"Lily is my best friend," says Piper.

I am loving how our girls really love each other. Piper already wants to share a room with Lily and Lily lights up when she sees Piper (and our dog, Boone). It is a special connection that sisters have. I have it with mine and am so thankful for them. They really are my best friends and I pray the same for my girls.
that's really Lily and not a doll.

Oh, camp is the place to be.

Here are a few of the many wonderful moments of being a camp family. The one of her falling in the mud is my very favorite! She didn't cry- she was just concerned.

My Arch Nemesis.

So it's an inanimate object- can it still be my arch nemesis? I'm at a loss for what to do. We let go of the pacie, but the potty is not an object of my 3-year-old's affection. Seriously, the other day I cleaned up "messes" ELEVEN times. It was a horrible day which led to lots of "family discussions." So that's where we are right now. Any encouragement/ advice would be helpful or just something to make me laugh. And I know people say she won't go to school in diapers or walk down the aisle in diapers, but there's always the potential for that special story on Oprah about the kid that is still diapers. yikes.
