Baby Boy

I'm an auntie! A little baby boy, who is still known by baby boy, came into the world this morning at 2:33am. He decided to start coming into the world in the middle of Kohls. Jessica was a champ and little man was hard headed, so he was born emergency C-Section and they both came out great. He is blonde hair and blue eyed.

Jalen got to hold him and did great. His biggest worry right now, and I'm serious, is that KiKi is coming home. He asks quite a lot about her.

I will put pictures up soon! :) We're over the 24 hour mark for being up, so we are taking a nap very shortly!

UPDATE on 1.29.09

His name will be Ryan Joel, which is both of their middle names. He's a cutie!! They are soundly home and trying to adjust to "normal" life outside of the hospital.

My Baby Forever

Last night Nick and I were talking about how it is hard to get Jalen to go to sleep anymore. For nap time, I have started letting him watch Elmo with me until he passes out and for night time, I usually fall asleep first. He made the suggestion that maybe it is time to just give Jalen his milk and tell him to go to sleep. I told him no, I didn't want to do that. He just asked why. I said because then that means Jalen is going to be a big boy and not my little baby. He started laughing and told me he wasn't a baby anymore. It's hard to believe he is growing up and turning into a big boy, but you know, he will always be my little baby even when he is 35 and has a family of his own.

But, if anyone does find little pills to give them to make them stop growing, let me know and I will buy a whole pack! :)

There are days that I look around and I thank God for everything I have. Today I stumbled across this blog as I was blog-stalking and after watching the video, I was just sitting in tears. Take a look at this blog and watch the video..


Much love!

He's a Big Boy Now!

I am proud to report that we no longer wear these on a daily basis except at night time...

because we now are a big boy and wear....

A little word to the wise who are trying to potty train their kids.. you can't force them to do it and it will just happen.

The other day Jalen told me he wanted to wear underwear. We had been trying it on and off, but I never made a big deal out of it because I truthfully, didn't want to clean up accidents! Well, the otherday he said it and I tried it. It was like he had been wearing them for years. He pees, poops, and everything in between now. He hasn't had any accidents in 2 days and is doing wonderful. I couldn't be a prouder Mommy! :)

Have no fear though, they make little disposable toliet seat covers for kids and we use those in public!
