Not much here......

So not too much has been going on down here......we are getting the house cleaned, picked up and this weekend we will be working in the yard to spruce it up for my mom's visit.....I am so excited that she will be here on Tuesday.......and staying for 2 weeks....ahhh so nice.....I am still waiting for the bed frame to get here for the guest bedroom....which probably won't make it in time since it still hasn't shipped yet.....Gerrrh.....I actually may call today to see whats up.....anyway....

So I have been keeping up with my workouts.....created myself a chart again to keep track and may sure that I am progressing.....Shawn too is now hitting the gym at lunch.....it seriously puts us in better moods, besides helping us get in shape.....love it.....Lila is still coming to bed with us in the middle of the night....it works OK for now since I usually have to feed her before I head off to the gym at 5.15am....I have decided that after I am done nursing then we will work on a serious bed time and routine for her.....I am pretty sure I didn't have a bedtime routine for the twins until after they turned 1......and I am happy to report that she all of a sudden loves to eat food.....she will eat most food I put in front of her, but I have caught her feeding DB on the side of her highchair......pretty cute.....I still can not believe Lila will be 1 in a week.....just crazy.....of course we will have a small birthday for her.....just us, my Mom and her friend Carol.....and Uncle Joel.....should be fun...I am planning on getting a Pinata for Lila to pull open and of course it will be filled with stuff for the twins.....that way they feel a part of Lila's special day.....

On twin news.....Kiara is pretty much FINALLY potty trained....well for the most part....Yes, I know 'Gasp'......my kids are 3 and still not potty trained....but one of my good friends Kary D told me that her daughters were 3-3 1/2 and it made it really easy for them to train and that they picked it up so fast.....and I must say Kiara too is doing great and pretty much has it mastered....she has not had 1 accident since starting wearing underwear and she refuses to wear a pull up at nap time and has had no accidents!.......she totally knows when she has to go.....and pretty much does all of it herself.......pooping is still a problem.....but she will get it.....she is so determined not to poop in her underwear.....I just love listening to her talk about going potty.....and I love how proud of herself she is.....Mikiah is wearing underwear too......but she refuses to sit on the potty most of the time....but she doesn't have accidents....she's a holder which is not good so we are working on it......cause when she does go nothing (Not even a night time pull up) can contain it all........She too loves to talk about it.....here is the conversation we had this morning....

Right after a morning bath:

Mom: MJ, you wearing underwear or a pull-up this morning?
MJ: Underwear Mom, I have got to get this done!
Mom: You have got to get what done?
MJ: I have got to get potty training done.
Mom: Oh, well you know if you try to go potty on the potty it will help you get it done sooner.
MJ: I know mom, but I don't want to try right now.
Mom: Ok, just let me know when you need to go.
MJ: I will cause I have to get this done.

So funny.....their language is getting so advanced....I just love it.......I feel that MJ will "get this done" soon.....Anyway........I better get to work.....

Mikiah is so funny! My friend had a hard time with her kids being able to "relax" on the potty and she would put on a video for them to get them to relax and get used to that feeling . . .I don't know maybe it might help. We're just trying books for Trevor and haven't had a ton of success. Sounds like you guys are having a great time down there and the house looks great! Hope you have a great day!

Great to hear the girls are 'getting it done'...they are so cute!
I think it's great that you guys are finding time to workout with your busy schedules. I started making a calender this year for every day that I excercise...I was highlighting the entire box for each day so I could see it as I walked down the hallway, but I wasn't leaving any space for Anna so now I only mark half of the box. It's great incentive to see the days fill up each month.
