Happy New Year!

Some of you know that Esther is a late riser, like her dad and mom. Usually E doesn't wake up until 9:30 (or later). This morning we were woken up bright and early at 8 am to our building's fire alarm. That sure is an exciting way to wake up! We had to stand outside for only a few minutes before the fire department told us it was a false alarm. Welcome 2009!
So far 2009 has already brought us a few changes. Today, without going into too much detail, Esther had a break-through experience with the potty. And tonight, she is sleeping in her big girl bed (which just means her crib has been converted into a toddler bed). So far I've had to go into her room twice to have her get back in bed, but it's going much smoother than the last time we tried this.
Esther got a Diego puzzle from her uncle Jerry and loves it. Most of the time she's pretty patient with figuring out where the pieces go.

This is her true tired look.
For Nana Marilyn's birthday, we went and visited for the night. Esther loved the little cradle her great-grand-father made, though she is a little big for it.

We finally got to see Cousin Chrissy playing basketball. She is on the varsity high school team and is so fun to watch. She is one tough chick. She even got fouled out of her game, but luckily it was at the end. And they won! Yahoo!

Esther got to help Nana put out nuts and seeds for the birds.
Later a blue jay came and enjoyed the treat.

Lounging with Mommy.
Look who's wearing panties!

She wanted her friend R2D2 to join her in the bathroom for a potty break.

We got Esther some Diego boy undies. She doesn't know they're for boys. Hee hee.

I've thought about just getting her some boy undies too! Glad I am not the only one!!!
