14 Weeks

I was 14 weeks on Friday and had a doctor appointment last week. Nothing really happened. Just got to hear the heartbeat again and found out that this new doctor likes to wait until 21 weeks to do the ultrasound. Usually I get me ultrasound around 18 weeks, so that stinks that I have to wait 3 extra than I was expecting. My next check up is May 21st when I'm 18 weeks and then they'll schedule my US for 3 weeks after that. I guess I can wait...

We watched Avatar last night and it was really good. Not as stupid and boring as I expected. It was at least really good up until the last 30 minutes, which I missed because I fell asleep. I might try to watch the end later. Why do movies have to be so long?? It's even worse since we don't get to start them until at least 8:00 depending on when we get all the kids to sleep. I still haven't finished The Men Who Stare At Goats because I fell asleep. Maybe some day....

All of us minus Emma went to the mall today and we went in the Disney store. I love that place!! Everything is so neat I just want to buy 3 of everything! I ended up grabbing new cups for the kids (which were actually cheaper than the ones I was planning to buy from Toys R Us) and 3 Toy Story dolls. We recently got the movie for the kids and they love it so of course when we got in line to check out they had Toy Story 2 so we grabbed a copy.

Pools, Potties, and Breastfeeding

The past couple of days I've spent a couple hours helping my grandma get her pool cleaned out so we can get it ready for summer. That has been a job! We got all the old water out and today we plan on scrubbing the inside a little bit and giving it a final rinse so we can let it fill up overnight. Hopefully we can get that accomplished today and then we'll be done!

Since it's warm out now, I've been putting Abby in regular underpants and just dealing with the consequences. Luckily we have hardwood floors! She is getting better though. She stayed dry almost the whole day yesterday and even told me she had to go twice (on time!). It will be amazing to only have one in diapers soon. Wow. That hasn't happened around here in quite a while. We've even have 3 in diapers at once so 1 will be fantastic.

I have decided to definitely try nursing this baby and any tips or advice are very welcome!! I'm a little nervous, but confident at the same time. I plan on taking a breastfeeding class at the hospital in August and reading as much as possible, but I would still love any advice you have to give. I'm very excited about really trying this time. I'm hesitant about reading many books though because the few I've looked at have been very anti-bottle feeding which ends up making pretty mad since I have 3 perfectly healthy bottle babies. I want to read about how to breastfeed not why I shouldn't use formula!

We also have names picked out. I love getting that out of the way as soon as possible. We have Owen for a boy and Anna for a girl. We won't find out what it is for a little over a month though and I don't think I can wait that long! My next check up is Wednesday next week so I guess I'll post an update though I doubt anything exciting will happen.
