1st Visit to the Dentist

Poor Gloria Grace is the 3rd child. She had her 1st visit to the Dentist today, & I didn't get a picture =( Well the boys only got pictures, because the dentist took them =) Actually, I take lots of pictures of Gloria Grace =) Here's one of her dancing at Seth's birthday party a couple of weeks ago:

She did really great for the dentist. She completely cooperated, while the hygienist cleaned her teeth & she let the dentist (a kind of bigger guy) look at her teeth too. All this with NO NAP! Her appointment was at 2:30...not sure what I was thinking making an afternoon appointment...totally messes w/nap time.

Anyway, back to the actual checkup...Gloria Grace has an extra baby tooth in the front on the bottom. It looks like the tooth is broken in ½, but it actually grew in that way. The dentist said that we should probably think about pulling it out next year. (when she's a little bigger & can handle the happy gas) Not exactly sure how I feel about that, but I will be quizzing all my dental friends about it.

On another note...she is doing really well w/potty training...daddy needs a little help---he keeps putting diapers on her, when they go places. He's afraid she'll have an accident in public...WIMP! Just Kidding--kind of =) I took her to the dentist in panties---fully expecting to get peed on while she screamed for the dentist & she made it NO problemo! No screaming & no peeing! We went to the bathroom 3 times & she didn't do a thing, but I'd rather a false alarm than pee pants :) I guess I just need to hide all the diapers from daddy =) (She still needs them @ night, or I'd just get rid of them.

Enough babbling on & on...Stay tuned for Birthday weekend FUN....Gloria Grace will be 2 Super bowl Sunday =)

Big Girl Panties =)

Gloria Grace got big girl panties for Christmas. She's been wearing them a little sporadically, and I really wasn't sure that I was so thrilled I'd introduced her to the potty. After a month of off & on potty training...I get why people wait until their kids are way older to deal w/potty training. It is a little frustrating to take her to the potty 100 times, when she really just wants to sit there & eat the gummies we bribed her with to sit there the 1st time :/ She's been going pee on the potty before she gets in the bath for a while, & she pooped on the potty when she was 10 months old (I knew she was about to go, and I ran her in there & sat her on it & she went :) She tells me when she has to go poop, but she says it & she'd pretty much done.

Anyway...last night, she kept saying she had to pee...she would sit down pass a little gas & then jump back up...I don't know what it is about my kids, but when they 1st learn to poop on the potty they are very nervous to sit there & let it happen. I finally ended up just pulling her panties off & letting her run around in just her shirt. I was giving Coy a haircut, so I was in the bathroom & her potty chair was in my bathroom closet (for privacy :) .....

Nest thing you know she is poking her head out the door saying Mommy I pee peed potty...I looked in there & she had one poop!!!! Woot Woot!!!! She again pooped on the potty today & peed all day in the potty today, w/only 2 pee pee accidents--both of which she was sitting on daddy's lap (tee hee).

So I think I am happy we started potty training after all =)

Happy 9th Birthday Seth!

I ♥ this kid!

It has been WAY too long, since I have blogged. It's not that there isn't tons of stuff going on. (We have 3 kids & I work full-time! =) We always have something happening :) It's just easier or lazier--with facebook-- I tend to just quickly post on there. I will try to do better--really I will :)

Happy 12th Brithday Coy =)

Twelve years ago today I became a mom for the first time. I am so proud of the young man Coy is growing into. Thankful today for my blessings.

This is sure to be a memorable birthday, but for the wrong reasons :( Coy was diagnosed w/strep throat yesterday evening. He's been feeling pretty rough today, but is beginning to feel a little better. He even asked me for his birthday pancakes =)

Gloria Grace has also been sick :( She started w/a fever last Saturday. I thought it was her teeth, as she is cutting 4 molars. I took her to the doctor on Tuesday, and she said it was a viral infection that would have to run it's course. Her mouth is full of little ulcers & her gums are very irritated :( She has been one miserable little girl! I took her this morning thinking maybe she had strep too. She does not have strep, so hopefully we are at the tail end of her virus.

Making it through customs with all our supplies.
The people to be ready & the work to be fruitful for God's Glory!

Wrapping Up Our First Year Together =)

It is hard to believe that it has been a whole year since God blessed us with Gloria Grace.

I think this is my most favorite picture ever! Seeing the excitement & smiles on my boys faces (Tim included) makes my heart happy.

Here we are a year later. Still smiling BIG!
