It's finally starting to cool down here. Fall has finally arrived! We've been soaking up as much of the good weather as we can lately. Windows open, AC off, trips to the park... I'll have some pictures to post in a bit. Our big news of the week is that Emma has started to use the potty! I had one on hand but didn't really expect her to go for it this soon. Every few weeks I'll show it to Emma, just so she is comfortable with it. Last weekend I let her try it out right before bathtime. I was shocked when she actually - went! Since then it's been the same story. She loves to use it! She hasn't started to tell me when she needs to go, so there is certainly still progress to make, but I'm amazed at how eager she is and how well she is doing. I guess I sort of asked for it by introducing her to "it" so soon, but wow, this whole process has been keeping me on my toes.
