She did a stinky!!!!

To some of you this means absolutely others, you know our excitement. We have been at this potty training thing for exactly 2 weeks and it has been a very interesting experience to say the least. We ask constantly if Keatyn needs to go teetee and beg her to do her other business in the potty too. All she can say to that is "I NEED A DIAPER!" This is very frustrating when you want your little one out of diapers. Anyway, on to my real story...This weekend I hear from the bathroom in a sweet little voice "Mommy, I went poopoo!". My response was (under my breath) "yeah, right". Much to my surprise, poopoo she did. We were so excited that I think it sent her into shock. The look on her little face was not one of being convinced she could do this again, but that of, what just happened. So now instead of it being just the "teetee bucket", we now have the "teetee/poopoo bucket" filled with prizes for each little occasion! So we look at each day as a new day and hope for the best. She's doing great!

8 weeks and counting...

Well, to those of you who are serious bloggers...I apologize for the delay in posts. My computer is highly tempermental and thus the lack of the blog!!!!

Monday was my first real doctors appointments. We had our first sonogram and the little "nugget" is just precious. (When I find a place to scan in pics, I'll post them.) The heart rate was an amazing 165. I asked the nurse if she thought it was a girl...she just laughed and said they are all usually high this early. Stephen is still convinced it is going to a boy.

Our official due date is April 26th. I am going to ask my doctor if she will be willing to schedule my C-section for April 16th. I'll elaborate on the significance of that date in a later entry.

As for me and the actual day to day pregnancy...well, I am still experiencing the nausea and the headaches. I can still go to bed at 6 or 7pm and sleep until 6 am with no problem and my eating is not getting better. However, I have figured out that I only really feel sick in the evenings, which is good for me since I am working, but bad for Stephen and Keatyn. Stephen has been absolutely amazing with me and with Keatyn. He was already doing most of the daily stuff before we got pregnant, but he's even stepped it up about 10 times. Bottom line...he is AMAZING!

And the most important thing about this pregnancy is that my doctor said that everything looked great and that things seem to be progressing beautifully...I'll take all the you know what for a healthy, beautiful baby!

And the Journey Begins!!!!

Well, about 4 weeks ago, the Bills discovered that we were going to be adding to our family of three. Keatyn seems to think the idea is "ok"! She is convinced that it will be a baby sister and Stephen is secretly hoping for a boy. As for me...I'm just grabbing hold and embracing a pregnancy that is all to foreign. There is nothing familiar about this one. I am having to learn what things keep me from feeling sick and for the first time in my life, I have to make myself eat. (Why couldn't I have embraced that idea during the two years I was trying to lose baby weight?!) Anyway, we are absolutely thrilled that we are expecting and look forward to the changes ahead. Not to mention the growth. I have my first 'real' doctors appointment on Monday.
