baby #2 / Luke Blane

Where does one start on such things? It’s truly amazing how the brain works… I clearly remember telling Greg while I was sobbing in the throes of labor to go make his appointment RIGHT NOW because I am never going through this again! And here we are on day three and I’m trying so hard to remember just how miserable I really was and how determined I remember being that this was definitely our last child. Which […]

Oh my goodness, HE’S here!

He’s here! He’s here! And he’s a BOY! Coming from a family of a whole lot of girls, I’m still in a little bit of shock but this one, man… he’s the dearest thing and has stolen my heart. I can’t stop staring! Mr. Luke Blane Nettles Born July 27 at 7:21pm 6lbs 8oz of tiny goodness Welcome to the world little buddy! We love you more than we know how to express.

^^And this is what you get when you’re too lazy to get out the tripod… or put on a shirt, apparently.^^ Before you get too excited, we are still only 38 weeks but this was my original due date that I was not so secretly hoping would reveal itself as the actual due date ;) But really, this pregnancy has gone by so fast, I’m happy this little one has made itself comfy in there. […]

Three things: 1) We made it! We can officially have our baby at home now! It was touch and go for a while there ;) BUT it really cemented in my mind how much I really don’t want to go to the hospital. So YAY! happy day. 2) I feel like when I first got pregnant with Abbie, 37 weeks was the standard full term… and then by the time we had her it was […]

How far along? 32 Weeks Weight Gained: 31 lbs …it’s really hard to type that without commenting in some sort of HOLY way Symptoms: Let’s just go through what I can’t wait to be done with in a couple of months: sneezing and staying dry. having a brain that works efficiently. having some form of energy. not having to dress an egg shaped body every day. overall not feeling huge. not dreading bathing suit season. these sorts of […]

How far along? 28 weeks although midwife now thinks 30… oh this is exciting, isn’t it? Weight Gained: My scale said I weigh 122lbs heheheh I’m the skinniest pregnant woman of all time! And then I went to my prenatal appointment which corrected my broken machine to reflect that no no, you’ve gained 29 pounds. Holy my. Symptoms: Pregnancy symptoms are embarrassing. Movement: This one is the most active little thing – especially in the middle of the […]

How far along? 24ish weeks – last time I went to my midwife she was convinced we were farther along so 24-26ish weeks ;) This should make for some interesting betting when the time comes… Weight Gained: 21 lbs. boom. Symptoms: I have so much to do but I’ve been using Abbie’s second nap to take my own MUHAHAH and it is so lovely. A couple weeks ago I had the fun sensation of feeling empty yet […]

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Happy Halfway! Happy all happy things day! I just love today. Isn’t green just the happiest color? Unfortunately I can’t seem to find any of my old green clothes so we had to settle for army green which you know, is a little more communist and a little less HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS but you know, we work with what we’ve got. Abbie can make up for it in all her adorable […]

Because Greg said my crappy mirror pictures were no good. As shown below.  Yes dear, your sister got the big camera and you get this. You’re welcome. OK i’ll try to make more of an effort to 1) bathe and 2) document this little one better than that  ^^ because that ^^ is just sad. I mean, my eye. Oh you didn’t notice? Never mind then. Hey! remember this? I probably can’t do it every […]

I got to feel you kick last night and it was just as magical as I remember. Thanks for that, baby. You’ve been such a little joy in there not making momma uncomfortable at all, that I worry if you are real sometimes. Your sister has been continuing with the many kisses and practicing with her baby dolls. She sure loves those dollies.. you’re gunna be like a dream come true when she finally gets […]
