Cheese Faces

I don't know who taught my kids what to do when we tell them to say "Cheese" for a photo, but I think we need to work on it.

This is what I get...  
Of course, Henry can't really be held responsible for it, but it looks like he's already on his way to the same fate as his big brother...
Though Jaxon did get it right this time, and I'd say he's pretty dang cute!
Oh, and here's what happens when Jaxon tries to dress himself...we'll have to work on that too!

Potty Trained

I think it's safe to say that Jaxon is potty trained!  He comes and lets me or Devin know when he needs to go.  We didn't use soda to make him go a lot, we just gave him a treat each time for a reward.  That kid loves chocolate, but he thinks soda is "hot" and he says, "I no wike it." when he tries it.  Today is the sixth day without any accidents.  It took 2 weeks--not too bad!

6 Month Stats

I can't believe Henry is already 6 months old!  He is sitting up, rolling all around, scooting backwards, and eating some solids.  He doesn't sleep through the night yet, but we're working on it.  He loves baths, music, being outside, and mostly, his brother.  He is such a joy to have in our home.  We love him so much!

His stats:  
Weight:  18 pounds 12 ounces, 83%
Height:  26 5/8 inches, 46%
Head:  Forgot to write it down...

Having sex can be good for your health

Making time for a little romance could be good for your health, according to Dr. Michael Roizen with the Cleveland Clinic.

And, don't skip the sex!

"Humans maybe are the most sexual species of all," said Roizen.

He added, "Men who have sex three times a week have a 50 percent reduction in heart attacks and strokes, compared to their peers."

Women can benefit too, he said.

"For women, it's quality. So if you have high-quality sex, the amount of time you want it, it's two to eight years younger in both feeling, looking," said Roizen.

A good sex life also is healthy for the mind -- Roizen said for most people, boosting their romantic encounters from once a month to once a week is the happiness equivalent of getting a $50,000-a-year raise.

No accidents today and he pooped in the toilet!!!

Potty Training Update

It has been a week and we have made major progress!  Jaxon is doing so good at going potty in the toilet.  He tells us when he needs to go and only had 1 accident today and 1 yesterday.  

But...when it comes to pooping, he just won't go on the toilet!  It's frustrating (but we can't show it).  He'll be sitting on the toilet having lots of gas but insisting he doesn't need to go.  So, we let him get down, he goes outside, and literally 1 minute later, he'll come in a say he went in his underwear.  This has happened like 3 times.  Devin and I have come to the conclusion that he Jaxon is uncomfortable going in front of people.  I have tried leaving him on the toilet to give him privacy, but he doesn't like me to leave either...  We also think he is just comfortable going in the back yard.  

So, I think I am going to put his potty chair on the porch in the backyard to get him used to going on the chair in an environment he is used to and then try moving it into the house.  Though, he does like to go on the big toilet (with a little kid seat so he doesn't fall) so I am not sure if he'll want to go on his little potty...  I don't know what else to do!  Any ideas???

Bachelor - My 2 Cents

Okay, I don't want to waste too much of my time on this, but I do have a few things to say...

First, poor Melissa!  Obvious reasons, I don't need to list them.  She's super sweet and she'll find someone.  She did a great job of sticking up for herself and bringing up good points like, "You chose Melissa, but you're not willing to fight for Melissa."  Good girl!

Second, I was SO mad at Jason when he broke up with Melissa and said he loved Molly, but after thinking it through, I'm not so upset.  

Here's why:  
I think it's lame he says he's just "following his heart" because that really isn't the reason.  Anyone who says the aren't in love with someone anymore, whether it be a girlfriend or wife, might say that.  That's just an excuse that people don't really like to challenge, "Oh, following your heart, huh?  That's stupid."  People don't think it's bad to "follow your heart," so that's just what he calls it.  Their (Melissa and Jason's) relationship just wasn't what he thought it would be, so his "heart" changed his mind.  And, I thought it was dumb for him to say he can't control his mind from having thoughts about Molly.  Um, married men better know how to control their thoughts!  So he better learn how if he wants to keep a wife.

Truly, and Jason did say this one time in one of the after interviews and I totally agree with it, he said something like, had this been real life, he would not have stopped dating any of the final 3 girls when he was forced to because he wasn't ready to make the decision, but of course, there were time constraints on the show.  He said he would have kept dating them until he was ready to make a good decision.  I agree.  I think the show, which it's not the show's "fault," it's just the rules, forced him to make a decision before he was ready and it was such an extreme decision, when he realized it wasn't the right one for him, he needed to go back on it.  

Of course it sucks he didn't make the right decision the first time, but I do think it's better he fixed it sooner than later.  I don't know if he really gave Melissa and his relationship a fair shot (being in a long distance relationship is tough enough, let alone having to keep it a secret), but he thinks he did.  I don't quite understand how the "chemistry changed..."

I don't know, it can be argued either way.  "He should stick with Melissa, he proposed to her."  Or, "It's better he didn't marry her and then change his mind."  Though, I partly think he proposed because that was his purpose, to find a wife.  His plan was to propose, not just find someone to date.  He carried out his plan in the amount of time the show allowed, but it wasn't really enough time.  But, once again, had it been in the real world, he wouldn't have chosen so quickly.  

I don't know if I explained what I really mean clearly, but I shouldn't spend too much time on this!

Anyway, why do we all care so much???!!!  Dang reality tv, sucks me in every time!

Anyone up for America's Next Top Model?  Season premiere was on tonight!  Oh, and American Idol--love it!
