New Great Nephew

So my niece who had a few miscarriages in the past few years finally did it!  She delivered a Happy and Healthy Baby Boy!  What makes a 26yr old girl grow up a baby does!  I am so proud of her she has grown up so much these last few months!  We are just in love with this little guy!  In a few short months he will have 4 brand new cousins to grow up with! Our family has truly been blessed this year! 

He arrived on:
Thursday, May 24th, 2009

At Approx 5:15 PM
He weighted 7lb 11oz
He was 21 inches long


He was perfect!  Welcome to our family DeVontae Tyrell Davis!  We all love you more than you know! 

My niece was always more like the little sister I never had.  I was 9 when she was born and we basically just grew up together.  I have wanted to smack her a few times for some bad choices she made but always supported her...

Now to just wait for our Quad squad to arrive!

16 weeks and counting

Its hard to believe that Sandy is already 16 weeks along...  Alot of things are changing quickly!  Hopefully on May 22nd we find out the genders of our pumpkins... Then we can label them by name instead of A,B,C,D!  Elizabeth has said she wants 3 little sisters and 1 little brother.  We shall see if she is right or not.  Sandy is almost as big as she was when she had Lizzy...  Poor thing is so uncomfy!  The only other change is we broke down and got Lizzy the dog she wanted. We will see how long this last! 
This is a picture of Sandy a week ago! Its crazy that our little ones could be here between 12-16 weeks from now....

You want me to eat what!!???

You want me to eat WHAT?!?!  These were the thoughts that ran through my head last Tuesday when I had my appointment with the Nutritionist over at the Perinatologist's office when she told me in no uncertain terms that she wants me to be eating 2800-3000 calories a day and gaining at least 50lbs!  I knew I would need to put on weight with the quads, but I was NOT expecting to hear a dietician tell my overweight self that she wants me to eat 3000 calories a day!  Along with the 3000 calories, it must be broken into 20 OUNCES of protein a day...that is so much protein that I feel sick...this is so many calories that I get tired of looking at food.  I mean I know I was not a skinny girl before this pregnancy, but I know I never ate this much food.  Let's talk about the water I have to drink least 128ounces of water a day!  So I am going to float away haha...It is amazing the things we do for our children.  I feel like I am having to eat us out of house and home...and I don't think I will EVER look at food the same way again...I just look at the protein content first and see if it is high in protein I will eat it...calcium is needed as well, and so are veggies and fruits, and whole grains and cereal...I swear it is like I have to eat a meal every couple of hours to get all of this in for the day...I just keep telling myself it is not forever and it is for the babies...but it sure is a lot...I hope one day my kiddos look back on this and realize what mom went through to make sure we were healthy and I hope they appreciate it!  All I know is after they get here, mom is going on a serious diet and exercise program to get this excess weight off...I think it may only include a couple of protein shakes and one meal a day...because right now I am eating enough meals to not even want any for a long long time! =)  Hope everyone else is doing well!
