The Play Gym Arrives

Five days and counting. Jennifer is going to be induced on Monday, if she doesn’t go into labor before then. I can’t believe it’s already here. My parents are flying in Sunday to help us out with Abby and Emily while we are at the hospital. This week has gone by fast and Monday will be here before I know it.

It’s been a pretty busy week. On Thursday, Jennifer took the girls to the beach in order to get their picture taken by a photographer friend of ours. She gave us the pictures digitally, so Jennifer will be putting them up on dotPhoto or one of the other picture sites so that anyone who wants one can order a copy.

On Friday, the play gym that we ordered arrived and they started to install it. They ran into a snag while installing it: our back yard isn’t level and they had to use brink pavers to set part of this up. We weren’t comfortable with that, so we are gong to get that part of the yard leveled and they are going to come back and set the play gym back into the leveled area. So, even though it’s put together in today’s picture, there’s more work to be done.

The last two days Abby has been going to gymnastics in order to get her out of the house. She’s been really liking it and she’s been telling me a lot about her exploits on the “high bar”. She told me today that a clown came and painted their faces.

We’ve had great success on the Emily potty training front. She’s been dry for two days now. She gets up in the morning and goes right to the potty and tinkles. She now will tell us that she needs to “go poop on the potty” and runs off into the bathroom. I’m pretty impressed that she’s caught on so fast. Hopefully we won’t have a relapses once the new baby arrives.
