Emily has been attending a great preschool here in town. She has done very well in school and absolutely loves it! She hates non-school days so I have to try pretty hard to keep her entertained. She has developed a very extensive vocabulary and learned the abcs, how to count to 10, and she can even recognize a few letters. I think she's off to a great start! They had a little Thanksgiving feast for her class and it was very cute. :) As you can see, Emily is the tallest in her class by far!!

Michael had his first weekend ever with the girls alone at the beginning of November. I flew home to Texas to celebrate my mother's 50th birthday. I have to say I was pretty impressed with his parenting skills. I came home to a clean house and the girls had a great weekend. He took them to the zoo and some other sites around town. It looks like the girls enjoyed themselves even though it was a little cold!

We have been waiting a long time to have a kid graduate from diapers. I tried hard to get Rachel potty trained but I would quit whenever she didn't feel well. She pretty much guided that whole process. When it came time to train Emily,I thought it would be very easy. I forgot to take into account how stubborn Em can be!! She fought me for months. She can hold it like no little kid can! The girl has a 10 gallon bladder and she could spend all day on the potty drinking juice and not have to pee. She would wait for me to put a diaper on her to go somewhere and instantly go potty- very frustrating! After several months, we have finally had success! It has been a long 5 years changing diapers but we finally have one kid potty trained- yeah!! :)
Emily got a present for finally making it through 2 days without an accident!
