Thoughts on Tuesday!

1) I am back to my pre preggo weight!!!! I wish I could tell you some secret, but it just came off this time! (but don't be too jealous by tummy is jacked up for real!) 

2) My Brother his wife and my niece and nephew came to visit last Sunday! I just love them all to pieces and Carson had so much fun with them! I cant wait for vacation!!!! It will be Todds first week off in 5 years since starting the business! 

3) I just purchased this sleeping bag for Carson to take to summer camp with him! We love the book Brown Bear ;)

4) I also just purchased This dress and I officially obsessed! It is beyond comfortable and so flattering!

5) Last but not least! I had not nursed baby girl in 15 days but I still had milk! I had tried to latch her a couple times but she just was not to interested, and honestly neither was I! Well her tummy has been so messed up on just formula ;( So last night while she and I were taking our bath she latched and loved it! So as of now we are nursing at night and in the morning and miss Taylors tummy is already doing better!!! 

I just LOVE these two!

Thoughts on Thursday

1) I need to go shopping!!! It's killing me, but I need to buy a one piece for the summer!

2) My sweet baby girl gave me a 6 hour stretch and then a four hour one last night! Pretty amazing at 12 days old I think!

3) It's Thursday and that means tomorrow is Friday!!! Whoo Hoo for Fridays, mamas gets to get a full night sleep and my house is being cleaned ;)

4) I am dying to catch up on all my tv shows!!! (hopefully this weekend)!

5) On Tuesday I took the kiddos to the pool by myself! Luckily some of my girlfriends meet me there and helped me to entertain Carson! I just love having other amazing sahm right down the road!

Just a little bump in the road........

So the first few days were pure bliss, seriously they were! I was convinced we had finally got our "easy baby"! I was so excited I was all but bragging to our pediatrician that we had a happy baby with no Acid Reflux! She was quick to burst my bubble and let me know that is could still come, and a likely chance it would since Carson had it so bad :( Well she was right darn it! Baby Taylor has Acid  reflux, and poor girl is in pain most of the time when she is awake! If any of you ladies have or have had a baby with reflux you know how hard it can be on baby, mommy, and the rest of the family! Now I am writing all this to say Acid Reflux you can kiss our tales, we are going to be happy! I am still going to shower, get dressed and put on makeup! I am going to do things with my babies, and we are going to go places! You see with Carson I let this take me down. I was depressed I wouldn't take my baby anywhere, and it was no fun for either of us! Not this time our glass is going to be half full not empty! If acid reflux is our only problem then we are blessed, seriously blessed! Now here to hoping our insurance is going to cover the $265.00 a month medication she needs :)

Happy Mothers Day........

Happy Mothers Day to all you Beautiful Mothers!

I especially want to wish my own Mom a very happy Mothers Day! Having here with me this last week was simply amazing! We bonded in a way we never have before we laughed, we cried, and saying goodbye was so hard. I miss her so much! I love you Mama!!!

And I seriously couldn't ask for a more special mothers day myself! My heart is just so full, and I feel so blessed! I cant wait to hug on my sweet babies and love on the man who helped me create them!

My Heart and my Hands....

Please excuse my absence on the blog this week! My heart and hands have been very full! 

 I promise to be back next week with more pictures and details of the past week!

A great day for the Hewitt's!  First, I just want to say this was most definitely one of the best days of my life......unbelievable day.  Second, I want to say that is was very important for Caycee that I do this post for those of you out there following along.  I just ask that you bear with me.......I can check emails with the best of them, but I don't have a facebook, I sure as heck don't have a blog (that I actually have control over anyway) so right now I'm just sitting here hoping this actually gets posted so I will have pleased my little Caycee.
Anyway, our beautiful little Taylor was born at 7:36 this morn weighing in at 7 lbs 10 oz and 20 inches long.  She is doing great and actually slept from 9:45 this morning until 5:30 this evening. Only reason she even woke up then is because as Caycee and I sat there and talked it struck me that there may be a disaster in her diaper as it had been quite some time since that kind of thought crossed either of our minds.  So, at just before 5:30 I decided to check things out and just as I had pictured there was quite the disaster waiting on me so I went on to change my first girl-baby diaper.  This just so happened to finally wake her up and Caycee then went on to feed her as it had been close to 8 hrs since baby Taylor's last meal.
Caycee is also doing well and as she fed Taylor I was instructed to go to Subway to pick up a pepperoni, bacon, and cheese sub.  Again, she made it very clear that it was extremely important that I post some info on our day along with some pictures..........I sure as heck hope these pictures turn out for you guys.....here ya go...hope you enjoy!  Todd

Our Last night........

As a family of three!

I can not even believe in less than 12 hours we will be a family of four! I am just overwhelmed with happiness right now! 

I never would have thought in a million years I would be this blessed! I have two of the most precious men in my life! Watching Todd with Carson just melts my heart, he really is the Best daddy ever! Lord help him with a baby girl ;)

And can I just say how proud I am of my little man! I can not wait to watch him with Taylor! He is so excited about being a Big brother. The boy has mastered the diapers, bottles, and burps! Hey maybe I can get the little critter a step stool and he can take over middle of the night feedings! I kid!I kid!

I will try to update you all as soon as she arrives tomorrow!

Until then Xoxo

My heart is Heavy today......

In just three days we will meet our sweet baby girl! I am so ready to see her and hold her!

But my heart is just so heavy for my friend Sarah today. She went into labor at 32 weeks Sunday night and was 9 1/2 cm dilated yesterday. Her beautiful baby boy Bennett was born yesterday and they couldn't stabilize his heart or breathing. He didn't make it! So yesterday Jesus got one special angel! I am writing this as tears just flow I don't understand and my heart is broken! Sarah is the sweetest girl you could ever meet we have been friends and neighbors for over three years now and I just adore her and her family! If you could please say a special prayer for my dear friend and her family today!
 Carson loving on sweet Madison
