Daisy Update

I realized I hadn't updated about Daisy - she got her staples out last Thursday and since then has been doing GREAT.  As soon as they came out and I got her home, she was racing around like a puppy again, so happy to be whole again I think.  Her scar is healing nicely and her fur is growing back from where they shaved it for the surgery and I don't think you'll even see the scar when it's all grown in again.  Hooray!!  Fingers crossed we don't get any more of those least for a while, and none as big as that ever again!! 


So proud of our little guy tonight - before bathtime, he REALLY wanted to sit on his potty.  Well, I encouraged him to sit back down after doing a tiny little bit of pee in the potty, and he went again, and then...he pooped!!  I had tried to put him in the tub and he was having nothing to do with that - I think he really wanted to go potty like a big boy and get to flush.  We were so excited, and he got treasured M&Ms (or, as he calls them MMs) since they are his new favorite thing. 

These are the things we get excited about on a Monday night :)

Sweet Daisy had surgery last Monday to remove the huge tumor she had on her shoulder (biopsy came back negative, thank goodness!).  She's been doing really well, but we've been babying her a lot while she heals.  She's been wearing a t-shirt constantly for the past week to keep things a little neater (I won't gross you out with the details of that!) around the house and should have her staples removed Thursday this week, finally.  I'll get a picture if I can of her frankenstein scar!  Her battle wound, she's such a tough dog :)

33 week belly

First belly pictures we have taken this time around, believe it or not!!  Here I am at 33 1/2 weeks when we went to Kingsmill last weekend for some R&R.  It was such a nice trip!!  We missed our sweet Wade, but had a SUCH wonderful time  :)

I am definitely bigger now (at almost 35 weeks), so I'll have to get some more pictures to show the progression...

Waiting for dinner...

No, we don't really feed Wade alongside the dogs!  But when he's not helping scoop the food into their bowls, he likes to wait with them till I bring their dinner.  He is very helpful and tells them to sit and stay and then demonstrates for them :)

Counting and ABCs

Wade can officially count to 10!  It is a new favorite thing to do.  He also likes to sing the alphabet song and is getting more of the letters down every day it seems.  I have taught him a little song that I sing him when I go get him in the mornings, too, and he's started singing that to me if I ask him to while I get him changed.  I can't believe how fast he is growing up and learning!  We are starting to look at options for schools now - he can start at 2 1/2 at preschool, which will be here before we know it, especially with the new little one arriving in less than 2 months now!  We think he will do great in school since he is just so smart :)

Bless You

My little boy is so sweet.  I sneezed the other day and he said "Bless you, Mama!"  I about melted right there on the spot!!  Now whenever he sneezes or coughs (sometimes on purpose!), he says "Bless you, Wade."  It's the cutest thing ever. 

Another funny, cute, slightly gross thing he's started doing - sticking a finger up his nose and saying "ewwwww!"  Hysterical :)  I know I probably shouldn't encourage that, but it's too funny not to laugh sometimes :)
