Evie Rose

Evie Rose made her "debut" on November 10th. We are so excited she is finally here (it has taken me a while to now she is officially a month old!). Labor was easy, recovery not so much...but she is so worth it. She is NOT like her brother. He just whined when he was hungry...she SCREAMS!! What a diva already! :) She just wants to be held a lot and well she gets what she wants. Below are the hospital pics. What great hospital pictures!

Halloween Weekend!!

Happy Halloween everyone. I am thinking that this weekend would be a wonderful weekend for Evie Rose to make an appearance. You don't even want to see my swollen feet...they are heinous. They are like "monster" feet! I have 2 1/2 more weeks...but hey I got my Christmas a Halloween baby would be just fine....
So say a magical spell or tell me a good potion to drink to induce labor!!!!

Here's my "big pumpkin belly"! :)

37 1/2 weeks:

Evie Rose

So last week we had my final sonogram. Baby girl weighs 5 lbs and 5 ounces. WHOA!! So around 8 1/2 lbs if she comes on her due date! :) Maybe she will come a wee bit early. Everyone is saying she looks like my side of the family. Let's hope one kinda looks like me!
She had her hand up by her face and her legs were crossed. What a cutie!

33 1/2 weeks

So I am 33 1/2 weeks. I was 33 weeks on Wednesday but I don't have time to post these days. Look how big I am! Go ahead....say it. You won't believe all the comments I have gotten lately. I mean I might think some not so nice things in my head about pregnant ladies...but all the people that say things? Really? How do you think it makes me feel? Here are just a few:
*WOW! You are huge!
*You don't look so big today...
*You've gotten big overnight!
*Do you think you are having twins?
*Are you sure you aren't having twins?
*Everytime I see you, you get bigger and bigger.
*You are going to have a really big baby!

But, on a bright note, we are so excited and ready for Evie Rose to be here...I go for a sonogram on Wednesday and hope to see her little face. And I am sooooo miserable so I am really counting down the days. I am so swollen and hurt all over. Working+pregnant+9 month old already is NOT a good combination!

20 weeks

For any one out there that doesn't know the exciting news, we are having a baby girl!
We found out June 16th and I am so excited....ruffles, bows, and PINK! Although I would have been excited to have another boy, this just gives me an excuse to shop!
As of yesterday, I am officially halfway there! She is due November 17th. And if you are wondering, yes, the babies will be very close in age...if she comes
on her due date...10 months and 3 weeks apart!

June 23

For anyone that does not know, June 23rd was a very very sad day but also a special day.
On the morning of June 23rd, we lost my dad to cancer. He had lung cancer and was very successful in his treatments; however, they found brain tumors in April. On Wednesday, June 23rd my dad passed away...he did wait for everyone to come to the house and we were able to be with him during this very sad time. He will be missed more than you know!

June the 23rd was also a special day. It was the day that Trace was officially 6 months old. I am just so glad my dad got to spend time with him. It breaks my heart that he won't see his granddaughter...but I know he will be watching from above.

Trace has such a happy personality. He is always happy unless he is hungry or tired. He is starting to crawl...or is pretty funny to watch. He has a bottom tooth coming it and you can actually see a little of it and feel it. He went to the doctor on Monday and he weighs 17 pounds and is 28 1/2 inches long. He is only in the fifty percentile for weight but the 90 percentile for height! He is a growing boy. He is mainly wearing 9 months or 12 months clothes. He sleeps so good too...from about 8:15 at night to about 7. And takes good naps. Yesterday he had a 3 hour nap! WHOO-HOO! He loves to laugh and if you make "pooting" noises on his arm or neck he goes nuts. He loves TV...oh no...but a little Baby Einstein makes it easier to get up and "nap" in the morning when it is my summer vacation!
It is time to baby proof the house because who knows when he will start scooting all over the place! :)
Trace at 6 months

See how long I am?!!

Prayers for My Dad

Anyone who knows me or has read my blog in the last year will know that my dad has been battling lung cancer. In the last couple of months, a lot has happened. For one he had not been getting chemo since August....but he had to start that up again. Then he had some dementia...well he has tumors in his brain caused by the lung cancer. He had 15 treatments of radiation. We found out Tuesday that they are still there. I am a bit confused but apparently the radiation didn't really work; although the doctor says it might take 4 to 6 weeks? Well he still has the dementia and he is really tired and doesn't talk much at all. He has his good days and his bad days (along with the big pregnant whale...ME!). So we need lots of prayers. They doctors says for him to come back in two weeks for a chemo treatment...although for the past month he hasn't had one because his platelets have been low. So right now he is just at home, there are some nurses that come to help out but it makes me sad to go over there. Dad isn't much for talking and we try to make him talk...he might just be sick of us...he usually spends every weekend at his hunting place and well he hasn't been there in a long time! We want him to get better so that he can go back....
So lots of prayers, please! :)

