July GBOMB

Welcome to the good, the bad, and what's been on my brain for the month of July.

G O O D
+I announced my pregnancy! It's always such a relief to let everyone know and not have to try so hard to hide my ever present nausea. Haha. But also, more importantly, to share in the excitement with all of our friends and loved ones. We are so lucky to have so many supportive people in our lives. We can't wait to have this baby join us the end of January!
+We went to Disneyland twice as a family this month and had so much fun. On our last trip, Taylor was finally tall enough to ride Radiator's Springs Racer in Cars Land. The not so good part was Taylor was terrified. I really thought he would love it. Regardless, the rest of our day was fun.
+Andrew's parents were in the area for a conference so they got to come over to see us every night. We just wish they could have been here longer.
+Andrew turned 32. A few days before his birthday I surprised him with dinner at the Blue Bayou (the restaurant that overlooks the Pirates of the Caribbean ride). Andrew has always wanted to eat there and it was extremely delicious.

+We attempted potty training. We made it about two days before I gave up. Taylor just has no interest. I might try again soon. Someone convince me that we can do it.
+I've been on Zofran for nausea which doesn't completely take away all the sickness that comes with pregnancy, but it definitely takes the edge off. There was about a week where I was without Zofran and it was completely miserable. It definitely made me appreciate my Zofran even more.
+Pregnancy is just a lot of lying around and letting the kids watch movies all day. I feel pretty unproductive and each day melts into the next until the whole month has gone by in a blur.

+When will I feel like a normal person again? With Taylor and Olive, I had nausea until about 20 weeks. So I guess only like 6 weeks until it subsides? Hopefully? I'm just tired of being a boring mom that lays on the couch all day while the kids watch far too much TV. I'm also tired of being tired, but pretty sure that's not going away for the remainder of my life.
+Are Taylor and Olive getting a little brother or little sister? I'm so curious. I'm pretty convinced that it's a boy, but that probably makes it even more likely that it's a girl.
