Nice time

Yeah! Momom came over yesterday so that she could see the baby. It's been a little over 2 weeks since she has seen her grandson... This gave me the chance to run to the grocery store for food and the mall for something to wear for Easter... I refuse to where maternity! And I can't fit in any of my pre-maternity clothes... sighs... and may never be able to. But anyways, I found a dress that I loved in navy blue and it made me look pretty busty... so I got a bigger size in black. Of course I was sad because I loved the blue... but when I got home and showed the dress to momom and explained my dilema... she called another Macy's and they had the blue in my size! Yeah, so today she is taking the dress to exchange it :) woohoo. Mama's happy now! But now I have a problem... what shoes to wear!



Katie gave Edward a bath. His second "real" bath and he loved it. He only cried when he had to get out. The swimmies didn't work too well... he pooped again... sighs.

9:00 pm

So last night, I wasn't even thinking... I was drinking ice tea at 9:00 pm. Pete comes in and says " are you mad at me? or do you just hate me or something?" Me: "no why?" Him: "Well your drinking tea at night... it's gonna keep the baby up all night." Me: "I drink cofee all morning and the boy still sleeps... It doesn't even phase him." Well let me just say... oopsies! Pete just woke up from sleeping all day. I gave him the baby at midnight when he fell asleep and I went to sleep. Pete said that the baby did not fall asleep til about 5 this morning and then woke up at 9. Which at that point, Pete brought him to me with a dazed look on his face. I happily grabbed the baby and started talking to him as I slapt him on the boob. After he ate, I layed him on my chest and we both fell asleep in bed and did not wake til 12! Yea momma got some sleep and daddy didn't. I guess drinking tea after 7:00 is not a good idea!

Guess who's 1 month today?

Oh my goodness... I can't believe that my baby boy is one month old today! The past month has been a blur and has sped by fast! I was just talking to mom yesterday about this... telling her that I've done nothing this past month! But she reminded me that I have been taking care of the little man, making sure he's eating and taken care of... Good point! That's been a lot of work but it's getting easier as the days go by. I'm enjoying every moment too because he won't always be this tiny!


Here are a few shots I took of my mom's dog Zac and momom's dog Tilly. Aren't they the cutest?



Yesterday mom and I went to get a pedicure and man did I need it. It's been nine months since my toes received any tending, loving, care. hehe. Aren't they prettiful?

Got milk?

LMAO... I am still laughing this morning when I think about what happened last night. Pete was cracking up, shaking his head at me last night when I told him what happened. So last night, I had the baby in bed with while I was watching a movie and I was feeding him during this time. Well, the little man was pretty fussy about 9:30 and kept crying and knocking the boob away and I know he's hungry. He starts screaming and his face starts turning beet red which is unlike him... so I know something's wrong and I look down and find a drool hanging from the boob to his mouth. So I go to wipe it with a burp cloth and it's still there... and I'm like what the hell! So I look closer and my nipple is squirting milk out like a faucet! And my poor boy skept squinting his eyes and trying to move away as he kept getting squirted in the face. Just as I figured out what was happening, I slapped a burp cloth on the boob and started to wipe the little guy's face off... He was not a happy camper with mommy. LOL. But I had to laugh because I just couldn't believe what happened... lol

Snicker, snicker

Now why wasn't I smart enough to use this with the doc when she kept getting on me about my weight gain when I was pregnant? LOL. Good one!

I look at him...


While I was watching Edward sleep earlier, I couldn't help but think to myself, He looks like me when I was a baby so I went through my baby album and scanned a photo... Sometimes when I look at him, I see me in him but yet, I do know that it's too early to tell. I need to find a baby picture of Pete and compare them.

Spent the day with mom

So yesterday, mom picked Edward and I up around 11 am to spend the day at her house with Aunt Jamie and Katie as well. Gives us both a new scenary since mommy hasn't been able to leave the house due to a c-section. We had a nice relaxing day! Mom and the girls held the baby and I read, did some magazine work and relaxed a bit. Mom took the baby to church around 5 and I napped. When she got home, Jamie stripped Edward and put on a bathing suit and she and Edward got a bath. He absolutely loved it! Will upload pictures in a bit. Jamie had a great time until I heard her screaming from the livingroom. LOL. Edward decided that he needed to poop and well, there were a few little green terds floating in the tub. So Jamie starts yelling and shortly after that, Edward got scared and started to cry but once Jamie calmed down, he did too and well, that was the end of the bath. LOL. Mom will be sure to pick up baby swimmies for next time.

