before I watch Walking Dead

I thought that the Zofran wasn't working, or that I didn't need it anymore (because come on I'm 18 weeks along!) so when I ran out yesterday, I didn't panic and call for another refill.  I really, really wish I had.  I've thrown up 3 times today (so far) and have been completely miserable.  I can't eat, because I can't hold anything down.  There is one silver lining though--every time I throw up, I call Ruby to come in and "help" me.  She is so sweet. She rubs my back and gets me toilet paper to wipe my face, all the while telling me "it's okay mommy" "you'll feel better" and then pretending to throw up with me.  Anyways, it's cute.  Still not worth it though, I'm calling to get more Zofran tomorrow.

We're starting the potty training adventure.  Or rather, Ruby decided that she wanted to wear panties and go potty--because Eliza does.  Peer pressure is the key.  She's been wearing panties for 3 or 4 days now, with Pull-ups while she sleeps.  And NO accidents.  It's still early, and I'm not taking it too seriously--I had no plans to potty train right now, so if this is just a weird week long fluke, that's okay, we can do it later.  She's so proud of herself, and the sight of her little bottom in Minnie Mouse panties just kills me.  This picture is from the first day--now the potty always stays in the bathroom.

Kyle continues to take care of me and Ruby constantly.  I felt so bad today---he made an awesome dinner of chicken and potatoes and I could hardly eat a bite.  We celebrated his 29th birthday last week with a kid-free dinner at Texas Roadhouse and cake at The Chocolate.

He was thrilled with the present I bought him--a top-of-the-Walmart-line garbage can.  Romantic!  It actually is really awesome and I knew he's been reeaallly wanting it but couldn't justify spending actual money on a nice garbage can.  It has upped our quality of life greatly.

Every day Ruby wakes up and begs to hang out with Eliza.  Celia tells me that Eliza does the same thing.  We comply because Celia and I love to be together.  The girls are best friends and it just makes my heart happy.

Yesterday we went bowling with the Broadbents and the Robbins.  It was Ruby's first time and she loved it.
It's so fun that she is getting old enough for these new experiences.  Next I want to take Eliza and Ruby to the Nickelcade.  The husbands are skeptical, but Celia and I know that our little girls will absolutely LOVE putting nickels into the games, pushing buttons randomly, and buying prizes with their tickets.

Last Friday was my 10,000th day.  Kyle keeps track of these kinds of things.  He surprised me with 10,000 calories worth of my favorite candy.  He calculated it down to the half egg.  That dish has 19.5 eggs in it!  I love him.
