Big News!

                               We have big news!  DANILYN IS POTTY TRAINED!
 (Oh, and I am pregnant too with number three, due May 2nd which puts me at 12 weeks.)

Here are some birthday pics from Dani's little party.  We also had fun at our church's chili cook off and trunk or treat party last night.  We didn't get photos of us dressed up though, big boo!  Matt wore a Lorax t-shirt and Dani, Carlee and I wore these fuzzy florecent wigs and called ourselves Truffula trees.  I got compliments on my creamy white chili and requests for the recipe but didn't win an award, not even for "most unique chili" c'mon judges!  It was good.  But really guys, nothing is good to me right now.  I so much hate this feeling of having to eat when it is the last thing on earth I want to do.  Ug.  I am so not a fan of being pregnant...but I am a fan of the results nine lonnnnng months later.  I am feeling so ugly.  My skin is so white, especially on my legs and I always have some  ugly bruise on my thighs from running into the corner of the stupid bed.  I have not been exercising in the least because I just simply feel  like shit crap all the time.  I think exercising would help if I could just DO IT some how.  I want to grow my hair really long but EVERY TIME  I get to the stage it is at now I just absolutely DESPISE it!!!  It is so thick  and impossible.  It looks SO BAD if I don't actually blow dry it and flat iron it, but that takes me FOREVER (and even then it does not look good).  I just hate it.  Washing it sucks, doing it sucks, looking at it sucks.  It is at the stage where I can't quite tuck my bangs behind my ears so I have to pull them back (usually a twist) and I shouldn't put it in a pony tail because it just looks ridiculous because it isn't long enough but I do it anyway.  What else am I suppose to do?  It isn't curly enough to put gel in and scrunch.  I have some cute hats but who want to wear a hat all day just to keep your hair out of your face if you are just at home with your kids, ya know?  Oh, blah.  I have back acne (backnie as they called it on "What to Expect When you are Expecting" although I do not know how they spell it?)  The zits from my back creep onto my face too (sorry if TMI).  By stomach is getting just enough growth that most of my pants won't button and my fitted shirts look bad on me.  It is like that in between stage that really bites.  Anywho, I'll stop ranting.  I am glad Dani has finally gotten the whole potty thing!  This was the 2nd real attempt and it has taken her about a week, three days of lots of pee pee accidents, but now she's got it...let's hope she keeps it!!!

 I am holding a picture of me when I was two.  Dani  looks a lot like me at that age, so fun!

   There are a lot more pictures but Matt hasn't developed them yet.  We also have some cute videos but they just won't upload.  Carlee was good about letting Dani do her thing  and have her special day but now she gets much more play time with the princess barbies than Dani does for sure.  Dani got these little mini Strawberry Short Cake dolls and all her fruity friends as her reward when she went on the potty and stayed dry and clean.  She was excited to get them but I tell you what, Carlee was even more excited for her and now has played with those little tiny plastic figures every day all day since Dani earned them.  Now when it is time to take Dani potty and she just doesn't want to, we just use gum balls to entice her.  Whatever works!  Holy cow, I haven't changed a poopy diaper for a whole week!  I only have 6 more months to enjoy that eh!      


Matt, Julee, Carlee and Danilyn said...

Well if you thought that was random you are not alone. Julee and has been putting up with a lot lately and I have been doing my best to take care of her. Hopfully the all day sickness will go away soon. Love you jewels!

Congratulations! I love seeing baby pictures of parents that look like their kids.

Congrats you guys on both fronts. Potty training and the wombling! I'm so sorry you haven't been feeling well, have you talked to your doctor about getting on vitamin B6 and unisom? Do it!

Elisa Stephenson said...

Congratulations for both things!!! You have me beat, Wesley is older than Danilyn and is not anywhere close to being potty trained. I hope you get feeling better soon. It sounds like you are miserable right now.

Congrats on #3 coming and I'm jealous of the potty training victory already! :) Your girls are SO cute. I think Dani looks just like you, Julee.

Congrats again are you wishing for a boy or girl? I personally love you with pixie cuts and if a good hair cut will make you feel better do it.
