Now my Lady is 100% potty trained during the day. It's amazing how quick she catches on to things. She does her business and we do a dump it dance then flush it away. She gets sooo excited! I am such a proud mom! I'm so lucky because I anticipated these milestones were going to be torture, but I couldn't be more wrong.
High 5 to my 2 year old for being so amazing!

Everything for Emerson's 2nd was done by me..
So total I spent about $50 for everything...food included..yes! You read that right!
What you see in the picture :
Hanging on the wall was her banner which was really simple to make. Don't waste $30-$40 on buying one from etsy or ebay, make it yourself for around $6!!
What you will need : Card stock(sale for $1.99 @ Michaels)/tape or glue/glitter glue($1.99 each)/scissors/*optional glitter paper*(.99 @ Michaels)/tulle or ribbon(or both)
Use clear dish and trace...pretty simple! Cut them out and glue them in place

Everyone says they can't believe their kid is another year older...and that's honestly because we really can't! Time just won't slow down, and so I find myself the mother of a two year old. A very energetic, smart, gorgeous, and funny little two year old.
I had her preparing for her big day telling her she was having a party and chanting "party..party..party!" so she was amped when she woke up to a decorated house!
We had a small get together with just immediate family. It was perfect since I also had to split the weekend with spending time with Shane. I am so thankful he was able to be here for her special weekend too.
She loved playing with her cousin Tucker and bopping the pinata with a vacuum extender..you so read that right! (I couldn't figure out the pull a string deal and ended up ripping the whole lot out!) she even blew out her own candle! I couldn't be prouder of the little person she has become.
Happy 2nd birthday my little Pooter pot pie!

Christmas was uhh-may-zing!
First off my husband came home for a little over 2 weeks. It felt like we had a normal life for a while. Almost...(ALMOST) made me forget about this rough ride we have been on. Emerson ate up every second of her daddy's attention..nothing makes my heart burst like watching those two together.
We had a quiet Christmas morning at home, Shane's parents came over to watch Emer open her presents. She totally got it this year. Well I doubt she fully understands it all but definitely enough to make it the best Christmas I've ever had. She woke up and saw the cookies Santa ate..all of her presents, and was more than ready to get thigs moving. She let out high pitched squeals and threw her hands in the air as if saying "it's just what I wanted!" even though she had no idea she actually wanted it until it was opened!
We headed to Grams for Christmas day. More presents with the same reaction, and I loved getting to watch it all over again. Dinner per usual and then it was home later that evening.
Her ultimate favorites this year:
• Baby doll stroller
• Doll house
• Baby Alive
• Rain Boots
You would think she would die for a power wheel..nope! She hates it!
