Well, my friends. Here is another one of my random blog updates. Things have been mucho busy as usual. I think this is my first pregnancy where I hope I make it to at least 38 weeks because my "to do" list is still way too long. Partly my fault---I took the kids swimming three times last week when I should have been finishing projects and doing housework. Oh, but swimming felt so good and was so worth it.

Here is what has been going on since we got home from AZ...

Last Saturday I ran out of diapers. And I was just not wanting to go to the store at all. So I told Adalynn "Sorry. We are out of diapers. You have to wear underwear now." And that was that. I figured if it doesn't work, Jared can go out and get diapers after work. Well, she shocked the you-know-what out of me and has done so well. She has had maybe 2 accidents--and now a week later is pretty much potty trained. She still wears a pull-up at night and nap time, but I'm loving it. First time in 5 1/2 years I haven't had to buy diapers.

I've been busy taking photos of cute kiddos. I don't think I will be doing a session for a bit, but I am just so excited to take lots and lots of our new baby! 

Jared's brother Josh sorta moved in with us--but not really. He moved a lot of his stuff in with us and stayed for a bit, then left to work in LA, then came back. All in preparation to be on (I hope I can announce this) Project Runway. Actually I don't have many details other than he made the show and we will know what happened when the rest of the world finds out. There was a film crew here last week for videos that will be online before the show airs. They filmed Josh with Devin and Adalynn. They are just really short videos about the contestants and their homes/families. Pretty exciting stuff, we all hope he does well!
I mentioned in a previous post that Devin was obsessed with Indiana Jones. I don't think "obsessed" quite describes it though. He really thinks he is Indiana Jones. He worked really hard to fill his pom pom jar and as soon as he did, we bought him a hat, whip and shirt at the party store. He wears it almost everyday. Yesterday I made him a satchel (He hates going to Joanns but when I told him we were going to get stuff to make his satchel we couldn't get in the car fast enough). Now he is set on getting a leather jacket like Indiana. He also makes Adalynn reenact scenes from the movie. Poor Adalynn is usually a bad guy that ends up getting whipped. The other day she was Indiana's dad and was dying. He had to get the cup (in his case a sippy cup) and he saved his dad. Next time they do this I am having the video camera ready because it is so funny.
Can you tell what scene the next picture is from??
Miss Diva...

And I am full term as of yesterday! Which means even though I have three weeks until my due date she can come at any time! Hopefully I will get around to posting pictures of her room next.

I love your random posts:) I just never know where to start! YAY for NO diapers...for a little while at least. How nice that the potty training went so easy. you deserve it especially since you are due soon. That is awesome for Josh. I cannot wait to watch it. oh and Devin. I love that kid. He is such a character! You have to video tape it and then post it on your blog :)
