Here's some new baby bump pictures:
I actually started taking it away in the car as our routine is to give Lyla her Nuk and bunny. On the way to work she would sleep a lot of times and then it just became routine to always give it to her. The first couple of days were not fun as she didn't understand why she didn't have her Nuk but luckily with my new vehicle, we have a DVD player and we watched Mickey Mouse and Dora to distract her.
Then last Friday, right before nap time, I gathered up the Nuks in the house and had her say goodbye to all of them and put it in a box for the babies that needed them. She was okay with this and even closed the lid to the box but then asked for it when she was in her crib. She cried for 20 minutes and finally dozed off. When she woke up, she talked about how she gave her Nukers to the babies and she was a good girl!
I figured bedtime was going to be a disaster but she asked for it a couple of times and we talked about it again and she went right down with a fight. I was so proud of her! Every once in a while she will ask for it when she's really tired and we are not at home but she quickly remembers where they are. We are now over 1 week Nuk free and are ecstatic she took to it so easily. Now next Friday she is getting her big girl bed so we will see how this goes!

Last weekend Lyla and I went down to IL for a day trip to visit with my cousins and their families since they were in town. Lyla for some reason was shy the whole time we were visiting and didn't play a lot with her cousin Anne but was able to sneak in a little hug.
The preggers are on the run! My friend Mandy is due in a couple of weeks and me in a couple of months. Jonathan and Lyla are only a few months apart as well so it will be nice to have 2 sets of kids close in age.
This weekend my parents came and helped paint the baby's room and the kids bathroom. I figured if we are painting one room and have everything out, might as well paint too rooms (especially since we had the help)!
New bright bathroom
Lyla will be getting her big girl bed and furniture in 1-2 weeks so we had to make sure everything was ready to move out of her room to the baby's room before that happened. Let's hope she transitions well to the new bed!
On Sunday we finished getting the rooms picked up and together and then worked outside. I got my flowers planted and Matt got his projects done. Now I'm plain tired and need a break for the rest of the night!
