The love word

Yesterday was the first day when Mei said I love you. It melts my heart. She says it as reply to when we say I love you and I know She probably does not really know what it means, but it makes me happy momma:) I can't wait when she will say it out of the blue. Just like her bigger brother and you know he means it.

Every day I am amazed by this little girl. She talks so much and I do not understand always what she is saying. I do think she pulls some Chinese on us, although my husband does not think so. They told us when we got her that she just talks baby babble and nothing else, but let me tell you it all seems structured. I do not know, maybe I just imagine this. Anyway she comes up with new word every day and repeats everything we say.

Potty training - I still did not take her off her night diapers. Her naps are mostly dry now. She has no accidents during daytime, not even in daycare. And yes - she is a STAR there. I feel sorry for Marco. She gets greeted more enthusiastically than Marco and everybody tells us how pretty she is. I know she is pretty, but sometimes they forget to give compliment to Marco and that hurts. Here I usually step in and move the conversation on Marco. My sweet boy. He is so good to her. Otherwise everything is great in our household. We all enjoy the cooler weather.


  1. Right after I talked to you, I decided to potty-train Brielle and she was great! Super easy, which I am sooo thankful for! We only use diapers at night and she stays dry 90% of the time! Thanks for the nudge!
