Up to date

After reading a friend from college's blog, I realized it was time for me to come back to my own blog. She made me realize that it's okay that I didn't write about certain things, and even though I am behind, the most important thing is that I write down these memories. I had this whole OCD moment where I had to go back and fill in all the missing pieces, but to do that would take time that I don't have. Hopefully our family members and friends will read and enjoy these posts, but mostly I want to have a record of this journey to look at and read for years to come! So thank you, Betsy for helping me jump back in to the blogging world!
So.... our "baby boy" is not such a baby anymore! He turned 2 in December and we celebrated with a monkey theme.... very appropriate for him. The term "terrible two's" just doesn't describe some of the days we have around here. However, most days, he is a spirited, sweet, loving little boy who can melt my heart in a minute by saying, "Mommy, I wuv you!" He loves to sing in the car, (You Are My Sunshine is one of his favorites) play with his trucks and cars, take bubble baths and color in the tub, watch his favorite cartoon "Bob Bob", and ride his bike in the house! He also loves to snuggle with his Mommy and Daddy... something that will never grow old, and something I sure hope her never grows out of either! He is also settling into his newest role of being a big brother to our sweet princess Addisyn!

Addisyn Lynn was born on June 2nd- after a 5 week hospital stay on bedrest for mommy due to marginal placenta previa. To say those 5 weeks were some of the hardest in my life is an understatement... And although I thought it was so hard for me, I know it was incredibly hard on my boys! My sweet husband had to take care of everything-including his 9-5 job-and STILL managed to bring my little monkey to see me everyday in the hospital (well, except for 2 days in which I INSISTED he bring PJ home so he could experience some normalcy. Back to June 2nd....
Because I had placenta previa, Addisyn had to be born via c-section in order to ensure the safety of both of us. I was terrified at the thought of being cut open, but after those tough weeks in bed, and the roller coaster of not knowing what would happen at any moment, I was just happy to have her in my arms and safe- not to mention the fact that I was just grateful I didn't hemmorhage, need a hysterectomy, or experience any of the list of things that the doctors and nurses discussed as *possible* things that could go wrong with my condition. I am just now realizing that I need to give some background to all of this bedrest business since it has been so long since my last post... (To be continued...)
