I've been a little slow at posting lately. There's not really a lot
happening, but there will be more in the next couple of weeks.

Tomorrow we have a consultation with Trystan's surgeon, and will
hopefully have a date for his next surgery shortly after. Trystan seems
to have bounced back fine from his bowel obstruction a month ago, and I
think he's re-gained all of his weight. We thought he was over 14
pounds before he got sick, but then weighed in at 12lbs 14oz a week
after his surgery. Our not-very-exact bathroom scale has weighed him in
at 15 pounds on two separate occaisions over the weekend, so he's at
least in the ballpark. I am hoping that the surgery will be scheduled
soon-we have at least 6 weeks to wait after this one before the "last"
one to repair the imperforate anus. I'm starting to really look forward
to poopy diapers!

Speaking of poopy diapers, Charlotte's potty training took a giant leap
forward over the last month. It seemed to really help her when I went
back to work, and she and Trystan were both going to daycare together.
We're now counting accidents by the week instead of by the day. She
hasn't had a true poopy accident in several weeks now (there have been a
couple of close calls that involved a change of pants, but that's it).
Well, not exactly true-she had one at the pool a week and a half ago.
Luckily, she was wearing a swim diaper at the time, so we didn't cause
any major disturbance to the other swimmers (yucky, though). She has
rarely wet the bed for the last 6 months or so-maybe 1-2 times a month.
I still have a disposable pull-up in the diaper bag for an emergency,
but we also travel with a clean pair of undies, and haven't needed it.

Now that she's essentially potty trained, she will be able to move up to
the 3-year old room after her birthday this week. She turns 3 on
Friday! Our baby girl is looking and acting more and more like a kid
and less and less like a baby every day.

Amazing how they grow up so fast. Congrats on the potty training. I know it makes a real difference.
