Ok, so I have sorta out of it.  I’m sure none of you have noticed…….. *cough, cough*

Here’s the truth.

Motherhood is difficult on the soul.  Even if you have one of the world’s most adorable babies, because let’s face it.  I have one of those.  LOL  Granted, she is amazing.  She is a great baby.  But I’m human and this ginormous change can be really taxing on my soul some days.

But that’s only one of the reasons why I feel uninspired to write here.

Ever since I thought that my mother has found this site, I have felt suppressed and nervous.  Other family members and some real life friends stumbled upon here, which ultimately was fine.  But it took some getting used to.

Frankly, this blog began turning into something I wasn’t expecting.  CENSORED.

I thought about shutting down this blog, but then I thought it would make me a quitter.  Then I thought about making it private.  But I don’t really have enough readers to do that.  It just seems silly.

So here I sit in limbo about my formerly secret blog.

I really don’t know what to do.

So today I’ll give you what you probably want to see right now anyway.  My little girl on video in pictures!

———Ok so apparently I can only upload my video’s to facebook.  Bummer.  So I lied and you will get only still shots.  Anybody have any advice?———-

CIMG0719Her two month pictures.  Every month I am posing her in the same way with the same outfit…. er, diaper only, to see the remarkable change she will be making this year!

CIMG0728Tell me that is not one of the most precious things you’ve ever seen.  ADORABLE.  You know, if I do say so myself.

Don’t put as your facebook status….

“I warn you I’ve been listening to the Cure a lot lately, ‘Put a bullet in my head, pretty pretty please!!!”

Even if you think its funny and put quotes around it to ensure that people reading knows that its from a funny movie, The Wedding Singer.

Because not everybody knows all of Adam Sandler films and might believe that you have Postpartum Depression and get a sincere and sweet intervention via the telephone.

Just so we are all on the same page…..

And on that note…. have a happy day.



did you know that babies grow up too fast?

Hi!  It’s me.  The author of this near abandoned blog.

I won’t bother with apologies or excuses.  I have a newborn.  That’s all you need to know.

So I’ll just leave you with a few pics to keep you happy then I plan to post regularly again.  Well that’s the plan anyway.

I also want to come by to all of your blogs to try and catch up.  I feel like I’ve been on vacation and need to catch up with all of my old pals.

IMG_4809CIMG0521This is at her very first doctor’s appointment.  She immediately peed on the table.  Nice!

CIMG0535Her first bath!  And surprise surprise…. she loved it!  She didn’t so much care for the getting out part.  Then again, who likes getting out into the cold world?  I sure don’t.

CIMG0553Getting changed after her bath.  Gosh she is just so dang cute I can’t stand it!

CIMG0638Don’t stare directly into the chee chee’s!  It’s dangerous!

CIMG0642Check out the difference!  These bath pictures are about 5 weeks difference.  It’s amazing how quickly they change.  I’ll try not to get depressed….

CIMG0687No I didn’t cut my hair.  It’s pulled back into a Mommy Ponytail.  I refuse to cut it.  Then again, I might change my mind once my little peanut starts pulling my hair.  But I doubt it.  I also refuse to EVER get a minivan.  No way.

CIMG0620She loves her swing!

CIMG0626You know what else she loves?  Her daddy!  Look at one of her first recorded smiles.  Aaaahhhh…. melts the heart.

CIMG0700Here she is today (the day before 8 weeks.  My how times FLIES!) sitting in her bumbo for the first time.  She did so well!  She is already holding her head up pretty well.  You know ….  cause she’s so advanced. LOL  (don’t you just hate how everybody thinks that their kid is so special and advanced?!  Uh, sorry but they’re average, which is normal and fine!  Sorry, getting off the soapbox…)

So there is a quick summary of what has been going on here.  Mostly nursing, napping, pooping, and the occasional smile.  Life is pretty good.



here she is!

Introducing………………(drum roll please)

My brand new baby GIRL!

BRADYN MICHELLE!!!!!