2 weeks old shots

I love this hat on the baby. He looks so good in green :) Here are a few shots that I took over the weekend. I had another fun hat but it's too big so I'll have to wait until Edward's head gets a little bigger for that shoot. LOL. Yes Jodye, I remember what you said... "he's going to be a toy to you." LOL. Poor kid will never escape the camera!

Mother, daughter holding baby Edward

Photo taken by Reagan Williams at http://www.reaganwilliamsphotography.com/ This is one of the dozens of photos that Reagan took Sunday when she was here to do a a shoot of my new bundle of joy! When Mom sent it to me, all that came out of my mouth was Oh my God!! Isn't it beautiful? Reagan is located in the Catonsville area of Maryland for those of you who are in the area and are interested in having her do a photo shoot for you! She's great and I promise you that you will not be disappointed! She does wonderful work. I should have more photos next week sometime from the shoot to share!

Today was a good day

Dad came by since he was in the area to spend time with the baby. He has to come when the girls and mom aren't here because otherwise, they won't let him hold the baby... LOL. He even dressed Edward and took him for a walk around the block since it was a beautiful day out! He said that the baby really enjoyed it. He was looking all around. Mom came at 2 with Reagan, a photographer who asked if she could come do a quick shoot of the baby. This was fabulous because a few months ago, I emailed her telling her that I wanted her to do newborn shots... but after Edward came and I realized how much we'd be spending on diapers, wipes etc... Well I couldn't pay for the photo shoot which made me sad because this was something I had wanted. But in the end, Reagan asked if she could come take a few shots for free which was a win win for both of us because she can post the shots in her gallery, and I'd promote her on my blog and when I scrapbook the photos... I can't wait to see them. She showed me one that she took of the baby and I and OMG. She's good! She took some naked shots and Pete just thought it was wrong LMAO... But he just doesn't get it. Pete's mom is here for the week. She has been rocking Edward as she reads for the past few hours. It's been a rather peaceful day! Mom has been dying to get over here. She hasn't been here in a week and it's killing her. She couldn't believe how much Edward has grown in a week. He's fattening up a little. She said she couldn't wait another week and that she will be over on Tuesday lol. I tried to keep her out of the house while Pete's mom was here but I do understand mom's pain. LOL. And honestly, Kay doesn't mind. Mom also said that Jamie (my sister) will be coming by Sunday after practice to spend the day with the baby :) I'm surprised she has waited this long. She's absolutely crazy about her nephew. Well, things have been going really well. Today I finally put on some normal clothes instead of the pj's I've been living in for the past two weeks. It felt good to dress up. Mom and Reagan said that I looked great and I actually felt great. I changed like 5 times this morning because nothing fit right... I'm healing much quicker then I thought but that doesn't mean I'm walking the stairs or cleaning and lifting... Doc said none of these things for 30 days and I am not going against her orders because I do not want to have to have surgery again! Well, I'm gonna go for now. I have no pictures to post yet... My computer died yesterday... which I do not want to talk about because I'm devestated, so the pictures will have to wait because I don't have a way to upload them to hubby's laptop.

More shots from this morning

You want to know what's weird? When Edward was in my belly, I have a sonogram that was done showing his hands up by his face... And whenever he's asleep, he still keeps his hands up near his face. It's very comforting for him. The minute Pete or I move his hands, he starts swinging and fussing!

Baby Announcements

For the past week, I've been scoping out different websites on pricings for baby announcements and my goodness... they are not cheap! I do not understand why one announcement cost $1.39! So me being the creative one... I decided to create my own baby announcement. Once I finished one, I scanned it and ordered regular photo prints through Shutterfly.com. So when they come in, I will just pop them in an envelope and consider it done! And do you want to know how much this cost me for 60 prints? 10 bux! As opposed to $89.40. Cool deal!
