Play time and potty update

*** WARNING: This is a heavily picture-laden post ***

We had some beautiful weather on Sunday so the Hubs and I took K to a local park (the same one where we had her second birthday party) and took some pictures of her romping about.

At the top of the BIG slide.

I think we have a future Olympic Luge contender

As the smile indicates, she loves this thing.

Running to the top again.

She even suckered Daddy...

...and Mommy into riding it with her.

But how could we say "no" to that face?!?

And now it's off to find other adventures.



...and swings were in store for this adventure seeker.

And if that wasn't enough, diving head-first into the tube seemed exciting.

Ahhh, my little gymnast!

And my favorite picture of the bunch. This is a true KBear mischievous smile!

A few of you have asked how things are going with her Potty Chart. I'm pleased to tell you that it's going very well. In fact this morning, she declared she had to go potty right when she woke up and her diaper was less wet than usual so I took that as a good sign. She's even made poopers in the potty a few times as well so I think she's getting there. She seems more likely to signal us for pee than poop but I'm just happy that she's telling us and is still excited to put stickers on her chart. At her age I wasn't sure if it would keep her interest for as long as it would take to fill out the whole chart but she talks about her Thomas Train that she will get when it's all full and claps her hands about it so I guess it's working. Speaking of the train table, I found the one I'm going to get. It's from Tuesday Morning and it's a REALLY good deal. It's $79.99 for the table (with built-in storage and a reversible top) and a 55 (or 70, I can't remember) piece train track with cars, cranes, people, etc. At Target they have their Circo brand table that I was going to get (which is on sale right now for $69.99, down from $79.99) but that is just the table with no trains included so I feel like this is a pretty good deal. Plus, I have a figure-8 set and an oval set of tracks already so with the ones we have plus the ones that come with the table, I think we'll have plenty of configurations to set up for Thomas.

Showing the reversible top and built-in storage bins.

Since this picture she has added 2, maybe 3 more stickers. As you can see, she's more than half-way done.

Last, but not least, I came across some pictures of her from this summer on my phone that are too cute not to share. Here she is learning about the joys of puddle jumping.

These last four are dedicated to Auntie Mamy

 I'm sorry for all of the pictures but hey, I did warn you!


  1. Oh yeah, thank you for the new post and LOTS of photos. I can't believe how she loves to fly down those REALLY BIG slides and the puddle jumping pics are as we all remember...FUN!

    She is progressing excellently on her goal to Thomas the train. It'll feel great to have no diapers afterwards...for a while anyway.

  2. Aww...I'm so glad Gromit got a chance or two to go out and play. He sure was fun to make!
