Updates...

I just realized that there are a few things I've blogged about that I should give all of you updates about!


PINK EYE: It looks like all of my insanity yesterday with the Clorox Wipes and antibacterial soap has paid off!!! No one else has gotten pink eye. Emma actually enjoyed having the day to herself. She didn't complain once. She thought it was so cool to eat her meals in my bed (although I did end up with Ketchup and crumbs in my bed...but I was going to change those sheets anyway). Emma watched a ton of TV, a luxury she never gets anymore. Emma also did some school work and read an American Girl book.

BIG BOY BED: Christian has successfully slept in his big boy bed every night since I moved him into it. I think it's been over a week now. He hasn't gotten out of bed once (at night). Nap time is a different story. Christian doesn't cry his head off when I put him down for a nap anymore because he gets up and plays once I've left the room. He has no toys in his room (I've taken them all away), but he still manages to use his imagine. I've found him lining his books up like a train and saying "choo choo." I love it that he's creative - I hate it that he won't nap well!!

BABY CHATTERTON: Our little girl is now almost 24 weeks old. That means I've got 16 weeks until her arrival. She is 11 inches long and I can tell!!! She is so active. I don't think Christian was ever this active! She constantly reminds me that I have five kids to take care of, not just four! There for awhile I didn't have much time to think about being pregnant or her arrival, but now that things have slowed down a little I'm starting to think about getting her room ready and all the things we still need to do before she comes.

glad to know that you won against the Pink Eye monster!! Good job. :) I can't wait to see the baby's pics when she comes...so precious. My little niece should be born anyday...we are waiting!!! Have you decided on any names?

I can't wait for her to come either..and don't worry about clothes, I have enough for BOTH of our daughters, and I can pass them to you when we are done:). The nursery is getting painted this weekend, and I will feel SO much better when that is done. Know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
