So here we are….the month I’ve been looking forward to basically all year. Zoe will be born this month! She’s due in 28 days, to be exact. And I still haven;t done anything about a hospital bag. I think I had it packed at 30 weeks with Izzy, lol. Believe it or not, I still have a few projects I would like to do before Zoe arrives. I’ve been putting them off in favor of making jewelry and bows for my etsy shop! (Which, by the way, I’m offering 25% off with code FALL2012!) Maybe I’ll actually get around to them before she gets here.
Izzy has been doing extremely well with her potty training! She is in panties most of the time now, with the exception of bedtimes and when we’re out and about. The trick seemed to be just putting her in panties, and not really worrying about pee in my carpet. I just cleaned up the accidents as well as I could, because we’ll be replacing the carpets with hardwoods soon enough anyway. She also didn’t appreciate being stripped of her “big girl” title by Byron, so she put in extra effort. As she says “I NOT A BABY, I A BIG GIRL”. And she is totally a potty rockstar. Minimal accidents now, and she’s so proud. She still gets a sticker to put on her potty and a small treat (normally a small cookie, or a few gummy bears) for every success, and she totally loves that. We bought her a potty seat for the big toilet (because dumping and cleaning poop from a potty is just…disgusting. Way more than changing a diaper for some reason) and she loves using that too! It was $7 at TJ Maxx for a Dora one.
I’m totally ready to meet my new baby, and this time is really flying by! Before we know it, I’ll be sharing pictures of her and her big sister! What are you looking forward to this month?
