16 months...almost 17

> This was written a few weeks ago. Alot has occurred since. Stay tuned for a pregnancy update.

> I've been horrible at updating the blog lately. But life has been CRAZY lately. I'm very busy at work trying to get everything done before I leave on maternity leave. And being 39 weeks pregnant has slowed me down quite a bit. This pregnancy has been a little different than the first. I'm having lots of back pain, alot more swelling, and just more exhausted than I was with Abigail. I blame that on having to chase after a 16 month old and being able to just come home and lay on the couch.

> She's saying most 1 and 2 syllable words. Some come out a little different (like baffle for waffle). But her speech has progressed so much. She's such a parrot lately and tries to say everything we say.
>
> She started feeding herself with a spoon a few weeks ago. She does it every day at daycare but she seems to get aggravated at home when food drops off her spoon and then she gives up. I need to find out what type of spoons they use at daycare.
>
> Her sleeping habits have been HORRIBLE. When Tommy is home she's up at least twice a night and expects to be rocked back to sleep. For some reason when he's working she sleeps fine. I think she knows that daddy will take her out of her crib and rock her. We have to put a stop to that very soon!
>
> She got tubes put in her ears last week. I was hoping to avoid that whole thing but she kept getting ear infections that wouldn't go away.

> She has actually poo'd in the toilet three times. We're not potty training. But we do have a little potty in our bath room that she sits on every morning (with a diaper on) just to get used to the concept. The other day she said she needed to poo poo so Tommy hurried and brought her to the potty and she actually went in the potty. We were so proud of her. It's very early to start potty training so we're just going to let her decide when she wants to go at this point. We'll probably really start trying once she turns 2.

> She is such an amazing little girl and I dont know what we ever did without her. She's learning new things every day and we look forward to watching her grow up into an amazing young lady.

16 months...almost 17

This was written a few weeks ago. Alot has occurred since. Stay tuned for a pregnancy update.

I've been horrible at updating the blog lately. But life has been CRAZY lately. I'm very busy at work trying to get everything done before I leave on maternity leave. And being 39 weeks pregnant has slowed me down quite a bit. This pregnancy has been a little different than the first. I'm having lots of back pain, alot more swelling, and just more exhausted than I was with Abigail. I blame that on having to chase after a 16 month old and being able to just come home and lay on the couch.

But anyway, on to the update on the "big girl". She has developed so much over the last few months.
