I have hardly baked for well over 7 months. Some of our past family traditions have included baking sugar cookies at Halloween and Christmas and taking them around to our neighbors. But, with Erin's cancer, that never happened. The kids have been begging me (for months now) to please, please, please make cookies. Well, we finally did. We all wore our aprons and took turns rolling and cutting out sugar cookies.
Erin had a blast.
Erin has also been very interested in potty training.
She has been ready for quite some time, but with all the chemo and hospital and then the holidays we just felt it was much easier to have her in diapers. When she was in the hospital, they monitored her pee output day and night. During chemo, they changed her every 2 hours. It would not have been cool to make her get out of bed and pee in the middle of the night, every 2 hours. So, now she's finally getting to be a big girl on the potty.
In this picture she says, "YAY, I did it!"
(Oh, and we just love the $4 potty from IKEA.)
We are SO GRATEFUL for life!
