I'm never sure what to write when I update these things. I always get this feeling like "why would anyone want to read this?". But whateva.

We're working on potty training with Anicka. *sigh* There are good days, and then there are really really bad days. But I think the worst of the bad days are behind us. She's really doing pretty well now. We got her some pull ups (expensive!) and put up a sticker reward poster, and she's excited about it. So. Yes. I can't believe she's going to be three years old next month. It's.. crazy.

As for the pregnancy, I'm at 20 weeks now (half way!) and I have an appointment with my doctor today. Adam is finally able to go with me this time, and he's excited to finally hear the heartbeat. And today we'll be able to set an appointment for an ultrasound, yay! I can't wait to find out what we're having. Everyone keeps asking me whether I'm going to wait until the birth, so that it'll be more of a surprise. Um... no? The suspense would kill me. I have to know now!

also: I don't think Anicka believes me when I tell her there's a baby in my belly. She seems to think it's some kind of game. "Yeah, there's a baby in my belly too, mom! And... oh, look! There's a baby in daddy's belly!" Seriously, she thinks I'm just messing with her. I read some articles about preparing the older sibling for a new baby, but they were pretty much no help. Maybe taking her to the doctor's office with me will help...

In other news: I cut all of my hair off a couple of weeks ago. I'll put pictures up here some time for those of you who want to see it.

And because I like sticking random pictures up here:

Here's Anicka wearing Daddy's goggles, which was the only way I could get her in the bath for a while.

And Anicka walking home with her Aunt Sienna after playing at the park.

The end.

I like to hear all your stories and stuff! It makes me happy :)
BTW Cole and I are going to St. George next week, you free anytime?
I can't wait to hear what you are having!! I can't believe you're already 20 weeks!

P.s. I am scared to death for potty training time! Remember all your tips so you can give them to me when I need them.
