Please tell me that potty training isn't this messy

Since she pretty much does everything else all by herself (*sob) I decided to let Gillian try to feed herself with a spoon. She's almost 14 months old now, fairly well coordinated, and Daddy wasn't home to fuss if she did make a mess on the brand new carpet. So what the heck, I gave her the spoon and ducked for cover. She (and the dogs waiting joyously below the highchair) thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and I learned just how frickin far food could really fly. She actually got some on the ceiling..9 feet up! Now I just have to go find a ladder and clean it up before Daddy gets home....

House warming party! (Tentative Dates: July 12 or 13)
We've decided to throw a party to show off our new house and all the work we'll be putting into it. It's probably going to be from 2-9pm so people can come and go as they please, so I need some input on what day of the week it should be. There'll be food and pictures of the house as we bought it, as well as drinks and music in the evening (think anyone will actually dance?). I'll post before and after pictures here once we unveil our masterpiece to the public :) Keep in mind that this is our first house of our own to decorate, so if you don't like what we've done with the place just smile and nod, I can live with the lie!
