Yes we have progress in the potty training!!!! I'm so excited! Shawn is now recognizing when he needs to go. He is still having a hard time getting to the potty on time but he is at least recognizing when he needs to go. He is even going poop in the potty as well! It's so fun to see how excited he gets over going to the potty. He is so funny. Every morning when he wakes up and I go in his room to get him the first thing he says to me is "potty." If I ask for a hug I get a "No. Potty" and he proceeds to make his way to the bathroom.

William can now roll to his left or right side when rolling over onto his back and is very close to rolling over from his back to his tummy. He can pick up toys and switch it between his hands as well. He is getting even closer to sitting up on his own and is lifting himself up with his arms while in tummy time and he pulls his knees up underneath him, not at the same time but he will pull his knees up and then switch and lift the front of his body up with his arms. When Shawn started that he was crawling with in a month. We have William's 4 month appointment on Thursday so we will find out how much he has grown then.

I can't believe how fast time has gone. Shawn's 2nd birthday is in a little under 3 weeks and a month later Shem and I will be celebrating our 3rd anniversary.

One year ago today...

We found out we were pregnant again. A little sooner than we had first initially planned but it was exciting none the less. It was my first month off birth control so we weren't expecting anything. In fact we were planning on it taking 2-3 months. lol. I decided to test that day because on the 18th we were heading to Idaho for a family reunion and I was supposed to start my period anytime around the 18th. I felt a little off on The 17th when I woke up so I decided to test just in case so I knew if I needed to prepare for other things if I wasn't pregnant. So I take the test, expecting it to say "not pregnant" and with in a minute it was positive. I was in shock! It was not really expected at all. I then proceeded to think of ways to tell Shem that we were once again pregnant. It was the week before father's day so I wrote on the mirror, "Happy early father's day! I have a present for you!" I then had an arrow pointing down at the positive test. He was excited too, though speechless for a few minutes. It's hard to believe that it's been a year sense then. But the proof is here in my lap. A now nearly 4 month old little boy.

Yep that's right, we now have a boy that has figured out how to roll from tummy to back. I had him on his little play mat on tummy time for about 10 seconds before he decided he was finished with tummy time and rolled over. He was so proud of himself too. He was wiggling and smiling until he found a toy to play with. 3 months old and now has figured out rolling.
