Been A While

Oh my it's been a while since I've written on here!

So much has been going on.

The school year is done. Paul did very well in his studies. I got a 4.0... but I was only taking 6 credits, so it wasn't huge. We're finally done babysitting the boy we were watching. We're glad for that. He didn't like being away from his mommy, Paul hated watching him, he cried so much, Anna wanted to be babied extra when he was around, we were only paid 130 dollars in the whole semester... it was a real mess. So that stress is off from our backs, aside from the fact that my student loans were sent into collections WRONGFULLY. Ugh. The stress.

On the bright side of things, Anna is growing so tall. 2T is out of the window. She's fully in 3T and she wears some 4T. Her hair is growing longer and it's curly! She's so bright. She counted to 8 randomly the other day. She loves to pretend to count most of the time, "One, two, three, six, seven, eight!" hahaha. So she hasn't counted all the way to eight since, but I'm proud nonetheless!

With potty training, she's doing SO WELL! She's been going potty on her own for several days now, telling me when she needs to go potty (both pee and poop) and even when I put her in a diaper, she wants to go in the potty. :D I'm so proud!

I'll add a picture of her that I really loved. (Of course I love them all, but this one I love as well!)

I should also add that I'm done breastfeeding. Anna still asks, but now it's getting painful and unenjoyable. Her teeth dig into me and she sucks until it hurts then she pulls my hair. And it really isn't a painful decision, either. We lasted 2 1/2 years. That's no small feat. Anna is healthy and growing. I'm sure she's getting her vitamins (she gets Nemo gummies). So, I'm proud of how long we nursed. I still get my cuddles at night when we cosleep. =)

Ugh! I had my loans wrongfully reported as well!! From NW's Perkins Loan office. And unfortunately there was nothing I could do to remove the complaint on my PERFECT credit report!!! So pissed!!!! *FUMING*

Wow...the end to lots of things! You need to give yourself a HUGE pat on the back for lasting 2.5 years on the nursing!!!
Babysitting can be the biggest headache...sometimes the parents are worse than the kids. I hope to never go back to those days.

Have a great weekend!
