Dr. Appointment

I had a doctor's appointment today, and she told me that I wouldn't make it to 40 weeks and that I should get any last minute things done THIS week. So, it looks like Claire could be joining us any day now:) I have been much more uncomfortable the last few months of this pregnancy than I was with Jude so an early delivery would definitely be welcoming:)

Nursery Pics

The nursery is pretty much all setup and ready. The crib isn't up yet because we wanted to leave the bed in there for when my parents come to help with the baby. She wont need the crib for a while anyways. I'm 36 weeks along and was 2cm dilated at my last visit. I'm hoping she'll come early. Of course, because I'm so eager for her to come she'll probably be late:)

Deck Roof

John put a roof over our deck. I love it! It feels like an extension of our house now instead of the backyard. I have my wicker set and a rug out there so it's like an outside living room.


I took some pictures of the Clematis plant that is growing up the lattice under our deck. It looks so pretty.

Jude loves the trampoline. We got a new one that is a bit smaller and has an enclosure. Jude loves to jump around on it, and I love that I don't have to worry about him falling off now:)

Potty Training

When I was at my parents over Easter, Jude showed some interest in using the potty. So Monday morning I decided to get the potty chair out and give it a shot. I let him go around the house naked from the waist down. By Tuesday he was completely potty trained........when naked:) I still struggled with getting him to stay dry with underwear. I don't think he understood the difference between underwear and diapers. So I've been keeping him naked all week to ensure that he gets the hang of going to the potty when he feels that sensation, and he went accident free all week. Today I tried putting underwear on him again. So far he has been staying dry and will go to the potty and pull them down when he has to go, so yay! that's encouraging. At this rate he should definitely be fully trained by the time Claire arrives. It will be nice to have only one in diapers. Oh yeah, and he also went poop in the potty for the first time today. It was kind of a disaster though. I wasn't even in the room when it happened so I'm not sure how he managed it, but when I came in there was poop smeared all over the seat with one poop on and one that had apparently rolled off and Jude was also sitting on the potty with a perplexed look on his face. He also had poop smeared all over his legs and bottom. I was still excited because he thought to go in the potty without any direction from me. We'll work on the logistics later:)
