Good news!

We have lots to be thankful for! In December we were surprised - but thrilled - to find out that we were/are pregnant again! And for the last several weeks I've been oh so grateful to be plagued with "morning" (err... night) sickness! Though the nausea is so not fun, after having a miscarriage I'm so grateful to know that a healthy baby is growing inside me! (No, I didn't have nausea with the last one.)

I'm sure I will have more of a pregnancy update soon, but the iPhone is making me nauseous...

No pictures today! I just wanted to share our news!

Lil at 23 months!

Lil is almost 2!! Time certainly flies! For those of you who subscribe, you may get a 22 month post as well because apparently it's been sitting in drafts and was never posted.. oops! Here's a glimpse of Lil at 23 months.

Lil loves...
  • To play dress up! She wears a tutu and twirls around every chance she gets.
  • Lip gloss! She is kinda obsessed. I take partial responsibility because I sorta have a chapstick addiction. But this girl is out of control. I think I'm going to need to start hiding and locking up my lip gloss stash!
  • Wearing Mom's shoes. She's currently walking around in a pair of my black wedges as we speak. Pushing her baby doll stroller, of course. 
  • The movie Lady and the Tramp and Cinderella.

Lil has learned and is learning...
  • To talk up a storm! Okay she really already had that down, but she can have a full conversation with you. 
  • "Count." She can recite numbers - sometimes in the right order and sometimes not. And we are working on the concept of counting things - not counting something twice, etc. 
  • To share. Constantly learning this one.
  • As far as potty training goes, she has been doing awesome! We are going on 4 weeks, and going strong. She does have an accident every few days, as expected. But overall she's doing wonderful! Totally not as hard as I thought it would be.
  • The other day she blew me away. She turned to me and said, "He takes away our sins." I asked "who" she meant, and she said "Jesus." We talked about that for a few minutes and what that meant. I love seeing the things these kids pick up on! So much smarter than so many parents realize!
  • We still try to get her in bed around 7:30, but getting her to bed at this time is usually a battle. She would prefer 8ish I think. She normally wakes up around 7:30. 8 or after, if I'm lucky!
  • As far as napping, she usually goes down near 12:45 and sleeps 2-3 hours. 

Above are a few Christmas photos which I actually got from my sister-in-law. I'm awful at taking photos while traveling! And Blogger actually won't let me upload anymore photos anyway, so I am just taking ones that are on FB, etc. Anyone else have this issue? I don't really want to start paying to upload photos...
