8. Favorite Book? Too many to try to figure out one.
9. Favorite TV show or movie?At the moment, maybe Franklin?
10. Funny story or moment to share? He is an excellent rhymer. He will ask you to name off words so that he can say something that it rhymes with. But, we found out if we do farm animals we'll say, "Horse," Jackson says, "Borse," we say, "Goat," he says, "Boat," we say, "Chicken," he says, "b*t**en." LOL. He has no idea what he's saying but we think it's hilarious.
11. Potty Trained? Night Trained? Day Trained? Day and night.
12. Preschool, Daycare, or home? Preschool 3 mornings a week.

You:
1. TOC, TTC, Pregnant, Done? IDK.
2. Anything new or interesting to share? Not much. DH just got a captain's job that will likely be permanent. We're pretty stoked.

4. Something you are looking forward to this year? Having my boobs back to myself Smile

Siblings:
1. How are our Little Ones dealing with siblings (new or older)? He loves him. He told DH yesterday that he's so glad that I had boys. Melt my heart.
2. Any fun or interesting things to share about your other kids? Colby's a darling. My friend's son, who's Colby's age and her first child, is a loud one. We always say how similar he and Jackson are. I think that reassures her that he won't be loud forever. And she calls Colby a sloth. Aww, he's totally not, but I do compare him to a fat old guy on vacation with a drink in hand. He's just SO mellow. You get one of each personality totally rang true with us.

I was excited about it until I found out the wedding is on a ferry. Dh is a groomsman, so I don't expect him to be too much help. The boat does not appear to be at all child-friendly. It's permenatly docked, so they cut down some of the railings to allow for views. I'm super nervous about the kids on it already.

She's been day trained since 2 years old and night trained for a couple of months, but she still wets her pants (not fully, just pees a little) enough to really annoy me. She will go weeks without doing it and then do it 10 times in one week. I'm starting a sticker chart to help her get the new bike she wants so we can work on it.

Not officially Smile But, I have a lot of plans. I've had a white basin forever, and really need to take some pics like Lauren's bubble bath pictures! I bought that basin a few months ago and totally have been procrastinating because of the cold. (Hoping Colby still even fits in it!) My friend and I are doing a lemonade stand for her little girl's pictures and we're going to do Colby in some too. And I have big plans for his cake pictures and some in orange poppies just like his newborn pictures with the suitcase for comparison. So, I have lots of plans, I just need to get on it!

You are going to be so happy with Lauren's pictures for years to come!

5. Clothing size... 3t/4t, shoes size 8 1/2
6. Favorite color... Pink
7. Favorite toy... Right now it is his Cozy Coupe
8. Favorite Book... um, doesn't really have a favorite, just loves to be read to. Work on some sight words with him. Hi teacher recommended reading him Dr. Seuss books and picking out one repetitive word and showing it to him and having him "read" that word to me
9. Favorite TV show or movie... TV show is anything on Disney channel, and also he has started to like Star Trek TNG (we found it on Netflix and he loves it!) Movie is Happy Feet. He is going to be so excited on Easter Sunday, we got him Happy Feet 2 for his Easter basket.
10. Funny story or moment to share... Josh has been hitting his friends at school a lot lately. When I went into his classroom on Tuesday (yesterday) to pick him up, I asked him if he had been a good boy, if he had been nice to his friends that day. He said "yes, I was a good boy today mommy. I said "Good, but let me talk to Mrs. Nigon and see what she says." Josh replied "NO! Don't talk to Mrs. Nigon!" and grabs my hand and starts pulling me towards the door. The little stinker did not want me talk talk to his teacher because he had hit his best buddies in the mouth.
11.Potty trained... Daytime, yes. Nap time, yes. Night time, no. Starting in a day or 2, he is almost out of pull-ups. We are staring as soon as they are gone. I went to Wal-Mart and got a bunch of cheap sheets so I don't have to do laundry every single night.
12. Preschool, day care, or home...Preschool and home. He goes to preschool on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. And twice a month he goes on Monday for Messy Monday, where the kids do super messy art projects and lots of sensory things. The rest of the time he is home with me. He is signed up for next year for the 4's room where he will go M,W,F mornings. On Wednesday and Fridays they have an optional full day program, Wednesday are all phys. ed type activities and Fridays are all art programs.

