A quick update

Matthew and I are expecting another baby boy on April 16, 2016. The safest option for us is another c section so we will deliver him April 9:) Elianna will be 1 soon! Poor girl is sick right now and has a horrible rash :( I've barely gotten much done because she just wants to cuddle. We are in a new house in a new town finally!
Malachi is getting so big. We are getting ready to potty train! Any tips would be appreciated:)
How are all of you?

    I hope Elianna feels better soon, try breastmilk on the rash. Potty training is a fun battle but keep asking if they have to go or just do it every half hour to hour you'll notice the signs and they catch on. My daughter knows when she has to go but we still use pull ups during the day. I heard that sinking cheerios for boys is fun way to potty train them.

    Thank you momma! I didn't think about breast milk! I'll definitely be trying that today. :) ok, those sound like great ideas! He seems like he knows when he has to pee. But pooping is a different story! But I think he's ready. I'm excited. He hates diaper changes. He always fights me. We will definitely try Cheerios:)

    My daughter likes me to chase her with the pull up after she uses the potty, she says puppy run, lol, she's silly invented the game herself but its entertaining unless we have guest over so we had to practice when we can play and when its the pull up just straight back on the bum lol.

    Lol that's so silly! Love it. I love the little games they make up. Malachi likes this doll that Elianna has. He likes me to pretend she's real and make her talk to him & pretend to eat his hot wheels cars! Lol.

      We are doing well, just patiently awaiting the arrival of our little girl. :) I have a few more things to do and get (just another set of bottles and wipes) before she arrives.

      Oh, and we are in the process of potty training as well. I do not have any tips because my son is battling it but refuses to wear diapers. :/

      I'm glad you are well momma! So exciting, welcoming a baby girl! So happy for you! I'm glad to hear you're almost all ready for her!! I feel like we will be ready a lot sooner this time!
      Oh man, potty training is kind of scary to me! But I want to get him potty trained before our new baby arrives! Having 3 in diapers would be a lot. He always fights diaper changes. I hope you can get him potty trained soon. ❤️

      February 6th but they want to perform a Cesarean on the 2nd. She is transverse (sideways in me) so it is very painful and there is no way she is coming out any other way. I am scared my water will break before hand or I will go into labor and not make it to the hospital in time.

      Thank you, by the way. :)

      Aw yay! We are having our Hurd c section sometime between April 8-11. We decided that's the safest thing since I've had two ve toons already

      It is safer. I've wanted a vaginal birth, but my mom was talking to me and said it is safer, and having the doctor turn her will be extremely painful. Her mother gave her this advice as well. Either way, a birth is a birth, no matter how the baby comes out. :)

      Plus, I had to have a Cesarean with my son.

      She said it was safer to have a Cesarean I meant. :)

      Aw yea I wanted to try for a VBAC. But the risks are so high. So we decided on another c section. :)
      Yay, we can go through it together!
