i cant believe time has moved along so much that "baby esther" (as she has been known as since birth) is potty training. she has taken to it well. she has not had a pee pee accident all week except 1 time & she stopped herself & ran to the potty and finished her business. when it clicks it just clicks with kids. i didnt force her. she has just done it. if it sticks she will be my only child so far potty trained under 2.
but there is one catch. she insist on running around naked.....and i dont mean some naked...i mean like completely naked. since we have been sequestered because of levi's illness it's been a good opportunity to stay home and well be naked - but for only those under 2 years old. but i do need to get her back in some form of clothing without fighting too much. but boy she is cute!! SUPER CUTE!!! and she is smart. she is strong willed. she is amazing. i love her. her name suits her....Esther is persian & means "star". she's a star...a bright star..that shines like no other. i always liken the name Esther to the saying "for such a time as this." she is here in my life...for such a time as this.....she brings me much needed joy and she loves me..accepts me...wants me around..without question..without judgement...i need her. i'm so proud of her and who she is at barely 2 - with a will to be heard that i dont see in people my own age.
as you can see she is unashamed with her nakedness. this picture is at an odd angle, but she is just beautiful and built like a brick house - solid! (not quite 36-24-36, but one day.). she also has the softest skin - like silk. i'm amazed at how soft her skin is.
and this picture below is obviously esther sitting on the counter. she wants to always sit on the counter while i'm preparing food. which usually i dont mind, but with her naked.....ummmm no thank you. it just seems kind of pervy to have her naked all the time with her parts flashing about. if she would just keep the panties on it would make me feel a bit less uneasy. but anyway, she did put on panties this time. and she had hijacked clay's fast food drink that is on the edge of the picture. but again...she is beautiful. she's a firework....she makes us notice as she goes"boom, boom, boom"
"you just gotta ignite the light
and let it shine
just own the night
like the Fourth of July
cause baby you're a firework
come on show 'em what you're worth
make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
as you shoot across the sky-y-y
baby you're a firework
come on let your colors burst
make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
you're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own
boom, boom, boom
[you're} even brighter than the moon, moon, moon"
