Home Sweet Home

Oh, how things have changed at the Martin household. For the better of course!! Thomas is doing wonderful. We got home on Thursday last week and have been adjusting everyday to our new family. Gracie loves her brother very much and wants to hold him and play with him but doesn't completely understand when we tell her to be she needs to be gentle he is a baby. She is not completely adjusted to him coming into her life but she is slowly getting better. She has her whining moments and sometimes has a melt down when Tommy or I leave the room or even when we just simply correct her for doing something she is not suppose too. Hopefully that will change here soon! Thomas is eating very well and sleeping alot. Fortunately he has only been getting up twice at night to eat. That has been a huge blessing for Tommy and I. We are so thankful for a new member of the family and praise God for his safe arrival and good health. Here are a few pictures.

He's Here!

Thomas Clarence Martin III was born on Tuesday July 22 at 9:41 am. I woke up having contractions at 4:30am on Tuesday and went to the hospital at 7:00am and was 8cm. Two and a half hours later Thomas arrived. This delivery went way quicker then Gracie! We are now home and everyone is doing great. We are going to try and get some sleep before the next feeding so we will update pictures tomorrow! Thanks for all your prayers. God is Good!!!

Officially Due

Well it has come! My due date is officially today! I had a doctors appointment this morning and I am still 2cm but my cervix is now 80% thinned out. So at least there is some change. My doctor told me that he only wants me going about a week past my due date before I am to be induced. I really don't want to have to be induced so I am praying that he will come on his own this week! Please keep Thomas in your prayers!

Some of the greatest friends ever!

I have come to realize that we are a very blessed family because we have some of the most wonderful, thoughtful, amazing friends ever! Last week our good friends Chris and Shelley hosted a surprise baby shower for me. Tommy was in on it the whole time and never lead me to think that something was going on. Of course, when we arrived to the Talbott's house for what I thought was dinner and all of our friends where there to yell SURPRISE! I am 9 months pregnant and emotional still so of course I cried!! HA HA Thank you to all of you who came and shared that special moment with us! And a special thanks to Chris and Shelley! I love you guys!! Now here are a few pictures to share. On a side note I must say Eli was great! He had special hats for some people, he helped us unwrap our gifts and told us what each one was in case we couldn't tell, entertained the ladies and helped Gracie with her drink! HA HA He was such a big help!
