I Remember.....

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

I remember being in my jr. year of highschool in spanish class on September 11, 2001. After we heard about what happened they turned on the tv for us only to see the 2nd plane hit. It was a surreal day, and nothing else happened in school. I guess my parents were just worried of what was to come, so they pulled my sister and I out of school to come home. There are so many people that lost loved ones that day. I don't care who you are, that day and its memories make you proud to be an american!

Jump 7 years later and I also remember where I was. Laying in a hospital bed pushing! We had gone in the night before to the hospital to get cervidil and low and behold I jumped into labor no problem and was pushing with in 8hrs. She came out so easy and my precious Savannah was born! She is beautiful and my perfect daughter! I love her more and more each day! Happy Birthday!

PS. Mommy couldn't handle 2 birthday parties back to back. So pictures to come of her party at the end of the month:) We did however venture to Chuck E Cheese for the first time on her birthday and had a great time. Pics to come of that as well:)

Double the Sweetness!

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

I don't like to say double the trouble.....seems unfair to label them that way so soon. Because all I know is when I saw these sweet twins my friend just had. They looked like the most precious little angels! Jackson and Lydia are here and had AMAZING birth weights for twins. No NICU for them. Go mom! She had a long road leading up to there births, but did a great job! They are so perfect and cute! Congratulations!

Free Free I'm Free At Last!!!

Saturday, September 03, 2011

I know the title makes it sound like I was in jail or something.....but it is just my way of saying I'm excited and proud to say that I'm now done breastfeeding my second child for a whole year! Baby Charlie has officially moved on to whole milk. It is always a rough road, but I'm glad I stuck to it. I have had two kids and never bought or fed a can of formula to either one!

The second time was a little easier for sure. No mastitis (huge plus!) Milk got low at some points, but not as low as with Savannah. No waking up at 2am to pump just so I would have enough for the next day. Both kids were very good at taking a bottle and then switching right back to me when I was home. I love the bond I have had with each one of them while breastfeeding, but at the same time so glad to be done. It is a lot of work!

Baby C is getting to be such a big boy! He is out of his baby carseat and looking like such a little man! Tomorrow is his 1 year birthday!!!

I told you so.....

Friday, September 02, 2011

Um I told you I would be busy:)

Last week was Savannah's first Mother's Day out at our church. I took the day off so I could take her and pick her up with Charlie. We weren't quite sure how she would do, but we were definitely excited! I packed a special lunch and probably had way to much fun! lol If she could read, I would be sending special notes for sure. So instead I send special sandwiches:)

Hello Kitty Sandwich:)

We got there with all of our things and walked her to her class. She was greeted by the director of the program and her school teacher. She walked right in to go color and never looked back! Sad for mommy and daddy, but good for her! Later we went to pick her up and they said she did great! She slept and ate most of her lunch! She came home with her coloring projects and a little report card on her day. She had fun I think and was still tired once we got home. I hope we have a great year!

All ready for her first day!

While Savannah was at her first day of school, Charlie and I felt like it was a good time to take baby Charlie to get his first haircut! It was a big day for everyone. So we went over to a kids cut place and baby Charlie did pretty good. A little uneasy but good. He got a good little trim and then we just spent the rest of the day at home. He got a haircut before his sister! I still haven't taken her.....I just love her hair and never felt the need to. But I'm sure we will take her very soon for a trim.

A little nervous....

Happy clean cut boy:)

All in all it was a great day of first!
