Monday, July 5, 2010


So apparently time flies when your caring for a baby, a husband, taking care of a household, working full time , paying bills, and trying to still maintain some sort of normalcy with society and friends. Its been about six months since Ive blogged and a lot has happend! We found out we were having a boy, and SO thrilled about it. I was put on modified bed rest at 33 weeks for cramping and spotting. My original due date was June 15th (exactly eighteen months after our Taylor was born, and my mom's bday too!) and after a few sono's they changed the date to the 22nd. My water broke after being out on the Sacramento River with some close friends on June 13th, and Lucas Bennett was born June 14th, at 4:57 am weighing 7 lbs 14.2 ounces and 19 inches long. I was in labor for about five hours, pushed for about 20 min and went home the next day without any major complications. Thank god!

So Taylor is adjusting to being a big sister. She has had some moments of pure temper tantrums, and melt downs, but for the most part it is getting better. She is sleeping through the night in her own bed, and Lucas is still up every hour or so, ( somewhat expected with a newborn). Im exhausted beyond belief, but I know this is only temporary and when Luke starts sleeping, all will be well again! My husband has been wonderful and such a support throughout everything. He is always there helping when I need it and ready to jump when I say the word. LOVE him so much....

Taylor is getting so big now. She is such a talker, talking in her own little language all day long, always holding something up to her ear like its a phone and she's a CEO of some major company. She always has to have the last word, whether your just talking to her or telling her no. She loves mac n cheese, and some days its the only thing I can get her to eat. She loves giving her brother kisses and hugs and is so proud of herself when she brings me his blanket or a diaper. We havent started potty training yet, but her toilet sits in the bathroom and she gets more curious everyday about what its purpose is...

We are done with having the kiddos though, two is enough and one of each is just perfect! I cant waite until Taylor is old enough so we can get pedicures together and go shopping. Joe is excited to have his fishing buddy and hunting partner.
