    Your facebook posts on this encouraged me to finally kick our binky habit. Daniel hasn't had one in a little over a month and now when he sees another baby with one he only sometimes asks for his. I, too, am less worried about the new baby having one.

    I think it's wonderful that you are content with her. She's so adorable and sounds like such a big girl already.

    I'm so glad he's made so much progress. It sounds like you have wonderful support.

    Honestly, I started reading, and decided to post, then go back to catching up. I REALLY want to tell you about Ki.

    Ki is doing AWESOME! She's definitely got a temper, and her tantrums are bad. But they're only rediculousely bad when she's tired. We had to take all her toys out of her room so that she'll sleep at night instead of getting up to play. She just became fully potty trained, day and night. She's been day time trained (with a few accidents) at 1.5 years old, but just recently we've trusted her at night to take her night time pull up off. So I'm so stinking happy about that. I can only thank her bossy older sister for that though.

    My neighbor has started a little reading with her. She follows a program and has a lot more patience than I do. Ki now can spell her name (which isn't hard with only 2 letters) and knows 3 letter sounds. She usually has to repeat a lesson a couple of times before she remembers the sound, but HEY, I still think it's pretty good.

    She's actually got a boyfriend. I have to laugh. There is a 17 year old Jr who's sisters watch our girls, and she's got that boy wrapped around her little finger like none other. Infact, he had a girl over when our girls were at his house, and his mother told me that he took her home because she "didn't like kids" and Ki was annoying her. Ki's like his baby sister, and Ki makes him do EVERYTHING for her, even go and get her ice cream!! It's really cute, and very sweet.

    She's a doll, and very demanding. Luckily, her older sister is a Bossy May. Together they really keep eachother on their toes.

    Here's a link to the cutest song every! (not partial or anything am I?)

    Savanna is doing great! Her mom feels like a bad mom though more often than not I really wish I could afford to stay home with her, I feel like I never see her at least I have weekends with her, but I just don't feel like it's enough....and to top it off, when I drop her at daycare she clings to me and screams as I head out the door (my babysitter says she calms down right away and is fine for the rest of the day, but it doesn't help my feeling like a bad mom )

    she is talking more and more every day and it is SO dang cute! I just love how she talks......she says MORE but it sounds like MOWA......another one sounds like anudder one.....she is always talking about her "pretty hair", she says it pity haiw, and when I tell her she has pretty hair she says thank you (ank too) etc....it's just cute

    she is "mostly" potty trained but just during the day, she still wears a diaper at nap time and at night....and she still has pee accidents here and there, but not very often and she hasn't had a poop accident in a LONG time!

    lately she has been saying "my belly hurt" i took her in to the doctor last week because she hadn't pooped for a couple of days, we gave her some Miralax and she's been regular ever since, but she still says my belly hurt? Not really sure what to do about it? We've noticed (my babysitter and I) that it is usually after she drinks milk, so we have toned it down on the milk a little bit, but she is still saying my belly hurt like every day? anyone have advice?

    oh and this girl is a PICKY eater! It drives me nuts! I can't get her to eat a fruit or vegetable! and when i do make a meal and she doesn't eat, I don't make her anything else special and tell her she will just have to go hungry.......which she does and it doesn't seem to bother her to go hungry GRRRR

    she is definitely a mama's girl. she does just fine with dh if I'm not around, but if I AM around, she doesn't want a thing to do with him. It is really sad for him and it really does make him feel bad, especially since he is out of town so much for work (he just left yesterday for another 2 weeks in Texas)

    I think that's all I can think of! seriously if anyone has advice, please share!

    Sandra - You are such an incredible momma!!! Eli sounds like a bundle of fun! And Yay for you working with him. After my terrible time with AJ I realized that anyone who has the patience to work with kids to help him have a huge gift, and you really have my respect. You're an awesome mamma!!!

    Janelle - I cannot wait to hear about the evals. Not like you're busy or anthing right now. Seriously, I'm so excited for you. Congrats mamma!!! OH yeah, those security locks for doors are wonderful. I had to put one on my pantry for AJ's night time meanering.

    Jenni - Ellie is so cute! Sounds like she's progressing and doing wonderful. I think it's great that you are able to still nurse her. It's amazing!

    Maggie - What a big boy!!! So exciting to know that he loves the water. I'm a huge fish, and it's been a fight getting AJ and Ki to like the water, I can onlly imagine how easy it would be to teach him to swim, then you don't have to worry about him too much!!! I watched a boy (3 at the time) that was back slidding on potty training. I had to wash him down afterward, so I made him take showers. I called it a cold shower, but it wasn't cold at all. After a few times he didn't ever have accidents at my house. I didn't get mad at him anymore, but I made him wash his clothes and clean up after his accidents (even wiping down the floor). Don't know if that would help at all, but it seemed to help this boy. GL with that!!

