Today I had my 2nd and final sonogram. We were really excited to get to see the baby again, but sad that this is the last time until it arrives. I had an issue a few weeks ago that led the doctor to believe that I might have a low-lying placenta. She said that this would be diagnosed with the sonogram. Well, everything turned out to be perfect! We aren't going to find out the sex of the baby and that was really hard for me today. I was hoping that we would accidentally see, but we didn't. I actually begged Scott to change his mind because I wanted to know. Obviously he didn't give in because we still don't know. I would post some pictures that we got today, but there aren't any good ones. The baby was face down and wouldn't move, so we got a picture of a foot, a thumb, and the spine. We unfortunately didn't get to see it's face :( Scott still says it's a "woman" because it wasn't COOPERATING with letting us get any good shots of it. He thinks he's so funny.

I'm a little over 20 weeks pregnant now! It is going by so fast. I'm feeling good these days and as you can see starting to get a big belly. I can feel the baby kicking all throughout the day now and Scott can even feel it sometimes. We are getting more excited about meeting the baby everyday!
We decided to try to get Grady potty trained in preparation for the new baby. He didn't quite catch on as fast as I thought he was going to but he did love his big boy underwear! It took a good week for him to really grasp the concept. He has it figured out for the most part now, but he still has a few accidents here and there. We heard using a cheerio in the toilet as a sort of target was a good trick. We were out of cheerios but we had plenty of goldfish crackers. Now he loves to go pee-pee on the goldfish and make it swim away. I think the goldfish turned out to be the trick. I'm glad he caught on when he did because I was about to go crazy. I think a dog might be easier to potty train than a kid...at least you can put a dog outside for awhile.
The day of the Superbowl Grady and I spent it in the kitchen making snacks. He helped me make the brownies and cheese dip. He licked the brownie bowl clean and then was ready to follow it up with some cheese dip. He had a blast, but was a mess afterwords. He went straight from the counter to the bath! He didn't get to watch the game with us though. The game didn't start until about 10:30 or 11:00 our time. It was a long night, but a good game.
Scott had to go to Atlanta for a conference back in January. He had a good time in the states and I think he ate himself sick. I talked to him the first day about 1:00 and he had already eaten McDonalds, Dairy Queen, and Chick-fil-a! The whole week he was there was pretty much based around food. He did however take a break from eating long enough to pick us up some presents. He got Grady a Cowboys jersey. This was of course right before the play-off game. Grady actually liked what Scott had gotten him and when game day came he was dressed and ready. Unfortunately, we didn't get the outcome that we were hoping for. He did look cute though!!
