A Few Changes

Well, we are about to make a few changes, and I am super nervous about them. Robbie starts school on Monday the 25th. I know it will be good for him, and me. But after having him every day for the past 8 weeks, it will still be hard. I go back to work on the 28th. I am really looking forward to it. We get a whole new set of kids with a whole new set of challenges. It will keep me busy. Wesley is graduating in the 12th of Sept. He is really looking forward to that. His dream will finally come true. I am so proud of him. He has worked so hard to get to this point. Well that is it. Wish us luck!!!

Trying Something New

I started this blog a long time ago, but never really kept up with it. But now with a new baby, it might be a good idea. Anyways, we have extended our family and welcomed a new baby boy on June 29, 2008. His name is Robert Michael. He is definatley a gift from God. After being told that we wouldn't be able to conceive a child naturally without any fertility treatments, we proved the doctors wrong.
Robert is wonderful. He is a good mix of both me and Wesley, although he does favor his daddy more. He weighed 8lbs. 10oz. and was 21 in. Unfortunatley though we had some feeding problems and he lost almost a whole pound after birth. So I ended up having to breast feed and formula feed, which we ended up just formula feeding. He is now a whooping 10lbs+ at a month and a half old. He is so strong too. From the moment he was born, he was holding his head up and checking out the world. And now, he loves to stand and kick. And watch out when he gets mad, you might get a black eye.
Unfortunatley I am not going to be a stay-at-home mom. I have to go back to work. Robert will be starting daycare at a wonderful little place about a block from my house. I got a chance to visit it, and everyone seems real nice. I am going to have a hard time leaving him at first, but I will adjust.
Well me and Wes are doing great. Wes is in the middle of the police academy and is loving every minute of it. He is graduating in September. For him this is definatley a dream come true. I am still working at the school as a paraprofessional. I am excited about this school year because I get a whole new set of kids and a whole new set of challenges.
