Whose a clutz???

Ok so yes I am no longer pregnant and sure I should have my balance back.. but nope not me, I am more clutzy than ever. Here is the after math of a fall I had yesterday coming down the stairs. We put up a gate at the bottom of the stairs so that the dog would not come upstairs, well I didn’t obviously clear the gate with my leg, so I went face plant style onto the tile, scraped my leg pretty badly and broke my finger.. LOL I laugh now but when it happened I was scared to death. Luckily Danny works only 3 minutes away so he came home and cleaned me up and the mess, love him..

What was I thinking we have glass plates and mugs, knives, forks, yogurt (which was all over the wall), wrappers, bottles, and probably more but the picture doesn’t show everything haha…all I could think about was ho happy I was I wasn’t carrying Luke.

He is wearing 3 month clothes and is in size 1 diapers

Can lift his head and turn it from side to side while on his tummy

He loves his baths until its time to come out

Not to happy when placed on his tummy

Puts himself to sleep like a big boy in his crib

Smiles ALL the time!!

Spits up after EVERY feeding!!!

Likes to pee pee on mommy and daddy all time

Does not like to be swaddled, he likes to be free and flail his little arms

Likes to pucker his lips when you talk to him

Could sit in his lounger all day if you let him

Have found ” I am a child of God” is the only song that settles him down

Only fusses when he’s hungry.. SOO lucky

Has been to the ER with what we thought was RSV, but was not, just bad nasal congestion

Currently has oral and diaper thrush.. not a pleasant thing. Mommy has it too 🙁

Loves deep voices and falls asleep to Baby Einstein almost instantly

We feel so blessed to have this amazing son and baby sent to us straight from Heaven. He truly is a miracle and a joy in our lives. I love spending time with him and miss him soo much when he is merely just taking a nap lol.. Being a parent is the greatest job, I feel so lucky to be able to stay home with Luke during the week. I want him to stay little forever, but look forward to lives milestones he will make.

Happy 1 month baby Lukey… Mommy and Daddy love you!

Newborn’s Conversation with God

A newborn’s conversation with God

att1330651

A baby asked God, ‘They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?’ God said, ‘Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.’

The child further inquired, ‘But tell me, here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but si ng and smile to be happy.’ God said, ‘Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel’s love and be very happy.’

Again the child asked, ‘And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language?’ God said, ‘Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.’
‘And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?’ God said, ‘Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.’

‘Who will protect me?’ God said, ‘Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.’

‘But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.’ God said, ‘Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you.’

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth cou ld be heard and the child hurriedly asked, ‘God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.’

God said, ‘You will simply call her, ‘Mom.’

Luke’s Birth Story

Luke Daniel Weber

Luke Daniel Weber

The morning was starting off like any other morning, Danny headed to work at 7:15 am and I was still laying in bed watching the morning news. As I was laying there at 7:30 am, only 15 minutes after Danny had left, my water broke laying bed. I remember someone telling me that if you can’t stop the water coming out, your water is breaking and your not peeing. Well i definitely could not stop it. I had a lot of fluid so everything was soaked, I am just grateful it happened then and not in a hour when I was planning on heading to target to get some last minute shopping done.. The first thing I did was call Danny, which had only been at work for 5 minutes. I told him my water had broke and to come home. He was pretty excited and headed straight home. As soon as I got off the phone with him I jumped into the shower. I knew I had some time before this baby was coming and I didn’t know how long it would be until I got to shower again, and I just had to shave my legs, come on 🙂 Danny was so great, he packed up everything into the car and got everything ready. We were both so excited and kinda nervous as well. We left the house at 8 am and checked into the hospital at 8:30 am. They hooked me up to a IV and started me on fluids right away. The nurse checked me and I was at a 4.5 at 9 am. My contractions started on pretty heavy. I was having them every two/three minutes and wanted a epidural. The anesthesiologist was in a C-section so I had to wait a good hour in a half until I got my epidural. At 10:30 am I finally received my epidural, which was probably the worst part. The actual needle didn’t hurt but the position I had to sit in while having contractions was the worse. Danny could feel my pain I am sure while I was squeezing his finger off. I don’t want to say the epidural relieved all my pain, because that would be a lie. I could definitely still feel the pressure, which was good for helping me push, but the pain was still evident. At 11 am I had moved to a 6.5 and then at 11:45 am I had jumped to a 8.5. I was moving very quick. The next little bit wasn’t too bad, I was still having contractions but with the epidural they were manageable. The nurse came in again to check me at 12:30 pm and I was at  10. YAY!! So they let me sit there for a good 30 minutes before we started pushing, I guess this was only to see of the baby would come down a little more so I wouldn’t have to push as long. Carolyn Bradford, the midwife delivered Luke, and she came in at this time. The pushing was straining, but not at all as bad as I thought it was going to be. Danny, my mom, his mom, and my sis Melissa were in the room for the birth with me. I am so glad they were there for the support. I pushed for one hour and Luke finally made his presence at 2:03 pm. He was beautiful!! They placed him on me immediately after he was out, that was the most memorable and emotional time of the whole event. Holding my little one and falling immediately in love with him was so amazing. It’s truly a miracle and the most spiritual experiences I have ever had.

Here he is right after delivery. So perfeect!!!

Danny and I got to spend time with him alone for awhile after the nurses checked him out before the family got to come in the room and meet little Luke. He is the best baby even after being delivered he barely let out a cry and wasn’t fussy at all for the rest of the stay at the hospital, so lucky.. He is truly a great baby. We only had to stay for one night in the hospital so we got to go home the next day on Christmas Eve. Recovery isn’t very exciting, but I have to admit I have been very lucky, I am getting around fine and am recovering pretty fast. The day after was pretty draining, but it’s amazing how you can go with less sleep when your doing it for someone you love. I am breast feeding so sleeping for 2-3 hour intervals and staying up for awhile in the middle of the night isn’t the most fun and comfortable thing to do, but it’s amazing how you just do what you need to do when your responsible for another human being. Being a mother is the greatest gift I have ever been given, I am so thankful to Heavenly Father for entrusting me with this precious spirit. I love you Luke Daniel Weber!!!
