Monday morning Ellery woke up and said, "I wear big girl panties now, mom." I was a little hesitant because it was a school day, but I decided to just go with it. I'm so glad I did because she has officially worn them two days in a row, even to gymnastics. She has had a couple of accidents (all at home, thankfully), but I know those are bound to happen. I am so proud of her! It's so strange to not see that little diaper booty.
And this morning I woke up to a very puffy, congested, and eye-watering little boy. The day got worse and he started running a fever, his very first. I ran him to the doctor and he has his first ear infection...poor guy.
So lots of firsts this week at our household...one good and one not-so good.