Me

1.TOC, TTC, Pregnant, Done?...Paper pregnant for going on 11 months, see siggy ticker for exact count. We were only shown twice in March. In February we were shown at least 8 times. Our social worker wants us to change our profile key to allow more things, but we did that earlier in the year, and we are not really comfortable allowing anymore drugs during pregnancy.
2. Anything new or interesting to share?... Not really. Josh was going to be in my cousins wedding, but they changed the dates and we are not able to make it. We are going to be out of the country on a cruise.
3. Favorite part of the last year?...Taking Josh to Disney for the first time. We all had a blast.
4. Something you are looking forward to this year... Our new baby!!!
5. Something you are NOT looking forward to this year... LOTS of sleepless night with the new baby...lol!

Siblings

Shelly - I love your dh. Those cookies spelling her name are so cute!

Dani, I hope you get matched soon.

Kristen - can't wait to see the pics you take of Colby...and his party. You should just tell us the theme atleast!

Amber, those pics are ADORABLE!

I'm too lazy to post pics. My camera card is full and I just have no motivation to transfer them all over because that is a JOB! But I've enjoyed seeing all of yours! Lol

Can I still post here? I know I've been mostly MIA for awhile!

Your Little One:
1. Name? Lily
2. Birthdate? 11/25/08
3. Weight? 31 lbs
4. Height? 39"
5. Clothing/shoe size? Depends on what it is. 4T, 5T, 4/5 or XS in the "big" girl section (LOVE being able to shop for her there!) and 8 or 9 in shoes
6. Favorite color? Pink
7. Favorite toy? Her play kitchen and shopping cart
8. Favorite Book? Ladybug Girl
9. Favorite TV show or movie? Her favorite TV show at this moment is Curious George. Movie would be anything with Disney princesses
10. Funny story or moment to share? That girl will change clothes probably at least 5 times a day, and wear at least one princess dress, if not 2 or 3, during the day. She will also wear 4 different pairs of shoes and any other combination of fun accessories she can come up with
11. Potty Trained? Night Trained? Day Trained? Day trained. I've been too lazy to work on night training her so she is still in a pull-up at night
12. Preschool, Daycare, or home? I have a babysitter that watches her in her home M-F, but we won't start pre-K until fall 2013

You:
1. TOC, TTC, Pregnant, Done? DONE!!!
2. Anything new or interesting to share? I have met the most amazing guy ever! We've been dating for almost 10 months now and it has been wonderful!
3. Favorite part of the past year? Meeting the man of my dreams Biggrin
4. Something you are looking forward to this year? I'm getting my Securities license for work so I will be licensed to sell mutual funds. I'm so excited! It only took them about 2 years to finally sponsor me for it! lol
5. Something you are NOT looking forward to this year? Having to take all the exams for my securities license. I think there are 3 all together, and each one takes 40-60 hrs of self-study, and you only get 3 times to pass it before they won't let you retake them.

Siblings:
1. How are our Little Ones dealing with siblings (new or older)? They love each other and they get along so great! Lily insists on climbing in the crib w/ Lucas and giving him a hug and kiss and singing him Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (twice, lol) every night before he goes to bed. It's so sweet!
2. Any fun or interesting things to share about your other kids? Lucas is only 17 months, but he has learned so much just from me working w/ Lily. I can't get over how smart he is! He knows all his letters, upper and lower case, and the sounds most of them make. He can even tell me ones that Lily has trouble with! I think he is starting on numbers next. He knows the number 3 so far Smile

And finally, let's see a new pic!
Easter!
