I passed!!

And by the way I passed my other test!! I am sooooo happy ;) I am now a Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer!!

My Good Boy :)

Well, it didn't take very many little spats and Jack is back to his little sweet self :) He is minding when we say no finally. I am soo glad because I was really not enjoying having to spank him.

He now has 5 teeth!! He cut the front top right one 11/17. It is great because he can chew his food lots better. Just in time for his first Thanksgiving dinner :) I am looking so foward to the first holidays with my sweet baby boy!!

Hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving!!

What a little temper!!

Well, the dreaded time has come that we are having to start spatting Jack! Is it normal to do it this early? Any of you experienced moms, please give me some reassurance. He is throwing full blown fits! The worst of them is when we are trying to change his diaper. He acts like we are torturing him or something!! He rolls and rolls and then when I finally hold him down or spat him, he looks at me like I am the meanest mom in the whole world. NOW.. I understand what parents mean when they say it hurts them more because it does!! I would rather take several beatings that have to spank him, but I don't want to raise one of those kids that just do whatever they want to and won't mind. He also is a little defiant these days. If he doesn't get his way or get to do what he is wanting to do, he has a little fit. He has a very strong little personality. He gets his stubborness honest though. He really didn't have a chance in that department between Casey and I :) I would appreciate any advice that any fellow moms can give, because this is hard!!

Also, I though I would blog about the Love Dare. Casey and I bought it after church last week and started it Sunday night. It is amazing how it has already changed several things in our marriage. I am really enjoying doing it together and we are learning a whole lot about each other and where we can improve. I won't spoil the book for those of you who plan to read it, but I wanted to just blog about some of the funny things Casey has said after our daily readings.

On day one, our dare was not to be negative. That is what the few pages we had to ready was about. After I finished reading, I said "Did you get all that?" and he said, "Yeah, I can't talk all day tomorrow!!" We had a good laugh about that!

The next day, after we finished reading, he a said, "Kayla, this book is picking on me. This book is me exactly!!" It was also very funny.

Anyway, it has been a great thing and has brought us closer already. I would recommend it if you had time to read it together. It is fun to see what your dare is for the next day!

Hope everyone is having a good day!!

Bye, Bye :)

Jack waved for the first time this weekend :) We were leaving the Harvest festival and he just raised his little hand and waved. It was soo cute! After that he has done it a few more times. Last night he was in the bathtub and I was saying bye bye and waving and all of the sudden he said bye, bye and waved at the same time! Casey and I were so shocked! It was the cutest thing I have ever seen:) I think that is the first time he has said something and meant to.

Hope everyone is having a good Monday!!
