38 weeks and waiting. Still no signs of baby making an arrival. Everything looks and sounds good though. Heartbeat is great, position is head down and I am feeling great.  Cydney has been talking about her baby brother more and how she is going to be my helper when he "comes home". She sees his little diapers and clothes and just says "Oh how cute". 

From the ultrasound a few weeks ago. 

We re-attacked Potty training with Cydney again this past week. She is doing so much better, only having accidents when she is sleeping. She is no longer scared to use the toilet and is excited to be wearing her big girl underwear everyday.  I am so proud of her for picking it up so fast this time around.  

Took a trip out to the Flight Line today so Jared could take his Squadron photo which gave Cydney a chance to look at Daddy's Airplane up close.  She was so excited to see it and touch it, and kept asking Jared if he was going to fly in it right now.  

Not much else going on, just anxiously awaiting any signs baby boy is ready to come. We will be sure to keep everyone updated on the events of his arrival.

Budding artist

One of Cydney's favorite things to do is to draw, paint and color.  She has started to actually draw things that we can tell what they are. Lately she has been fascinated with drawing bugs. Which is funny because she has had a fear of bugs for the last year or so.  Every night she likes to talk a walk around the block to look for Beatles and Rolly Pollies. She has even become comfortable holding them. Hopefully we are over the intense fear.
