Awesome day!!!!

So I went to the mothers of twin sale looking for a sit and stand stroller. I didn't find one (which meant that I have now looked in every possible place I could and can now get the one-that is reasonably prices- that I want). We went and picked it up today. Love it!!!! Just so you don't think this morning was too sad, I was actually so excited about finding the best toys, mostly for Jacob. I found a shake 'n go track with 4 cars for only $10 =0! I also found a shape sorter that I thought would be a blast for the baby (and Jacob, because he loves them) to play with eventually. Of course I found some clothing, but I have to say I was a little disappointed in the 0-3 months for boys section. It was mostly PJs, which I already have from Jacob. Good shopping day!!!

So Jacob talks all the time, and my new favorite word that he says is delicioun (aka delicious). When he was eating yogurt yesterday, after every bite he would say "delicioun." I tried to get him to say it right, which he could, but then still said delicioun after every bite. So just to correct you all it is now delicioun!!!! Man I love that little guy, he is just so cute!!!!

Just to let you all know what JJ is up to. First we are so excited to have him home, even if he is super busy in this rotation. He has been loving his orthopedic rotations, and has really been able to show them what a great person and student-doctor he is. We are so proud of him, but I can't wait until this audition time is all over, then I will finally have my husband back.

Well this is the final count down; 3 weeks before our new little man comes to join us!!!! (unless he decides to come early-I just need to finish Jacob's scrubs for Halloween, so he can work on baby brother's bones--skeleton sleeper).

So yesterday was a very big day for Jacob. He has not been interested in potty training at all. We have tried several times, and he just doesn't seem interested. Well yesterday he woke up ask if he could wear Lightening McQueen pants (some pull ups that we have). I told him only if he would go potty in the big boy toilet. So he went to go sit on the toilet and nothing happened (which is what would usually happen when we tried before), but I still let him wear the pull ups since he tried. Then a little later he was giving that face like he was pooing, and I asked him if he wanted to go in the big boy toilet; he said no. Then the next thing I know he walks into the bathroom takes off him pants and pull ups off and sit on the toilet. THEN HE DID IT, he POOPED in the toilet all by himself. I was so proud of him. Now if we could just get him to pee in the toilet. It's a good start and hopefully he continues to want to be a big boy! Yesterday was also the first time Jacob drew and object. Jacob loves to color (and does pretty good at it), but has never really drawn anything. Well he drew a fish yesterday and we were so excited. I just can't believe how fast he is growing up!!! Oh another momentous occasion, Jacob has also started to read this month. We have been teaching him some sight words. This kiddo just loves to learn. JJ and I are so proud of him. We love you kiddo!

So this weekend is also a big occasion too! This weekend JJ and I will have been married for 5 years. Wow time flies when you are having fun. It kind of feels like we have been married longer, and at the same time I can't believe that it has been 5 years already. I truly can't imagine my life without this wonderful man. I am so lucky to have him with me forever. Love you honey!!!!!!

This Saturday I will also be 36 weeks along!!! I can't wait until we meet our new little man. Now if we could only decide on a name. That is the million dollar question. So what do you all think; here are the 4 we have it narrowed down to...
Samuel LeBaron Taylor, Benjamin LeBaron Taylor, Thomas LeBaron Taylor, Bentley LeBaron Taylor?

So Ohio has been fun, this month I have finished so many projects. I finished the throw pillows for the family room, I finished the pillows that go in the basement, and made new bedding (new duvet cover, pillow cases, through pillows, and even matching wall decor). I rearranged the family room, dining room, and our bedroom. I also made a car seat canopy, flannel receiving blanket (since this baby is a fall and winter baby), and dressed up a burp rag to match. Pictures coming soon. I still have about 8 more projects that I want to get done before out little guy joins us. Wish me luck!! I think I was trying to keep myself busy while JJ was gone on a rotation. The weather is finally turning fall, which I just love!
