Potty time! and COOKIE!

There has been no interest in the potty what so ever, until last night. Before the kids got their bath, the girl asked to have her diaper taken off so that she could sit on the potty. Up until now, neither kid wanted anything to do with it, and would hop right off if I sat them on it. So, she sat, and we talked about the bath and she looked at the little book that she found in the bedroom. Then after a little bit, she hopped off and pointed to the tub. I just figured that she was ready for her bath, and she was, but there was also pee in the potty! How exciting! She loved waving bye bye to the pee as we flushed it.
This has been a big week of firsts. Both babies are signing like crazy and signing things I had no idea they knew. We are also hearing a bunch of new words. They have been talking for a while, but it takes a trained ear to have any idea what they're talking about. And even then it's not always that coherant. Two nights ago I was working in the other room and the papa gave the kids each a cookie. I was snapped out of my train of thought by a little voice that very distinctly and loudly said "coo-kie". I walked into the living room to see the boy proudly holding up his cookie with a huge grin on his face. I then was treated to another round of "coo-KIE", and the corresponding sign.
Today's word of the day is "OK", but it sounds more like "aah-KAY!" I'll have to try to get it on video.

It's been so long!

I didn't realize how long it had been since my last post. So much has been happening and I've been so busy that the days are ticking by so quickly.
Almost all of my sewing time recently has been spent working on a wonderful set of outfits for a summer wedding. I've been making two flowergirl dresses with matching bloomers, a pair of bloomeralls, three sun hats, and three bridesmaid sashes. All in cream silk with chocolate brown and gold/green accents. I think I may have sewn about a mile of silk into the three layered ruffles that edge the dresses and bloomers, but it was so worth it. They are beautiful and I'm really excited to see pictures of the whole wedding party. 
I am also so excited to have been asked to join K&F Shops as a permanent member! K&F is on hiatus for the summer, but will be having a super re-opening stocking on 8/8/08 at 8pm.
