The husband and I have jumped on the bandwagon and began the South Beach diet yesterday. I hope I can make it through the first two weeks, where it seems like all you can eat is salad and eggs. Have I mentioned Iâ€™m not too fond of eggs?
The house is coming along pretty good. The construction is proceeding a lot faster than we expected. The frame of the house is already up, as well as the windows and roof. Next theyâ€™ll work on setting up the electrical layout and plumbing and after it goes through inspection, weâ€™ll be ready for the drywall and much closer to the end. Looks like only a couple more months before we get to move in!
It was pretty much a quiet weekend, which is always a good thing. I got to spend a lot of time with baby girl on Saturday and although frustrating at times (sheâ€™s starting to throw major tantrums), it was all around a good day. Lots of singing, dancing, laughing and cuddling was involved. Those are the days that make me sad Iâ€™m not able to stay home with her, but at the same time, it gives me more reason to stay motivated and find a way to do just that.
Speaking of tantrums, the girl is only 1 and she has a major temper! Anytime we take something away from her or tell her NO, we get a full out screaming fit. We havenâ€™t quite figured out the right way to handle these situations and itâ€™s definitely a work in progress. Iâ€™ve heard to ignore the tantrum and let her cry it out, or to distract her with another toy, but both have their pros and cons. If youâ€™ve got any tips for how you handled 1 year old tantrums (or are currently handling), please do let me know. I hate to see her throwing these fits, but I donâ€™t want her to get spoiled either.
Have a great week everyone!
