Potty Training

I didn't think potty training would be so stressful. Or at least it was at first. We have been trying for about 2 or 3 weeks and at first she would have accidents on the floor A LOT! Then she started dancing a little when she had to go so I would make her sit on the potty for a while till she went. She would go like 2 times in her potty then 2 times on the floor everyday. It was frustrating...then on Thursday a light bulb must of went on in her head cause she went and sat on the potty without me saying anything!! I was so excited and thought maybe I should just stop bugging her about it. That day she went 9 times in the potty, she didn't have any accidents, and I never had to force her to sit on the potty!!! I am so happy she is starting to get it cause a week ago I felt like there was no hope. There is a little problem though, she uses her little training potty and if we are out some where she wont go on the big potty's. I have to put a diaper or pull up on her and I am hoping it doesn't make her take steps back.

Here is Lyla on her potty that plays music every time she goes. We bought her disney princess underwear and she is very excited about them.

Here is my belly at not quite 30 weeks...I feel so huge and I still have 2 and a half months to go!!

I haven't posted a picture of Jesse for a long time so here is Jesse doing what he does best. I thought I would brag a little about how awesome my husband is. He treats me like a queen. He wakes up at 6am, works out, showers, eats breakfast, makes my breakfast sometimes(its oatmeal in the rice cooker which keeps it warm till I get up). He goes to work at 8, comes home at 5:15 and 90% of the time makes dinner. I hate cooking and he says he enjoys doing it. Saturday mornings he always watches Lyla so I can sleep in longer. He would do anything for me no matter how unreasonable I am being. Not only does he support us financially, he is also a full time student working on getting his bachelors in software development. He ALSO has a financial website called (I don't know how he makes time to do everything that he does). I am so very grateful to have him as my husband. I would be lost without him. I love you honey!

Lyla's 2nd B-day Party

Here are a few pictures of Lyla's 2nd birthday party which I think was a huge success. There were games so all the kids had fun. There was food so all the adults had fun. It was a finding nemo party so I decorated the best I could on a budget.(which explains the homemade ocean/sand cake). Finding nemo is kinda an old movie so it was a little difficult finding decorations for cheap. We lucked out and got the last nemo pinata at target though woohoo!! The party was from 2-4 which is lyla's nap time so she was pretty out of it the whole party so that was a little disappointing. Other than that it turned out great and we were all pooped afterwords. Thank you to all those that came, we hope you had a good time!

2 Already

My little girl is already 2 years old!!! Where has the time gone? Lyla has become a want to do everything herself, doesn't need anybody, risk taker. Shes not a mommy's girl or a daddy's girl. When I punish her she goes to her daddy and when daddy punishes her(not very often)she comes to me. She LOVES playing at my moms house with her cousins and uncles. She loves any kind of stuffed animal or baby doll. We have at least 30 of them. When I ask her where baby sister is, she lifts up my shirt and kisses my belly. She already loves her little sister. Theres no words to describe how much we love this little girl. Happy Birthday Lyla!
