Baby Pool & other stuff

Ok, every time someone in our family is expecting, we create a baby pool. So, I've decided to start the baby pool. My due date is July 24th, Samantha was 8 days early, was 20 1/2 inches long & weighed 8 lbs 11 oz. Nash was 5 days early, was 20 inches long & weighed 9 lbs 4 oz. Here are the rules: Pick a day, a time (specify am or pm), a weight, & a length. The person who is the closest to being right is who we call first! Get your guesses in & good luck!

We are working really hard to potty train Nash. Yesterday alone we went through 4 shorts & underwear! The bonus side to that is that most of the time when he had an accident he was on his way to the toilet (without me taking him) & didn't quite make it there in time. I've run out of pull ups & really don't want to buy any more. I do have night time diapers to put him in so I'm not changing his bed sheets everyday. Any suggestions you might have for improving this process would be GREATLY appreciated! I've heard about sinking the cereal in the toilet & he really doesn't stand up unless his dad is helping him. My dad wants to teach him how to go outside, but I can just see where that will get me!!

For those in warmer temperatures, it was nearly 80 here yesterday. It was SO nice to be outside and to wash my car. I even took the carpet cleaner to the inside of my car (in hopes of a better chance at selling it but without having to pay the $100 to get it detailed). Of course today, it's snowing. No, I'm not joking & I don't find it funny either! Only in Cache Valley will you find such a huge variance in weather in 2 days!

I went to my doctor's appointment today and everything looks and sounds good. My doctor was actually able to find the baby's heart beat the first time she looked. That's the first time that's happened! He's been quite shy & has hid from the doplar every appointment! Must take after his dad & not like doctors already. I go back May 6th & will have my glucose test done - that's always fun. I have started retaining water already though so I already know it's going to be a LONG summer!

Today Travis came home from work & told me he thinks he has kidney stones. Is it just me or does my insurance make serious bank off my family???? So, as of right now, he's in our room watching tv trying not to think about it! I told him I almost feel bad for him but since I've been through birth twice I really don't feel that bad! Guess that's kind of rotten, but I know he'd say the same thing if it was me!

Well, that's what we've been up to. Hope you're enjoying your day!
