Catching up

Zack went on the potty chair six times today. I think that is a new record. He has been doing really good, but we are far from throwing away the diapers. I would love to have him trained before the baby arrives, but I don't know if it will happen. It is also time to get serious about moving him into the big boy bed and into the other bedroom, so we can start working on the nursery for Addison. I think we have a game plan, but still need to buy the furniture. I am starting to feel huge, although people keep telling me on not very big compared to other pregnant women, which only makes me worry. I am shooting for at least a 6 pounder this time and no NICU. I go back to the doctor on Tuesday and will have the one hour glucose test and that yummy orange drink, bleck! I broke out the snoogle this week. I forgot how wonderful it is. We went grocery shopping last night and I was ready to die. Zack was a wild man running through Walmart and I did way too much bending over and carrying him. He looked like a contestant on Supermarket Sweep, running through the store pulling everything off the shelves and throwing it into the cart as fast as he could. No wonder we normally do small trips during lunch.

I'm just starting the third trimester. The first two went by extremely fast, so I hope this one does too. I had Ryan get down all the baby clothes from the attic and I went through them. I forgot how tiny the clothes are and how blue everything is. I found a few green sleepers and some white onesies, otherwise I have a lot of shopping ahead of me, which doesn't upset me too much really. I plan to go to the outlet mall in August and hit the back to school sales and probably buy everything pink in the Carter's store. I hate waiting till the last minute and I'm starting to freak.

Here is a picture of me from a week ago.

Here is the last of the vacation pictures that I never got around to posting. The morning after riding the rides at Indiana Beach my sister and her 2 year old, another friend with her 4 year old and 2 year old, and Zack and I went to the Indiana Beach Campground's new water play area . It had three small water slides, sprinklers spraying water everywhere, and a big bucket that dumps water when it fills up. All four of the kids were scared and wanted nothing to do with the play area. I eventually got Zack to let me take him down the smallest water slide and he absolutely loved it. As soon as we finished he would say, Again, and we went down again. We went down all three slides multiple times and he loved it. He didn't even mind the big bucket of water falling on him, although I tried to cover him with my body. Unfortunately the other three kids never warmed up to the water park, maybe next year. The best part - it only costs $5/person and under 36 inches is free! Nothing at The Beach is that cheap. I couldn't believe it. I think we'll be spending a lot of time there in the coming years.

These are from last Thursday. Ryan had the hose out for whatever reason and Zack got a hold of it and ended up soaked. I figured, since he was already wet and it was a nice night that it would be a good time to wash the car. As you can see from the pictures, Zack was a HUGE help!

Oh my gosh, what are your potty secrets!!! I really need to get going on that - it's a lot of work changing diapers when you have two kids wearing them! Way to go Zack!

I remember going through Cameron's baby clothes thinking the same thing. There's so much blue so I was so excited to head out and buy baby girl clothes. You are going to have FUN!!!!!

I wish we had a waterpark that cheap over here. You look GREAT, by the way!!!!

I am right there with you on the potty thing. Devin will go on it fine and as much as we want him to..but we are VERY far from giving up the diapers!

I am cracking up at Zack being like a contestant on Supermarket Sweep.

That waterpark looks so fun! Devin loves waterparks and slides too!

You look great!!!
