My second daughter Luna James was born at 7 pounds, 11 ounces and 21 inches. I often wondered how it would feel to have another child. How do you have enough room to love more than one when up until this point you thought that one you already had occupied every square inch of your heart. Well, God has done such a good job making this absolutely possible, because I am so in LOVE with this little girl and even more in love with my sweet Lily than ever before.
I didn't sleep a wink last Sunday night. Luna was due that day and because of my Gestational Diabetes (G.D.), I knew that if she didn't arrive Sunday, that I would have to be induced Monday. For someone who is a big fan of "planning", I thought I would be over-joyed at ...

BABY BLOG #12 Which one is better????

So, I am into the home stretch of pregnancy now as I will be 36 weeks this weekend. Crazy how time flies when you are pregnant. Ok, not really (lol) but I am definitely excited and ready to meet this new baby girl Luna James. I can't say it has been the easiest pregnancy but honestly, it doesn't matter because the end result is such a wonderful miracle it is worth every single minute!
I went to the Doctor yesterday and she is at six pounds and looking good. I feel that I am pretty close to being prepared at home too. We still have a bunch of necessity items to get but we are going to try and tackle that this weekend. One thing I can say that we don't need are clothes! Our wonderful friends and family have definitely made sure Luna is going to be one ...

BABY BLOG #11 My Baby Shower!

Posted By: Cindy Simmons · 9/4/2012 11:45:00 AM

I was fortunate to have a Baby Shower for Luna James this past weekend. It was such a lovely lovely day.  Some of my favorite girls, Alisa, Jenn, Heather Branch and her mom Gail, got together and planned a really beautiful party.
My mom has been in town visiting this month so I was pretty happy that she was able to be here. The girls who came, well, I just adore all of them and they all have such kind and generous hearts. We had a Mexican feast at La Paz Restaurant in Vinings so that means I got to stuff my face with jalapeno poppers. SO yummy! The whole place was decorated in bright pinks and yellows and it looked amazing. Heather has CLEARLY learned alot from Pinterest because her decorations were fabulous! (Whoever says Pinterest is a waste of time is soooo wrong-lol) There were also bright ...

So, last week at 28 weeks into my pregnancy, I went for my pregnancy glucose test and didn't pass. I then had to return the office a few days later to take the fasting three hour glucose test. That was a littttttle more difficult considering you have to fast starting at midnight the evening before.  Being that I get up at 4am because I work mornings, my eating stopped at 9pm so it made the following morning a tad bit challenging. My poor coworkers,  (lol) pregnant and hunger do NOT go together!  Anyway, I didn't really know what to expect at this three hour test except for hunger pains. :o) It seems that you get your finger pricked three times during these three tests and it turns out I failed two out of the three tests so I was given the gestational diabetes diagnosis....

BABY BLOG #9 A question for the LADIES ONLY!

Posted By: Cindy Simmons · 7/31/2012 11:03:00 AM

This is for the LADIES ONLY! :o)
Just about to enter into my last trimester, time flies! Lots of things go through your mind during this time like making sure you are all ready for child-birth.  I do have a personal question for all of you...IF you feel like sharing your thoughts.
Breastfeeding OR bottle-feeding? I realize this is a personal decision but I'm curious as to what the majority of you did or currently do. No judgment here either way because I feel like as Mommies AND as women we should all support each other and our choices.
Anyway, because of my experience with lovely Breast Cancer, let's just say, MY choice has somewhat been made for me or "limited" if you will, as I only have a "half" option when it comes to breastfeeding. lol (Get the picture?!) Soooo, while my hope is to ...
