Big Improvements

Well, things have sure changed since I've started taking these pills! I feel much better and happier! I never knew that I could be this happy in life! It's been amazing and Dave and I are enjoying our family time together much, MUCH more! I feel like I'm on cloud nine most days and it's great :)
We've decided that eventhough we wanted to move this coming summer, it's not going to be possible. We've decided to wait an extra year in order to save up for a bigger down payment and be more stable. We're also talking about expanding our family again! I have really wanted to start trying again, but I know that I have to make sure we're actually ready. We have to be stable and make huge decisions! If we decide to have another baby, we will definetly need a bigger car, so we are officially selling ours!! I really hope we can get a good deal on an older GMC Suburban because they are exactly what I have longed for :) So once we have our second child and get our bigger vehicle I think we'll be ready for the house :):):) Amazing, how far I've been able to come this last month. BUT I must admit one thing... I want to be on these pills for at least another 2-4 months before we start trying again because I want it to take it's full effect before I stop them for getting pregnant. I don't want to get depressed this bad again ESPECIALLY when I'm pregnant.
 
Anyways, our friends Andrew and Erin just had a beautiful baby girl this morning! She is about 4 pounds 3 ounces and almost 6 WEEKS early... our smaller hospital normally sends these premature babies to Vancouver for better attention, but we haven't heard back from them yet if they're going or not yet. Erin had lots of issues during her pregnancy like high blood pressure so they had to deliver their baby early. She was due Sept.25. I pray that all is well for them and their new baby and that she will improve in her condition and they will all be home sooner rather than later!!!
I'm potty training Gabby right now! She has been doing OK. the first day she peed TWICE on the potty! now she doesn't really want to! I'm really confused on how to teach her. I try to get her to sit and pee, but sometimes she will get up and pee, rahter than sit and do it. She gets a prize after she uses the potty, but she expects it BEFORE she actually pees. I tell her " You must pee before I give you your prize" but she gets pissed off and runs away. What do I do to show her that peeing on the potty is good? I have celebrated sooo much everytime she does it... she just doesn't get the fact that she does good when she pees on it... any suggestions???

I\'m so glad to hear that everything has turned around for you! You sound so happy & re-energized.

Abram actually completely refuses to potty train at this point so I\'ve decided to put it off for a while longer because I don\'t want him to get a negative experience from it. Sorry I can\'t be more help!
