>I have been a bad bad blogger. Partly because life has been so hectic lately, and partly because I am spending a lot of time on all things political. I know that most of my readership disagrees with me politically, so I am keeping my trap shut for now. 🙂
Potty training is still going on…the kid won’t poop on the potty chair to save her life. I am thinking about just calling the whole thing off for now, she will eventually get there and I am beginning to believe the potty pressure is causing some of her behavior issues lately, the kid is frustrated and so are we! We have a sticker chart and we all clap and cheer every time she goes, but it doesn’t seem to be enough…I really think it is a control issue because she has been staying dry at daycare, she just loves to punish the ones that love her most.
On the baby front, things are going well. I have only had a net gain of one pound, and at 18 weeks along, I will take that! I am feeling the baby move, which is neat, but I feel guilty to say that I still don’t feel all that connected to this little one. That may make me seem like a bad mother, and maybe I am, but I try to be honest with myself here. I know I will get there(I assume?), but for some reason, I just haven’t fully accepted that I am having another baby. I have another appointment on Monday where we will be scheduling my ultrasound for somewhere around the 20 week mark…I will be 19 weeks on Monday so I will assume sometime in the week or two following that appointment we will get to have a peak of our little on. You can count on my posting pictures, but don’t expect to see the gender, we will be telling the tech not to show/tell us so we can have a the surprise unveiled at the birth.
I do have some pictures to post from when we went to Cedar Falls to visit Dani on family weekend at UNI…I will try to get them up tonight.
