Pregnant Again

Well to anyone who doesn't know yet... Im pregnant again!!! I am just 11 weeks along but its already been harder than the last one. I don't remember being this sick before, but that might be because I could always lay down when I wanted. Obviously, my life has changed quite a bit since the last pregnancy so I am always going no matter how I feel. My due date is April 21st! Cant wait to find out what it is!!! (even though Im pretty positive its a boy )

Im a lame blogger

I was listening to Ashley talk about blogging today and I remember that I had one! Im so bad at it... which is weird because I love writing. I guess certain things just fall by the wayside when you are overwhelmed with work and a baby. I decided if I am going to neglect something, I would rather it be facebook, so Im going to try and start blogging on a regular basis for a little me time.
Stetson is going to be 4 months in four days & a month from today, Clancy and I have been married for one whole year!!! Time flies by soooo very fast. I feel so old, yet Im so young. I turn 21 four days after our wedding anniversary. It WOULD have been a very exciting day but Im guessing it will be spent at home with Clancy and my little baby boy playing Burnout or something.Which is probably more fun than anything else I would have been doing before my grown up life came to be. Speaking of Burnout... Clancy is asking me to come play it with him since neither of us work tommorrow morning (well Clancy works at 12 but thats not really morning) so I will write later :).

Hes finally here!!!!! Stetson Blake Stockton was born on March 30th after about 22 hours of induced contractions. He was 8.4lbs and 21 inches!!! Both Clancy and I have never felt so complete before this bundle of joy entered our lives. Its almost as if a part of him as always been with us just waiting patiently to come into our life. When it finally hit me that he was actually mine and that he wasnt going anywhere I knew that being a mother was what i was born to do. We are just so grateful that God entrusted a life in our hands.  
Each day is a new adventure where Clancy and I learn something new about our little Stetson. I cant even believe what a good baby he is. He never cries unless he is hungry or getting his diaper changed. He also sleeps SOOOOO much!! He wouldn't even wake up during the night if i didn't wake him up and make him eat! He loves his daddy's voice. Anytime Clancy talks or sings , Stetson never takes his eyes off of him. My only complaint is Stetsons habit to spray poop everywhere when I am changing him. You might think I'm exaggerating but today i was in the middle of changing him and i had to jump out of the way when a stream of poop came shooting out and hit the diaper genie, guitar and a few feet of carpet. I wouldn't have believed it was possible if I hadn't of seen it. Needless to say, a steel brush and lots of carpet cleaner was the fate my mother thankfully shared with me for the next hour. Besides that, he has been an angel and i couldn't enjoy motherhood more!!! I'm sure there will be a lot more stories to share as the days, weeks, and years go by.

Here I go....!

Well, I have been told numerous times that I need to start a blog now that I'm married and having a child  (i think those are the requirements :) ).  My name was Melissa Hale up until recently. I got married to Clancy Stockton on August 26th, 2008. It was the most wonderful and peaceful day of my life. Two months later we renewed our vows at a covenant ceremony surrounded by our loving family and friends. The love and peace I felt on our wedding day came flooding back and I was reminded of how grateful I am for my perfect husband. Married life has been so beautiful. We have our tough times, but there is no one I would rather go through tough times with than my husband. We were blessed with the news that our little family is going to grow on or around April fourth! Yes, Stetson Blake Stockton... a baby boy. Clancy is more thrilled than anyone could even imagine. Hes pretty proud of the fact that out of the three oldest brothers, he was the one that made a boy ha ha. I just keep telling him that we will keep having children until I get a girl... although I'm not saying as often now that I am seven and a half months pregnant because it seems more like a threat to me than him. Either way we are so exited for our little addition!!!
