Wow!.....I am a blog slacker!!! I've been having so much fun with Eddie and the girls that I have completely neglected our blog! Well I guess it's time to catch everyone up on what we've been doing this summer! I will start with our great vacation. This summer we took the kids to Florida and my wonderful parents watched them, while Eddie and I went to Vegas..... ALL BY OURSELVES! We left the kids for 6 days and may I say it was wonderful!! Eddie has been working a lot and we both needed this well deserved break! We relaxed by the pool, went shopping, went out to delicious dinners, gambled, saw a show, got pampered, slept LATE, worked out....it was AMAZING!!!!! Here are some pics from our vacation:

The coolest milestones we celebrated this summer were......
Emma lost her very FIRST TOOTH!!!!!!!
|She got $20 from the tooth fairy!!!|
and Lyla is now fully potty trained, takes a shower, and sleeps in a toddler bed!
|We converted Lyla's crib into a toddler bed in June!|
|We also have her taking showers. We found this cool modification which helps her be very independent! She gets in and out of the shower all by herself because the shower is low to the ground.|
|There's my big girl!|
|She was also potty trained at the end of July! Big Girl underwear!!!|
|Here she is!!|
|I have these in my house. I didn't get a small potty for her. She gets up on the step and I just place her on the potty. She reaches the toilet paper by herself and wipes her private in the front by herself. I have to help her with the back.|
This is what we've been up to this summer! To all my blogger friends I will catch up and comment on your blogs soon!! I promise!!
