Proud of Esme - she can sit on the big potty all by herself now without any help... she proved it to Daddy today and also to me several times after I came home. She has always cried out for me to hold her up there and she isn't quite tall enough to reach... but she found a way to do it by herself. Good girl!
To boot, she got into the freezer by herself (using a chair) and got herself her own lollipop as a treat earlier when I was at work. She told Daddy all about what she had done all on her own and what else she needed help with.