Birthdate:  7/8/09  and she picked her own birthday.  I didn’t even have to be induced.  Story to come later.

Weight:  6.0 lbs

Length:  19 inches but at the first doctor’s appointment they measured her twice at 18.25.  She had to be suctioned out so she came out a bit cone headed.  I’ll trust the smaller number to be more accurate.

CIMG0451Seriously…. isn’t she just a doll?!?!

CIMG0452CIMG0453Couldn’t you just squeeze those cheeks for days???  Yah, I know, hard to resist.

CIMG0455She’s got her momma’s lungs that’s for sure!

CIMG0461First bath!

CIMG0469Daddy’s first diaper change.  Good job Dad!

CIMG0496CIMG0498CIMG0499And now the happy family is coming home!

Apologies that I haven’t updated sooner.  I had a rough go of it in labor and am having a painful recovery.  I’m just now coming out of the most painful days and am getting stronger every day.  And every day I fall more in love with Bradyn and my husband.



induction day

So apparently Tiger thinks that my womb is waaaaaaay to comfy to leave my womb.  I thought for sure that the fireworks would help jump kick a baby out!  But alas no such luck.

I made a plan.

I called the doctor’s office and decided to schedule an induction.  So as of today 7/7/09 I will be going into a scary world of IV’s, contractions, then an epidural and possibly ending the ordeal with a baby.  Although this process might take a long while, so I could end up with a baby on 7/8/09.

If you think that there is a possibility that I might be freaking out….. your right!

Of course I’m super excited and wanting to meet our son or daughter.  But to be honest, I was really hoping for the natural progression of things.  I wanted my water to break or the contractions to start and head to the hospital.  Granted, this weekend, I had been feeling contractions, although they were few and far between.  What a tease!

We will begin our day bright and early at 7am to get drugged up and ready to go!  LOL

Please keep me and Tiger in your thoughts and prayers.  Our main focus is a healthy baby and healthy momma.

HAHA!  This is a goofy pic that Mr. Cat took of me I think at 38 weeks.  I’m ridiculously huge…. so huge in fact that my head is chopped out of the picture!  LOL

As an unfortunate side note, we are having to deal with another insurance disaster.

While Mr. Cat and I innocently were picking up a prescription at Target Pharmacy when we found out some horrible news.  Our insurance, without warning or notice, terminated us as of July 1st.  

This is like a slap in our faces.  There should be absolutely NO reason why this should have happened.  

So tomorrow when we are supposed to be working as a team and gearing up to bring new life into this world, my poor husband will be fighting our insurance company because they’re bastards.  Seriously unbelievable.

Again, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.



independence day (I hope!)

Today is my due date.

Tiger has yet to make an appearance.  UGH.

I’ve had a few contractions.  They are mild and totally random.  

As soon as I have news….. you’ll have news.

But until then, let’s celebrate another birth.  The birth of this great nation.  I pray that it will continue to be great!

getting down to the wire

We are seriously getting down to the wire.  

People I’m due THIS Saturday!!!  HOLY SMOKES!

I had another doctor’s appointment this afternoon and I am 1cm dialated and the baby is sitting really really low.  Who knows?  Could be tonight…. could be in two weeks.  Although as of today I told my doctor that we should induce me by the 13th if I haven’t already started on my own.  Although I’m reconsidering that and only going until the 7th.  7/7/09 seems like a good date.  Not a good reason to be induced, but really I’m hoping to go early anyway. 

So the game is on!

If your my friend on facebook, then you have probably already played, but if your not, put your guesses in NOW.

In the comment section, please guess

Winner will receive…… well nothing.  But you can feel good that you won (if you do)!  And really, its all about your pride right?  

Guess away!

I’ll just sit here and wait.  Literally.  Oh and freak out. 

Why?  

Haven’t you heard???  This whole childbirth process will HURT.  Yah, I should have thought about that ooooooooohhhh, about 10 9 months ago.  I mean, seriously, what was I thinking?!?!
