Week 3... things are getting better!

This week went much smoother than the last. We have had our moments... but that is expected. A few things we have done: Family pictures! I think we are going to have some really cute shots. I had a movie night with friends. We saw He's Just Not That In To You. So funny. Allen has gone fishing, mountain biking and played basketball. He also has had lots of work stuff to do because he is leading his POA meeting for work next week. I know he will do great! I took K to Bridge Street to play in the fountains and get a new outfit for pictures. We also ate at PF Changs. It ended up being a really fun day. Tripp has been amazing for all of these events and there have been no real blunders. God is good! Potty training is getting a wee bit better with K. I am still so tired of her holding in her poo that I could (and might) go insane. It's killing me! If anyone has had a kid that held their poo in and just left smears of poo in their undies over and over again for days, please give me some advice of how to get past this. Allen and I are clueless at this point. I think that is about it. Here are a few pics of the week. Muggs finally got some quality snuggle time with Tripp. Do we have a great dog or what?!?!?! I also love the pic of the two kids smiling. K is really being sweet to Tripp. I am glad she is so loving. I just wish all the other acting out would come to a halt. I talked to another mom of kids 3 years apart today and she had the same issues with her two that we have been having. I do know it is normal and we are hanging in there. Enjoy my sweet babies!!! :) Oh, and if you think about it... say a prayer for Ashley... she is going to have that baby within the next few days! Induction on Monday or she could go into labor earlier! I can't wait!!!

I've got poo advice... Sam did the exact thing just a few months ago. A parent told me to start giving him Miralax once a day. It took me a while to figure out the right amount (for Sam, it's a little less than half a capfull), but once I figured it out things have been great. No more accidents. Our pediatrician said it's safe and you can keep it up as long as you need to. Give it a try.
