Grace shares some of her strawberry carrot yogurt with Kate, a sign of kindly sisterly love or a sign that it wasn't as delectable as Grace had hoped.
A report from the trenches: when we flipped the calendar to July, we told Grace that there were no diapers in July, that she would just wear underpants to bed. She'd been dry at night for ages but reluctant to give up that last diaper. She agreed to the novelty the first night but on July 2 insisted that we were back to June. We disagreed and underpants it was. We are so proud that during the entire month of July there was only one early morning "concern" and even with our vacation travels and illness, etc. that was it -- she is officially done with toilet training. We've come such a long way from last July. The past year has been such a tough one trying to figure out what would work with her and as always, the answer was to give Grace time to figure it out on her own. This last nudge was really just a way to show her that she had.
