And no, a black fog hasn't taken over our living room :-P
So it looks like I"m going to have to bring out my other camera...bummer! The other camera is actually a very nice and "fancy" camera...but it's so big! I love my little point and shoot and want to be able to put my camera in my pocket and always have it with me. I don't like using a bigger camera, even if it does take nice pics LOL. Guess I'll have to deal until I come up with a reason why Lee should buy me another one! :-)
Since we have a serious lack of photos today I thought I'd do various "updates" that I've been meaning to do.
First, potty training...Raya is doing awesome! She basically has no accidents ever anymore. She wears underwear all day long and I never have to remind her to go. Even though I put pull ups on her when we go out in public, she still remembers to use the potty and only has an accident if we're driving, etc. and she asks to go and I don't want to pull over haha. Sometimes a diaper is just easier :-P However, she WILL NOT poop on the potty. Oh well...at least she's been timing her poop so that it's in her diaper at night lol
Second, nursing. Brielle is *almost* weaned. I don't know if other moms just like to dramatize the whole weaning thing, or if my girls are weird, but niether Raya nor Brielle ever cared when I started switching them to formula. They both seem to have the attitude that they just want food and as long as I feed them something they are happy! Brielle still nurses once at night and then every once in awhile she nurses once during the day if I feel like it. I'm just letting nature take it's course at this point and when there is no more milk she'll be done I guess :-)
Third, sleeping through the night. Well, I've made the initial steps with Brielle. For the last 3 or 4 days I've been laying her in the crib for all naps, and she usually cries for maybe 5 minutes until she falls asleep. She still only takes short cat naps, but at least she's in her crib. The only problem I'm finding is that during the crying at the beginning she tends to roll over and get herself stuck and cornered in her little crib, etc. and really pisses herself off and sometimes leaves red marks on her head! So then I go and move her, which draws out the crying because I went in there. But even with her breatheable bumper she is still getting stuck some times! She really needs to move to Raya's big crib so she has more room, but we don't want to move Raya to a big girl bed until we move....vicious cycle. At night then Brielle is going in her crib for the first part of the night, but then when she wakes up I sitll bring her to bed. I'm so torn on how to break her of that b/c if I do cry it out then she wakes up everyone else and Raya and Lee are grumpy. Maybe they'd get used to it eventually, but it'd just suck for everyone involved at the beginning. Still thinking about how to best go about that...
Fourth, the house update. We don't know any more really. The realtor is supposed to follow up with the people who did a second showing last Saturday...hopefully we hear something soon. He said the previous people who were trying to get financing are still "trying" and he suspects they are dragging their feet a little. They haven't bought anything else, but in general we seem to have a problem with everyone who likes are house just not being in any big hurry to buy. I mean good lord, are we the only ones on the face of the planet who actually *need* to move?! So anyways, no real news there.
That's about alll for today...I'll try to get some pictures up and running again for tomorrow :-)
