Something funny Anaiah said today

Anaiah is almost 3, I can’t believe it! Before I head to bed I had to take the time to document a few things she did today.

This morning she was playing with garage band on my husbands iPad. She was playing with the piano and was having fun changing the sounds. She got to one that sounded like a fart and said something to the effect of “that’s a fart, ahah”. So then she pressed it a few more times and said “oops, excuse me”. Jon and I started laughing and couldn’t stop. That’s something you’d expect out of a 8 year old boy not a 2 1/2 year old girl lol.

*Poop mentionedĀ below*

Then later that day I told her I had to go potty (she’s been potty training for about a month now and is pretty good about going on her own when it comes to pee but she still poops in her undies). She said “I watch you go potty, you watch me go potty”. So we got to the bathroom and I went first. I had to go #1 and #2. While I was going to the bathroom she looked down at my undies and saw my panty liner. I was having my period but it was a bit light so instead of a tampon I was using a thin pad. She got this huge grin on her face and said, quite enthusiastically, MOMMY YOU POOP IN YOUR UNDIES??”. I said “no sweetheart I didn’t”. She pointed to the panty liner and said (with a smile and the kind of tone like “ha, mommy had an accident too) “no mommy, you pooped in your undies!”
I Couldn’t help but laugh so hard I cried. I had to try to explain to her about periods but she’s not even 3 so of course she didn’t understand. She was so happy mommy had an accident in her undies too. Silly girl.

For a while Anaiah had caught on that if she told me she had to go potty that I’d come get her out of her room and let her go. So at bed time she’d keep saying “mommy, I have to go pottyyyyyy” (like a na na na na boo boo, you have to come get me” tone). Luckily she has realized that it’s not very funny to me and only tells me when she has to go.

well I suppose I should get to bed. Oh one more thing. Felicity laughs primarily at her sister She has only laughed for me a few times. It’s adorable to see how much these two girls love each other already. Felicity adores Anaiah and Anaiah adores her.

The other day Anaiah said to Felicity “baby sister I love you SOOOOOO much” Then turned to me and said “mommy I love my Felicity SOOOOO much”.

She also sings to Felicity when Felicity is upset and it calms her down. Felicity loves to be sang to. I got it on video but unfortunately something happened with the sound and the sound didn’t come out šŸ˜¦

ok off to bed.

Look who is 16 months!

I can’t believe my baby girl is 16 months old! Where has the time gone?

My baby is morphing into a toddler. She is still quite the happy baby but now likes to scream. we are trying to teach her to use her “words” instead of screaming but unfortunately I have been a bad influence when it comes to raising my voice. I’m trying to get better but no one is perfect!

She is now climbing stairs and will walk over to the stairs and cry when its time for a nap! Soon enough this little peanut will be putting herself to bed!

Music that helped me heal

Video

I wanted to share another song that has helped me get through some very hard times. I’m not feeling well today so this will be brief (it’s also something I don’t care to think about)

On April 22, 2010 we adopted a baby boy. On May 10th, 2010 he was taken back by this birth mother.

InĀ 2011 after a bit of a break we decided to stop trying to adopt (we had a few more failures after that one) and we adopted some embryo’s instead (from a couple that were done growing their family). our first cycle failed but our second worked. My due date was 4/21/2012. In September when I was 8 1/2 weeks pregnant I found out the baby died. We tried again several months later and on 4/23 I had another miscarriage. April of each year has always been very hard for me. Anyhow…

I hit rock bottom after those losses. I wanted to share with you a song that explains exactly how I was feeling. I would listen to this song on repeat at work to help me get through the day. This song really spoke to me. Listen to the words and I think you will understand.

I still listen to it from time to time.

This song also spoke to me during that time as well.
