Can You Feel the Love Tonight

...well last night. We had a super fun V-Day. First the boys and I surprised Reed for lunch. We went to Olive Garden, during naptime, which was a bit of a gamble, but fun anyway. Then I got my popcorn Valentine from Reed delivered by a delivery truck, which was very exciting for Kason. And then Kason and I made Valentines while Reed and Harley made a delicious gourmet Valentines dinner. I am so lucky to have 3 such handsome Valentines! What a fun and love filled day!

Read All About It!

We have some big news to share: We are expecting baby number three! We have been waiting until our ultra sound (which was yesterday) so that we had a better idea of the due date. According to the ultra sound technician, I was exactly 10 weeks along yesterday. Which puts the due date at September 5.

Here are a couple a pictures of our deformed little gummy bear (we are optamitic that it will turn out to be a beautiful, healthy baby, but for now it looks more like a deformed little gummy bear. Just about that size too). We will know if it is a boy or a girl in about 8 weeks. We are hoping for a girl, but obviously we will be happy with whatever the Lord has decided to send us. When I went for my first doctor's appointment she said she wouldn't be surprised if I was as far along as 10 or 12 weeks (and that was two weeks ago), so it was a little disappointing to only be 10 weeks, but we are coming to terms with it. Kason is excited for his new baby and we keep trying to ask Harley if he remembers who was coming next, but he isn't sharing what he knows. We are very excited for our new addition (even if it means being pregnant during the hottest and most humid part of the year).

Everybody Poops

Everybody but kason, on the toilet anyway. We have started potty training with Kason and we haven't conquered poop yet (i have thrown away more than one little pair of Buzz Lightyear undies). All in all it has been somewhat successful. We started a week ago with a timer. I set the timer for 15 minutes and then he goes and sits on the potty and tries to pee. If he does he gets a skittle. If he poops he gets two. We have worked up to 30 minutes now, but he still does not tell me when he had to go, I tell him. Until he makes that jump I don't consider him potty trained, even if he can wear underwear all day with no accidents. It does feel like we spurned a lot of time in the bathroom. Its becoming tricky to number one keep Kason excited about using thee potty and number two keep Harley entertained while Kason is working on...whatever. We have tried many things including: putting Harley in the empty tub with his bath toys, a space heater in the bathroom (very exciting to both Harley and Kason), potting Harley in the drawer by the potty so Kason can pretend to give him a bath, singing songs, reading books, putting the potty in places more interesting than the bathroom, cool push/ride toys allowed in the bathroom, etc. Is all very hard work for all of us. Any suggestions on potty training are welcome.
