little update on us

Sorry that I haven't posted in awhile......been crazy around here!!! I will post updated pics soon but here is what is going on with us:

is out of school for the life is in full swing! We had a HOUSEFUL of teens on Sunday evening (remind me never to agree to "mom, can I have a few friends over?"!!! The street outside our house looked like we were having a major party....but mostly because the state law says that new drivers can only have 1 passenger in their basically everyone brought their own car....) Our big screen tv survived the teens playing Wii.....

Mason is now potty-trained (WAHOO!!!!) He has been going on the potty for months now but we were never consistent with it and I didnt ever put full blown effort into the "training" part.....well on Memorial day something snapped in me and I decided to do COMMANDO potty-training...meaning..all or nothing!! I told him that we were done with diapers and we went for it!!! He hasnt worn a diaper since that day! He is doing awesome....with occasional accidents, but those are very rare now!!! Yippee, there is a new found freedom, yet there is also a new paranoia in me that has developed....I am constantly asking "do you have to go potty?" turning back now!! YIPEE!!!!
Mason also just ended his first soccer season.....He loved it!! He starts Tee-ball this coming weekend!!

Teagan~ turned 5 mos old!! She is currently able to roll over from back to tummy! She has not figured out the tummy to back roll-over yet and gets a little frustrated. She has one bottom tooth that has popped through and the other is just about to break through! I have a major problem with this girl right now.....she refuses to take a bottle!! I have been trying for the past 2 weeks to get her to take either breastmilk or formula in the is my own fault......she was taking a bottle previously but I got lazy and since we hadnt gone anywhere, I "forgot" to give her one...then I wnet out to dinner one night, came home 2 hrs later and the poor child was SCREAMING!! Daddy had tried to give her a bottle (although I thought it was his bottle-making ability at first (he has been known to make them too cold or not to even measure right))Since that night, I have tried different types of bottles, different people giving her the bottle, bottles with breastmilk, bottles with formula.....NOTHING! She closes her mouth up tight and refuses, if you try to force the bottle in she SCREAMS! I was hoping to have her weaned by 6mos of age....looks like she has other plans! She is also not warming up to the idea of other foods! We have only had a few successful cereal feedings (one of them being the picture below)...she has no interest in food....I have to say that this child is my STUBBORN one....
We are having Teagan's baptism this weekend!
As a family~ we have a vacation planned for the end of July!!! We will be travelling to florida....should be an interesting trip with a teen (possibly 2), a toddler, and an infant. We are very excited to spend 6 days on the beach!! Jeff's sister and her family are going also........Mason is crazy for his cousins, so he will have a ball!!

Oh yeah~ I have been doing weight watchers (well sort of).....I have lost a total of 11 lbs (my goal is 50....20 before the florida trip) I did really well the 1st 2 weeks but lately I have totally slacked off, but the scale is still slowly moving down. My reward for the 1st 10 lbs is a I reached that goal this to get my feet pretty tomorrow while mason is in school!!!!
