I'm coming back, I hope.

First it was Christmas, then vacation, then a crazy few days & Elias' birthday and the superbowl and blah, blah, blah. The first thing I need to explain is that my sweet husband has been pounding away trying to speed finish a class during the whole month of January. This means that while I have my phone for checking email and updating facebook, I have no real computer for blogging or emailing. I actually have several long emails and about sixteen blogs that I want to write. So, sweet Lauren has offered me her laptop this evening so I can play computer catchup. 

In the meantime, here are a few blog topics that I would like to explore in the near future: 
- Elias' second birthday party. Lots of kids, lots of amazing friends, & lots of cars. 
- Potty training. Today I armed myself with three different books, a comfy toddler potty, and some sweet cars little man underwear. I think there will be lots of blogs about this subject coming up - but for now, let's just say I'm optimistic. 
- Our crazy house. For right now, I'm at the top of a love rollercoaster with our nuts ministry. Sometimes the insanity drives me, well, insane - but right now I feel like God is stirring something up and it is meaningful instead of mind-numbing. 
- The final stretch. I have roughly 15 more weeks of pregnancy. 15 weeks to get my junk together meaning get a healthy system down for laundry, chores, & all the other hard parts of motherhood & homemakerness. I also want to go into this baby like a fighter goes into the ring - it's not like I can work on my abs but I want the rest of my body to be in the best shape possible so that c-section recovery is as easy as possible. 

ok. That's what is coming up. 
What's going on with you?

We have almost got pee pee'ing in the potty mastered! There's yet to be a poop though :( Not sure what your books will say about this but a mini reeces cup has worked wonders as far as potty motivation!

I can't wait to find out what this little man's name is going to be. I'm kinda hoping you went with Theodore so I can call him Teddy Bear. I'm sure that made you cringe :)
