B: why did Ruby loose her tooth?
M: You will loose your baby teeth and get new teeth.
Instant watering of Brynn's eyes.
Brent keeps teasing her, giving her the teeth over the gums look and she bursts into tears.
B: I don't want to loose my teeth!
Brynn: When you're mean you get dead.
Doesn't this tiny heiney look cute in panties??
Well it's here to stay!
We did it.
The dreaded Potty Training.
On one hand it is so nice to think about not having to buy diapers and wipes anymore....well at least not until number 3 comes along.
But on the other hand it is so convenient to not have to take your 2 year old to the bathroom.
5 times in a span of 3 minutes....or less, depending on the day.
Especially out in public. YUCK. Little hands that touch everything.
It is a lot of work at first, but I wanted Camdyn out of diapers before this baby comes along. So we took the plunge and stayed home for three days in a row, took away all diapers, made a big deal about big girl panties, and stocked up on M&Ms.
Who wouldn't go potty for M&Ms all day?
M&Ms before breakfast? Sure!
M&Ms even though you just brushed your teeth? You bet!!
Even Brynn is trying to cash in and asks for M&Ms after she goes to the bathroom.
Staying home for three days is a little difficult, especially because I pretty much have to stay right by her side when she is awake so I can catch any accidents.
Some pros about staying home for 3+ days straight (if you can make it that long before you go crazy):
- No money was spent. (I bet this is my husband's favorite part....he probably wants me to be a professional potty trainer so I could never go anywhere.)
- Caught up on my laundry.
- You don't have to shower or get dressed...if you don't want to!
- I laundered and put away all of the new baby's clothes (which was my 'June Project')! Guess I better find a new project.
- Detoxed from facebook since I had no time to myself.
- Spent some quality time with the girls, just playing.....although there were many times I felt like a referee always breaking up fights.
- Great excuse not to cook or clean....sorry honey, I was on potty patrol all day.
It's really been a battle of the wills the last few days. She is so independent, almost to a fault. And if she doesn't want to do anything, don't think there is any way in making her!!
I don't know where she gets it from..........
The good news:
I can leave my house again.
It is finished.
Went for my 28 week appointment and had my glucose test done as well. Not too worried about that as I usually pass with flying colors. I just couldn't have my usual breakfast at Mama Margies on the way to the doctor this am!
This little girl is already in big trouble as she is still breech. Of course Dr. Hedges says "oh don't worry"....but it's like I said in my last post... So anyways, I also measured small this time. For those of you that don't know, they measure your uterus and your measurements are suppose to correlate with the number of weeks you are. Last appointment I was 24 weeks and measured at 24 cm. Well this appointment I am 28 weeks and measured at 24, still. Gained 2 pounds, which is a grand total of 15. So I get to go back on Monday to have a sonogram to take a little peek and make sure Miss Naughty Pants is growing appropriately. Dr. Hedges isn't very worried and neither am I. I always measure small, so that is nothing new. Please pray that baby girl is growing, healthy, and that she'll flip. If I have to have a C-Section she will be grounded....indefinitely.
Still running, although I have cut back some. My legs just feel so heavy when I run....guess it's all this extra weight! My running partner is still running with me, she hasn't given up on me, yet. Our normal routine is 4 miles, three times a week (four days if I'm lucky) but I have cut back to 3 miles. So we run our 3 together and my RP keeps on going and I walk the last mile.
Two years ago we didn't know if our second child would be a boy or girl.
Two years ago I woke up in the middle of the night and thought I peed my pants!
Three short hours later we were blessed with another little girl, holding her in our arms.
She was perfectly created.
A perfect fit for our family.
We are so blessed to have you as our daughter Camdyn.
Happy 2nd Birthday to our sweet baby girl!!
Here's the little Mommy singing Rock a bye Baby to a remote (I was afraid if I took it away and gave her a doll she would stop!).
A few pictures I added taken the day after her birthday with the cake Mimi brought her....
Who needs a fork when you have fingers?!?
Did we do something fun??
Go on vacation??
Just stayed home and completed some home projects that we have been wanting to do.
Finally I got my door/mirror!! Only 9 months later...but hey, who's counting?!
