3 months old

Yes its official, I am a terrible mommy blogger. Life has been so different and crazy, which I expected I just feel so bad I have not kept everyone updated. So here is the latest with us :)

Nicolas is now 3 1/2 months old almost and he continues to make us smile and laugh everyday. He has recently found his hands and cant believe how neat they are. He will sit for an hour just moving them in front of his face. He has also figured out that they can go into his mouth, again pretty funny site. He has started talking to us more. His favorite spot in the world is on his changing table. He LOVES LOVES to lay on his changer and he will just smile and laugh for as long as he lays on it. I think we could leave him on it for all day and he would love it. He is now sleeping about 9 hours a night. Its a great thing, they only thing is that he sleeps on his tummy and in the night scoots his little butt all the way to the top of his crib then cant scoot anymore and will wake up crying. So if we could get him to stop night scooting then it would be better :) We got him an exascauser and he is small for it so we prop him up with blankets and he is learning to look at things and follow them with his eyes. It's amazing to see how he grows everyday.

He is now about 13 1/2 pounds, wearing a size 3 diaper, wearing 0-3 month clothes and size 1 shoes. His hair is staying a light blond and his eyes are becoming a lighter blue everyday just like his daddy's.
Love to everyone!!
Nick, Alisha and Nicolas

Nicolas Playing at 7 weeks

Yep I cant believe it either, 7 weeks since my baby boy was brought into our lifes. Life here in clarksville is crazy. After nicks wreck we had to go out and get a new car, after looking we ended up with a 2010 Maxium ( of course I only looked at cars with 0% intrest! ). Its nice and it has more horsepower then the camary did so that really got nicks attention! When I find a moment I will post some pictures of it. Other then that I am starting to go back to work more, of course taking nicolas with me and all our customers are so excited to see and meet him! I cant tell you what amazing customers we have, at least 4 of our customers actually brought me a baby gift. People keep telling me how great it is I can take nicolas with me to work, I tell them if I didnt cathy and gail would tell me to walk back out the door and go get him! :) Mom will be comming down to visit this week Im so excited. I know she is having some MAJOR nicolas withdrawls! If I miss a day on texting her his daily picture I will get a text from her asking where its at :) All in all things are going great. I am so blessed, Nick is alive and unhurt, nicolas is healthy and happy and I am doing great and loving every moment of this woonderful life God has blessed me with.

So Much In Such Little Time

First off I want to thank GOD for Nick being safe and alive. Last friday morning nick was comming home from PT and a lady on the other side of the highway hydroplaned lost control of her car, came across the 50ft medium spinning around and came into nicks lane on the other side of the higway. He had no where to go and slammed head first into her and spun into the medium grassy area. He thank goodness was not hurt, just sore. She was worse off but ok we believe, we went to the hospital later friday to try and she if she was ok and she had been released. Nick was in our new 2010 camry that we have had for 6 months. We are hoping that they total the car because a crash like that at 70 mph did alot of damage. The car will arrive at the body shop tomm and they will start to estimate it and see what has been done to it. Below are the pictures that nick took friday morning. I have not seen the car yet but will tomm.
As for everthing else things are great. Nicolas is getting so big so fast. He is starting to try and hold his head up. He is sleeping about 5 hours at night so thats pretty good and he is on a 3-4 hour eating schedule during the day. I am just loving every minute with my wonderful family! I go tuesday for my post partdum visit, I cant believe its been almost 7 weeks :)

This is a view from the front, the other lady's car is in the background, she is closer to the side that nick was driving on.
This is a view from the drivers side of the car, where the car had the most damage, they had to cut the battery out of the car.

This is a view from the passangers side, you can see how big the medium is that she spun acrossDaddy and peanut resting on the couchMy baby boys first Mohawk :)

One Month Old

I can not believe that my baby boy, yes MY child is one month old today. It's still unreal to me and seems crazy to call him my son. Crazy but the most amazing thing ever. This past month has been pure joy and yes some insane times. Times where Nick and I have been going on no sleep and wondering how in the world we even managed to dress ourselfs that day ( trust me there were days that we just stayed in our pj's all day ). We are trying to learn all the cries of nicolas' but that will take some time! Nick returns to work tomm so our whole schedule will be up in the air now and not sure how this will work but it will somehow. Below is a link to nicolas' newborn picture session for those who have not seen it. Mollie did an amazing job and we cant wait until his 3 month pics! Also take a look at some of his pictures from today. Also tonight is the first time that we are trying to have him sleep in his crib, my anexity is deff up on this one. I mean look at his presious face in this pictures, its so hard to leave that baby alone in a room all on his own :(

My Baby Boy Is 2 Weeks Old

I can not believe that it has been two weeks since one of the most amazing things in my life happened. These past two weeks have been AMAZING, some of the best of my life. Nicolas is doing great, he had his two week appt today and he is up to 6 lbs and 3 ozs. The doctor said he is growing good, but he is still a little rugrat :) His next appt will be his two month appt. His umbilical fell off today, WHOO HOO! Also nick and I have also both been peed on when changing a diaper, nicks pee on me actually went and hit the wall :) Here are some pictures from his first two weeks of life.

What A Difference A Year Makes

This day a year ago is much different then today. Last year the hopes and dreams that I had carried for so many years are a reality today. I spent last year with my pregnant friend wondering every hour if she was about to go into labor (she was due on Dec 23) and this year I am the pregnant one who is only 5 1/2 weeks from her due date. I never thought that this year it would be me, me the one who couldnt drink the beer last night, or had to take the zofran after dinner so that I didnt get sick :) It's more of a miracle then I ever could have imagined. I am so very very blessed.

Well as of now we are 5 1/2 weeks from D day :) I am so ready for him to be born! The sickness is really getting to me. I cant keep food down, I am sick to my stomach all the time and when I do eat I am lucky if I eat a handful or two of food at a time. I really really just want to go back to normal life where eating is not a challange that I dread so much every day. Also I am starting to have more trouble breathing and a cough comming back after getting off the IV's. I think it is a mixture of pregnancy and asthma b/c taking an inhaler does give me some relief. I just wonder if I can go on for 5 more weeks with my chest feeling like this but one day at a time.

At our 34 week appt last monday nicolas was weighing in at 5lb 5oz!!!! Also he had turned head down so that is great! That explains all the kicks and punches in the different spots that I feel them now. I am being seen every week from now on and will have a growth ultrasound every week also. Last monday the tech was able to point out that he has hair!! It was so neat to see it waving around on his head. I said with all this sickness he darn better have hair :) Hopefully on monday we will be getting a better set of pictures from a different ultrasound place at the hospital and I can post them for all to see. Well I am heading back to my indent spot on the couch :)

Love to you all! Below is a picture of the best christmas present that Nick and I ever recieved....
