Speed blogging...

Well, let's play a game of catch up…speed racer style!

T turned 2 on the last blog, so since then we have…

been blessed with another sweet pregnancy…with a few interesting surprises!

I wouldn't have been so silly if I knew that the next day I would be going into labor!

We had another baby boy…Nate 7-11-11. He was born 6 wks and 1 day early after 4 wks of bed rest (interesting concept with a 2 yr old).

Pat finished another year of Residency (3 1/2 yrs left which includes Interventional Fellowship).

Overcame the winter with monthly Synagis shots for Nate through March.

Accepted the calling to become one of the MOMs ministry leaders at Pinelake with 3 other wonderful ladies.

Toby and Nate turn 3 and 1…wowzers!

Pat finishes another year of Residency…2 1/2 yrs left

Started the new MOMs year at Pinelake!

Currently on a month long training trip for Pat in D.C. (trust me you'll get entertained)…

To be continued…

Happy Birthday to our sweet little T-tot! He is such an answered prayer. We pray God blesses you and protects you as you grow into a precious little boy.

2 days old...

...and now 2 yrs old!

A Mother’s Prayer (HANNAH'S SONG) Words by Rachel Aldous
Music by John Mandeville

My sweet baby on loan from above.
No better treasure could I more love.
I stand here beside your bed as I pray
I lay my hand on your head and I say:

May you grow up to serve Him
all of your days.
May He lead you and guide you
in all of your ways.
May His hand bless your future with
friendships that last.
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast

I stare in wonder at your tiny frame.
Just to think that God knows you by name.
He knows every hair on your beautiful head.
He knows your thoughts before they are said.

May you grow up to serve Him
all of your days
May He lead you and guide you
in all of your ways.
May His Hand bless your future with
friendships that last.
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast.

May God grant you peace
in the midst of a storm.
May God give you strength even
when you’re forlorn.
May you answer the door when
Jesus comes knocking.
May wisdom guide when
your mouth is talking.
May discretion protect you
and keep you pure.
May you never stumble
or fall for a lure.
May your heart remain humble
to the very end.
May uprightness and truth
be what you defend.
May the world not ensnare
or change who you are.
May the light that's within you
shine like the stars.
May angels surround you
body, spirit, mind.
May favor and peace be yours to find.
May rejection and pain
never reach you.
May your spirit grow bold
for what you’re called to.

May you grow up to serve Him
all of your days
May He lead you and guide you
in all of your ways
May His Hand bless your future with
friendships that last.
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast.

As you rest in God’s care I will rest, too.
Knowing that Jesus is watching over you.

Zipp ah dee doo dah zipp ah dee day

Keeping true to my previous post...I have been wifin, mommin, makeup chic-in, and super duper paintin! (No sewin...It's only been a few days people)!

Yep! I have a painting business (acrylics...that is) and it's going great! You need to check out "Art by Fe" on facebook. I am juggling the painting thing and makeup thing these days because...well...the entertainment industry just isn't as busy as it once was. I know...tear! It's sad, but I have to make grub somehow and I might as well be having fun...and well...art is fun (to me)!

Otherwise, Pat is doing awesome! Have I told y'all lately how amazing he is as a husband and a daddy?? Well he is unbelievably superb! He works his everlivin' tail off working as a (almost 2nd year) Radiology resident. Then, comes home and loves on/plays with Toby, helps me around the house, gives T a bath, and reads to him every night (baths and books are their "man time"). I know y'all are wondering what I do! Don't even go there...you all know that I am cooking or catching up on something I didn't get done that day...especially since this Art stuff has gotten busier. Or, I am RESTING because I can! ALL of you mommas should at some point and time of the day too!

Toby is just a growin! He is talking constantly and cracks us up every chance he can get! He has been recently introduced to "time out" and has done amazing with it! He is realizing...hmmmm...maybe I should stop what I am doing before they put me over there against the wall. And...I am glad he is learning that! He is honestly (minus the few "timeouts" a week) is the sweetest, most loving little boy ever! He loves to hug and gives sugars ALL the time! It's priceless!

Me, I am seeing a tiny speck of light at the end of the tunnel with this nausea thing. WOW! It's been a rough go this time! It's ALL worth it though! We should be finding out what we're having in the next few weeks...no worries I will keep you posted!

Hope your time in the Robbins Roost has been entertaining! We are loving this beautiful day (that the LORD has made...I will rejoice...I will rejoice...and be glad...) O sorry got carried away! Pat and T are outside swinging and I am typing to you...this is a problem! Bye everyone!

Well...I am trying!

So...as you can tell...ummm...it's been a year since the last blog! NO EXCUSES...I have failed! In the mean time, Toby has turned one, Pat finished his intern year (thank you Jesus!), and we are pregnant with baby #2(14 wks)!

I promise:
1. NOT to promise daily blogs
2. to attempt to keep you updated weekly
3. to keep you entertained with our crazy life
4. to talk about non-sense, some or most of the time
5. Last, but not least, to offer you insight to the life of a lovin wife, obsessed mommy, preggo (wish I wasn't so dad-gum nauseous)chick, penny pinchin' fanatic, decorator-lover, sewing-learner, Art maker, and Makeup applier!!!

