Talmage is 2!

Yesterday, my baby turned 2! I can't believe how fast he's growing up. He's such a big boy now. We are so lucky to have Talmage in our family. He has such a sweet spirit. I love how loving he is and how willing he is to give hugs and kisses. I feel privileged to be his mother. He makes us so happy! I love to play with him and see him get so excited about little things. He always senses when I am sad or unhappy and he gives hugs. I don't know how I would get through some days without Talmage. I love my boy so much and I just hope he doesn't grow up too fast. He'll always be my baby no matter what. I feel so lucky to have him to myself everyday and watch him learn and grow. I'm so glad our little girl is coming in December and no sooner so I could have this special time with Talmage. Although many times I prayed for another baby to come sooner, I wouldn't have it any other way. I'll always remember these precious moments with my little boy. I love you Talmage so so much! Thanks for letting me be your mommy!

P.S. I'll post pictures from his birthday soon! We had so much fun!!

Potty Training

I started officially, officially potty training Talmage on Wednesday. Today is day 3 of underwear. No diapers!! (except at naptime and bedtime unfortunately) We took away the diapers and went straight to underwear. We didn't want to bother with pull-ups. Afterall, there is hardly any difference between pull-ups and diapers. I wanted something totally different. Talmage loves his underwear and he looks so cute and grown up in them. The first day of wearing underwear he had an accident in the morning which was partly my fault. I wasn't watching the clock! Then later that night, he came running to me and pointed to some urine that was running down his leg. We rushed to the toilet and he went A LOT! So I guess that's only half an accident. Yesterday was his second day and he only 1 accident, late at night. Jacob's whole family is in town for his nieces wedding (which was yesterday) so he was busy playing with cousins. We were gone all day and only 1 accident! I am so proud of him! He also woke up completely dry from his 3 hour nap yesterday. Yay!! Potty training is getting better and better. He's able to hold it for longer and doesn't even need a reward afterwards. We ran a bunch of errands this morning and so far...no accidents! We have a bunch of family stuff going all weekend long so we'll see how it goes.

Belly Photo

Finally..I took a picture of my growing belly. A lot of people have told me that my belly looks really small but the baby is measuring right on track as well as the size of my uterus. I guess it's better than people telling me I'm huge! As of right now, I've gained 10 lbs so I'm pretty happy about that! My goal is 25 lbs instead of 50 lbs like last time!

20 weeks 5 days ( w/baby girl!)

20 weeks 5 days (w/ Talmage)

I think my tummy was a little bigger with Talmage.
