This will just be an update on our family.
Jeremy: Potty training is slow, but he gets braver and better each day. Today he became nature child when I taught him how to pee outside in the grass. He did great. You men will be proud of him. He was playing in the water w/his sister and instead of tracking dirt, sand, and grass all through the house to use the potty I just stripped him down and told him to pee. He was thrilled! LOL! Today is the first day he’s done #2 on the potty w/out getting upset. He did it all by himself and I am thrilled. Swimming lessons are going great too. So good that he gets mad when it’s time to leave. He’s a genius and a fish. Amazing. Someone call Ripley’s.
Brianna: She is so grown up. She has her whole list ready for the big birthday #4. She wants a “real” bike, Spiderman stuff, Little Einstein stuff, Mr. Potato Head, and wind-up bugs (if anyone knows where the heck to buy wind-up bugs, I’m all ears — she saw it on Max & Ruby, a cartoon). She told me, “no clothes mom”. The girl is just like me — very sure of what she wants and bold about it too. She’s a doll and despite the daily dose of drama she’s an excellent big sister and little mini me. She has been practicing her writing skills, painting skills (a regular Picasso), and getting herself dressed (and she doesn’t do too bad).
Rich: The man works his butt off. The end.
Me: I am a busy mom, but I truly do love my job. I submit that it’s the best on the planet!! I am feeling the newest little addition kick/move more and more. I was tempted in the middle of the night last night to just lie there enjoying its movement instead of sleeping. I came to my senses and fell asleep though. Good decision on my part. This week has been insane so I need my rest. We have picked names. Rich initiated that conversation last night b/c I decided I don’t like the first boy & girl names we had picked initially. I don’t usually change my mind, but I just wasn’t feeling it at all. I gotta really like it if I’m gonna make my child live with it their whole life. We have decided on a girl’s name and now the boy’s name is up in the air. There are two in the running, but one might be controversial within our circle of peeps so until I get the all clear we remain uncertain. Name association… some might have a hard time with it so I try to be sensitive.
So what do you think about Sara Lyn Reed for a girl? I love it so if you don’t like it lie to me :)!!
Boy’s name to be revealed later.
And we don’t find out gender until the birth. So this will be a long wait. Don’t hold your breath. LOL!!
Have a great Wednesday. I’m off to take a nap. I love my naps!!
