One more thing I wanted to tell that couple last night was: thanks for telling me I looked tired. That was EXACTLY the look I was going for!
So here's the first update:
I mentioned that I'd lost 3 1/2 pounds, right? Well when I woke up this morning one of them was back!!! I was extremely discouraged. I was ready to just bag it. (I'm just brimming with willpower, I tell ya!) I was this (holds thumb and pointer finger half inch apart) close to eating a bowl of Crunch Berries for breakfast. But I resisted. I went to lunch at Applebee's with my friend Amanda and I ate off the Weight Watcher's menu. I probably ate more than I should have but I didn't get full so I knew I was doing something right. So all day I've been in a bad mood. Blaming the one pound weight gain and the lack of sugar. Just been grumpy. So tonight, I weighed myself again. Ya, that's right. AT NIGHT. That pound I gained? GONE!!!!! Yippeeeee! I'm so glad I didn't eat that ice cream like I soooooo wanted to.
My head still hurst most of the time but I hear it gets better. I just want to eat. I haven't felt full since Monday. Anyone who's considering this diet should be warned: it sucks. And as my sister, DeNae, said: "[I] better be pencil thin by the end of this or someone's gettin' eaten."

Here's the second update:
Harley had his 9 month appointment this week and here are his stats:
Weight: 18 lbs 2 oz.---------> 50%
Head: 47 cm (Helloooo! We're in America. Give me this one in inches please!)
He's still a little behind as far as motor skills but I'd say no more than a month. He commando crawls everywhere but doesn't go from crawling to sitting up by himself. He doesn't pull himself up to furniture, yet either. Those are the only things he's behind in. I'm pretty sure he's perfect.
He's got 5 teeth. He waves bye bye now and then. And when I tell him to wave he also says ba ba ba. I'm certain he's saying it. He's freakin' brilliant! He shakes his head and it's so dang funny...unless I'm trying to feed him. Then it's not so funny.
So there's the updates. I gotta stop posting and get reading and commenting while I've got the blessed computer!
