Here are a few updates:
1. Little L LOVES his new preschool!!!!! I am sooo happy! The very first day the director introduced him to the other kids, he went over to them said hi, gave me a kiss, said "bye mama" and was off and running. He didn't care I was leaving. It kind of breaks my heart, but I know it's better that he isn't screaming when I leave him. He really loves playing with other kids and is so outgoing. I think he gets that from his daddy. He certainly didn't get it from me.
2. On the potty training front we are doing pretty good. He can wear his cars underpants around the house and more often than not he makes it to the potty in time. Of course sometimes he makes himself go so he can have an M&M :) He has even been able to go at my mom's house which is awesome. Now we need to work on him going at Preschool (which I know they will work with him on) and get him to go in public. But I am pretty proud of him so far. Every time he goes potty he says "me make mama happy" it's too cute! He also got to call daddy the other day and tell him he went potty. He was so very excited. He took the phone from me and started walking around the living room talking to daddy. It was too cute.
3. Speaking of my amazing husband. I swear it just amazes me that an email, a skype conversation, a facebook post or a phone call can make any day that much better. We are finally winding down this dang deployment and kicking its butt! He truly is an amazing guy and he is my rock. His strength and his love is what keeps me going even through the tough days, and helps me find the strength within my self to get done what needs to be done. I cannot wait for the day when I can be in his arms again.
4. Our sweet baby E......oh geeze. Well I have to say she is one of the happiest babies I have ever seen. We are still dealing with her wheezing. Now she has another ear infection. :( It seems any time Little L gets a cold, she gets an ear infection. We went and saw the pulmonologist today. What they want to do, because no one has any idea what is going on, is to admit her to All Children's Hospital tomorrow. They will then do a swallow test to make sure she isn't getting formula into her lungs, then we will start ruling out other causes and see if we can find the reason for her wheezing. Thankfully my mother will be watching Little L for us and I will be able to stay at the hospital with Baby E. I am just hoping that they can figure this out quickly. I would rather not stay in the hospital very long, but I will do what needs to be done for our little girl to be better. We are just soooo ready for her to be healthy again. I think she has been to more doctors in her 6 months of life than my husband and I have been combined. It just makes me so sad to think of what she must be going through. I just wish I could take whatever it is away and make her better without having to go to the hospital, but I just can't. We've tried everything else. I get stressed out and I need to remember to be calm so that I don't stress the kids out. I have reminded Little L that Grandma will pick him up tomorrow, but that as soon as we are done with Baby E's doctors I will be back to get him. I hope he understand, I think he does. He is getting a lot better at vocalizing his feelings lately. His speech is improving every day and he talks non stop.
So, that is what is going on in our lives lately. I will be happy once Baby E's wheezing is figured out and we can come home. I will be happy once our lives are back to normal and we can focus on homecoming. I have a lot to get done before that amazing day comes.
