Much going on in my little world of child raising... we've been trying (unsuccessfully) to get Jess to stay dry at night - to the point where the poor kid was trying so hard and waking up soggy every morning. I've been getting up in the middle of the night to bring her to the potty, saying no drinks anytime after four o'clock... it was getting crazy... and nothing was working. So I called the pediatrician and spoke with a nurse there - I LOVE my pediatrician. The whole office is so wonderful, so helpful and supportive, and the nurse I spoke with told me that it was perfectly normal, not only is it totally okay that she's still wetting the bed - BUT THAT NOT LETTING HER DRINK AND HAULING HER POOR SCRAWNY BODY TO THE POTTY WON'T WORK AT ALL. I feel so much better. So Jess and I had a long talk, and we're not going back to pull ups, we're going to use "big girl pull ups," not the baby ones she was using and let her body grow up on her own.
Sam has fallen a little bit in love with Swiper. Seriously. (speaking of seriously - Jess has started saying it all the time - it's like living with Meredith Grey). And he screams "Oh Man" all the time now - it's so cute :-)
