End of Summer + 20 Months!

So it's the end of summer!  We wrapped it up by spending time with my cousins who were visiting from Virginia. 

Little MJ 

It's amazing how little boys differ from little girls even at this age.  He's 10 times rougher than Morgan was at his age.  And he has 10 times more hair!

And his funny big sister, Makayla!

Tried to do a group picture, but Morgan refused to sit.  We were messing with her play time.

Their dad is my first cousin and we almost grew up like brothers and sisters -- all of my first cousins and I did.  So, though we all live in different places now, I want our children to know each other and love each other just as much as we did.

It's back to work and school for us this week. My aunt just asked me if I was sad that summer was over -- honestly, not really. While I'd love to be off even longer just to have the extra time with Morgan, I could not have asked for a better summer. We've spent time with family, taken Morgan to some fun places, and gotten some things done around the house. All I really asked for.

Last but not least, Morgan turned 20 months yesterday.  My letter to my little munchkin:

Dear Morgan,
You are just four months from being two!  Your favorite thing right now is YoGabbaGabba videos (we never catch the episodes on TV, so I rent the DVDs from the public library).  I have never been a fan of you watching a whole lot of TV shows (and you've never really been interested), but I make an exception for YoGabbaGabba -- you love them!  Lots of music and dancing -- I often find myself singing and dancing to the songs.  Your daddy does, too. :)  And your Honey and your TeeTee Ash.  You should see all of us grown people singing your songs!

For a couple of months now, you've been telling us "poo-poo" when you've done your business.  We bought a potty back then, but we never introduced you to it. Since I'm a huge fan of routine and consistency, I was afraid you'd get confused and disgusted with the whole thing if we were always gone.  So this weekend, we finally introduced you to the potty!

And instead of doing this: have more fun doing this...

...playing with the lid...

...and the play flusher.

Oh, and sticking your foot in the pot.

Potty training should be interesting!  I don't plan to make it a huge deal -- it will happen when you're ready.  But we're gonna have a whole lot of fun getting there (someone may have to remind me I said this one day)!   :~)

I love you, sweet girl, and am praying you have a great day at school tomorrow in your new class!

Have a good week, everyone!  And for those of you that are teachers, I hope you have a great first week back!
