Operation No More Paci

Sunday, I decided it was time to rid Jacob of the pacifier. Before church, when he was in our bedroom playing, I cut the end of his paci off and left both pieces on the table for him to find (I know I am a mean momma). When he walked into the living room, I followed him to see his reaction. He said, "my pappy broke again!"

Back story to this, Jacob really did put a whole in his paci a few months ago. He threw it in the garbage to give to the garbage man like a big boy and did so good until bed time that night. After about an hour of screaming, crying and saying his mouth hurt, Jarred gave in and got him another paci we had stashed. I was furious! I knew after that it would not be easy to get the pacifier away from him, it is like an addiction that an adult would have. I had to stop it cold turkey!

Jacob had several great ideas for the broken paci, "I fix it", "more pappy's" and "buy new one". Every one of which I had to break it to him that no we can't fix, we have no more and we can not buy a new one. He just kinda went with it and held on to his paci all the way to church. He did so good in nursery without it and for the rest of the day for that matter. Here comes the hard part, bed time. He actually did really good! He whined a little bit but went to sleep pretty quickly.

Yesterday went well also. He still had the broken paci and walked around with it that morning. Once he got to my sister's house she put it up and he never asked for it. Last night went great and now we are on day three. I am hoping we are completely over the pacifier. Jacob is becoming such a big boy! Next up, potty training.

Beach Bums

Unfortunately we had to come back to the real world from our vacation at the beach. We had such a good time. Jarred, Jacob and I went down last Tuesday night to meet my parents and sister in PCB. We stayed in a nice condo on Thomas Drive, away from the "strip".

Jacob really enjoyed the beach this year (which made me so happy). He would spend all morning on the beach and then would go up to the room with Daddy for naps to let Mommy get some nice time in the sun. It was a short trip, but better than nothing. I am very thankful to my parents for letting us come crash with them for a few days. Here are several pictures of our fun times!

Happy Tuesday!

I've Been Tagged

Morgan and Shannon tagged me to list six unimportant things that make me happy. Here are the rules: 1) List Six Unimportant Things That Make You Happy. 2) Mention and link to the person who tagged you. 3) Tag six of your favorite bloggers to play along, and comment on their blog to let them know they've been tagged. Here's my list:

1. Milkshakes and ice cream (I am prego)
2. Hot bubble baths (Jarred says I have no "hot" factor, he says my water is always scalding)
3. The sound of the ocean (I am listening to it now, in person)
4. Cold sheets and pillows
5. Covering up in my soft yellow blanket that my friend Christy gave me (I am rude and won't let my friends use it when they come to my house)
6. Turning up music full blast and dancing around singing! (I know I'm weird)

Okay, so now I am tagging my 6:

1. Trina
2. Ashley
3. Crystalyn
4. Rachel
5. Amy
6. Whoever else has nothing better to write about!

Off To The Beach

So as of 4 pm today I will be headed to the beach with little man and hubby. I will post pictures from our fun times when I get back. I know I am not here much so I am sure you will not miss me! Anyway, I will leave you with a picture of little man drinking the water from his splash pad.

That's tasty water Mommy! (No clue where he got "tasty" from)

New Doctor

Today I went to my first appointment with my new Ob/Gyn and she was wonderful!! I absolutely love her. Everything went great and we had our first ultrasound. I am happy to report that there is only ONE baby in my stomach! When the ultrasound tech listened to the heartbeat the baby jumped! It was so funny.

The ultrasound put me at 12 weeks exactly but the doctor decided to put my due date as of December 29 but it was originally December 27 so I am continuing to say the 27th. What is two days really? I am hoping she will induce me before Christmas since I was induced with Jacob. Anyway, the heart rate was 167, which is exactly what Jacob's was the first time we heard his. Any guesses?

Summer Begins

So this past weekend we spent most of our time at the pool. Jacob is getting used to it but hates to wear his swimmies (I know it is not a word but this is what I call them). He refuses to put them on, but I am okay with it since he really does not get near the pool by himself. Hopefully in the next few weeks he will start to like the water more so we can have fun IN the pool. Here are a few pictures from our fun at the pool.
