I wanted to write a couple of things down before I forget....
Today was the first day I didn't nurse Anna at all...It's probably harder on me than on her...I just hope she sleeps through the night...we shall see.
Also, as of this past sunday she has been taking about a dozen steps at a time...she still prefers to scoot and one-leg crawl sometimes...but she's gaining more and more confidence every day with her walking. She also goes up and down the stairs quite fast!
When I was putting Jacob down for the night I asked him if he wanted to pray...fully expecting him to say no, I was a little surprised when he said he would. He said one of the sweetest prayers...
He prayed so he wouldn't be scared of the wind and the rain outside (he wakes up crying b/c of this sometimes). He also prayed that he wouldn't be scared of the cars outside, or the trucks, or the jeeps, or the sounds outside. He prayed for Anna so she could play with him and be happy. He said:
'please bless Bapa and Jon so they can be safe...(a little pause) for me" :)
He prayed for his dad and mom, and he prayed so he could be happy. He prayed so he could play baseball, and hockey...in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. What a big boy he's turning out to be! I'm so proud of him and Anna :)
Today's day 3 of his potty training too, he started off awesome...today was a little rough b/c he just didn't have the motivation to go potty every hour like we have been the last couple of days. He would say he didn't need to go, refuse to go, then have a pee (and once a poop) accident :( He fully peed downstairs once too :( It's been a little discouraging, but tonight Randy had a brilliant idea (as always). He suggested I give him a treat after he went, so he could be more motivated...and of course it worked! He is still sleeping in pullups, so once I run out of those I'll be losing sleep I guess. He's also still in his crib so I've been pretty spoiled as far as them sleeping through the night.
We'll see how tomorrow goes...
Randy goes camping w/ the young men tomorrow and comes back on saturday...we sure are going to miss him!
I better go get my P90X on or I'll be too tired to exercise! (I know I should probably be exercising in the morning...but nights just work out better for me, I'm just NOT a morning person)...
A fun new Hobby!
