The Baby Is Here!

Finally my bundle of joy has arrived! She made her debut on November 3rd, 2011 at 6:50am. Talk about an easy labor and delivery. I started having contractions around 2am and got to the hospital at 2:30am. Within 4 hours it was time to start pushing. After less than 30 minutes of pushing, Keira decided to come meet us. I am very blessed for the quick and fairly easy labor. I decided to go the no medicine route so I could really get a feel for what giving birth felt like. I am really lucky that I only had major contractions for a few hours because yes, it is true, contractions hurt! I have never felt anything remotely as painful as contractions before. With that said, she was well worth … Read entire article »

Finding out the sex of our baby!

So, as you might have gathered from previous post, I am pregnant! My husband and I could not be happier. We feel truly blessed. There are a few days in your life that you will never forget (hopefully they are all positive). Important days to me are your wedding day, the day you find out you are pregnant, the day you find out the sex of your child and the day your baby is born. One of my big, unforgettable days is soon approaching, and I can’t wait! Next Tuesday, June 14th, we will be finding out the sex of our first child. Everyone seems to think that the baby is a boy, I have a feeling it’s a boy also. We will be gracious no matter what the sex … Read entire article »

Being pregnant can be a blessing and peaceful time of your life. For me knowing that I am responsible for a life inside of me makes me very happy. We have created this amazing creature that we need to love, support and protect. Children are a gift sent from God and a miracle. A lot of women tend to continue on with their day to day schedule and never sit back and think about this time. Pregnancy is a beautiful thing. I hope that anyone wanting to get pregnant is able to, or at least finds peace within their self by donating time to work with children, foster a child, adopt or simply realize that things happen for a reason. Babies are a gift and should be treated that way. … Read entire article »

Looking at cute clothes, adorable shoes and cool toys seems to make motherhood seem awesome. What about the late night screaming, poop on the rug and the constant need to suck on your boobs? Is that as awesome and exciting as you thought it would be? Well I would like the think that the answer is yes. Motherhood seems to range from extremely blessed to overly frustrated, but at the end of the day, it is apparently all worth it. Take time to enjoy every minute you have with your little one! … Read entire article »

Happy 2011

It’s a new year… time to make some changes (if needed)! Start the year off by doing something nice for someone. Get goals for 2011. Make small changes that lead to big results. As for myself, I don’t like to set unattainable goals, but rather small baby steps that I can accomplish. When I have reached that goal, I then increase the goal. This year a goal that I have set is to eat better. My step baby step is to cut back on carbs – not completely – baby steps!  I hope whatever you are trying to obtain this year is reachable and you are able to obtain it! Happy 2011! Make a difference! … Read entire article »
