The new glasses are here. (I know, I was shocked they came so fast too.) I thought I'd look SO cute, and totally different, but today when my brother saw me he said, "I was wondering why you were wearing your glasses. Oh, they're new...." Yeah, such a bummer! :P

I'm also losing my hair. I've ALWAYS had super thick hair, but now, it's only super thick in the back. With Cameron I lost my hair almost immediately, and it was at the perfect thickness. This time?? Well, it's been falling out for a few weeks now, and I have a HUGE bald spot on the top of my head that I try to cover, but my mom noticed it the other day. I guess my cover-up isn't as good as I thought it was. I may end up looking like my grandpa if this continues.
My grandpa's house is no longer the house I knew growing up. My cousins and aunt and uncle have been busy all week transforming it to a home that will easily be rented. And really, it's different, but I think it looks GREAT! They still have a few more things to do, but hopefully, my aunt and cousin will be able to rent it before too much longer!
Because of this HUGE renovation, my grandpa has NOT been taken to his house, and we probably will avoid taking him there if at all possible. Last night, after he arrived from Utah, he kept asking over and over if anyone was sleeping in his house. The first time he asked I made the mistake of telling him that they were fixing it up, and there wasn't any carpet in it. He got FURIOUS! He said, "I didn't authorize that!" We know, Grandpa, but if you were with yourself, then you'd understand the things we're doing are for the better good! Poor guy, I just can't imagine losing that much awareness!
And as a final little funny note, my brother weighed Jake and himself on my mom's scale to see how much Jake weighs. Now, mind you, he's wearing size 6-9 month clothes and size 4 diapers. On this scale, which only measures by the half pound, he weighs 17 1/2 pounds!! HOLY COW!! I think Cam was that weight around 11 months!! What a cute little chubbers!
He's SO close to cutting his bottom two teeth too. He's a miserable little guy! Today in church I had to leave meetings MANY times because he was just so miserable. I've been thinking that they'll pop through any day now, but we're STILL waiting! Poor baby!
The other fun thing with Jake, he's rolling from his tummy to his back. Every time he does it he has a shocked look on his face. It's SO cute. I used up 45 minutes worth of video tape TRYING to get him rolling over on video.....only to get 45 minutes worth of Jake on his belly! :P

So, has your grandpa asked about his house anymore? That's gotta be tough!

Those pics of Jake are so darn cute. He is getting sooo big! It's hard to believe that he's almost 4 months old. He is looking more and more like a Holverson every day... not a thing like his big brother. That darned milk man! j/j Thanks for sharing the pics.

SO funny! He is adorable! Jake SO totally reminds me of your brothers! It looks like he has been doing a lot of "unauthorized growing"! (That is what I always tell my kids when they outgrow a clothing size.)

Love the new glasses! Why are you not wearing your contacts anymore? I can't believe how big Jake is. He is definitely his mama's son :)

Wow, what a cute little chunk he is! I LOVE your new glasses. I got new glasses after my second; I just could not deal with my contacts and their care any longer (especially as I kept falling asleep with them in! Ouch!)

I figured that glasses were easier and a LOT less upkeep! (Plus even WITH our insurance glasses vs. glasses was OVER $100!!)
