Poor girl loves her big girl panties, but going number 2 stresses her out. I remember this with Stella, but as soon as we put a diaper on her she'd go. We did that so she wouldn't hold it for too long. I know this is a lot of TMI, but Em can hold it even longer. The diaper trick doesn't work. Any tips? We've started a sticker chart and she loves it. We're hoping this helps and I bought my last box of pull ups tonight (at least that's what I keep telling myself), so we're hoping she relaxes a bit with #2.
Besides that...I can't believe we're ALMOST done with diapers! What? Where are my babies?

Good Job Stell-Bell!

TA DA!!! She was so proud of herself. And if you listen to the video we have I was one proud mama too!!!!
Proud of her flower for Mrs. Alex.
I have no doubt this is one of MANY performances from this little bumble bee in the future.
We're taking a break this winter because we're so busy, but I'm sure we'll be back at it in the spring.
Oh and by the way, Emme wears this costume at least once everyday. It's usually the attire at breakfast before getting dressed for real, ha!

"Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up." Proverbs 12:25
If you know me at all, then you know I was NEVER a cheerleader (at least not the type with pom poms and cute hair). My coordination and height nipped that opportunity in the bud. But during a recent "ah-ha" moment with the ladies of my Bible study we were talking about dreams, what excites us.
Well, I love to write (hence why you're seeing more of me on this blog), but when I really sat down to think about it I realized I get a major high on watching people's visions/dreams become reality. Is that weird? I don't know, but if someone has a vision to start something new I LOVE to see it become reality. Big or small I get so excited. I remember when I was a reporter back in the day I enjoyed telling "feel good" stories not only because it was a positive in a very negative world, but it usually meant I was telling a story on a topic someone was passionate about or proud of. Whether it's some one's desire to further their career, start a new adventure, expand their family, explore a new hobby, visit a dream location...I get excited to hear their plans, their goals to get there, and then of course watching the dreams become reality. And when/if possible I love to help in anyway that I can. If that means i just encourage them along the way, then sign me up.
So you see...I AM A CHEERLEADER. I may not have pom poms or a cute little skirt, but I can encourage my fellow dreamers. Maybe I'm meant to be a motivational speaker?!?!
Right now, I bust out my "pom poms" for two little princesses that prance around my house and keep me on my toes and knees all at the same time. Stella's dream right now is to be The Tooth Fairy when she gets older, so we talk a lot about pixie dust and how she'll get into rooms to leave treats for other little toothless kiddos. Emme is entrenched in dance and princesses right now, so she wants all things magical. I just asked her what she wants to be when she grows up...her response, "Rapunzel, Tinkerbell, Brave, Tiana..."
Big dreamers here at the Yazwinski house! And since my dad is awesome and has an incredible bucket list we're ALL living a dream with him in January. He and my mom are taking us all to Disneyland in January. Wahoo!!! To say I'm excited is an understatement.
Disneyland is one of my most favorite places and to experiment it with my girls while they're consumed with princesses will be beyond magical.
Ok, I feel like I'm rambling...so GO TEAM.

Every time I hear this song I find myself singing the chorus at the top of my lungs. I love this song by Laura Story. What if blessings come through rain drops? What if...sometimes we're so wrapped up in the "now" that we can't see the blessings around us.
