Potty Training

I decided that being almost 6 months pregnant was not enough work with a toddler so why not work on potty training the boy. I am lucky that he was pretty easy. Minus the 42 (yes 42) times he went to the potty the first day, it was pretty smooth sailing for the weekend. And after a 4 day strike on poop, Evan gave in and got his "potty prize". A nice big crane. he talked about it all day yesterday and couldn't wait for Isaac to get home with it.
Yes, I bribed my child to use the toilet and I am ok with it :)
It has been 5 days and we haven't had an accident since Sunday and dry during naps most days. This boy rocks! The real test will be next week when our family comes to visit and  a lot of car rides. Thank goodness for portable potties and piddle pads for the car seats.

13 weeks!

We have made it to the 2nd trimester! I am 13 weeks today and feeling good. No more morning sickness (that actually has been gone for a few weeks) and no headaches as of now. I am still very very tired but the doctor has me upping my iron intake so hopefully that will give me a little more energy.

Evan is still sure he is having  a sister and her name this week is Go Stop. It changes between that, Stop Go and No Thank You. Very creative :)

Isaac and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary today. Started our morning with both taking Evan to school and then going on a breakfast anniversary date. Next week we are going out to see Chris Isaak in concert so that will be our real celebration.

Evan has been saying some pretty funny things lately and not really sure where he gets it. I had asked him what he wanted for a snack and his response was "something wonderful". LOL

That's it for now.

Long Time

It has been FOREVER since I have updated this site. But now is as good as time as ever to get back into working on it. I have said it before but I will try to be better at keeping this up to date.

Things have been busy lately. Evan is now closer to 3 than 2 and has the attitude to prove it! He wants to do everything himself and isn't afraid to tell you that. He whines all the time and we just keep working with him to "use his words" and he may even get what he wants.

Evan goes to a Montessori Preschool 3 mornings a week and just loves it. He moves up to the actual preschool in the fall. His ability to learn blows my mind and amazes me on a daily basis. It seems if we read him a book or sing him a song within a few days he will just start singing or repeating the book when he wakes up in the morning. How I wish for that memory :)

We are also expecting a new addition to the family! Baby K #2 is due around September 20, 2012. A nice High Holiday Baby. I have asked Evan about 4 or 5 times if he wants a baby brother or sister and every time he says sister. We asked him what "her" name should be and his standard answer is "no". So, the name Evan as come up with for the baby is "No Thank You Konikoff".

He kisses my belly which I don't think there is anything much sweeter than that and talks to the baby every once in awhile. His favorite thing to talk to it about is what he is eating. Pretty funny.

I have been much more tired this time around and morning sickness has been all day nauseousness. Seems to be getting better as I am nearing the beginning of my second trimester. Had an ultrasound last week and the baby didn't stop moving. I wish I could remember what Evan was like at that point but I am still pretty early.
