We have had precious few days of warmth and sun up here in the Arctic Circle. We're really not even close to the Arctic Circle, but sometimes it sure seems like it would be nice to live much, MUCH further south!
However, the other day, Clara and I had a wonderful day in the backyard... let me show you!
We have a lot of pictures of her peering into this bucket.
"It's a BUCKET!!!"
Ice Cream Sandwich Face. I discovered that they make miniature ice cream sandwiches - I think they're supposed to be for dietary 'Only 100 Calorie!' type purposes, but I'm pretty sure they're just the regular ice cream sandwiches - just toddler sized!
And she LOVES them! She gets almost to the end before it starts to melt.
She spent almost the entire day diaper-free. I think she only peed once outside of her diaper or a potty that day - and I think it was within a few feet of the potty, so that counts, right?
She's been really interested in using the potty lately. She'll come up to us and say 'I Pee? I pee!' So I'll ask if she has to go pee and she'll say 'Yeah!'. Half the time when she gets to the potty she decides it's just a fun game and doesn't actually want to go through with the diaper removal, but every once in awhile she actually sits bare-bummed on the potty and pees. She's been using the potty exclusively to poop since she was about 8 months old, so she's definitely comfortable on it.
