Triple Threat

So you already know how much Eggy loves to sing.  I'm not sure what she likes more:  singing or dancing.
Anyway, watch this video first so you know what Eggy's dancing to: (You can probably skip to 1:45ish to get to the song)

Eggy's own choreography to Nobody:

If I want her to be the next Beyonce or Justin Timberlake so that her millions of dollars will take care of the hubby and I in our old age, I guess I should get her to start acting too.  She can definitely fake cry to get what she wants.  Working on other emotions:
Hmm, I wonder if Toddlers & Tiaras is casting.  


PS - Thanks for all the birthday wishes.  Makes a girl feel special.  (And old.)

Beauty Queen

My mom asked Eggy if she was pretty.  Eggy said, "No.  Beautiful."  Wow.  At least she's not lacking in confidence.

Snack Time

I didn't even know how to eat an artichoke until a few years ago.  Eggy's already a pro.  
I was planning on sharing it with Eggy but she ended up eating the whole thing by herself.

Potty Training: WIN!

It's only been a few days and I might be jinxing it but Eggy is totally rocking at peeing on the potty.

Saturday night - Eggy's hanging out diaperless.  I forget why she wasn't wearing a diaper.  It's probably because Eggy appah had just gotten rid of her soiled diaper and decided not to put a new one on her.  If it had been me, I would have just put a new diaper on.  As it was, I was constantly watching Eggy, telling her not to sit on the sofa or the rug; to sit on her Pororo mat instead.  If she had an accident, it would have been a lot easier to clean the mat.  Anyway, after some time, Eggy says, "Eggy shi-shi," goes and sits down on the potty and PEES!  She did it!  All on her own.  We didn't even have to say anything.  So after she peed, I gave her a gummi bear.  About ten minutes later, she says she has to pee again and she sits on the potty again!  So of course, I give her another gummi bear.  Eggy does this whole little bit of pee-gets a gummi bear routine another two times and that's when I realize my baby is an evil genius.  Okay, not evil but definitely sneaky.  Eggy was letting out her pee a little bit at a time so she could get the maximum amount of gummi bears.  She was totally working the system!  So I told her, "No more.  Make one big peepee.  Let it all out."  At the same time, I was pretty impressed with her bladder control.  It wasn't too long ago where she'd only tell us "pee pee" about half a second before she had pee running down her leg.
Sunday - In the morning, we just hung out at home and Eggy peed in the potty every. single. time.  Not one accident!  One time, she came up to me, told me she had to go, and managed to hold it until we got to the potty.  I still put a diaper on her for her nap though.  In the afternoon, we went to the hubby's uncle's house for his baby boy's one month so Eggy wore a diaper there too.  But when we got back home, she peed in the potty again before her bath.
Today - This morning, I asked Eggy if she wanted to go potty and she said no.  I think she might have even peed in the diaper right before I asked her.  But after a couple minutes, she said she had to go and I put her on the toilet and she peed.  And when we got to my mom's house (I had work), Eggy peed again two more times.  This time, she got m&m's.  Again, no accidents today!  She did poop in her diaper today (right after she woke up from her nap) so she hasn't pooped in the potty yet.

But isn't she doing awesome?  We are so proud.  It's like a switch turned on and she just gets it now.  I'm sure the reward of the candy helps a lot but we used to try bribing her before and she would still refuse.  I wish I could take credit for how well Eggy's doing but I have no idea what changed.  All these months of trying to get her to use the potty and one day, Eggy just decides that she's ready, I guess.  Maybe she was getting tired of wearing a diaper since the weather's been so hot?  It can't be comfortable wearing that.  Whatever it is, I'm pretty excited.  And she looks so cute in her panties (although she seems to prefer being butt nekkid).

Pooping is haaard

This is how she gets her M&Ms.  She'll poop in her diaper and ask for M&Ms (or jelly beans or whatever).  I tell her no, she has to poop in the potty to get an M&M.  So she goes and sits on the potty with the poop still in her diaper and says she did it.  Sometimes I give in because I figure at least she sat on the potty.  Who's training who here?

Beach Day

Eggy appah had last Thursday off so we went down to Laguna Beach with halmeh in the morning.  It was perfect weather.  I don't think Eggy's been to a beach since we went to Maui last year so I'm pretty sure she doesn't remember what that was like.  But she seemed excited that we were going.

So even though Eggy seemed excited to see the water, she didn't really want to go in.  Which is good because I didn't bring a bathing suit for her.  I don't know if it was because the water was cold or because of the waves, but she didn't really like it.  But she did enjoy playing in the sand.   
Until she brushed the hair out of her face with her sandy hand and got sand in her mouth.  Yuck.  

Normally, I don't really like the beach.  I just like to look at it but I don't like being IN it.  Too much sand everywhere.  But this was a really nice beach, really clean, and I think we'll be bringing Eggy back again this summer.  She's already asked me to go to the beach a few times.

Happy 4th!

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Independence Day!
We went over to the hub's aunt's house where fireworks are legal.  Eggy had so much fun, running around, playing with her aunties (cousins?  I guess the technical term is first cousins once removed), and eating popsicles.
Eggy and O are almost 4 months apart.  Cute, no?  Don't let the above picture fool you.  They look like they're BFFs but Eggy must still be upset about the smackdown last year.  Even though O was quite affectionate and gave Eggy lots of hugs, Eggy wasn't ready to forgive.  And when O tried to give Eggy a kiss, Eggy leaned away.
  I guess Eggy had a good reason to be wary though because this picture?  
This is right before O punked Eggy and forced her out of the car.  Not only that, she also stole Eggy's corn on the cob that Eggy appah was feeding her.  

Anyway, Eggy loved the fireworks.  It was the first year where she was actually aware of all the excitement.  And she wasn't scared of the loud noises either.  Maybe because she was used to seeing the fireworks at Disneyland?  
It wasn't enough that Eggy was clapping.  She made sure everyone around her would clap too:  me, her dad, GooGoo.  Bossy.  
We didn't end up staying till the end.  Once the tree caught fire, it was time to go!  (It was a very very small fire.  But then I found out the neighbor's house really caught on fire.  Yikes!)  Plus, Eggy was getting tired and she even said she wanted to go home.  
And when she woke up this morning, the first thing she talked about were the fireworks and the "sprinklers" (sparklers).
