Red Chief: Never stops talking. We're still not sure what he thinks about the baby, but he seems to be getting more positive after reading several books and looking at his own baby pictures.
Potty training: That's kind of taken a back seat since he had a little falling-in incident and lost interest. I'm hoping he won't want to start again until after the baby comes, anyway; getting up and down isn't my favorite activity at the moment.
Baby: I'm 32 weeks pregnant and still due the last day of May. Everything's going great, except for my low iron. I had low iron with Red Chief, too, and it didn't matter how much I took, it was still low. Any tips? I already switched to cast iron cookware and I'm taking my iron pills with vitamin C.
Yard: Imagine my surprise this spring when I stepped outside to see that most of our weeds had disappeared over the winter! The jungle that was our backyard is slowly becoming civilized; evidently some of our efforts have paid off. I can even send Red Chief outside to play now without too much fear of him getting poked and prickled.