    Blondie - Such adorable pics!!! I have to say I'm a bit jealouse that you are able to visit Disney World. FUN!!!

    Katie - WOW, such a handfull you have. But the kids sound like they are doing so good!!!

    Lesli - One of these days we are just going to have to get together!! You are an amazing Mom!!! Look at everything you have done for her and your hubby!!!

    It's nice to read everybody's updates.

    Daphne is doing really well. She just started going to a Mother's Day Out program two mornings a week, which is really nice for both of us. She's a chatterbox...she loves to make up stories and tell "jokes". She makes her dolls and stuffed animals talk and she loves to sing to her little brother. She's got her numbers and letters down, and we're working on sounds. I normally wouldn't push it, but she's really interested in reading so I figure I might as well take advantage of her interest.

    She doesn't sleep nearly enough. I think she's ready to give up her nap, which makes me crazy because with a newborn, I need a nap by 1pm. She's up by 6 every day and rarely asleep before 8:30. We put her to bed between 7:45-8 and she just talks and sings to herself for an hour. We're lucky if her nap is an hour long. Ugh.

    She's been potty trained since January, but she still wears a diaper at night. I think she could stay dry if it weren't for the cup of water that she insists on taking to bed with her. I just don't have the energy to change that habit at the moment.

    She's adjusted really well to becoming a big sister. She adores her brother and is surprisingly helpful with him. She loves to give him his pacifier, sing to him, bring me blankets and diapers...pretty much anything she can do to help she loves. It's really heartwarming to see her so affectionate with him.

    We're also at the emotional 3 stage. If we say something like "Daphne, be careful, you almost hit your head.", she'll start crying. She's super dramatic and it drives me a little crazy. She starts dance lessons on Tuesday...can't wait until she's old enough for a drama class.

    Hi ladies! It's been forever. I just wanted to let you know how Kamryn is doing. She is thriving. She's such a big girl now. So independant. She is such a little smarty pants now too. She goes NO WAY! NO WAY! Gosh. We've been doing well. We are actually expecting our third baby in May of next year. We just found out. We are so thrilled, and since I've got two DD's, I would love a DS.

    Its been great to read everyones updates!! Christopher is doing good. He is such a smart little man. He can count to 10 and say his abc's up till about j or k. He can recongize some of his colors. He has such a good memory. He can remember things that I forget and he reminds me about them. Terriable 2's though has hit him hard. Some days I about want to pull my hair out! He has taught Cooper how to climb everything!! So I am constantly having to get them off or stuff!! We are working on potty training but he keeps telling me he wants a diaper. So I am kind of bribing him to wear his underware. He has been wanting a buzz light year and woody toy for the longest. So I bought them for him and told him he could only have them if he started trying to go to the potty. He is doing ok with it. told me today 2 times that he had to go but peed in his underware like 4. So we are going to just keep this up and only put pullups on him if we go somewhere. He has glasses but its soooo hard to get him to wear them. I am constantly chasing him trying to get him to put them back on. He has only broke one pair since Feburary though! The only other thing that has been going on with him is back in July he fractured his arm and he had to wear a cast for 4 weeks!

    Here are some pics.

    Picture of him with his glasses. He is holding his new baby cousin.

    Daniel did good with his evaluations. He didn't change on account of them being here. He did everything just like he usually does, so they got an accurate picture of him. The speech pathologist came separately and after Jacob got home from school, and he had a hard time not answering for Daniel when he took more than a second to answer her. But he finally got the idea when I told him "This is a test for Daniel and when you answer, it's like cheating."

    When the speech path was packing up her stuff she did say that she'd be really surprised if Daniel did NOT qualify for services. That made me so happy to hear! When approved, he will have home visits until he turns 3 and then he gets to go to preschool. This also makes me happy because preschools here are pay only and we can't really afford for him to go to the school we want financially speaking. With the help we will be receiving from this program, he will have free (or at least really cheap) preschool.

    I'm not happy that he's "behind", but happy that someone who can help us recognizes that he is "behind" and that he will soon be making progress towards better communication skills!

    I know you all understand my excitement over this. It's been a long road and DH said yesterday after she left (he got home before she finished with him) "we should have done this sooner". Yes, yes we should have. But, better late than never.

    I'm so so happy the eval went well! (Or at least you'll get a good outcome from it!)
