What a joy to mother this little girl. Her name Hope Ireland, literally means "Vibrant Hope" and she is full of it. She has a personality all her own and she keeps me quessing and laughing. The last two weeks have been huge for her as she has started potty training and sleeping in a big girl bed...none of which was initiated by me. She started wanting to be changed every time she went and asking to go on the potty and she started climbing out of her crib. I was dragging my feet on both but decided to go for it and she is doing pretty well. She loves being big. She keeps walking around saying she is four. She has an opinion on how her hair is combed and the past week she wants "ig-tals mommy" everyday. Too cute.
