No More Paci

We've been done with the paci for about 4 or 5 weeks now, but I haven't had the chance to blog about it! I really never thought this day would come. We (actually Dustin) finally cut the paci down so much that there was nothing left for Taylor to suck on. It was a really rough few days (and nights) at first, but it quickly got better. One funny thing did start happening though, after we took the paci away. We would wake up in the morning to find Taylor in really weird places. In the corner of the room asleep on the floor, asleep on the floor in front of her door or on the couch. I think in one week, we found her on the couch 7 days in a row! One morning, I woke up and rolled over to get out of bed, only to find Taylor standing next to the bed. She said, "Hi mom. I've got my blanket. My pull-ups wet, I need panties. I have a bracelet on. Do you like it?" I looked at her and thought, my gosh, how long have you been awake??? Freaky!! I am glad to report that she is now sleeping IN HER BED all night again, with no problems.

We are still working on potty training. Gosh, when is this going to end??? She will have great days and then bad ones. One day last week, she wore panties all day, even in Lubbock, with NO accidents. Then, if we're at home all day, sometimes she will have 3 accidents in one day. Potty training has been really tough for me!

I am now 11 1/2 weeks pregnant and already in maternity clothes...what??? It's been so much faster the second time! I can still wear some of my low-rise jeans, but most of my tops are just too tight! We got to see the little peanut a few weeks ago at my 8 week sonogram. It literally looked like a little peanut with a heartbeat. It was such a relief to see the baby! We go again Monday for my 12 week appt and will get another sonogram...can't wait!! I've also been feeling the baby move, which is a lot sooner than with Taylor! It's great! Monday I laid down to take a nap and the little peanut was squirming like crazy. So awesome! I don't have any pics to post, but I promise some Christmas ones soon!
