6 Weeks

Boobear turned 6 weeks old this Wednesday! I left him with his Daddy for the morning and had my 6 week doctor appt. Everything looked good and I got a clean bill of health. It seems like Brady is doing more and more every day. We started the week out with a nice visit from Auntie Hill and Auntie Ally. He slept most of the time that they were here, but that was a good thing when we decided that we wanted to go to Martin's for lunch. We went to Orange to visit Auntie Ally and Auntie Hill later in the week. We also stopped off at MawMaw and PawPaw's to visit with them and Auntie Lulu and Gracie. It was a relaxing afternoon. Gracie and I took a dip in the pool while MawMaw and PawPaw entertained the baby. Today MawMaw came to watch him while I went to the grocery store. I took him with me for the 1st time alone a few weeks ago and I decided that I wouldn't be doing that for a while...at least not when I had real shopping to do. He decided he was going to start screaming in the check out line. Luckily for me, two very nice ladies took pity on me and helped feed him while I unloaded my basket. Thank goodness for the kindness of strangers! His Nana also came to visit him today. I hope he sleeps good tonight. I was so proud of him last night. He only woke up twice and went right back to sleep in his snuggle nest...we shall see how tonight goes!
Milestones for the week: Laughing and cooing, holding up his head on his own and hugging Mommy :)

Update After a Long Hiatus

Well, lots has changed since my last post. After I gushed about having such an uneventful pregnancy, it wasn't long before I was in the emergency room with severe abdominal pain. After several days in the hospital I was diagnosed with appendicitis and had an appendectomy during spring break at about 25 wks pregnant...what a way to spend my vacation. Anyway, it all went well and thank God the baby was fine. He was a little fighter. So, after all that drama I wasn't concerned at all about giving birth. After all the poking and prodding in the hospital, the excrutiating pain of surgery and recovery and the sheer exhaustion of the process, I thought giving birth would be a breeze.

And...it was! Due to Brady being breech and so big (thought to be 9 lbs. 10 oz. at 36 weeks) We had our bouncing baby boy on Wednesday, June 16, 2010 at 7:15 a.m. He weighed 10 lbs. 8 oz. and was 21.5 inches long. He was perfect and we were so excited to be parents!

We have had so many wonderful visitors to help us welcome him into the world. We are have been so blessed to have so many friends and family to help us get settled and take care of him. It has been a whirlwind since we brought him home from the hospital.

He is now 5 weeks old and the absolute light of our lives. Although having him with us has been an adjustment, Todd and I couldn't be happier. He is getting bigger and more alert every day. If he would just start sleeping a little more at night, we would all be happier! But he is so sweet that we can't be mad at him for keeping us up!

Life Changes

Well, big things have happened in the last few months! Todd and I learned in October that we were expected our first baby. We spent the first few months being very excited and anxious that things were going to turn out well this time.

I went to the doctor at 10 weeks and everything looked good on the ultrasound. We were so relieved!

I have been lucky not to have been sick very much throughout this pregnancy. I have had only a few headaches and some back aches, but no morning sickness or cramping. I am noticing that as I am getting farther along and getting bigger I am getting a bit uncomfortable and am dreading the last few months. We are almost 6 months pregnant now and everything seems to be going along smoothly. I am hoping that I stay healthy and comfortable until the very end so that I can work until the end of the school year. We found out on February 1st that we are having a boy. I was so sure that it was going to be a girl the whole time that I was a bit surprised. But, I am happy and I know that Todd is so excited to have a little boy. Hopefully one day, we will have a little sister for him to take care of.
We have been busy planning the last month or so and we have decided that we are going to decorate the nursery in Cowboy Chic, lol. Here is a picture of the bedding that I just fell in love with!

We are about to start trying to get the nursery ready and I feel like we have a million things to do. We are enjoying the process and I love that Todd and I have gotten to spend time together lately. He is going to be such a good father and he can't wait until the baby gets here. After much deliberation, lol, we have decided to name him Brady. We are still working on a middle name, but we have plenty of time for that!
