The Month of August

Okay, here goes all my catch-up blog, and hopefully, I will be able to stay more on top of it, but man does life fly on by!!! August was a very exciting month for us!! My brother Chris came home from his mission in South Korea with honor and we were thrilled to spend some time with him.  We also went to one of my best friends wedding, Meg!  Coincidence that she set the date when we would be there!! We did lots of shopping and tons of activities while we were in Utah.  Samuel was there for a week, but I stayed a little bit longer with the kids and came home with Jolene.  (She was in Utah getting Katie all ready for school)  It was an awesome trip and we loved every minute of it.  In August, school started and so, in turn, Amilee started preschool.  I was worried with her being so young, (2 1/2 and all the other kids were either 3 or 4), but she has kept up and is right there right along with all the other kids.  There are a group of us moms in my ward and we take turns, teaching the preschool.  It is not my favorite week to teach, but it is going great and the benefits and blessings out way my discomfort way way way much!!  Samuel and I also celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary.  We were able to go to the temple and do sealings and do a little bit of outlet shopping and I think we did dinner....I can't remember now....darn pregnancy brain!!!  And now for some pics!!

Sorry, they are in random order, but that's how it goes sometimes!!!

Hate catch-ups

Well it has most definitely been forever! I hate that I do so good, then get so far behind. But oh well, so is life. Before I do a catch-up post, I want to blog about the here and now. :D

We went to Utah the first weekend of this month, and decided to start potty training with Amilee when we got back. I had it all planned to start on Monday, after we had returned home Sunday and while heading home, I realized that idea was a little silly since we would be so tired, packed and definitely not mentally ready. So we started Wednesday, a week and a half from today. And so far, it is going really well. She loves her big girl panties, and is really good at telling me she needs to go. But going #2 is a whole story in itself. She has always been one to hold it in, so this has been a hard transition. She has went a few times in the potty, but not after holding it in for a few days and causing much discomfort. So sad. I hope she will be able to catch on with this quick BC it is so sad seeing her uncomfortable. But I am happy she is making progress and becoming such a grown up girl. It's am exciting, but exhausting process.

And for some exciting news, in a week from today, next Friday, we find out what the sex of the baby is! We can't wait!  We don't really have any names picked out, not any feelings if it's a boy or a girl, so it will be a fun adventure! Only 7 more days and hopefully, they will go fast! 

More to come!
