Things that have been sucking up my attention:
|The kids helping daddy build and hang a bat house by the garden|
-Potty training Katie, which is going surprisingly well. She does very well if we take her potty every forty minutes or so, but doesn't yet consistently tell us she needs to go. I'm hoping if she has enough success for long enough with our encouragement, that pretty soon it will just be habit. Maybe?
-Cody's new work schedule and position. I suppose it really is taking up more of his time, but I have been relying on him so much that when there's a slight change in our schedule it kind of throws me for a loop.
-My own weak body. Far too often I forget that the reason why I feel miserable is because I'm growing another beautiful human being inside me and that I should be happy, or at least content, with the aches and pains and headaches and food aversions because it's to be expected. But usually I'm not content, just grumpy and focus on my pain and discomfort now instead of what the future is going to bring. Yep, gotta work on that one some more...
-And all those little things that seem to come up all day every day and are so important at the time but a few days later you've completely forgotten about them.
But, like I said, it's going fast and here we are at just about the halfway point of this pregnancy. Yesterday we had our big ultrasound. Cody's always wanted to have a baby where we didn't find out the gender until it was born, but I'm far too much of a worry wart to do that. This time, Cody came up with the idea of having the Ultrasound Tech write down the gender and seal it in an envelope, and then we'd make some kind of a party out of revealing what it said. I figured this was a pretty good compromise, so we asked my sister Sara to make a cake that is either pink or blue inside and when we cut it open, we will find out if we are having a boy or a girl.
