Please don't abandon my blog...I promise that I will write!

While I have been silently making blog posts in my mind...unfortunatly those posts did not make it to this page. I apologize and promise to recommit. I swear I have a good excuse though....I have been insanely busy, out of town, tired, pregnant, mother to a toddler, etc....

Without recaping all of the news thoughout the last month, let me touch on a couple of exciting new changes in my life. First of all: I have officially survived the first trimester!! (**heroic music ringing in the background) I am currently 16 weeks pregnant (I think) and due to have baby number two on December 30, 2008. To make this the ultimate Christmas gift, Aaron and I have decided not to find out the sex of the baby until the big day. So, send in your votes and together we can await the arrival of baby BOY OR GIRL Lampano.

Next: WE GOT A NEW CAR!!!! WAHOO!!!! WIPEE!!! HORRAY!!!!! Aaron and I are finally retiring the "hand me down minivan" given to us by the in-laws. On Monday we purchased a Chrysler Town and Country LIMITED edition. This car has all the bells and whistles: heated heats, remote everything, rear climate controls, built-in latch system for the car seats, leather interior, captain seats, etc...
The best part is this: the KBB value on this car is$10,000-$11,000 but aaron and I paid a happy $7500! The car is in great condition (engine included) and we are feeling really blessed to have found such a deal.

Finally, Aaron, Elijah, Baxter, and I went on a really fun camping trip to Deception Pass Last week. Without going into too much details I will say it was very fun! Eli was great and the weather was awesome! Pictures of this trip can be found on the right side of the blog in a slideshow.

One last thought/question: I am thinking about beginning the potty training (I shouldn't ignore Eli's cues any longer) any suggestions???

SO happy to hear you're going to be back in blog-land! :) As for ignoring E's cues... um... don't get me started on D's. To give you some insight, why don't you visit my family blog (not the sariqd one.) That will tell you allllll you need to know about potty-training boys. Seriously.



muwahahhahahhahahahhaha....

Hey Rosanna! I just found your blog, you guys are looking great! Potty training is crazy stuff! I had a girl so I don't know about boys but I found the book "Diaper free before 3" really interesting. Plus Books help alot! Evelyn was doing great, then she slipped back and then my mom sent a couple of potty books and now she's not even mad about washing her hands...she has to wash her hands like 50 times a day! Oh, It kind of annoying, but a little catchy there's a movie called, "Go, Potty GO!" It's with Paige and Parker Panda... Evelyn really liked it and I found it at the library. Anyway, It's great to "see you" Even if I was your roomate for only a little while.

Hey! Elora was potty trained at 26 months, but I hear girls are much easier than boys so I wouldn't presume to give you any advice.
