Don’t let these photos fool you. It’s been a lot of potty training around here. Instead of posting pictures from our living room, I thought I’d share some of the other things we’ve been up to. You know, just in case you’re not worried about whether or not Ellie can “make pee or poop” in the potty.
Last month, Ellie took her first dance class. If you can’t tell from this picture, she was really excited about it. This was taken on her first day. She looks about 16 here, which makes me want to hug her.
I had the talented Megan of Crazy Bananas Creative Studio take new headshots for me. I needed updated photos for work, since the last round was taken just after I’d given birth. I love that she integrated the Kansas City skyline into a few. My dress is from Frankly Basic and quickly becoming a new favorite.
So, Ellie’s class had a performance, which was equal parts adorable and funny. One minute, she would be intently focused on the move, and the next, she’d be talking to her classmates or the audience. We took a look at the photos last night, and she asked why she wasn’t doing the same move as everyone else in some of the pictures. It’s a mystery.
A few weeks ago, we headed to my hometown to visit the grandparents. We headed to the zoo, but since it hadn’t opened yet, we switched gears and went to Peter Pan Park. I had forgotten how beautiful it is. I mean, look at that view.
#ICYMI, I’ve been working to get my ducks in a row to bring you a better experience on Missalaneyus.com. (They’re very stubborn.) As part of that, I’m hosting my first reader survey, which will close today at midnight. I’ll use the responses collected here to plan August’s editorial calendar.
