Being the Genius That I Am

After my shower this morning I put my glasses on and noticed they were very blurry. Must need to be cleaned. So I took them off and finished getting ready. I went downstairs and cleaned them thoroughly. Put them back on and they were still really blurry! Oh no! Maybe they are scra....oh I put my contacts in this morning. Never mind! Can I blame this on being pregnant?

Two Big Things

Mr. Biscuit is now officially a big boy. He has his own special big boy bed and he is potty trained. Hallelujah! Everyone always says boys are difficult to potty train. Not the case! Last Monday I put him in underwear and told him he needed to pee on the potty. He had three accidents the first day and none since. He will not use the small potty and insists on the big toilet with no little seat insert. This is after we special ordered a pee deflector for the potty chair. Thank heavens it was only $2. He has been dry at night and nap time. I feel this is all too good to be true. I keep waiting for him to decide he doesn't want to do this after all. The past 2-3 days we have even let him wait to tell us when he needs to go with very little prompting from us. So far so good! I am in shock! He looks so cute in his big boy underwear. At least, our diaper budget is gone until February!
His bed is going quite well. He loves it and calls it "boy". He seems to be sleeping a bit better. Averaging once a night getting up. He knocks on his door in the morning to let us know he is up. (We have a thing on his doorknob that he usually can't open by himself.)

Big Boy

Last week Mr. Biscuit was switched to a big boy bed. I can't believe that time has come already. So far, he seems to be doing well. We sit in his room til he falls asleep. This typically takes less than 10 minutes. Unless of course I fall asleep also. Not that that ever happens. Ha ha! He actually slept through the night last night. Now if only I could sleep through the night! We were so incredibly blessed to have two great sleepers first. I am praying baby bean will be a great sleeper as well. I haven't taken a picture of him in his bed yet. Maybe tonight if I remember.

Baby Bean

Baby bean is growing quite nicely. I am measuring a few weeks ahead. No big deal. The baby has probably had a growth spurt. I seem to do this each pregnancy. If only that meant the baby would come closer to my due date. Ha ha. A girl can dream. The heart rate was still around 140-160. Old wives' tale says it is a girl. How I feel and how I am carrying says boy. I am pretty sure it will be a baby. It is fun to not know the sex. All of you planners our there I heard you sighing heavily and shaking your head! We see the midwife again at 29 weeks. (first week of December)

My husband is awesome! He is priming my front door. I have been waiting on this project to be done for a Long Time. For the past few years it looked like a peely mess. It already looks so much better. I so appreciate the hard work my husband has put into this project. It really means a lot to me that because it is important to me, it is important to him. He detests this project. And then, if that wasn't awesome enough he cleaned the kids' bathroom and our bathroom. And by clean I don't mean a quick swipe. He SCRUBBED every surface! I am so thankful for my husband!
