Another Little Princess has Arrived!

Well as most of you already know I had another little girl! Julia Brooke was born April 18th at 11:05am. Weighing 6 lbs 12 oz and 20 1/2 inches long. Everything went pretty well. I got really sick during my c-section which carried on for the rest of that day. Throwing up wasn't the funnest way to spend the first day with my daughter but at least it passed and other than that we are both doing great. She is healthy and so far a very good baby. So here she is, my beautiful little one.

Eva and Layla were so excited to meet her and have been the best big sisters. They love little Julia so much.

She is such a sweet little baby I just can't get enough of her!

My Dad with his 3 granddaughters.

My Mom is here for 10 days while I'm recovering. I am so thankful she is here to help out. I couldn't have done it with out her.

So we never got a boy but Greg and I are happy to have another little girl in our family and I can already tell she fits in perfectly.

I decided to add some Easter pictures on here too. I kinda felt like this Easter would be just a big blur with me trying to recover but it actually turned out to be a nice weekend. My parents and I colored eggs with the girls.

They also got Easter baskets and had an egg hunt. Eva was a good big sister and helped Layla find most of her eggs. They both had a lot of fun.

I had a good friend offer to take my girls to church for me on Sunday. Eva went so she was the only one in an Easter dress that day. But I can't wait until next Easter when all three of my girls can be in matching dresses.

So that's what we've been up to. A good Easter weekend and a brand new baby girl. Life is good :)

She Did It!

Yes at 26 months little Layla is potty trained! I potty trained Eva before Layla was born and I loved only having one kid in diapers so with there only being a few weeks left before this next one is born I decided to give it a try. I told myself I would give Layla one week and if she wasn't getting it I would back off and go back to diapers for now. So the first few days were good and bad. Layla liked sitting on the potty but just wouldn't go. She just held her pee for hours and hours. This made me really want to keep trying cause I figured if Layla had this good of control then she probably would get it fast if she could get over being scared. So I kept on her everyday and after about 3 days she finally went in the potty. When Layla was done she jumped up and said, "I did it!" It was so cute and I was so proud of her. And that was it, she was potty trained. She had a couple accidents for the next few days but after 6 days she had it down. I'm so proud of her and I'm so glad I will again only have one child in diapers. So here's to you little Layla I knew you could do it :)
