Brody's Newborn Pictures

We had pictures taken last week of Brody!  Here's a few!  If you want to see all of them check them out on snapfish.

Two Week Check-up!

This week was both my & Brody's two week check-up at the doctor's office.  On Tuesday, I saw my OB/GYN doctor who said my incision looks like someone who had a C-Section a year ago NOT two weeks ago.  He said I'm an amazing healer!  YEAH!  I go back in 4 weeks for my last check-up EVER!  Ok, maybe not ever but this has been a long road so I'm pretty excited that I'll be done going there!  All the nurses had to come talk to me while I was there to see how the delivery went and see how we were doing.  They are all such amazing people and make going to the doctor a fun thing!  I feel very blessed to have such good care providers!

Brody had his two week check-up yesterday.  Here were his stats:

AT BIRTH:  Brody was 8lbs 3oz and 20 inches long.


Height:  20 1/2 inches  41st percentile
Weight:  8lbs 1 oz (still down 2 oz from birth)  26th percentile
Head Circumference:  13.82in which is 14th percentile

He is just a little guy but very healthy!  All the tests done at the hospital came back fine and we are to return at 2 months!

First Week.....

The first week of life with Brody has been wonderful. I've loved every minute that we've had together. I would say that I have been very emotional as I'm adjusting to life as mommy of two. I'm trying to figure out how to balance both kids and trying to recover from my C-Section last week. I can tell I'm four years older this time around because my body is not healing as fast as it did with Marissa's birth.

Marissa is loving being a big sister. She always wants to help with everything and she is SO proud of her baby brother.

Today was Tony's first day back at work. I wasn't ready for him to go back yet. I felt like his time off went way too fast! Luckily, I have a fantastic support system and lots of help from my mom & my in-laws. I couldn't do this without them!

We got pictures taken yesterday. Brody cried almost the entire time so I hope we got at least one good shot! I'll post the pics once I receive them back!

Well, better get something done while Brody is sleeping...until next time!

Tomorrow's the big day!!!

Tomorrow is the big day we've been waiting for! 40 weeks to wait and now we are finally there! I'm looking forward to having this whole process over with and finally have my baby here! Lots of emotions and not to mention contractions! I am really ready to be done with all of those!

We had a good weekend just the three of us! Spending good quality time together was important this weekend since it was our last just us! Pool time, parades, eating out, taking naps, ice cream, slip-n-slide, taking more was just the kind of weekend I needed before the big week!

Next post will be to make our big annoucement! Wish us luck!

Last Doctor Appointment!

I finished up my doctor appointments yesterday. What a huge relief! Now, the only thing left is to show up at the hospital on Tuesday! Lots of things to accomplish this week so I'm glad I have a few days left. The ultrasound estimated baby's weight as of yesterday to be 7 lbs 9 oz so it will be interesting to see what his weight is at birth. My blood pressure was elevated yesterday and my feet are really swollen so I'm going to try to keep my feet up as much as possible this week :)

Looking forward to meeting our new little boy in 6 days!
