Photo contest update

Thanks for all of the comments. I entered #7 into the contest. The contest doesn't end until September, and I don't plan on winning, but it was fun to enter.

Here is a picture showing the love that Frenchie has for her new ball...

And here is goofy girl...


Rubie's BFF came over today...

Doing their favorite thing together: screaming!

Rubie's usual popsicle face...

Update on Progress

Potty training: Rubie hasn't had any more accidents! I knew she was ready, but had to wait for all of our trips to be over (couldn't go into all of those public restrooms).

Potty Awareness: "Frenchie puts she's pee pee in the grass."

Sharing: Not as good of a report. I said, "Here are your My Little Pony panties," and she said, "No, MINE." She thought I was trying to take her little ponies, and trying to explain that they are called MY Little Ponies, is impossible.

Grammar: She is still struggling with pronouns, ex: "Him pulled him's tail," and "She wants she's bone."

Adoptive Families Photo Contest

Adoptive Families Magazine is having a photo contest, and I am thinking about entering a picture of Rubie (not planning on winning, just entering). I need help deciding which picture to use. Please leave me a comment to let me know which picture you like the best. Yes, this means those friends and family members that don't leave comments need to do so! You don't have to register, just choose anonymous, and write your name in the comment.

Go, Potty, Go!

Okay, Rubie has been wearing big girl panties for 2 days now (except for naps and bed time) - we have had 2 accidents so far. Cross your fingers that this is it!

The Beach

Here are a few pictures from Rubie's first trip to the ocean. She absolutely loved it, and I think we will be returning...

Hotel Pool

The hotel we stayed at had a sandy beach that went into the pool. Rubie loved it!

Sea World

Rubie riding in one of Elmo's Flying Fish...

Feeding the dolphins - It was really amazing to be able to feed and pet the dolphins!

Notice the shadow (I almost made it into a picture)...
