Mommy Monday

Hmmm... "Mommy Monday".  Has a nice ring to it.  
Maybe I'll make every Monday a Mommy-related post. 


Since today is my youngest son's birthday, I thought I'd take a break from writing anything running-related. Or heel-related.  Or Pigeon Pose-related.

Instead, I'm going to share some pictures of the day my little "Mr. Big Stuff" was born.
I can hardly believe it's been five years since I went in for my scheduled C-section...
and got to see and hold my baby for the first time!


A very pregnant me, just before heading out the door to go to hospital.
It's amazing how much a stomach can stretch!




I'll spare you from having to see the gore of the C-section (my husband took lots of pictures)
and let you see Mr. Big Stuff cleaned up and fresh out of the womb.



The first time "The Professor" (my oldest) saw his new baby brother.
He wasn't all that impressed.





All of my men together... a couple days later & at home.


We were a little surprised when we found out we were going to have another baby.
It was difficult getting used to the idea that our lives were about to be made
much more complicated than we had envisioned.

But, we would never change any of it!

Mr. Big Stuff is my affectionate, loving, sweet little guy!
I cannot imagine life without his mischievous little smile, funny antics, and sparkling eyes.


Happy 5th Birthday to my little man!

Love the pictures! Our sons are close in age... my son just turned 5 in December. We are going to have his birthday party this weekend though! It is too tough during the holidays to get a party together. I hope that you have a wonderful day!

You are so blessed, your guys are all so cute! I love seeing older siblings loving on their little brothers and sisters, very sweet! It's amazing how little ones change our lives in ways we never expected and now, it's hard to imagine how our lives could be any different! HB to your little guy and this was so sweet!

Happy Birthay to Mr. Big Stuff! What a sweet baby he was, and a sweet 5 year old now.

I had to laugh a bit that his big brother wasn't impressed. Same thing here! Kids are so funny.
