We’ve dabbled into potty-training in recent weeks. I did the 3-day bootcamp thing complete with E running around partially naked and also trying underwear all while my hubby was at work and we were cooped up at home. The good news is that E has his potty routine down pat and is very particular about each step (P.S. he’s 24 months). But we’ve only had ONE success so far, and it was only after my hubby took him for the first time.

We revisited our favorite peach orchard this week for their children’s program. The weather was actually fall-like – and gorgeous – and the paper mache craft was so pretty! E came away with 15 peaches and a belly full of peach ice cream. We also enjoyed another fabulous peach milkshake and peach cider donuts before we headed home. 🙂

We attended our last toddler dance class of the summer. They’ll start back up in October, so I may be able to take my babies again while on maternity leave! (Everyone seems to park their newborns against the wall – you can see a few in the background).

I broke down and ordered a maternity belt for extra belly support now that I’m 32.5 weeks. Before you laugh, it’s totally justified – I have a cadaver bone in my spine holding my sacrum and lumbar together, with bone grafted from my hip surrounding the fusion (and lots of painful scar tissue), and that area bears all the weight! The belt is not cheap at Target, but I got it on eBay for $19. (And got eBay dollars. And an Ebates rebate.) Worth it. I wore it all day Wednesday and Thursday, and I was not in excruciating pain by evening. I still ice the area a lot, but it definitely offers extended support. And I’m not even being endorsed to say that.

On Thursday, we gallivanted around the library’s summer carnival as a culmination of their summer reading program. We met up with one of my friends and her two sweet kids, too!
