Beth made a big deal with Merrilee about setting up the new potty in the bathroom. Sure enough, the first time on it, Merrilee proudly christened the potty with her first pee pee.
Then, when Mark got home around 7pm (late night because of the Ravens being forced to move their game in Houston from Sunday to Monday) he was ushered into the bathroom to see the first poop poop in the potty.
This was all a very big deal to Merrilee. She knows that she is doing a grown up thing. There was another pee pee before bedtime, and still another first thing Friday morning when she got out of bed. She really has the hang of it already.
She has developed a terrific appetite. She loves broccoli, bananas, and even the meat loaf at Matthew’s 1600. The pediatrician said she needed to gain weight, and Merrilee seems to have taken this task to heart.
What is it about little kids and mice? Merrilee loves the little mouse on one of her outfits. And yesterday, we received a very thoughtful gift from John Matthews and his family. For those of you who know John, he has a great collection of all things Disney. I mean a world class collection.
You can see Merrilee loved her gift!
Thanks John! We can’t wait to take her on her first visit to Mouse-land in Orlando, but we think we want to wait a few more years. Mark is already bracing for the Dumbo ride and Mr. Toad. She’s an adventurous little girl though, so she might really enjoy the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad too!
This will be a big weekend for Merrilee. She gets to meet Mark’s nephew and his family. We bet Merrilee and Jordan are really going to hit it off and become good friends!
