Heather: Yeah, it's been a while. After that teaser of "watch this space," nothing for... three months? So here's a quick update.
1. Madeleine is virtually potty trained. She went today twice and told me after she'd gone. The second time, she actually brought it to me as I was on the phone in the kitchen (with Daddy, no less). How did this happen? The magic of nudity--or at least no pants. And I think the cloth training pants helped a bundle to start, so she'd know when she was wet. Sure, the super absorbency of the paper diapers nowadays helps UNTIL you're trying to potty train.

2. Dale III is mobile and thus requires much more attention. When I could just set him down and was pretty sure he'd stay there, we were okay. Now he can get from one end of the house to the other in mere seconds. At least I don't have to carry him indoors quite as much.
He's also virtually weaned. He's younger than Maddie was, but I need a longer break than I had before. He's a year old and has figured out sippy cups pretty well, though he shows a preference for his sister's.

3. Third pregnancy is fine. Doc wants me to come in for an ultrasound to confirm dates since I don't have a menses date to use; I figure I've got nothing to lose by humoring her. *I* know when I got pregnant; if she wants to prove it that way, so be it.

That being said, I'm going to spend the next half hour on the Magdalene post I've promised the faithful (persistent, patient, forgiving) reader.
