Cabarrus Cty Fair 2010

We took Emma to the county fair last Friday along with Nana, Beverly & Morgan. Let me just say, those babies had a great time. They could not wait to "ride" although they had never done it before. They were also very excited to see the animals but Emma would not touch any of them. She loved the baby ducks & chicks but they were not allowed to pet them, too bad.

Emma's first carousel ride. She loved it although you can't tell from her face.

On the helicopters, I think this was their favorite.

Driving the galopies

Mini monster trucks. This ride was really rough & Emma didn't like it, Morgan loved it.

Potty Time

Yes, it has begun, potty training. Its not that I started it with Emma, she started because Morgan is potty training. She has known that Morgan started using the potty but wasn't very interested until this week, even though we bought her an Abby Cadabby potty seat. My sister kept Emma on Monday while I went to the doctor & did some other errans & much to my surprise Emma went ti ti in the potty at Karen's for the first time after watching Morgan. This is only her second time sitting on the potty & she did it (she sat on the potty while we were at the beach Labor Day). Then yesterday before her bath we tried again & she went ti ti again. Twice in 3 days seems pretty good to me, but we still have a long way to go. Peer pressure can be good at times especially if it will get Emma to use the potty.

Short but Sweet

Over the weekend we went to my Mom's beach house & had a great time, as usual. Unfortunately we forgot to charge our batteries for the camera & we only got a few pics. Emma was very hesitant at first but once she got used to the noise of the waves she did just great, no tears at all. Emma has been asking me every day to go back to Nana's beach house, she had such a good time, except for the ride home. We had been in the car for about an hour & she started screaming, I knew something was wrong, then she threw up. She had not eaten or drank much all day so maybe her tummy was hurting who knows. She was fine about 45 minutes later & was her normal singing/talking self.

We ended up leaving the beach a day early due to my uncle, who had taken a turn for the worst in his battle with cancer. He actually passed away last night but is resting peacefully now in heaven. Please keep his family in your prayers.

She loves her pink chair (great find at a consignment sale)
