Potty Training Days

Monday was Day 1 of ROUND 2 with potty training Kurtis and I would have to say it was has been a complete success!!!! YEAH!!!!!
I spent the majority of the morning in the bathroom with him which wasn't fun but thanks to my mom I didn't have to take care of annalyn so it was just Kurtis & I & the toilet :) I decided to go cold turkey this time straight to underwear (no nakedness or diaper because I don't want him to get used to being naked & the diaper was a crutch for him) he loves the underwear & after me helping him and urging him to go the first 3 or 4 times he started going in the bathroom himself to go (around noon) which made me literally cry I was so happy :) The rest of the day he went in on his own took off his undies, peed, wiped (? not sure why), flushed & had me help him wash hands. It was great! I even took a chance and put him down for his nap with just undies on and he made it!! 2 1/2 hours got up dry then I took him to the toilet he peed & I gave him a treat :) I did put a pull-up on him for bedtime because Blake wanted to but I am telling you if he wouldn't of cared I would have taken a chance on that too. The next day was a total success so last night he was begging to wear his undies to bed so we thought what the heck lets try it & he woke up this morning dry!
Speaking of Luck Annie has gone a full week with sleeping through the night. We feed her between 9 & 10 then put her down an hour after she eats & she sleeps till 6 or 7 we go in put the Binky in her mouth or bring her into our bed she falls back asleep and then I feed her at 9. I am thanking heavenly father everyday for that because I am so grateful & hope that it keeps up. :)

Birthdays, Babies & More!!!

So things have gotten to a new normal around here...I am just now realizing that the "normal" I was waiting for will never happen again because I now have 2 kids and not 1....anyway I have been dying to share that Annalyn (drum roll) slept through the night last night. I woke up this morning at 7:30 & felt totally rested & thought to myself now that weird & then light bulb...annie is still sleeping! It was an amazing feeling that lasted all of 30 seconds until the next feeling came - is she still breathing - why I had to ruin the moment with that I don't know. Obviously she was or I wouldn't be posting...but I am sure some of you know what I am talking about. So the moment of truth will come tomorrow morning if she decides to sleep 9 hours again.
I have been a slacker & really wanted to post some pics of Kurtis & how adorable he was at his birthday so I thought I'd sneak 1 in now. Blake made him mickey mouse pancakes on his actual birthday & put candles in them...he loved it and was so excited that it was his birthday! He LOVES candles & blowing them out so we had to relight them about 5 or 6 times and sing each time. At least he is no longer afraid of the birthday song.
Annie is getting so big & can now smile YAH! Whenever she is asleep on me Kurtis wants to join in so I frequently will have them both on me asleep. I love those moments. I actually had one today :)
I got another nephew this last weekend! Jenny had her baby, Kannin, & we are so excited! He is so tiny & has SOOOO much hair. We are so happy for her! It has been great to have her living close again. I am soooo looking forward to this weekend - VALENTINES - I can't wait to go out with my hubby on a Date with no children! Hope you all have a great Valentines!
