Are any of you still with your 1st “serious” boyfriend/girlfriend or married that same person?

Were you their first serious bf/gf too?

I am with my first serious boyfriend. Lost my virginity to him, started dating when I was 16 and he was…

No for me, yes for him. I’ve had three relationships that lasted over a year previously but the longest relationship he was in before lasted 4 months… and he’s 7 years older than me! lol I call him a serial dater but he was just waiting for the right one before making a commitment ;D 

14lb 10oz!
Weighed by a nurse today =) She was impressed by his strength and length. Everyone comments on those two things. I can’t believe 5 months ago he was 5 pounds. He’s going to be triple his weight by 6 months, My strong long baby is gonna be a chunky baby before you know it. Nurse said he was really filling out, too! YAAAAAAY!

and yes, Tall Cake is still convinced Elias will never be chubby. He says (and the nurse hinted at the idea) that Eli is only getting heavier because he’s getting longer… I go on and on about how he’s jumped from like the 10th-15th percentile in weight to the 30th percentile and Tall Cake just says “He’s 30th percentile in weight because he’s jumped from 20th to 95th percentile in height. He’s gaining weight in height, not fat.” =/ Whatevs, y’all. He’s a good weight =)

Naming problems

I love our boy’s name. Elias. It’s perf. The sound, the meaning, the nickname, it’s exactly what we want. 

However, I’m now running into predicaments for future children.

How often do you wash your hair? I have been washing it every single day for as long as I remember but my hair dresser just yelled at me to go at least 2

I’ve always washed mine at least once a day..because I have super oily skin and hair..but I…

I used to wash my hair every day, it’s always been oily. I’ve been pushing my hair to every other day, or every two if I have no where to go (or plan on wearing scarves or hats). You can train your hair to be washed less often, and using a dry shampoo can help for the inbetween days. 

I wash mine with shampoo once a week then conditioner every other day, sometimes three days, buuuut I have hair that dreads on its own so I only use the conditioner to keep it from knotting up

I wash mine every 2-3 days. I use Trader Joes (no sodium laureth sulphates) shampoo for a couple months and then Herbal Essences for about a month. Switching it up keeps my hair from getting grease buildup. And I rinse with diluted apple cider vinegar after every shampoo.

What does the apple cider vinegar do? I have extremely thick hair that is pretty dry. I wash every two to three days. I’m going to start doing longer between I think because it’s still so dry. I’m also looking into getting a good deep conditioner.

I wash mine every 4/5 days. Lolllll.

Lmao I’m the same, every 4-5 days.

I’ve been told to go a day or two between washes as well, but my hair type does not allow for that. If anyone is going to see me, I have to wash it every single day because it starts to look oily and gross after like 12 to 14 hours. My hair is very fine and pin straight. If I’m not going anywhere I’ll poof some baby powder in my bangs and go a day without washing. I don’t color or blow dry my hair so it stays healthy despite the over-washing I have to do to look presentable. If anyone has any great dry shampoos that will keep my hair from looking too oily and stringy so I can skip days and still go out, please please please give me your reviews!!

Do you ever wonder if your vision would be better had you received glasses earlier? I wonder this all the time about the hubs!

A family at my church just found out their 6 year old boy has been partially deaf since birth

I am SO SO SO glad we’re doing all these hearing tests right now. Like, it’s crazy. Six years without being able to hear properly. Oh my gosh.. Poor Tall Cake didn’t get glasses until he was in Junior High and clearly needed them for many years (thought christmas lights on a house down the street were cop cars, couldn’t see the television from 4 feet away, couldn’t read the board even when in front of the class without squinting, etc). I know a few people have said I’m worrying too much about Eli’s ears but seriously I do not want to find out years down the line that he had a fixable problem that went unnoticed!!! Love this baby so much and I want the best for him always<3

Got our final specialized exam appointment!

Going to Central Michigan University on July 30th. They have a wait list and are super booked but there was a cancellation so they were able to schedule us in really quickly! Feeling blessed and hoping we either get a definitive answer or a final piece of confirmation that he is indeed super chill. Love this baby boy <3

ENT appointment this morning

Summary: He might just be a super chill baby.
