12 weeks

I'm 12 weeks with Beasley baby #2! Whoo hoo! Last week in 1st trimester!! I'm praying as soon as the 2nd trimester hits then all the sickness will go and I'll steal my energy back!! Yea...not getting my hopes up! I felt the same way Brodie and it last up to 28 weeks! I guess there must be another little boy in there! I've lost 6 pounds. I am hoping I don't blow up like I did with Brodie! It was rough! This pregnancy has been a bit scarier than last. I've had some spotting and lots of cramps. It has went away but it was the worst feeling, ever. I still can't believe #2 is on the way! I can't even imagine what life is going to be like.

Brodie B. keeps me busy enough to help this pregnancy fly by. He's my sidekick and I love spending my days with him, even if it's while I work. Brodie is demanding the baby is a boy and he refers to him by his "name." He is talking up a storm and he talks so fast, like me. It's no wonder I'm his translator. We toon our first beach trip of the summer and he had a blast. We love the beach. 

Life is good these days. I can finally see light at the end of our long dark tunnel. God is faithful. 

This is my view. This little boy was up until 3 am this morning.

This past Sunday. Brodie & Daddy day.

Like father like son.

Pool day with Gamma this past Saturday while I worked. Can't you tell he's is heaven?

My mom would kill me but I love this picture. Gamma just got moved into her new house so we spent night with her this past Friday.

Kayla, Kaleb, & Cheyanne went with us!

Perfect days.

Today was an "ice day." Everything shuts down because noone wants to be responsible for accidents! Fortunatey, Cheyanne was out of school and Phillip was off of work. I had to work so Chey went to work with me and Brodie stayed home with his daddy. This made him the happiest little boy which brightened my day. There is just something so comforting knowing Brodie is content. He is content at daycare "aka school," but nothing is better than being at home with daddy. Cheyanne and I got to work late because we made a Mcdonald stop. We met Phillip and Brodie for lunch at Longhorn and then went back to work. Phillip and Brodie went to visit Aunt Nancy and Uncle Trey. This is one of Brodie's favorite places to go because he loves his aunt nanny. He had a blast! Cheyanne and I made a quick trip to Publix and then came and home and cooked. We made dorito casserole and Rainbox Lucky Chex mix for dessert. After dinner, Phillip went hunting and Brodie went to sleep. Cheyanne and I cuddled up on the couch and caught up on our shows. I'm now cuddled in bed with Brodie watching "Santa Paws." I'll take days like these all the time! I'm thankful for all my little blessings. 
I forgot to mention I got a beautiful set of dozen roses delivered to me today :)

1st day of Spring 2014

It's the first day of Spring and the sun is shining. There are so many things that I'm thankful for.

Any particular:  Brode. My sunshine. He is growing up everyday and he is the center of our world.

Phillip. I just love him.

Cheyanne. My mini me. She's a good girl.

My jobs. Both are flexible and both are great.

My church. It's new and it's different. It's even a bit uncomfortable but I know that it feels like home.

My family.

My friends.

My struggles: They have taught me true hope, peace, and humility. 

& I'm thankful that no matter what I'm going through, God knew then end before it even began. I trust Him.

Happy Spring!!


This morning as I woke up, my sweet little boy pulled me to his chest and told me "to cuddle mama." As I layed my head on his little chest, I could hear his little heartbeat. I closed my eyes and thought about how thankful I am to have Brodie in my life. 

This afternoon, I layed on a table and patiently waited as the sweetest nurse tried to find another heartbeat. I was nervous. I've had spotting and bad cramps the last few weeks. I also experienced the loss of a nephew/niece due to a miscarriage. The lady finally smiled and I heard it...the sweetest sound in the world. My baby had a healthy, strong heartbeat at 167 bmp.

Today, I'm thankful for heartbeats. They are music to a mama'a ears.
