New is an update on Lily and Dakota

It has been a while since i posted an update on her last weigh in, she was 10 lbs 10 oz...doing good. Since she is doing good gaining weight, the Dr said we can take her off the pump during the day and feed her by mouth if we want. We aren’t taking her off all day, just when she isn't napping or just chilling. we go on Friday~April 4th~for her 4 month checkup (can you believe she is 4 months already?) so she will have another weigh in--I'm eager to see how much more she has gained. Lily’s surgery is still scheduled for April 15th
Dakota~~sitting on the potty with his Caprisun (his new favorite juice)

(this is from Tuesday, April 1st--of all days)
On a different note, my son (Dakota) has decided that he no longer wants to wear a diaper. He rips the tabs off his diapers when he does have one on. So i tried to get him to wear a pull up..but that comes off too. He is in underwear or training pants when he is up...we have had one victory...he went pee pee in the potty this morning!! YAY!! and then at nap time, he takes his pull up off and poops on the rug. So we are taking a step forward and a step back..we are dancing in

Update since we started potty training on Monday...we are doing somewhat better...we are still having accidents..but Dakota seems to be more aware that something is happening when the pee pee is running down his legs. And he is running to the potty or running to change his undies or pullup. He gets so excited when he actually goes pee pee in the potty. Potty training is hard work--not just for the child, but also for the mommy; but potty training has a sweet reward: No more diapers (at least for Kota)
