Arkansas Trip Pictures (Take 1)

I have quite a few pics to go through, and as I said before, I still have pics from BEFORE our trip that have yet to be posted. I do plan to get to those too. So, for your viewing pleasure, here are some pictures from the first couple of days of our trip.

And, some different things of interest lately. Abs is doing great with the potty. She had a little regression while on the trip, but I kind of figured that might happen. She’s back on target now, and wears panties everywhere, even to school. She’s not had any accidents in public, but I’m sure that could change. She still doesn’t poop on the potty regularly. Most of her poop occurs with night-time or nap time still (at least it’s not in my Mom’s bathtub anymore, right Mom!? Geeez!). She still wears cloth diapers or cloth trainers for both of those times. We have the treat of going to Chick-fil-a up for grabs again, so she’s excited again about pooping on the potty. We’ll see. She’s also to the point where she wants to go to the potty by herself—she pulls her pants and panties off herself and sits herself up on the potty. Such a big girl. And, she wants to go potty in most public places. Thankfully, I have my nifty seat adapter in my purse so we’re good to go anywhere. She does great!

Her language skills expand every single day! It’s amazing. She’s speaking in more complex sentences everyday. She still says some things that crack me and Stephen up. Like she’ll add “I guess” to the ends of sentences where it really doesn’t fit. It’s funny. Or, she’ll say things, like “that’s not appropriate” which just sounds funny to us. Anyway, I guess you just have to hear it to understand.

Also, she seems to have an imaginary friend…we think. She has long talked about “Tuba” and we just thought she was referring to Veggie Tales, and then it morphed into where we thought she was calling herself Tuba. But, now we are fairly certain that Tuba is a new member of the family! It’s hilarious! She gets food for Tuba and puts Tuba in the bouncy seat and swings him (or is it a her?!). Whatever, we think it’s quite funny! Good imagination…I guess (haha!).

Well, that’s all for now. I’ll add more pictures soon. Have a great Monday!

    I had an imaginary friend name “pizza.” I can still remember him…he was an actual slice of pizza, pepperoni I think. He also had oreos and string, but that’s all I remember. Bryan had one for a while too, his name was “Toby.” At least he never made us open the car door for him or anything. I think its cute to hear what they think about their “friends.”

    I am so proud of Abriella and her pottying accomplishments. That is so great!!

    I figured that Abriella would get back into the pottying mode when she wasn’t “tripping”. And her taking responsibility for it herself is great! I think she mentioned Tuba while she was here, but I thought she was referring to Veggie Tales. Is she enjoying pre-school again?
