Good and Bad

The good this week:

My new cardigan.  I am always hot, let alone when I'm pregnant.  Which is why lighter weight cardigans are a win.  

We made pumpkin muffins yet again this week.  They are the easiest, yummiest treat and we love them!  Box of cake mix, can of pumpkin and some chocolate chips.  Done!

Addilyn is all of a sudden interested in potty training.  On Sunday we got to a friend's house and she said she needed to go potty.  I put her on the toilet and she pooped.  Then later that night peed two more times.  She hasn't gone every time since, but has gone on the toilet more times than she's gone in her diaper the last few days.  I don't want to get my hopes up that it'll be this easy but I'm going with it! 

Despite just about every bone in my body, I've worked out four times this week and am really proud of myself.  

The bad: 

The beginning of this week was rough.  We had a total fail at Bible Study childcare, which is so discouraging to me.  The last few times there and at church haven't been the best, and they seem to be getting worse. After our long, long struggle last year I thought we were over this, and I'm sad, anxious and disappointed we're here again.  We both cried on the way home.  It was pathetic. Praying it's a short phase and that I have wisdom how to handle it. 

We've had cancelled plans that I was looking forward to this week and we've been home a lot. Which makes the days seem so much longer.  

I can't even wait for our sweet boy to get here and love him so much.  But this week I've felt more anxious than others about adding another baby to our family.  Anxious about Addilyn and the lack of attention she'll need, how I'll handle bedtime alone as we're in a rougher phase, and just managing two kids in general.  I know we'll figure it out and it'll take time, but the harder stuff has been on my mind more this week.  

Happy almost weekend! I can't believe next week is Thanksgiving, and I can't wait for Chris to have a four day weekend and spend lots of time together!

Good job on going on the potty Addilyn!

Don't worry too much about how life will be with two kids! It'll be okay! I've actually found that the transition from none to one was waaaay harder than from one to two kids. You already have a way of doing things probably and the new baby will just go along with it all! Not saying that it will never be overwhelming, but you're gonna do just fine!!

I know you may not want to hear it right now but you will THANK yourself later if you potty train her now. Do it! Don't wait because you will be so happy she can go potty by herself when you are nursing your little boy. It's hard but so worth it!
Have a great weekend

I am sorry to hear you guys had a tough time at Bible Study. Hopefully it will get better again soon. Yay for her showing interest in potty training! I really wish Kinley would. Some days she wants to and others she really fights me when I ask her so I don't push her. Eventually right! And you will figure out the 2 kiddo thing! I am quite nervous myself! We will have to bounce ideas off each other!
