Aaand we're back.

Thanks for sticking with me through this last unexpected hiatus.  As tends to happen, when we get busy, we get really busy.  The quick updates are:
  • The house is prepped and ready for sale.  All we need is a buyer.
  • We're expecting a job offer in the next 6 weeks that will hopefully lead to a move to Florida in the next year.
  • We're all formula now, so hopefully all my efforts to lose the baby weight will have some effect.
  • C is off the apnea monitor and growing like a full-term baby.  He's meeting all his milestones, and he loves talking and smiling with people.
  • D is going through potty-training.  He's doing well, more on that later.
I guess those are the big ones.  It seems like such a small list when compared to how much effort has gone into those five bullet points over the last couple of months.  It's been super busy, but we're settling into life with two kids faster than expected.

So we've been potty-training D for about a week and a half.  He wears undies all day and a diaper for his nap and nighttime.  At first we had some accidents, but he's pretty good now about holding it until he can get to a potty.  He's really nervous about using public toilets, but who isn't, right?  He's also nervous about pooping outside his diaper.  The day before yesterday, he sat on his toddler potty and proceeded to poop into his undies.  Then, he carefully took them off, and carried the undies, poop and all, into the bathroom to dump it into the toilet.  He was super proud of himself.  We'll be working on the pooping outside the undies skill. 

Wanna see my cute happy baby?  Oh, good.
