Potty training is interesting

So We have started potty training Michaela. 

So far it has been interesting to say the least. She has successfully pooped a few times on the potty but has only begrudgingly (is this even a word!?!) peed once. She holds it, it mean like all day. And we are pumping her full of water an juice and salty things. And if she does have to go and starts. She stops, just like that. Sometimes is doesn't even hit the floor. So I guess that is nice because I am not mopping up puddles left and right.

The other fun thing about potty training is the outfits. NO pants and Just Fancy Panties. She got her first Hello Kitty this is summer so right now those are the fave.

Today after Nap this was her chosen look 

A sweet shirt from Grandpa
Her tutu from her 1st birthday 
Shiny purple Chucks

So her by the way

Later she added a hat to complete the assemble. 

She is so done with the camera
This pregnancy has bee so different from the other two, mostly it is the heartburn however that is giving me the grief. Since I only have a month and a half to go I will just suck it up and keep putting down the Zantac.

In preparation of the new baby, Marty and George have been busy working in the garage on Michaela's bed. Since the girls are sharing a room I wanted storage beds, so that when they get older and need room to play they still have storage without having to have a dresser. As most people know I would so live in a Pottery Barn Catalog if I could. 
And of course I feel in love with this bed, but so not the price. 
You have got to be kidding me!

But bless the internet and handy husbands. I found this handy little blog that had plans for ... you guessed it an knock off version!!!! 

Right! I know, Love it!!

George has been working out in the garage like a man who eats saw dust and wood glue for every meal. Here are just a few pictures of his manly handy work.

A-MAZ-ING I know!

I can't get over how great it looks and how cool it is that Michaela and eventually our new little girl will have a bed that their Daddy (and Grandpa, Papa and Brother) made.

second side all finished and the front to go!

And really, how hot is a handy husband. They should make a cologne that smells like cut lumber. Right!
