Fat and Happy

So I am fat and Tinsley is happy and that about sums up where we are in this pregnancy.

So, ok I am not fat, just very pregnant and really beginning to feel it with work and the heat. Although I feel pretty lucky in the weather department, it could be worse. Tinsley is very happy inside me and is constantly moving. I had my check-up today and she is not ready to come out, which suits me just fine. I had a non-stress test and the Doctor said she is happy as she can be. She had flipped, yet again and had her head back up and really leaning more to being transverse, which is how Meredith was. Again, we expected this, so it is no big deal. I can't believe she will be here in 14 days or less!

In other Rowley news, Meredith is still interested in potty training, but the only time she really uses it is in the morning. We haven't been pushing but I think we will start progressing more now that we have gone through all the diapers and now have only pull ups and training pants.

Our biggest issue is that Meredith will NOT stay in her bed. She did great for two weeks and now she gets up almost immediately and opens the door to look down the hall. We have her gate up so she can't get out, but she either plays or cries herself to sleep on the floor. Every night! So we would love any advice anyone has to give on how to keep her in bed. She also wakes up during the night at least 3 or 4 nights a week and comes to our room. When she does this one of us, usually Bill, takes her back to bed and stays until she falls back asleep, which can take awhile. We joke that she is trying to get us ready for the baby, but it really isn't funny as all of us need our sleep.

So, any advice would be great because we are getting desperate!

She did it!

Meredith went pee pee in the potty tonight! We asked her if she needed to go potty and she said yes (which she always says), and low and behold when she got up she had peed. I could not believe it.

We spent the weekend trying to find training pants to fit her skinny butt, but to no avail. They make them in her size, you just can't find them. I did get some pull-ups yesterday and she wore them at school today and did good. I did order some training pants online so we should have them next week.

I am just in shock that she went in the potty!
