Half A Year (Plus a few Days)

It's hard to believe our little chunka munka is already past the halfway mark to his first birthday.  It seems like it's only been a few weeks since I had him.  I can say I didn't really get the little tiny snuggle baby like Charlee was, but it's been amazing to actually have a nice, HEALTHY baby!  We had a few weeks of colic, and now we're going through some EXCRUCIATING teething pain, but other than that, we have been exceptionally blessed :)
John had a vasectomy done two months after Dom was born, so it's sad to know there will never be another little baby in the house, but we have our two perfect babies, and I am happy to have them.  After the miscarriages and the fertility issues we've gone through in the last 8.5 years, it is nice to know I don't have to fret over any of it again.

Charlee loves her little brother, so much it amazes me some days.  She helps feed him and change him, and any time he drools or spits up, she runs "to the wescue" as she says it, to clean him up with a burp rag.  She spends hours on the floor with him, talking to him, showing him picture books and telling him stories.  I never knew, never even dreamed, how amazing it would be to see the love between my children.  There is something so amazing about watching Charlee open her whole life up to this little guy who pretty much burst her bubble as the only child and grandchild on both sides.  She still has a little difficulty when the grandparents are around, but even that is lessening a little each day.  I am so proud of my big girl, and love her even more for the way she loves her brother <3

32 weeks 5 days

Baby boy measured in at 4lbs 15oz today, which is right at the top of the charts for this "age".  His length was measuring at 34wks 3 days, so he's a tall boy too..  Maybe he will grow up with a better height advantage than John and I have!

Just realized it's been 3 months since I posted on here!  Life has been insanely busy!  I'm 30 weeks pregnant tomorrow,

 we moved,

decorated Dom's nursery,

 made the decision to cloth diaper and got all organized for that and have now bought everything we need to be prepared for baby boy's arrival!!!
I have started preparing some meals to freeze so we have a little bit of a stockpile by the time he gets here...that way poor John doesn't have to work all day and then come home and cook!  We've tried a few new recipes, which are AMAZING....We've had 2 new recipes so far and both were definitely approved by all 3 of us, and having another new one tomorrow!  Can't wait to fill up that freezer!

Baby Stewart is a.............................

This post is a week late, but Baby Stewart is a BOY!!!!
John, Charlee and I are over the moon, and I think Daddy is super proud that now he'll have a little man running around the house, a little shadow that DOESN"T have pigtails and bows ;)

Happy Birthday Nana!

Today would've been my Nana's 75th birthday.  We had plans to take her to the Paula Dean's buffet at the casino and have a fun day, but she's celebrating with DeDe Charlie and our angel babies in Heaven this year.  It's a hard day, full of remembering what was and what I wish STILL was today.  It's slowly getting better, but I know there will never be another person that will impact my life the way my Nana did, and I miss her every day.
I think the worst day is yet to come...the day this baby comes.  I LOVED having her at the hospital after Charlee was born, and it will definitely be a bittersweet moment, wishing that Nana could be there to hold this baby too.  But, just like Charlie was "there" when Charlee was born, I know he and Nana will be watching over the birth of this little baby too. <3

We were 16 weeks pregnant on Saturday.  My OB and insurance recommended taking 17P (progesterone) shots to help prevent pre-term labor again, so we start those tomorrow.  From now til 35-37 weeks, a home health nurse will come here once a week and give me a shot of hormones to try to keep the placenta doing it's job a little longer, so hopefully this baby stays "baking" a little bit longer than Charlee did.
On a great, exciting note, we have a gender ultrasound scheduled at Early Images this Friday!!!
