Happy Due Date, Buddha

Hi Sweet Boy,

I can't believe you would be turning a year old tomorrow. I can't imaging how different our lives would be, but I know all things work out the way they should and God had a plan that has now come full circle for us as a family. Your sister has brought us so much joy and we talk to her every day about you and how special you still are to us. You will always hold a special, special place in my heart. You will always be my first baby. No one will ever replace you.

Have a very HAPPY DUE DATE! Give lots of hugs and share tons of smiles.

We love you to the moon and back and to the moon again.


Momma, Daddy and Baby Abbey

Hapy Easter, Buddha and Abbey!

We love you both so much and are so thankful for both of you. Buddha, we still think about you daily and I constantly look for rainbows every time it rains. Abbey got to see her first rainbow last week and it meant so much to me! You will always be our first baby and hold such a special place in my heart. Abbey, you are our miracle. You have brought so much love and joy and healing to me and daddy and we thank God for you every day.

We are so very proud of BOTH of you!

If you're wondering...

We are doing amazing! Abbey is such a blessing and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect, beautiful daughter. She sleeps like a champ, nurses like she was born do to it (even though we are fighting low supply issues-Thanks again, PCOS!) and is more than we could have ever asked for. I will be posting a birth story at some point. Labor and delivery were interesting, but I wouldn't change a single thing about the entire day. Even if it had been the worst experience of my life (which it wasn't), I would do it all over again.

I have not got the new blog up yet, so don't think you've missed the boat if you didn't get an invite yet. This little miracle takes up my entire day (that and being chained to the pump...) so I haven't had a chance to get everything set up just yet. It's coming! I promise!

Abbey is 11 days old.

I've been a bad blogger. Honestly, I just haven't felt like blogging. My heart just hasn't been in it lately and time has not been on my side. I am off work now (more on that later) so it sounds like I have tons of free time, but I have tons of things to get done in that seemingly (to me) short amount of time. Here's a brief run down of everything that's been going on:

-I'm officially full term! 37w2d today! As of today, I am 3cm dilated and 50% effaced.
-Abbey and I are both doing great!
-I am still struggling with weight gain, but it's nothing to be really concerned over. Last Monday at my 36 week appt, I lost all 10 pounds I had gained up until that point. So that got me taken out of work and put on modified bed rest and earned me a super fun stay in L&D. The nurses in L&D were super, super nice and I got to go home about 5 hours after I checked in. So no biggie :)
-Abbey's room is FINISHED! I'll post pictures later.
-I'll also catch up on my belly pics from the past few weeks at some point.

And that's really all that's been going on. I've been really enjoying and savoring these last few weeks and have been spending as much time as I can just watching Miss Abbey bounce and move around in my belly. I know I've said it a million times, but I'm going to miss her being inside so, so much. Ben can't wait to get her out, I can't imagine not having her in!

If you have e-mailed me about my private blog, I have your e-mail saved and will get invites out soon. That is probably another reason I haven't blogged over here much. I have a lot of things that are more personal that I am saving and don't really feel comfortable sharing with just anyone. I'll try to get all those invites out this week at some point.
