Little Mae Mae had her 15 month doctor appointment yesterday and it went well!  She is a hoss!  23 pounds, in the 90th percentile for height and weight.  She's doing just great and we're obviously very thankful!  She is a funny happy wonderful delightful baby - she loves to hug, loves to kiss, and be kissed, and loves to laugh.  However, she does have a temper.  She very quickly will let you know when she's mad or sad or angry.  Gone are the days of big sister taking a toy from her and her being quiet about it. Today she threw a book at Libby and then flung herself on the ground and screamed and kicked her feet. Oh boy oh boy....we have a lot of fun in our future with these two monkey girls.  She has a sweet little disposition and it's SO MUCH fun to see her blossoming into a little girl.  I miss the baby stage, uh oh I totally will have baby fever - and soon, I'm afraid.  She is just so big acting.  She is really into coloring and doing anything that Libby does.  We start Mommy and Me swim classes next week and I'm really looking forward to doing that with her.  We went to the splash park today with some friends and Margaret absolutely loved it.  She is a tough little girl - and very loud.  She shows no fear, just loves to jump right in and do things.  Incredibly independent, and kind of just does her own thing.  But she still loves her Mama and Daddy - and at the end of the day, she's always gonna be our baby girl.  They both are, regardless of how much they are growing up so fast right before our eyes.  Climbing trees together, swinging together, see sawing together, and today Libby said to me, "mommy, mae mae is really getting big, she is almost talking to me and I love to play with her" - and ummmm yes, that is music to this mama's ears!!  It seriously doesn't get any better than that, don't you agree?  Little M is also trying to potty train.....Libby is 100% potty trained (GO LIBBY LOU!!!) and every time she goes, Mae Mae wants to.  So, we put her on the potty and she sits there, and tries it, but so far, it's just sitting there.  We'll see how this progresses.  My friend told me that in Korea where she is from, babies potty train at 12 months, and breastfeed til 24 months.  So, maybe we have it all backwards here!!!  Yes, I am still nursing Margaret.  I know, I know, it's time to wean (some may say) - I'm thinking that maybe she'll tire of it and I won't have to??

All in all, my big 15 month old and 37 month old girls are doing just fine.  We are busy busy and enjoying these last few weeks of summer.  Not ready for the cold but we definitely have a lot of fun things coming up in the fall.  A trip to Vermont with Matt & the girls and my sweet Mom in law, my awesome sister in law and her hubs (who just happen to be some of our besties!!) and their monkey for Labor Day, a wedding on SSI in september, wedding first week of October in Atlanta, then my baby brother Garrison is getting married to an amazing girl, Lindsey, the next weekend (SOOOO EXCITED!!), then a trip to in-why-see for the Marathon, then Disney world, Thanksgiving, then Lake Oconee, then Christmas will totally be here before we know it.   Life is good and my family keeps me laughing and smiling!
