On the potty training front I've been somewhat successful. One of the girls (twin #2)just decided that she's a Big Girl and is now potty trained. I'd like to say I had something to do with it but it was just her. We still have an occasional accident but really, she did it on her own. The other twin?? Well, she could care less. I'm not sure if it's defiance because her sister got so much positive attention for peeing in the potty or what. Twin #1 also talked later and is just waaaaaay laid back in general. Who knows. I'm not worried about it. Right now, I'm just happy I have half the diapers to change. To celebrate I made #2 new underwear and she got to pick out the butt design. She kept yelling, "I want flowers on my butt!!!" So be it. I also tried my hand at piping. I need a lot more practice. I love this pattern (that*darn*kat review on PatternReview.com) because you can use itty-bitty-teeny pieces of left-over knit.
The applique pieces are all from my husband's deceased grandmother. I just love having really cute fabric for appliques like this. Before she died, I think her plan was to make a scrap quilt. She had hundreds of 4" squares cut out. They are all random fabrics. You can tell some are very old. She would love that I am using them. Like I've said in previous posts, I think the most important thing I can do is pass history on to my kids. Their great-grandmother's fabric is part of their history.
When twin #1 saw this she said, "Awwwwww, soooo cute! I want bunnies!!!" So I may use bunnies to lure her to the potty.
Enjoy! We went camping last night so I'm a bit tired. It was just me, a tent, and three kids. I'm whooped.
