Today I was in 'go for it' situation or a 'go buy more diapers' situation. We were down to 3 diapers in the house but Evi seems SO uninterested in using the potty. I thought that maybe this is the time--if I have no diapers she'll have to adjust and I'll have to clean a few messes in the process. She'll sit on her potty for a long while, but either only after she already went in her diaper, or she'll get up and go in her diaper or underwear. The candy reward didn't work, the new sticker chart I have up hasn't caught on yet. AUGH. I'm seriously doubting if I can do this potty training thing. I had really hoped to take care of this before we have another baby...but I don't know if I can handle it! When I told her pediatrition about where she is in terms of potty training, even he said she's not quite ready. Man, my child is so independent and strong willed. I'm sure those qualities will serve her well in life later on, but somtimes I find it challenging.

enjoying the leftover brownie batter from Daddy's birthday brownies
It is bugging me that I can't turn this picture the right way....but I have to accept it and move on. I have spent too much time on it already. But, this was during "naptime". After she dumped (and ate--see her mouth for evidence) the baby powder, she reached for a wipe to clean her mess.
Yes, she is a mess, but I love her dearly! Afterall, I was a mess first, many years before her!

Evi was oh, so happy to receive her very own set of hot wheels from Aunt Amy! She has been loving playing with all of her cousins' cars, so she was thrilled to have her own!
The pictures below are from her actual birthday once we were home. I felt bad about not having a party or cake again, so she at least got another cake (notice that it is decorated in the pan)! She helped decorate this one herself! Mother nature also gave her a gift for her birthday: A Blizzard! In Tennessee we had a tornado on her first birthday, her second birthday was normal, but a blizzard for her 3rd. Erin jokingly asked us not to be in Utah for her 5th, in case they'll have the earthquake that is so probable there!
