OK I still owe a blog about NY and I am working on it but I'm gonna update about this week real quick b/c it was a good week.
Reese has been working on potty training but not really pushing her to much. Thursday night she did really well using the potty so I decided to send her to school Friday in her big girl undies instead of a diaper. I sent three changes of clothes just in case as well. When I came back at the end of the day she was still in the same outfit. No accidents, even during nap time. we continued at home and made it all day w/ no accidents. Saturday Mat and I took her to the National Zoo, Mat hadn't been since he was a kid. I was worried about no diapers but luckily we made it through the day w/ only one accident at the zoo (and one at home as well). Today we tried for day three. We went to Hillary's house for Neil's 31st b-day party. I kept getting distracted by hanging out w/ people to remind her to go potty and she was distracted playing with friends. So we had a couple accidents. But I am still very proud of my little lady.
Thursday was a big day besides using the potty lots. I received a letter from the courthouse saying her name change was complete. Her legal name is now Reese Elizabeth Stewart!!!! Big mistake giving her Jonathan's name. One of many but relatively easy to fix. Now I get some practice for the LONG process after your name changes. It will come in handy after I'm married I'll know who needs to be notified. Reese may not have bank accounts or a drivers license but there is still social security, the courts, doctors, school ,etc. Also good practice since her name may change again if things go the way we hope.
Last exciting event of the week: Friday was the last day of the summer program at Reese's school. When I picked her up we went to the 2yr old classroom to get stuff out of her cubby. She spend her time 1/2 and 1/2 btwn the 2yr old and 3 yr old classroom so at the end of the day she's usually in the 3yr old room which is the pre-school room. Her cubby wasn't there anymore. Well the cubby was but the box with her name on it was gone. I went back to the 3yr old room and asked if they knew what happened. They said Reese had been moved up for the school year. This is super exciting b/c she doesn't turn 3 til Feb so they could have made her wait till next year to start in the pre-school room. Even in the 2yr old room they do pre-school like learning letters, numbers, writing, animals, plants, people, etc. But they do more in the older classrooms and really start practicing sitting and listening to a teacher. So it's very exciting that Reese gets to start Pre-School tomorrow!!!
OK so that was our awesome weekend. No funny Reese story since the whole blog is about her :-)