I posted this on my facebook status yesterday! Can you hear me singing it? The kids got out yesterday. WHOOOO-HOOOO! We had a ice cream sundae, dance, games, and face painting party for the wild first graders. Overall MY class was well behaved....but this other class (there is a total of 4) and we rotated through the rooms...face painting was in mine....WERE AWFUL!! Mine were great! :) They know how I want them to behave! ha!
But I did have a good class...but glad it is summer and I can post some pics and things and spend lots of time with my little man! Happy Summer to Everyone. I have to work Monday and Tuesday and that's it! YEAHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Celebration!!!!!

Oh by the way...did everyone know that Trace is going to have a brother or sister? And they think it is a GIRL!!! We find out June 16th!!

Rice Cereal

Little man had rice cereal for the first time last night. I think he liked it! :)

4 months

Guess who is 4 months old? Yep, my little man! He weighs 15 lbs and 3 oz. And he got shots. He did NOT like that. Screamed...but then was fine and then SCREAMED again when we were leaving. Who knows why?!!
So lately he has learned to grunt and sleeps ONLY on his back and then spits up all over the place. Oh well. And we have to have 2 pajamas each night because he gets them all wet. Guess he is peeing straight up! HA!

Beach Trip

Guess who had their first beach trip last weekend? Yep, the little man. But he did not get in the water. It was way tooooo cold. So we just shopped til we dropped  (My niece below found her Senior Prom dress) and we ate and ate. Trace and I went with my mother in law, sis in law, and niece. So this is a picture of the oldest grandchild (on my hubby's side) and the youngest grandchild enjoying our few minutes on the beach.

Cold Day in Hell

A couple of weeks ago it must have been a cold day in hell...because it snowed here in Georgia!! I rarely snows...usually freezes. This was the weekend before I went back for maternity leave. So the night it snowed we went over to my cuz's house (hubby has 4-wheel drive) and had a little suppa club.

Freddie and Trace the day after

Picture Perfect

I finally ordered my birth announcements for the little man. This is not the picture I used (see several posts below and I used the one where I am holding him) but wanted to give thanks to Nicole (check out her facebook page) for taking time to get a good one. Here is another cute one below of the little man. She just sent me the CD and can't wait to print all of them out! :) She is going to take some 3 month pictures of him too and I can't wait. She is sooo good at capturing the little ones! I wish I was that good...maybe I need a new camera? Hint hint hint!

On Saturday, Trace turned one month!

We love him soooooo much! He went to the doctor on Wednesday and finally has gained some weight so now he weighs 8 lbs 12 oz. 
Things that he is doing:
He turned over, yep, turned over 3 times when he was about 3 weeks. Usually is it only when he is on his tummy and is pissed! :) And we when want him to, he won't!
He is a moving fella. He moves all over the place, even his head. 
He clinches his fists all the time and has started grabbing my necklace and my hair.
He smiles.
He is mainly fussy when he is hungry and at night for some reason.
He loves his lovey monkey and chews on its face.
He is still so small and wearing newborn clothes.

Good Morning!

Trace wanted to tell everyone good morning. Happy Monday to all!

Friday, January 22, 2010


I really wish I had a great camera and was a better photographer...cause I love to take pictures...but am not that great.
So my sister and I have a friend whose sister takes some great pictures. We are going to get her to take some 3 month pics of little man. Well she came by last Saturday to take some pics for his birth announcement. She did a great job. Check them out below!! I can't wait to see what else she does. He looks like a little angel (I am a bit biased) in the pics! :)

Sweet Dreams

Sleeping and smiling. Must be having sweet dreams!

First Bath

Trace's first bath was finally after his umbilical cord fell off (he was about 2 1/2 weeks). Well he did pretty good until I took him out. Then he got a little perturbed. And I used this cute towel that says Little Prince! :)

Trace looking mad AFTER his bath
I am pretty happy...
Not so sure about this bath stuff.
What is this craziness?

The Stork

Of course, we had a stork in the front yard; however, we didn't take a picture with it until the other day when it was FREEZING...we forgot to take a picture the day we came home.
My sister got the stork from a good friend down the road and set it up the day he was born! Thanks to Aunt Pretty!

Coming Home

Trace got to come home on Christmas Eve! What a wonderful Christmas Eve present. So technically after he was born we were really there only a day or so. If it had not been the holidays, I might have stayed longer considering they wait on you and bring you meds and food! :) Next time, I will stay my 48 hours! ha!

These are his coming home pictures:

Trace in his car seat for the first time.
