's Jen Gladwell (Megan's friend, the one who's expecting twins :) I found your blog through meg, so cute by the way. I was just wondering if you are still in the business of fruit knit hats? I wouldn't need them until next winter since my lovies won't be here until April,so I would need size 6-12 mos. however you do it. email me jentygladwell@gmail.com if you are interested. I also have cute website of another type of knit hat that I was wondering if you could copy? sorry for the long comment :)
