we have noticed that ellen is more "aware" of when she has to go to the bathroom when she is not wearing her diaper. for instance....when she has just gotten out of the bath, or about to take a bath, or getting her diaper changed she will tell us she has to use the potty, and does. i decided to take a bit of a risk yesterday and see if she could go diaper free for a while, thinking that might help her get used to "going potty." i am proud to report that ellen conquered the entire day (aside from nap time) totaling 17 "number 1's" and 2 "number 2's." i couldn't believe it. it was like she had been potty trained for years. i blurred the contents of the container to save those with weak stomachs. tomorrow she might learn to spell her name and ride a wheelie on her bike.
ellen has been falling asleep in some funny places the last couple days. one was in the middle of the living room and the other is obviously when she was eating lunch. i think she has so much energy and then all of a sudden she hits the wall and is gone. maybe she is narcoleptic.
ok, i'm 99.99% positive that the top picture is a golden finch. however, i have never heard of a blue finch. i looked it up on the internet and they are only native to south america. small chance we have a blue finch at our feeder. it is the same size and looks much like the golden finch except for the blue color. can anyone out there put a name on this blue one?

ellen has become fairly skilled at using the potty. we are nowhere near potty trained but she is really getting the hang of this thing. i would say we get 3 or 4 potties in the potty a week. she potties in the potty, removes the toxic waste container and comes dancing with the good news to us, we then take it to the big potty, flush it and wave bye bye, and finally we eat our potty celebration candy and dance some more.
