As it is now.

As most of you (all of you) know, we've had a pretty big change here at the Stubblefield house.

Our sweet baby boy Paul Blakely Stubblefield was born May 17th, 2013.
He was born at 8:38 AM.
He weighed 8lbs 6oz and was 20 inches long.

We love him so much.
He's beginning to fit right into this family just fine.

Things are definitely different, but they are definitely more fun!!

I had all these warnings from people before Paul was born to make sure that we don't leave Robert out, and that we treat the boys equally.
I have to say that since Paul was born, it's like I love Robert even more (which I didn't think was possible.)

I had spent the last few months before Paul was born everyday just playing with Robert. We cuddled and read books, played with his toys, and did special things because it wasn't going to be long before he had a little brother and we couldn't give him all the attention.
I appreciate and cherish those days. I love my sweet boy Robert.
He's gotten so big... and helps us so much.
I love my boys. All three of them.
My husband has always been such a help to me. He's always gone above and beyond to do things that aren't in his job description as husband/father to help me and to help our children.
I wouldn't have made it these last 11 days without him.
He has taken complete care of me and my boys.
He's fixed us meals, washed our clothes, cleaned the house, cared for Robert, and changed one too many stinky diapers! I have no idea what I'm going to do when he goes back to work Friday!
He's the most amazing man ever and I love him now more than I ever realized was possible.
I am blessed to have him as a husband, and my children are blessed to have him as a father.

Hopefully in the next few weeks I will be feeling better from having surgery, can stop having crying spells all the time, and things will get a little more back to "normal". Although, I have no idea what that is now.
I'm just ready to be able to cook food for my family and pick up my toddler whenever I want.

I thank the Lord everyday for my family and especially for the new sweet addition to our family.
He's calling for food now, so I'm off. But, I just wanted to share a little for now :)

2 Weeks.

Have you ever thought about how quickly two weeks can pass by?

I had my OB appointment this morning. We were talking about the size of the baby and how things were going.
Without going into details, we pretty much can count on having a baby by the 21st of May....
That's 2 weeks away.
I've been starting to get a little nervous.
Two weeks ago seems like just yesterday.
I know these days pass by so quickly now, but I can only imagine how quickly these two weeks will pass.
I'm so excited to meet baby Paul.
I'm also very nervous.
Two babies under the age of 2.
We are so blessed and I am so thankful to the Lord for blessing us with children.
I hope to be the Christian Mother that my boys need.
I hope one day to give them both back to the Lord.

I guess I need to get busy on some of my last minute projects for the baby.
I can't wait!!! :)

I can't believe this was my baby boy 19 months ago!!!
