Dear Grayson,

Dear Grayson,

We don’t mean to be rude, but….what are you? We just don’t get it. For months and months, Mommy and Daddy would tell us, “Your brother is coming; he will be here soon. Aren’t you excited?” Sure, we were excited…to get another DOG. We honestly thought we were getting a puppy- another furry creature who would…

1 Month!

1 Month!

Grayson is one month old today! He weighs 7 pounds, 2 ounces and has outgrown most of his “preemie” clothes. We are still very much in newborn diapers, and have already had to buy more (grrr…I stocked up on diapers big time during the pregnancy and followed the advice to not buy too many newborn…

Settling In

Settling In

Future Genius Grayson will be 4 weeks old tomorrow! I finally feel like we are somewhat getting settled, not that we have any real routine. I feel like our days and nights are just never ending feedings, diaper changes and cuddles, but that’s ok. It’s been strange for me- I’m so used to having a…

Grayson

Here is the story of the past 3 weeks of my life…it’s been a wonderful, scary, emotional, incredible ride. Warning: This is a long story. Exactly three weeks ago at about 7:10 PM my life changed forever. I was sitting on the couch, surrounded by my dogs, watching Kate + 8 and waiting for Ryan…

Friday Update

Friday Update

So I guess my last post was a little more “Debbie-Downer” than I intended. Things are definitely better now than Monday, and my worries are much less after getting them out, as well as talking to family and friends. Updates: I just got back from a doctor’s appointment. 37 weeks- full term!! I REALLY feel like I…

Worry

Worry

“…Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34 I’m trying. But at 3 AM when I am wide awake, uncomfortable, hot, sweaty and have a sick little dog plastered to my side whose tummy is making horrible noises, it’s hard not…

Growth Ultrasound

Growth Ultrasound

This is his face- look sideways Today was my ultrasound to make sure little G is growing like he should. Turns out my doctor was right- he is totally fine, but just little. He is as big as a 33 week baby, and I’ll be 36 weeks tomorrow. According to their fancy computer, he weighs…

35 Weeks

35 Weeks

I borrowed this list from a few blogs I’ve discovered and have enjoyed reading. I wish I had done this every month, but a lot of it has stayed the same, so …oh well! How Far Along: 35 Weeks, 4 Days. 31 days till I’m due! I can’t believe it’s a month (or less) away!…

Fur Babies

Fur Babies

Ryan and I have 4 dogs, and at the risk of sounding crazy, they truly are our babies. Everyone says, “Just wait until that baby comes- those dogs will be dogs again.” That makes me sad. However, I’m not one of those people who treats their dogs like they are human- they don’t wear clothes,…

I'm Blogging!

I'm Blogging!

I’ve been wanting to start a blog for a long time now, but the whole idea of it just makes me nervous. I guess I’m just self conscious about putting my life on the internet and even more nervous about what people will think. I don’t want to look dumb, boring, or that I am…
