Day 3 at home boy was it a ruff one

Ok so on day 3 things were not so easy like I thought the day before. Bryson had one melt down after another Annabella nursed like every hour and I cried oh maybe a million times. Bella stayed up a lot today so I thought oh good we will get a good night in tonight but boy was I wrong. I did not get to be till 4:00 am. :0 So guess what I cried a million times more. The time in the day now goes by so incredible fast I forget to eat sometimes because I am so busy. So I am posting on the 4th day and good thing today was a school day for the other 2 because I probably would have cried a billion times today. Thankfully I did get sleep from 4-8 then from 9-11 so I feel sane again. :)

Our 1st day home

WE came home on Monday January 28th and the kids were so happy that we were home. The first night was not so bad she let me get a good little bit of sleep. The next day we had to take here to the doctor to check her jaundice but she is ok no need for treatment. It was very interesting getting out of the house with three kids its going to take some adjustment.

She's here!!!

OK so Annabella is finally here. She was born on Friday January 25th 2008 at 2:25 pm. She weighed 7 lbs 7 and a half ounces and she was 18 and a half inches long. She is so precious and I am so thankful that God has blessed us once again with such a beautiful baby. Her big sister and brother are taking a little time in adjusting to our new life but I know they will get use to it eventually. I will try and post as I can but life is very busy now. Thanks for all the prayers. Please continue them as well.

4 days and counting

OK so today is Monday the 21st and we only have 4 more days. Some are still holding on that she will still come early but I think for once this little one is very happy in my belly maybe because she hears her sister and brother and not sure if she is ready for all this madness. I keep trying to walk her out even my Pediatrician which is a good friend told me today I need to go out on a four wheeler or muddin in a Jeep :) I'm not sure who is more excited to see this new little bundle of Joy at first I thought it was me but then I'm not so sure if its her grandparents, her siblings, her Aunt Linda, her Pediatrician, or really everyone I'm in close contact with. I had people at church telling me yesterday that they didn't want to see me anymore until I have Bella I wasn't sure if I should be happy or sad that they didn't want to see me anymore. :) I think the excitement over a 3rd child is greater than the 1st is there anyone that can agree or is it just me? So anyways keep me in your prayers the kids will have school Tuesday and Thursday so those will be my last 2 days of peace and quiet before the baby comes and I will enjoy them completely. I will of course post blogs of Bella when she gets here. I will also let you know who wins the weight poll. :)

Potty training

Success Bryson has finally gotten it. He told me Tuesday that if I got him big boy underwear that he would go potty and so I bought him the expensive Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater Underwear and he had a little trouble at first and then on Wednesday he was in them all day with only one accident and I was so proud. Then on Thursday we had school so I thought I better just send him in a pull up for my moms sake since she does have 6 other kids in the class but when he got home we got back in underwear and he had success all night. So Friday we went to the Mall and I thought OK am I just brave or stupid to go to the mall with him in underwear? So off we went and he did great until we were in Carters and he got to playing but you know thats just how it is when they are new to this. Today Saturday he has done great he has actually gone all by himself without my help so im thrilled. So now I will not have 2 in diapers yeah. Sorry no pictures of him on the toilet. I know your glad.

This is what happens when Big sister gets you

OK so Bailee and Bryson are playing and getting along and into the Living room they come and the pictures show how they were. We have always told Bryson he is not to dress up in his sisters dress up clothes, but when they get alone and get quiet this is the result. Bryson thinks its too funny but I just hope its not scarring him for life. As Kirsten always talks about saving for therapy I guess we better do the same since there is another sister on the way and who knows what will go down when she is old enough to boss him around too. I guess I shouldn't even admit that my son dresses up like this and his daddy and his banky will have a fit that I even took a picture of it but hey you know it was a little funny to see him in his dress up. I think I will need to go shopping for boy dress up clothes like asap huh. OK all for now.

Bryson's baby look is gone

OK so here are some pictures that my mom showed me that my dad took of Bryson one day when they played over at their house. I can not get over how his baby look is gone. I had people telling me at church that he was loosing his baby look but I never realized till I looked at these pics. Somedays I can not get overhow fast they are growing. The first picture doesnt even really look like himself but regardless he is still an all out Adkinson thru and thru.

10 Days to go

OK so I know have 10 days to go. I am not sure if my belly can grow anymore? I went to the doctor on Monday and nothing has changed. I went walking around and did some shopping again today to see if Bella wanted to change her mind about coming early. I guess she is just in till the 25th she likes torturing me already. :) I hope you enjoy the pictures. I will keep you posted on any changes.

Laundry Worries

Ok so if its not my husband telling me to check pockets, hang the pants on the right hanger, button the top button of shirts or my son leaving who knows what in his pockets. I was doing laundry with David last night and he continued to correct me on how to hang things and do things a certain when I told him that if its that important that I handed him back the job of doing HIS laundry. I am not worried about what hanger goes with what im just working to get it done to get to my next task. Ok so then today I was doing Bryson's laundry and to my suprise I found a play screw, a colored pencil, and then his prized possesion of his spider man flip phone. All I can say is I am so glad it did not ruin the phone because I would have been making a run to walmart to buy a new one he is just nuts about this phone. Ok so is there anyone out there to share in my laundry woes? Bronie I know you have said before you have laundry woes too. I think I am going to start teaching them to do their own laundry :)

False Alarm number 2

Ok so last night I thought I was going in to labor. I was in so much pain that I just knew that I was having the baby. But of course once I got to the Hospital my contractions were not consistent enough and I still hadn't dilated any. So all we ended up doing was spending 2 and a half hours in triage last night. Bailee bless her heart was so excited thinking I was having Bella last night she tried staying up my mom said she fought her sleep and stayed up till 11:30 waiting to hear from me or David. She even got one of her little purses and packing some things in it and said that was her bag for the Hospital. Today I am still having contractions but not consistent so I guess its just going to be this way until I have her. Keep me in your prayers because my kids are in one of those moods today that I don't really know if I can handle in my present situation. I will keep everyone up to date as to how things are going.

This is how I feel

OK so I don't look like this person but this is how I feel I look. I found this and thought it was too funny.

18 days to go

OK so now I feel like the days left sound better. We only have 18 days. I went to the doctor today and I haven't dilated any but for me that's OK since I have c-sections. I am scheduled for the 25th but they told me today that I'm not on the schedule till 2:00 pm which means I can not eat past 6:00 am that day and I have the time to think about what I'm about to go do. I will have to be at the hospital at 12:00 noon. But who's to say that Bella wont decide to come on her own before then. All I know is I told her that she either has to come in the night or early in the am before daddy goes to work because I would like daddy to be present when she is born unlike when Bryson was born. But anyways we are finally prepared we rearranged our room to accommodate Bella and her cradle and changing table so I feel prepared now. Keep us in your prayers. I have to say I am a little excited not to have to go back to work tomorrow but the kids will still be going so I will have 5 hours to myself tomorrow. Wow do you think I will know how to act? Of course I will sleep all day :) OK that's all for now
