Our computer is fixed, so now I can re-join the blogging world! :) Our computer overall was working fine, but our microphone stopped working so we were unable to Skype. It turns out something came unhooked inside the computer.
Our lives are not slowing down one bit! It has been quite an exciting few days at our house! On Sunday, Jordyn all of a sudden decided that going potty on her little potty was the greatest thing in the world! Yay! She is doing great with potty-training, and she is so proud of herself. The daycare workers have also been awesome about working with her during the day - trying to ask/take her every 15-30 minutes. I just love the girls' teachers! We are so proud of Jordyn, and I am so excited to think that we might have just one in diapers for a few months before we're back to having two in diapers.
Jayla didn't want to be outdone by Jordyn on Sunday, so Jayla decided that she would focus on walking that day! She is doing great! She can take 3-8 steps at a time. Of course she is a little wobbly and still loves to crawl, but she is so close to being a walker! Yay!
One bit of disappointing news on Sunday .... our favorite TarHeels lost in basketball. After the game, Jordyn kept telling us that the TarHeels were sad. I think Mommy was a bit sad too.
We tried getting pictures in our TarHeels gear, but the girls weren't super cooperative to get one of the 3 of us ...
Jordyn just likes to be a little stinker in every picture we take of her. :)
Check out the lovely hair that Jordyn is sporting ... Ha!
And ... just a few other random updates ...
Jayla is still battling the nasty ear infection that has been going for about a month. The shots didn't help, and on Monday we were given the referral to the ENT (the same one as Jordyn has), and we will meet with him on Monday to discuss tubes. This poor girl needs some relief in her ears ... and her mommy and daddy need some relief through the night. She is not sleeping. She sleeps from about 7:30-10:00, and then she is up constantly through the night, screaming in pain. It's so sad. The doctor did give us an antibiotic again - hoping that it will at least provide some pain relief, but we know it won't take the infection away.
I had a doctor appointment yesterday. Baby #3 seems to be doing well. I have been in a panic a few times that I was having twins. Even though the first ultrasound showed only 1, I was still worried. (I have thought with each pregnancy I would have twins.) My dad has been teasing me constantly about it. :) However, the doctor is confident that there was one heartbeat yesterday, and I was measuring at 13 weeks, which is what I am. If I was pregnant with twins, I would have been measuring 17-18 weeks. My nurse and doctor were so wonderful to me yesterday. The nurse hugged me as soon as she saw me, and then I ran into the doctor in the hallway before my appointment, and she said she was so excited when she was looking through paperwork the night before and saw mine in there. She gave me a big hug too. It is nice to know that I have such caring people to take care of me!
I am still feeling good ... still running quite a bit, lifting weights, and biking. I know that will soon start to slow down, but since I still feel good, I am going to keep going.
I better sign off for now - it's getting close to 10:00, which means Jayla will be soon be up.
I have one last picture to share ... Jayla is such a climber ... and if I hadn't stopped her, she would have stood up on this little stool!
