Good news:
- Laurel made her first poop in the potty. I am very proud of her; she's watching a video starring that red lintball as reward.
- We discovered an effective comforting technique for Laurel -- stroking her cheeks with the end of one of my braids. It's tempting to keep my hair longer for that, but I think keeping my wash brush that she's fond of around will work as well.
- I got the February issue of Parenting in the mail to rocknashy today with a little Valentine's surprise in the envelope with it.

And of course, the bad news. Collin Fisher, a junior at EHS, died tonight in an MVA at 74 and Lewis Ridge; he was broadsided by a car traveling on the wrong side of the highway as he was swerving to avoid them. I am upset about this for a number of reasons but will save them for a post after things have calmed down.

I videotaped Asia's first poopoo in the potty.
Ammunition to show future boyfriends - eh.
Not really, the whole conversation etc. was just
too adorable to pass up. We came across the
videotape the other day. I like having that
memory on tape. She probably won't be too thrilled
with me when she's realized what I've done but she
should know by now I'm a nut.

That's awesome! I wish I'd had enough lighting to take a decent video clip with my camera when Laurel decided she wanted to look at the DVD drawer in the armoire -- she grabbed the handles on the side of the potty and just scooted on over.

I'm pretty sure Laurel knows her mommy is special. Last night at bedtime she tried to curl up under the computer desk instead of in bed or on her pillow nest. I fear I'm rubbing off. (:
