I can fit in my pants again.

I can fit in my pants again. This is great!  I gain about 40lbs with him. I have already lost 20 lbs. My baby boy is one month old now. Oh life is just great right now. He makes all sorts of noises when Steve, Jay or I talk to him. He already lifts his head up and laughs. He is so precious and adorable. I’m nursing my little man Christopher. So I have to eat fruits and veggies. Which is not all that different from what I ate before? The only thing that is driving me crazy is that I can’t drink coffee. Too much caffeine for him! I can finally lie down in my bed flat. Since I had a c-section it’s been hard to do anything at all. The baby is sleeping in his crib now for about 30 minutes at the most. Steve and I can’t help but to hold him at night. Like we did when Justin was little. We already put our Christmas tree up this past weekend. Jay is the best big brother to him.  Christopher was crying yesterday and Jay was by the bouncer telling him not to cry while he was holding his hand. It was a Kodak moment! Steve is working so hard taking on many things.  I love to watch him talk about the boys. He face just lights up with joy. I feel bad I get to stay at home right now while I heal. I will be going back to work real soon. In the meantime I’m back to cooking dinner every night. However I do not cook on Sunday my mom comes over with food. She comes to visit the kids and food just follows. (Ha ha) I love you mom you are the best! My book is coming along great it should be done by the New Year. I can’t wait to have it in print.  I’m so excited to have Thanksgiving at our house this year because it will be Christopher first.  Having Christopher is like having our family renewed in a way. Steve and I have the most fun just being at home with the kids. We have family night every week. It’s so much fun to think about what this New Year will bring. I have to go now homework is calling.

When a soldier comes home!

When a soldier comes home, he finds it hard to listen to his son whine about being bored. To keep a straight face when people complain about potholes. To be tolerant of people who complain about the hassle of getting ready for work. To be understanding when a co-worker complains about a bad night's slept. To be silent when people pray to God for a new car. To control his panic when his wife tells him he needs to drive slower. To be compassionate when a businessman expresses a fear of flying. To keep from laughing when anxious parents say they're afraid to send their kids off to summer camp. To keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather. To control his frustration when a colleague gripes about his coffee being cold. To remain calm when his daughter complains about having to walk the dog. To be civil to people who complain about their jobs. To just walk away when someone says they only get two weeks of vacation a year. To be forgiving when someone says how hard it is to have a new baby in the house.

The only thing harder than being a Soldier.. Is loving one.

Christopher David Needham

I don't know where to start he a week old today. He is so great so precious I love begin a mom again.My water broke last week  it was time to go get check in at the hospital. My hubby was  great with me every step of the way.I ended up having a c-section because he was laying on the cord. When he came out he was just fine. Justin is a big brother he loves it between us and him this baby is going to be so spoiled rotten.If I'm not holding him his daddy or big brother is. Life is so truly amazing that I was able to have a healthy little boy. He is a good baby . He sleeps though the night he doesn't cry at all unless we have to change him. He doesn't like to be naked at all. Jay was the same way! I can't get over the fact that he is here finally  we can hold him. Although I can't do anything for the next eight weeks but stay at home. It's okay because I have a loving  husband who is taking good care  of me. He is a little on the paranoid side but that's okay. I think it's so cute because I thought I seen his soft side with our son Justin.  Steve is a softy with both of our son's.  My mom with the whole family showed up to meet the new little man. My mom has been great cooking us food and bringing it over. It's been a little hectic around here. Having people who care about you so much makes it's better to get though the day.It's a little hard to sit here to type I feel like my guts are going to come out. I really hope this back pain goes away to so until next time. I adore my family  I couldn't get though it without my husband. I love him so much words are just not enough to tell him how I feel. I'm truly blessed! I love you stud muffin.

Due Date

I’m full term as of yesterday and I’m so excited to see what our little boy will look like. We have been all smiles ever since yesterday. I had an ultrasound done. We seen our little man he is head down and ready to say hi to the world.  We seen his spine his feet and butt. His little foot is what keeps kicking me in the side. It’s painful at times but worth it. It made me think how amazing being able to give life really is. I have a human growing inside of me that my husband I adore and love. We did that you know anyone can have kids but to be real parents its take a special gift. My labor with jay was hard because my honey was overseas at the time. He was able to see me before I left the hospital  he was delayed for a short time. It was nice to see him the two years we were apart was tough. He is here now  I just can’t wait. My little man just can’t wait to see his brother. Jay and Daddy are rubbing my belly so much telling him to come on out! I have to confess I’m a little scared to go into labor it has been eight years since I did this last. My honey tells me I’ll be fine just like last time no sweat Right! He makes me laugh so much. The baby’s room is all done clothes are wash and put away. My bag is pack and I’m ready well sort of. The one thing I won’t miss is peeing every ten minutes. I’m picking up big brother’s gift today so he won’t feel left out. We all took our last trip till next year and we had a blast. A little colder then what I wanted I’m not ready for snow yet. Jay and I pulled out the Halloween decorations and did the small stuff around the house. I have been cleaning like crazy but I guess that is normal it’s called nesting getting ready for the new baby. I swear I have cleaned the house from top to bottom like a dozen times not like it’s dirty but it makes me feel better. Updates will come soon on how far I am so stay tune for the good news!

5 weeks to go!

I’m getting so anxious to see my little boy. I have to say this experience has been the best. I was able to have my hubby with me this time. Thank God he didn’t get called back to the marines like with our first born. I think it has been great for jay because it’s something he has wanted since he was little. Besides all the sickness, bloated feet, er visits and weight gain which has all been in my belly. I’m great full that god has let me carry this pregnancy to full term. Even though my doctors where not so sure but everything happens for a reason. Steve has been so great rubbing my feet and back. Picking up the house work he has completely  taking over these nine months. Treating me like his queen has really given us the time to reconnect with each other. He is always kissing on me mainly my belly. He calls like crazy when he is not home. He always knows how to make me smile. I love my family! We are planning one last trip before the baby is born. Hopefully he doesn’t decide to come out early. I’m sitting watching my belly just go crazy he is like working out or something. Sometimes he will move for an hour straight it’s so neat. When he rolls it feels so weird. I pack my hospital bag today. Went to the store to get a gift for jay from his baby brother which I know he will love. This weekend we are finishing up the house. For the next few weeks I’m going to write another chapter in my book. Then I will pamper myself. Spend time with my two favorite men cook a lot and have fun.

34 weeks

Well what can I say I’m 34 weeks pregnant and loving it! What I do not like is the weather change it’s to soon. I still have a garden and would like it to grow some more but hey it has done really good this year. It double in size I have so many green peppers I have been giving then away. I have gotten over four pounds of habaneros peppers for hot sauce. I also grew basil this year which grew out of control so I dry it out and of course gave some to my mom and friends. I have pumpkins growing to that the squirrel planted for me. That is doing well also I already have good size ones to bake homemade pie this year. I’m trying to get everything ready for the baby so far so good. Steve is so over protected of me and the kids. He is forever telling me to take it easy because after the baby shower last weekend I thought it was time to have the baby. I was wrong thank god it’s too early he needs to cook some more. Jay is so ready for his baby brother to get here he is already asking to take a few days off of school to stay home with us. He is so cute! Wow only 34 weeks not to much longer I can’t wait. His kicks are so strong. I love sitting with my family watching my belly move like crazy. It’s funny because as soon as he hears daddy’s voice he just starts moving all over the place. Steve is a great dad and family man. We have already talked about maybe trying for a little girl in a year or two. We will see where we are first. My baby shower went great. Thanks to my mom and hubby and all the women who help get the food ready. I love all the baby stuff it’s so cute and little. I get to start putting everything in his room this week. Of course my loving husband will set the crib up and dresser. I think we may have a name picked out but not sure on it. We all like a different names but it doesn’t click when you say it out loud. Jay just started back to school and he loves it. Everything is just perfect can’t wait for the rest!

Look out 29 weeks

My family and I just got back from taken a great trip to see family. My baby boy went fishing with daddy and caught eight fish. Grandpa killed one the poor fish swallowed the hook. This past weekend has been great. Hoping we can do it again before the little one comes. I'm getting so fat but my loving hubby is always telling me that he adores me. He gets so happy when he looks at me and then he tells me that I'm the best thing that has happen to him besides our kids. My baby boy is growing up so much. It's so hard to picture that I will have a seven year old and a new born in just a few months. I can't wait I'm so excited to see him. We have already started to go shopping but we are going to wait for some stuff until after the baby shower. The baby keeps me up a lot so of course daddy stays up talking to our little boy. He rubs my belly that keeps on growing. He tells him all the things him and his big brother will teach him. The places we will go and most of all how much we all love him! I love my life!

Week 27 of Pregnancy

My Baby growth chart:

My baby moves on to a whole new growth chart this week, while your swollen feet and ankles may need a growth chart of their own!
My Baby in Week 27 of Pregnancy
For a baby, it's time to trade in the old crown-to-rump measurement for a new head-to-toe standard. So what are your baby’s stats this week (which, coincidentally, is the end of the second trimester)? Fifteen inches — more than a foot long — and triple (or even quadruple) what it was in week 12. His weight is creeping up the charts as well, coming in at just over two pounds. More big news: Your baby may recognize your voice by now, so feel free to serenade your belly (start learning those lullabies!).

This is what is going on in my belly.This is so cool and I'm scared oh no it's almost time to have the baby. What do I do? My mind is going crazy I have my baby shower coming up soon and rooms need to get painted. I'm trying to stay calm but I can't help it there is just so much to do. I'm excited for our son's arrival but still no name. I think it will have to be once we see him we will name him. So far I like baby. It fits for now. This morning I sat in bed watching and feeling him move it was great. It's something else to feel a baby move inside your belly. My hubby talks to my belly all the time telling him daddy loves him and just some silly stuff that makes me laugh.He is always telling me that I'm the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. He loves the way my belly is growing. When I think I might not make it though the day because it's to hot and I feel horrible or aggravate. He always makes me feel better by holding me close whispering sweet nothing in my ear.He has been great this whole time though my pregnancy I couldn't ask for more. I love my Life!!

Friday, July 9


There is so much in the world that is amazing and being able to give life is one of them. I'm about five in a half months pregnant with a little boy. I can't wait to see him soon. I get butterflies in my belly when I think about my family and how great it will be once our new little one is here to join us. I can feel him kick me all the time it makes me laugh. My husband and son love to put their head on my belly to talk to the baby. Steve is just so fantastic he is all about our family and getting everything ready before our little one comes. He has been to every doctors appointment he even came home with crab legs the other night well morning it was 3 am because I wanted them. He sat there with me to open all of them after I stabbed myself with a leg then made myself bleed. We talk about anything and everything we are completely honest with each other no matter what. I love him so much words are just not enough to describe how I feel.
