this week..

Sunday was my hubbys 21st birthday, which he spent in Iraq.
Some of the people in his unit celebrated with him- thankfully.
As of last night, my baby boy is sick. Thanks to Grandma.. lol
He's having a difficult time keeping his formula down..
But it hasnt gotten bad enough for us to need to go to the hospital.
Hopefully, it won't get that bad..

He is almost a month old..
I can't believe it's been that long already..
He's getting so big!!

3 weeks already..

I can't belive my baby boy is already 3 weeks old..
It feels like it's been days rather than weeks..
He's starting to get on a feeding and sleeping schedule..
Which will help me out a lot!
He's also starting to sleep in his own bed!
He's getting so much bigger already..
Starting to outgrow some of his newborn clothes..
It's crazy how fast he's growing..

I feel horrible.. Karter's been up alot over the past few nights.. Not feeling too well.. So, I'm over tired, and getting sick, but oh well. Karter fusses and doesn't sleep much during the night, but then in the morning.. He doesn't want me.. He cries until I hand him over to someone else.. I feel like he doesn't like me... I don't know what to do anymore.. I feel horrible.. What am I supposed to do?! His doctor says "it's normal" which I feel is complete bologna, but what am I gonna do?! Feel bad and do what I can to keep him from crying so much..

Last week we found out that my 17 year old brother is lactose intollerant. We are having the hardest time finding foods he can still eat. I was doing research a little while ago (while the baby slept) and I found that there are several companies that make lactose free foods- pizza, lasagna, mac n cheese; We are so excited. Now.. the only issue is finding them in a store near us! The closest one seems to be almost an hour away.. Oh well. The things we do for food.. lol! Hopefully, it'll get better.

My newbie

Well, since my last post a lot has happened- My hubby came home for R&R, and my son was born! He's been keeping me pretty busy. My hubby is back over seas now.. Him leaving was soo much harder this time than last time.. but that's because Karter was there.. We thought it would be easier, but it only made it worse... Since he left, I've gone into super mommy mode.. Always cleaning, and baking, and organizing..
My favorite part of this... I gave birth to my son, and 5 days later was back in my normal clothes! I have however, kept on 10 pounds (which I'm really hoping to keep forever!!) I'm super excited! <3

Our very first family picture.
Mark, Karter and I.

He looks like a baby doll... <3
