Yesterday Sucked

As many of you know, Eric and I switched Pediatricians. Yesterday, was Nora's 2 week appt with her new Pediatrician. We were asked if we had any concerns....I told her that she was eating, pooping and sleeping. Nothing that I could think of.....she asked me if we had scheduled her hip ultrasound due to her being breech. I told her that we didn't because when I questioned the other Pediatrician, he said that it wouldn't be necessary. Her hips looked fine. Then, she listened to her heart. She asked if anyone had mentioned her having a heart murmur. My throat closed up and my heart stopped beating for a second.....I told her no....Anyway, long story short....From 11:00am - 3:30pm, I was a mess. The waiting for her ultrasound was torture. Eric and I were so overjoyed when the Dr. told us that she was perfectly normal and she would outgrow it. Thank you God. Forgive me for wanting to punch Nora's 1st Pediatrician in the balls.
Oh....and her hip ultrasound will be in 4 weeks.

Rocking Baby

Asher kept singing "Rocking Baby".....over and over to Nora. Very cute. About ten minutes later as we were reading a book in his bed, he told me that he wished I was thin again so I wouldn't squish him. Not so cute.

Asher's Cow

This was Asher's "Colorful Cow" that he made in Art class. :)


I was responding to an email this morning, and realized that it would be nice if I shared this with everyone that I love - Trying to get into a routine. Sleepy, but soooooo happy. I just stare at her and can't believe she's finally all ours. She is healthy and beautiful. I can't wait for you to hold her. She's perfect. Asher is such a good big brother. I was worried about how he would adjust, but so far, he has been great. Anyway, we found out yesterday that we would be going to Quantico. I think initially, Eric was a little disappointed, but it does have many positives. It is probably the best for our family at this point in time. I was trying to figure out how we would get our little cars, two kids, our stuff and sanity out to California......this move to Quantico will be so much easier. Having family closer will be so nice too. It will all be good. Heck, if not, it's only 9 months long. We can handle anything for that amount of time! :) What I am worried about is Eric deploying afterwards. But, I can't worry about that far ahead. Eric can work on his masters bit by bit and we'll just pay out of pocket. Life is good and we feel beyond blessed. Anyway, I miss you! I hope you are doing great! I need to get to studying Reiki now! I can actually sit in comfort!!! No more agony!!! Love you!!!

January 14, 2013

Monday morning at 8:30am, my water broke. Eric quickly came home from work. Asher went with a family friend and Eric and I headed to the hospital. Once we got to the hospital, I let the nurse know that she was breech during my ultrasound on Friday. Once my Dr. got there, we did another ultrasound and she confirmed that we would have to do a c-section because she was still breech. I was so nervous.....about everything. But, Eric squeezed my hand the whole time and at 12:09pbm, Nora Elaine Roby was born. She was 6 lbs, 18 inches long and completely perfect.
It was a totally different experience than when I gave birth to Asher. I was way more nervous, scared, in pain and a little wiser. Wise enough to know that although, the last couple months I have been completely uncomfortable and miserable.....although, that night I was in and out of pain laying in my hospital alone....although, there are going to be sleepless nights ahead and emotional will all be worth it. Every second. Eric, Asher and I are so proud to bring her home and give her all the love that we can possibly give her. Nora Elaine Roby has completed our family in every way.

Roby Family 2012

Happy New Year! I am so looking forward to 2013! There are a lot of changes coming this year. Baby Nora will be here before we know it and soon after will be a move to either Monterey, CA or Quantico, VA. Exciting blessings are sure to come with stress, anxiety and obstacles that our family will face in 2013. I pray that Eric and I will have the patience, love and humor that it will take to deal with it all.


I am so proud of my family. I feel blessed in so many ways. My resolution for 2013 is to be a better wife, mother, daughter and friend. Happy New Year!!!!
