I forgot to mention how well Maureen is doing going to the potty - light years better than Josephine ever did! I think it's our approach and the fact that we waited until Maureen was a little older before even trying. She's not in panties, yet, but I just let her go on the potty whenever she thinks about it, or if Josephine or I ask her if she wants to try and she says yes. She goes #1 anywhere between 1-3 times per day - and we still do the "pee pee on the potty" song and dance plus she gets a piece of candy. She gets so excited every time!

Here's a video of Josephine playing most of the songs she knows on the piano. She also plays "Mary had a little Lamb" and "Jingle Bells" but I didn't want to make the video too long or it wouldn't upload onto the internet/blog. Her memory is so good - she memorized the "Itsy Bitsy spider" after one day of practicing it. Maureen will be good at the piano, too, one day - she sings very well and has good rhythm for being 2. She knows high sounds and low sounds on the piano and is learning to tell the difference between the two black keys and three black keys.

Oh, and Michael asked Josephine what she wanted to be when she grows up, and she said "an artist and an astronaut!" Good answer, I guess!
