Happy Thanksgiving

Today is a day where everyone (is supposed to) stop and think about all of the things in life that they are thankful for.

God has blessed me in so many ways this past year. If you would have asked me this time last year if I would be where I am now... I would have told ya no way!!!

I am thankful for wonderful friends who are always there for me. Uplift me, help me, cheer me up when I am down. God seriously blessed me with many!!!  A special thanks for my 3 besties. Without them I don't know how I would have gotten through so many ups and downs in my life. Thank you and I love you - Leisa, Carlita, Mark.

I am thankful for wonderful parents and step-parents. My stepdad has helped me in so many ways and has always been there for me. My stepmom even tho it has been 3 years since her passing, she always had great advice for me, was always there when I needed her, she is greatly missed.
My mom and dad have always loved me. They have always stood by me even when I made stupid choices. They have helped me out in so many ways and have helped make me into the woman that I am today.  Thank you Mom and Ken and Dad and Bobbi. I love you.

I am thankful for my wonderful children. Even tho most days I want to pull my hair out, I couldn't imagine my life with out them. They are my heart and with out them I would be nothing.  I love you PeyPey, Renbug, SamiPooh, and Madybear.

I am thankful for great in laws... past and present. My ex-mother in law and I haven't always seen eye to eye but its been in the more recent years we have grown a mutual respect for each other and a special friendship.  For my new mother and father in law, they have been there for us when we have needed help. They have stopped what they were doing to be there for us. My grandma in law has always been there to support my husband and I, helps whenever possible and just loves us unconditionally. My step-step grandma has always accepted me and my children and my husband with open arms. She has always loved us.  Thank you and I love you all- Pat, Angie, Donny, Ione and Barb.

And to my husband. I am so thankful that God brought him into my life. We have had our ups and downs but I know that he is the man that God intended me to marry, to have 2 beautiful babies with and build a family and a life together with.  I love you forever and always Brett!!!

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!!!

who woulda thunk

If you would have told me a year ago... that today I would be married, have a "new" daughter that we are getting custody of, have a 3 month old daughter and a baby on the way... I would have never beleive it. NEVER!! 
It is crazy all the things that can change in a years time. 

I still am in shock over it all. 

So the next time that you are feeling down. Feeling like nothing will ever change. That you will always be stuck where you are. Remember, God has got this. He knows what He is doing. And who knows where you will be in a years time!!!

first timester

Good Morning world.
Notice there is no "!" at the end of that. lol. It is what it is. It is a good morning. I made it to my moms and then to work safe and sound. My husband made it to work safe and sound. The roads are straight ice. I couldn't even hardly park in my moms drive way because it is at a slight slant and my truck kept sliding back down the drive! lol.  but God watched over us and we made it safe and sound.
I am happy for all of that. But I am in a mood. In a not really crabby but not really happy type mood. Ugh. I was alright when I woke up... but then just one little thing irritated me, and boom there went my mood.
This is the one thing I hate most about pregnancy. The mood I get in. I feel like I am always in a bad mood. I don't want to be bothered with anything. I just want to sit and zone out. I wish I could just sleep the next 10 weeks away. 
I am nauseated all the time. I got meds from the doc yesterday, I am hoping they will work. They didn't last night, but I am hoping that maybe it's one of those things that it takes a few days to kick in?! lol.
Today is the first day in weeks, that I have acutally done something to my hair other than pull it back or stick it up with a million bobby-pins.  I actually put make up on other than just mascara. Its not that I really wanted to, but we are having people over this afternoon for a birthday party and I want to look nice for that. Not like I am half dead.
I feel bad because I know I am crabby all the time. I don't want to be, I just am so easily irritated.  One of those wonderful things that they "forget" to tell you when someone explains pregnancy.  I bet if someone had a class and told all the gory details of pregnancy and childbirth, girls would think twice. lol.
Don't get me wrong. I am so happy and so thankful that I am having another beautiful bundle of joy. I just hate this part. But in a few weeks I will be past this part and I will be going through a different stage of pregnancy. lol. Always something. :-)
Today is baby girl's birthday party. (Guess I am going to have to call her something different here soon... she's no longer a baby and no longer the baby in our family. hhhmm- Ren-bug. I will have to do a post updating on all my "nicknames" for the kiddos. lol)  I feel bad because her best friend was supposed to come up and we were going to have a joint birthday party for her, but with the weather being as horrible as it is, there is no way it is going to happen. I just hope everyone will still come for her birthday. I get off work at 2 and the party is at 3. Talk about rush! rush! rush! But, I know everyone will be late anyway... so its all good.  And I know Sami-pooh is a bit disappointed too cuz Ren-bugs best friend is Sami-pooh's sister. She was looking forward to seeing her, but hopefully we will be able to figure something out when the weather gets a bit better so they can see each other. :-)
Alright, enough complaining for now.

Stay warm and have a blessed day!

9 weeks and counting...

Well... we found out a couple weeks ago. We are expecting again.  I am about 9 weeks prego!

We are definetely hoping for a boy this time.  I am hoping for this morning sickness which just never seems to go away at any point during the day, goes away asap! lol

I am going to have my hands full here next June.  I am still in shock. And I am very scared. Having 2 little ones under a year old at the same time!!! Oye!!!

But I know God has a plan for it all and it will all work out one way or another!!!

Things at home have been caotic.  I haven't been feeling well and honestly not in the greatest mood most of the time. I am exhausted so the house is a complete disaster. We had a family friend pass away and I am in charge of cleaning her house out so that has been taking up time. I am behind on laundry and dishes. We seriously have ran out of dishes!!! lol  I am just hoping we dont run out of laundry!! haha. 

I have tomorrow off so here's hoping that I feel good, have energy, and can get everything done!!! *fingers crossed*

Baby M's Birth Story

Last day being prego

The day baby M was born started out just as any other day normally would.  I had an early morning appointment with job and family services. I felt over dressed but actually felt good that day, so I wanted to look cute. After the appointment, I called my dad up and said that since it was the last day that I was going to be with out a baby and a carrier and all that, that we should go to lunch. I was sceduled to be induced the next day).  
So I go and pick up my dad andw we (my girls included) go up to have lunch a little diner up the road from us.  We ordered our food and then it happened... I felt wetness in my seat. I thought that I must have just accidentally peed myself since I was so prego! lol. So I excuse myself and go to the bathroom.  I go to the bathroom and it just gushed out water. My pants were completely soaked.  So I grabbed a bunch of paper towels and toilet paper and stuff my pants and walk out to tell my dad that we needed to leave... my water just broke!!  
I called Big B at work and let him know. My dad was freaking out as I drove him back to his house... worrying that Big B wasnt going to make it home in time. I assured him that he would probably be home before me... and don't ya know... he was!!!  
Big B was freaking out. I walked in the house and packed a bag for the girls since they were going to go and stay a few days with my mom, I got my bag and pillow all together, and I got a snack bag together for Brett because I knew he would probably get hungry. I called my mom, the doc, and Big B's family and then we all headed up to the hospital.  

waiting to deliver

Big B and his bff

My water broke around 1230 and we made it to the hospital probably around 130ish.  They started me on pitocin around 430 to help speed me along. Abount 545 I asked for some nubane for the pain because I didn't want to have an epidural... but by the time the nurse came in with it, I was already pushing and baby M was born at 6:01pm 
It was absolutely amazing!!!!  And Big B did so great. Better than I thought he was going to. :-) 
Baby M was 7lbs 7oz  and 18.5 inches long.
