Traci is 2!!

As I woke up this morning, I couldn't believe that 2 years ago I was in the hospital with my new baby girl! Traci was born bright and early in the morning, (thanks to a wonderful scheduled C-Section) and she still has like this time clock that wakes her up at the same time every morning. Regardless of the time she went to bed!! :)
I love watching her grow and learn every day. She is just so amazing and such a wonderful helper. We call her our little mommy. And no joke, she tends to repeat EVERYTHING that I say. As I am finishing up her book for this year, it is crazy to see how much she has changed in just one year!
So here is to you my little Miss Traci Lue! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Mommy is one Happy Camper!!

You see this cute little girl standing on that bathroom sink? All decked out in her princess pretties from her Aunt Neil & Uncle Travis for Christmas. Well let me tell you, she has just made me the happiest mom ever!!!!! Over Christmas Holiday we spent it in the Malad with my in-laws. And the whole time I was there, I was watching my little Traci Lue very closely and I new that once we got home and settled back down, we were going to attempt the big "P" word, Potty Training!!!!
Now for any one who knows me knows, that I had a heck of a time potty training my son Neilsen. I spent lots of days just crying and frustrated that I was doing something wrong with him, or that I started to soon with him because he just seemed to have taken quite a long time to finally get it down. It was quite the celebration once he finally got the hang of it all, that I looked at my mom and said, "Traci better do better then this or I so not doing it!" LOL.
I wasn't even planning trying to potty train Traci this early but hey, when she comes to me and is wanting to do it, by all means I say give it a shot. I mean, who wouldn't want to be down to only one kid in diapers right!
SO last week we started the Potty Training. The first day was a little rusty but by day two, I had a feeling that I just might have trained by her 2 birthday. (Which is next Thursday).
I am very proud and freaking excited to report that with just 6 days of starting her potty training, we have head OVERALL 3 huge accidents and 2 baby accidents (non of them were the poppy!) That is right my not even 2 year old has pretty much potty trained herself! THANK GOODNESS!!!!!!! We are going on day 3 of accident free!
I am so proud of her, and I am still amazed to believe that she is doing so well. So to any mothers who have had a rough time with potty training, trust does get better! :)
