Haven't written in a while

I guess it's been a while since I've made a blog entry...and so much has happened since the last. First things, I FINALLY got Mya weaned. This happened about a month ago, it was a very trying week for both of us, but it was time. It had been time for a while. The first 4 nights were the worst, but then she started understanding. Since then she's been sleeping much better at night. She still occasionally asks to "urse", but quickly forgets. She hasn't asked in a while until yesterday and today. I've been working more lately so I think she's just been needing some extra time with me. She's finally slept through the night about 6 times or so since then. Which is fantastic. I'm finally able to sleep in my own room for most of the night. She still occasionally cries through the night, but it has improved so much. Secondly, Mya had her first overnight with Gamma Pam. She did fantastic. I had to work a couple days so she went to Circleville by herself with my mom. Steve and I then went up to Circleville for the weekend for Aaron's wedding reception. By the end of the weekend she was ready to come "home". She loves to go and play, but she really seems to miss being home after a few days. Thirdly, we are working on selling our home. We just really need some more room...definitely another bathroom! We are currently working with a couple trying to come to an agreement on the selling price. We're really nervous about it. I really love this's where Mya first came home. I have a lot of really great memories here, and there are so many things that I love about it. But, it's really getting to be time to move on. Steve and I really need to find a home together. I'm nervous about how Mya will adjust, although I'm sure I'm worrying for no reason. She'll adjust just fine. Lastly, we are expecting another baby the end of January. Which is why we are in such a need to get a bigger home. I really want this baby to have his/her own room. Mya really enjoys her room and it's good for her to have her "own" space. I don't want to stick this baby in our room or with her! Plus, since we didn't do a nursery with Mya I'm kind of eager to have one this time around. Especially since this is very likely to be our last child. We are all guessing that this one will be a boy because this pregnancy has been SOOOOO different from Mya's. I have been so nauseated...what an awful feeling. I took one of the urine intelligender tests just for fun this week, and it said BOY. It'll be interesting to see if it is accurate or not. I won't find out by ultrasound until the 20th week or so, about 2 more months. I'm currently a little over 10 weeks. I had my first ultrasound yesterday. Everything looked great, we could see the little legs and arm buds...those 3D ultrasounds are crazy! The heart rate was about 170. My midwife (whom I LOVE) said everything looked great. She was able to check nuchal translucency (which is a measure for Down's syndrome) and thought it looked great.
We're preparing for Mya's 2 year birthday party next weekend. I can't believe she will be 2 already. She's grown up so much. She's really been really good lately, although rather clingy since I've been at work quite a bit. We're doing a Yo Gabba Gabba theme and Foofa will be there. It will be a lot of fun. Most everyone that she loves will be there. We're able to have some of her friends here this year, too. I'm just amazed at how quickly the past 2 years have come and gone! But, what a great 2 years!!!!
