Family Photos and More

These past few weeks have been a lot of fun around here, my pepaw was able to come and visit the baby and we didn't think he was going to be able to come out for a few months so it was a great surprise. He flew in on Tuesday and brought some crawfish with him which were soooo good and something we haven't have for about a year! We had a few friends and family over at my moms house to enjoy it, and we had a lot of fun watching them eat it since none of them have ever had crawfish before. John's brother and sister in law came over and they discovered that one of the crawfish had escaped and landed in the pool alive and they brought it home for their kids to keep as a pet!! The rest of the week we just hung out with my pepaw so that he was able to spend some time getting to know Conner since he is growing ever so quickly.

We also took some family photos that John made pretty interesting. It is really hard to get him to be normal but he did ok in some of the pictures! I feel like I cant get enough photos of Conner becuase I dont want to miss anything that he does.

I really cant believe that he is already almost six weeks old and it will soon be time for me to go back to work. I never thought that I would want to be a stay at home mom because I am such a busy person but having a baby of your own really changes your perspective on it. I am going to miss him so much when I have to go back but I found out today that I have to have gal bladder surgery next week so I will be off for another week but it still isn't enough time. I keep telling myself that it will get easier with time but time will only tell!

One Month Already...

I cant believe that my baby is already one month old its amazing how fast this time is going. It seemed like wehn I was pregnant time went by like a snail and now he is growing like a weed. This past month has truly been amazing and I have learned a lot about myself like how long I can actually go without any sleep :) When he was about three weeks old he started to become a little colicky which has been pretty hard for us in the sleeping department but thankfully it isnt as bad as most babies that have colic. I feel so bad for him though when I put my hand on his belly you can feel all of the bubbles rumbling inside. Thankfully with a few minor changes to the way we feed him he seems to be getting a little better.

The week Conner was born my Mamaw on my dads side of the family was here and she was such a trooper. She stayed at the hospital everyday for at least 5-6 hours and then when we came home from the hospital she would come over everyday and help make sure everything was in order. Conner and I were both so lucky that she was able to come out and see her fourth great grandson and we hope that she gets to come back out really soon.

The following week my Nana on my moms side of the family came to visit and she was so excited because this was her first great grandchild. She stayed at our house and helped out a ton with cleaning and hanging out with the baby as much as she could. We went to see the easter bunny while she was here and since Conner had a doctors appointment we had to leave before purchasing the pictures, but she stayed and started to cry because she was so happy and the lady gave her free pictures! I was pretty excited about that part :) We had a wonderful easter morning and the easter bunny brought lots of clothes for the baby! We were sad to see her go but she promised that she will be back in August and she even got a camera for her computer so she can keep in touch and actually be able to see the baby.

The last two weeks we have pretty much been on our own unless we go to my parents house or if they come over here because John has been working like crazy.I am trying to soak up as much time with him as I can before I have to go back to work. Lucky for us though my mom will be watching him so I will at least know that he will be happy I didnt want to have to put him in daycare at least until he was walking.

Conner Wayne Werber

My beautiful baby boy is finally here! Ive been so busy the last couple of weeks that I havent had a chance to post anything about him. I found out pretty early on in my pregnancy that I was going to have a scheduled C-Section because I have a uterine fibroid that needed to be removed. Unlike most people I was beyond thrilled that I was going to have a C-Section because I was dreading going in to labor. I didnt want to have an epidural and stupid me thought that having a C-section ment that you wouldnt have to have one.

We went to the hospital on March 18th and he was born at 12:55 pm he weighed 8lbs 8oz and was 20inches long! John was having so much fun during the c-seftion becuase my doctor was training someone and so he was able to learn alot about the whole process. He was also taking pictures the entire time and let me tell you it is really weird to see what is going on on the other side of the sheet! We were in the hospital for two nights and I thought i was feeling good enough to go home, little did i know that as soon as i got home the real pain would kick in. We had to sleep on the couch because our bed was way to high for me to get in and our couch is extremely hard so the first week home we barely got and sleep. Im still healing and although I am feeling better each day I still tend to have major back pain that cause nausea every once in a while.

Being a mom is such an amazing, rewarding, and down right scary thing and I wouldnt trade it for anything. I didnt know what to expect but I knew that I was in for a ride and I am so proud of my husband for the father that he is. I always knew that he would do a great job but I think that he has really done more than i ever expected and hopefully he keeps it up lol!

New Years Eve

We had a wonderful New Years this year eating dinner and playing games with good friends. We usually go to the strip to watch the fireworks but I didn't really want to be the lady that was almost seven months pregnant walking around while my feet were swelling. We went to Chili's with Megan, Ricardo, Megan, Blake and Jenna and then we went to Megs new house to play a game and watch some fireworks. It was relaxing and a lot of fun. We even drank three bottles of apple cider before midnight! Here are a few pics from the night....

Kitchen Remodel

John has been doing amazing things around here and our latest project of a new kitchen is finally complete. Words cannot describe what it feels like to be able to have two people in the kitchen at one time and still be able to move around. It is more than I could have ever asked for and thanks to my dad who made it all possible. They both did a wonderful job....

This is the room before they got started

Removing the window to replace it with a door and a smaller window

Actual counter top to prepare dinner on

Eventually we will have a freezer in the other empty slot

I am very lucky and proud that my husband can do such amazing handy work!

28 weeks and counting

I have been horrible at blogging lately and as part of a new years resolution i am going to try and keep up with the little things like that. I cant believe that we are already in a New Year it seems like I was just having my birthday in July but time seems to be moving by pretty fast. I am so thankful for things that happened in 2009 along with a lot of things that I wish never would have but I guess the good always come with some bad. I am so thankful to be having this baby he is such a blessing in both of our lives and I cant wait to be a mother to him. I had a rough start with the miscarriage but God blessed me with a healthy pregnancy just two short months after. I can never explain how thankful I am for that. Although I have a pretty rough couple of months throughout the pregnancy it will all be worth it in the end. I try to explain to John that I have to complain about not being able to walk, or waking up in the middle of the night with leg cramps, or even being put on bed rest for a short while because if i didn't complain it wouldn't be me :) He thinks that I'm just looking for sympathy for him which maybe I am just a little! In the next two and a half months that we have to prepare for the little guys arrival I feel that there is a lot still left to learn on my end which is a little overwhelming but I'm sure it will all come naturally or at least that is what everyone says will happen.

I'M excited for the New Year to start and hope that it is filled with lots of great adventures for everyone!
