We have created a monster!!

So I am VERY stubborn! Guess what? So is my husband! Why did we think it was ok to have an equally as stubborn son?!? Ok we didnt really have a choice (and of course we wouldnt want tp trade him for anything/one!) but man he is sooooo stubborn and the worst thing is that its sooooooo cute! He has suddenly learned this really annoying and cute high pitch squeal. Im not sure why, but it started about 2 weeks ago and he seems to do it when he is annoyed or wants us to do something different (ie hold him a certain way, stop changing him, give him his toy etc!). We have been laughing at it because it caught us by surprise and I love hearing the change in his "language" but I think we are just making it worse. He now knows that we think its funny and will do it when he is happy too. I asked my mom how she dealt with me at this age when I became so demanding and she said she just ignored the behavior. I tried that and I got screamed at more! We seriously have our hands full with this one!

Jeans DO make the girl!

So I am finally feeling like my old self again. Lately I haven't felt like myself, I have been feeling like some frumpy, fat, ugly person (I can't even say woman b/c I feel non-feminine). I am really upset about this weight thing and refused to buy clothes in a bigger size. Well a cool front came through and gave me no choice but to buy new jeans that actually fit! I forgot how much I missed jeans!! Or really anything but stupid goucho pants! I can't explain it but wearing jeans make me feel like I am pretty and non frumpy and even kind of girly. I have also joined Weight Watchers and man is it an eye opener! The program has really showed me that I don't eat as good as I thought I was. I have already lost 5lbs and I am hoping that it will keep coming off!

On another note, Jacob is getting teeth! The first one broke though last Wednesday and the second one is breaking through today. No more gummy thay are going to be teeth smiles!
