We had a big ultra sound on Tuesday and found out that we are having a little GIRL! We are so excited. Kolton is very pleased to be getting a baby sister.
We also found out on Monday that I had some major infections in my gall bladder, and it had to be removed. What a week. It all started early Monday morning when I woke up with severe back pains. I thought it was just from being pregnant so I went and tried to sit up on the couch to sleep, but then the pains moved into my upper abdomen. Finally after like 2 hours trying to ignore these pains I told Kodee that something wasn't right and we needed to go to the ER. Just what we wanted to do at 3:00 in the morning. So I called my mom to come and sit with Kolton so we wouldn't have to drag him along. When we got to the ER, and I explained my problem they sent me right up to family birth to make sure I wasn't in labor. Now I have been in labor before and this was so much worse. So we get up there and they made sure the little one was fine, and then they told me that they thought it was my gall bladder and that I would be having an ultra sound done at 7:00 to check stuff out. Sure enough, gall stones and big ones. One was blocking the passage and so the bacteria wasn't able to flow through and out of my body, but was instead building up. So then I had to wait for the surgeon to come and talk to me. My doctor also came to talk to me and assured me that everything was going to be okay. It was very scary. I have never really had a surgery like this, and I am 20 weeks pregnant. What a joke. By 6:00 Monday evening I was out of surgery and was doing fine, and the baby was doing great. She didn't have any complications from the meds. So I was discharged from the hospital Tuesday morning just in time to go and check in for my ultra sound. It was not fun at all. They offered to reschedule, but we just wanted to know, and make sure the baby was really okay. The techs. were very cautious of all of my little cuts. It was a very painful ultrasound.
So after all of that we now know that the baby is a little girl, and she is very healthy and looks great.

So it finally happened, Kolton is now 100% potty trained. I know, I know, it seems like he should have been potty trained a long time ago, but it isn't the easiest thing to do. We told him that when he did it for 1 week we would take him to Chucky Cheese, he loves it there. And about 10 days after we started the process, he went one week with no accidents. It is so nice to get him out of diapers. Now in 5 months we can start buying diapers again, but for now we are done!!!
