Has it really already been a little over 7 weeks since Asa made his grand appearence? Time sure does fly. Asa is such a good baby. He hardly ever cries, he would sleep all night long IF I WOULD LET HIM!!! He is just  so wonderful. BUT let me tell you. Having a baby, after the loss of a baby is HARD, mentally. I have a hard time sleeping at night, because I constantly wake up to make sure he is still breathing, especially since he has breathing problems. I constantly worry that something is going to happen to him. I cry A LOT. Through each milestone, I think "I should have been able to do this with my Seth too". It is just HARD, but is SOOOOOO worth it. I love ALL of my babies soooo much. And even tho I don't get much sleep (because of me), I still ENJOY the midnight feedings, the 2 a.m. feedings. I love waking up at night to feed him. It makes me so happy that I am ABLE to do it, because I wasn't able to with Seth. I remember after I had Seth, and went home, I would awake in the night and just cry, because I should have been waking up to a newborn, not waking up to empty arms. I miss Seth sooo much, and how I wish he was still here with us, to enjoy HIS little brother... Emma just loves Asa, and talks about Seth all of the time. It makes me so happy that she still remembers him! I guess it helps that we talk about him all of the time to her! My life is CRAZY, but it is MY life and I LOVE IT!!!

Update/Seth's birthday...

Hey!! Sorry I have been so scarce lately..I have been busy..and TIRED lol.

I'll start off with Seth's birthday. It went as expected. It was hard, but was a great day. We spent some of the evening at the cemetery. We released a few balloons, and left a few balloons there at his grave. Emma sang happy birthday to him the WHOLE way to the cemetery. It was a day with just the family, as we wanted. Nothing big... We got lots og birthday wishes for him and Holly (Carleigh's mommy) even released a couple of balloons for him. THANKS Holly. It means alot to my family. That's about it for the birthday...

Now for baby updates and family updates...

We are doing great, and Matt made it through all of the layoffs Praise God!!! Emma is getting bigger and smarter everyday..She can be a total mess at times, but is my sweet little princess (or queen as she tells us) lol. She tells me that she is going to help feed Asa, change his diapers, and help give him a bath..but then turns around and tells me that I have to hold her, feed her, and change her diaper like a baby, because she isn't a big girl anymore, she is a baby too!!! lol. I am doing wonderful (just getting bigger by the second). It is hard to get comfy and sleep at I don't get much rest, but it is ok. Asa will be here in no later than about 4 weeks (but I honestly think I will pop before then.) So who knows, it could be in a little as 2 or 3 weeks!!! I am getting so excited, and can;t wait for my little boy to be here!!!

Well that's about it. Thanks for reading and God Bless you all!!

Update on baby..and other things...

Hey! I hope this finds you all doing great!!!

To start off with, I finally have a date for my C-Section. My dcoctor will do it at 39 weeks, on May 20th..but I personally don;t think I will make it that long. He also said that the baby is getting BIG, so I guess after my next ultrasound, depending on hoe BIG he is, Dr. just might change his mind and do it sooner!!! lol.. but if not, just 7 short weeks to go.

Matt's company has had 3 big layoffs, but Thank God, Matt still has a job!!! This last one was 30 guys, I do believe. They are getting rid of the ones who have "bad attitudes", and that are slacking on their work. They have plenty of work, it just isn't started up yet. So as soon as they get the jobs started, some of the guys will get their jobs back. Matt works on service, and they have plenty of work, just the "big" jobs are kind of behing on starting other jobs.

Can you believe that in just 17 short days, We will be celebrating our little Seth's first birthday/angelversary???Man, time sure flies by!!

Well that's all for now..thanks for checking in!!!

God Bless,

10 months ago...

10 months ago we said hello, and goodbye to a very special little boy. I can not believe that our little Seth would have already been 10 months old! Tme sure has gone by fast. In some ways it seems like it was just yesterday that we had him, and in other ways it seems like it has been forever since we held him in our arms! I can still remember just about EVERY single detail about that day! I miss him so much..Here are a few pictures of our Angel!

Well, not too much going on in the Pumphrey house! Matt is still working out of town Monday thru Thursday. I will be so glad when he is working back in town again!! Emma can be a holy terror at times, but I think that is pretty normal for a 2 year old..She wears me out BIG time!! lol..well, I guess that's it for now, but I will add a few pictures!! Here are a couple of Emma, and a couple ultrasound pictures!!

Well, I have decided to make a family blog. I just didn't feel right posting about my new pregnancy on Seth's blog anymore!

I will start off telling you a little about or family!

On Feb. 20, 2007, Matt and I (PJ) got married. shortly after, in April of 2007, we found out we were expecting a baby! Emmaleigh Shea was born on December 2nd 2007. She is our little princess, and can be VERY demanding! When Emma was 9 months old, we found out that we were expecing again. We were sooooo excited! Later on in December of 2008,1 week before Christmas, we found out devastating news. Our new little boy had a fatal birth defect called Anencephaly. I had no clue what this was, until the Doctor told me. We knew from the start that we would cary him to term. The next 4 months went by so fast. On April 16, 2009, I went in for a scheduled C-Section, and Seth Ryan was born. He was with us for a wonderful 11 hours, and passed away in my dad's arms. Later on in Sept. of 2009, we found out that once again, we were expecting another little bundle of joy! We were very excited, but also nervous, knowing that anencephaly can be reoccuring. We had our first ultrsound in November of 2009 (i was only about 10 weeks along), and were pretty sure that this baby was healthy, but not 100% sure. On Jan 4th 2010 I had a routine untrasound, and found out that not only was this baby healthy, but it was onfact another little boy!! Asa Laine will be here in May 2010!!!
Matt works for a company called Gigerich Electrical Inc. (GEI), where he has been since July of 2007, and I am almost completed with my MEdical Transcription course. Right now MAtt is working out of town, and is only able to be home Friday-Sunday of every week, but that will change soon, as their job is almost finished!

Well enough for now!
