Happy Friday, friends!! It's been another week of snow days around here, it was regularly scheduled programming for Monday & Tuesday, followed with TWO snowstorms and we have been out of the rest of the week! :) Part of me is over it & beyond ready for spring, then the other part sees Waverly's face in it and almost considers moving us to a place where this actually happens on the regular. Almost. ;)
I wanted to thank you for all your sweet support on Waverly's bed transition I shared earlier this week, as always, I am so appreciative of your helpful comments & ability to relate. We are definitely not experts (far from it) & I'm sure we will have a set-back before too long (like when she figures out she is physically able to move from the bed), but so far, so good, & we are happy!
Randomly, we also have other big girl news to share, Waverly is officially potty-trained! It actually happened the same day that we moved her to her new bed, which we didn't plan AT ALL. She had been going potty at home for a while now, pretty much since I did the three-day boot camp over the summer, but it definitely wasn't something that happened all the time & it had never happened while we were out of the house. Then last week we ran out of diapers, like literally didn't even have one, so I had to put her in big girl panties to run to Target & get them. I was completely nervous, but as soon as we got there she told me she had to go & after I took her to the bathroom, she went! :) A total first for us. After that, she asked to go back twice in the same trip & then when we got home. So we rolled with it, & pretty much have ever since, with pull-ups still at night for now! :) I'm so proud of her & definitely excited to have only one set of diapers to change come June, but seriously, did it really all have to happen that same day (the same day we had her first mani & pedi, by the way)?! She is SUCH a big girl. ;)
Also, for what it's worth, I don't want to sound like we have our shit completely together over here with all this happening. We still have a pacifier problem (yes, still), that seems to have gotten worse since these recent big girl developments. She was only using them at night & naps, then I think I got more lenient over a short sickness she had and because I have been so proud of her lately. Any advice is definitely welcome & appreciated, I know this problem will only get worse once little sister has her own pacifiers in a few short months!
Lastly, a quick sneak peek of a fun girls snowy session we had with our friend, Brooke earlier this week! I can't even explain how much I love the fact that I have pictures of my growing belly in the snow, something I didn't think I would have be able to get in Virginia Beach! I can't wait to share more, Brooke is so talented & we are so thankful to be able to work with her!
