I'm Back, Baby!

Hey, guess what?  We have a new baby BOY in our house!

 And we are pretty darn excited about Baby Tommy (as Deeds calls him) or Tommy Bromley (as DH formally refers to him).

 We took the kids to school 2 Fridays ago, then headed to the hospital for my third (and final) c-section.  I swore up and down that this baby was a girl, so I was just shocked to my core (AND DELIGHTED) to have another boy.
Especially one named after this guy. (as well as Morgan's uncle and grandfather- the Thomas's run strong in our families).

The big kids really just adore him- it took DH a little bit to get over the lack of sister thing- she's a little upset at how outnumbered we are.  I assured her whenever we get a puppy playmate for Buddy it will be a girl dog.  She feels better.
 They LOVE when his eyes are open- a frequent occurrence now that we're getting out of that first 2 week pet rock stage.  Also, we are getting into the reflux/colic cry constantly stage that DH excelled at- luckily I got to bypass it with Deeds.  Fortunately, this ain't my first time at the reflux rodeo, so he's already on meds.
 I love this picture- although I wish DH did not have a blue forehead thanks to chalk at school.

We are getting into our schedule and groove, which feels great.  Also?  I am feeling fabulous by the sheer fact of no longer being pregnant!  It was a rough one, but I am so thankful to have this precious, miraculous gift. Who is chunking up quite nicely- born 7 lb. 13 oz., dropped down to about 7 lb. 2 oz. in the hospital, and is already at 8+ pounds!  Way to go Tommy-boy!

I will be back with mini-pumpkin pie recipe (from Highlights magazine, LOL), some book reviews, and various other updates now that I have broken the seal on opening my computer, ha!


  1. Welcome sweet Tommy! I love the name Thomas, it's definitely on our short list for Boy Name Options. Glad to hear you are feeling good and the family of five + pup is adjusting to your new pal xo

  2. Congrats on your new bundle of boy! Now you'll have even more Hot Wheels! Hah! Enjoy and best wishes to your entire family. Babies are a blessing.

  3. A thunderous round of congratulations on your latest addition! And I think the blue-chalked forehead photo of DH and Tommy is absolute perfection!

  4. Congrats! What a wonderful addition. So glad you are back.

  5. YAY! YAY! YAY! Big love to the whole crew!

  6. (Belated) congratulations on your sweet new babe! I'm the eldest with two younger brothers, and I remember being *devastated* at age 7 when my second brother was born. I was all, "I already HAVE one of these." However, I'm sure DH will soon grow to love being the only girl. ;)


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