Wowie...what a week!

TGIF bliggidy bloggers! How was your week? I hope it was great!

I always hate complaining about a hectic life because I realize that 99% (I hope I never meet the other 1%-because they're probably from another planet!) of the world also shares my pain, but I will complain now anyway!

So, 1st of all...it was awesome to have Pat off for 3 days straight Saturday, Sunday, and Monday...but it was not so great that he woke up a little after 1:00 a.m. Tuesday morning with a horrible disgusting stomach virus. He continued this bathroom party until 6:00 a.m.! Needless to say-he looked like a colorless, floaty object...YIKES! So, of course...I was thinking...LORD please don't let T get this...didn't much care if I did, but definitely didn't want T to. Especially since Pat had to call into work on Tuesday and hang out around us. Mr. T and I decided to make a Walmart run for the groceries (haven't been taking T shopping because I have been spoiled with mothers morning out). Overall, it was a successful mission! I rescued my poor husband with some gatorade and that's all he had ALL DAY LONG besides a half of a piece of toast!

The blessing is that T did not get the nasty bathroom party virus and neither did I! SIGH! Also, Pat was able to go back to work on Wednesday and felt much better.

Pat and I were able to go see Shane and Shane (since he was feeling better) with Pat's brother and his wife (SSOOOOOO GOOD!)

Also, on Wednesday...I got a call for WORK! BLESSING! But...it was for Thursday...and it was in Memphis...and I usually have no child care...

The blessing is that my mom I had a dr. appt. in Jackson and was already staying with us because we were going to the concert and there was supposed to be another job on Thursday that had gotten canceled, so she was a LIFESAVER and stayed with Toby while I traveled to Memphis to work and traveled back all in 12 hrs:) We were also able to hang out on Wednesday and had lunch at steak escape (yummy) and got her hair cut. It's always good hanging out with her because usually when we see each other-I am headed out the door for work and when I get in she is headed out the door to go home.

Thanks mom for helping with T and thanks dad for going without the wifey for two days:)

Even though T didn't get the virus...he now has a runny nose! Where does he get that snot from! Oh well, he's not running fever...NOW...and we pray he gets over the snotty nose quickly!

Thursday, while I was working I got another job offer for next week, but I have child care issues for that day! But, we NEED it badly!

So, as of right now we are still trying to figure that one out, but the blessing is that I found someone else that can watch Toby when my mom can't and she's an awesome friend...and she understands and accepts the "craziness" of my "fly by the seat of your pants" job. HUGE BLESSING!

The blessing in general...is that even when we wonder, worry, or doubt...GOD always provides-it may not be a blessing, but it's an answer and when we pray for GOD's answer...he ALWAYS provides!

Are any of you wondering, worrying, or doubting about something right now? If I were a betting chic...I would say we all are...about something. I pray GOD provides an answer for you today:)

Yesterdays long awaited accomplishment and todays snow stories

Well yesterday I finally finished a painting for the living room that I have been wanting to do for a while now. I like it and hope to do more for the house...pics to follow.

And...today...I have bundled me and lil T up and taken some pics outside of the beautiful snow...unfortunately Pat is on call...hopefully it'll stick so Pat and T can play in it in the morning.

I have also...thrown on the "fake" ugg boots and gone outside to fix our direct tv...and found that our dish was FULL of snow so I came (almost falling and dying several times!) in got a broom and tried to reach it on the roof (don't try this at home ladies) and in the process of doing so took a nice spill into the snow...laughed at myself AFTER looking around and making sure no one saw me...then discovered the perfectly imprinted broom in the snow! Ridiculous, but after my fall I attempted to throw the broom at the dish and after almost getting stuck...it cleared out a little and now it works! Just so you know...my child was sleeping in our warm home...in his room directly under the dish...so of course I was trying to be quiet...if that's possible when you are chunking a broom in the air! To add to it...when I fell...the monitor went flying too...I eventually found it...made sure T was still asleep and then began doctoring my wrist(which is fine)! whhheeeehhh!

Now, our pine tree in the backyard looks like its mope-in today...and it has had 2 LARGE limbs fall from it!

And, its still snowin!

Pic from Christmas...I need to download all my recent ones...another "to do"

I debated back and forth for a while about taking T to mothers morning out. He really needed to be around other little ones and I really needed to run errands, do bills, and any other stuff that is a little difficult when you have a little one with you. Don't get me wrong...it CAN be done...if I couldn't these past 8 months would be unsuccessful for sure!!! I don't like messing up his schedule....and it's just a little difficult to do those quick errands like dry cleaning...I can't leave him in the car running! I know...I am one of those moms that thinks my kid is going to be abducted with my car...what are the chances???? You never know, so I decided to put him in mothers morning out.Today is the 2nd time Toby has been to mmo. So, I am hoping he is doing well...I miss him, but I know it's great for me and for little T. It's only about 5 mins. away...Park Place Bapt. is where I decided to take him. Their price was the best, their people are precious, and the location can't be beat...right across from Walmart! I am excited about getting the shopping done, the business papers/banking kept up, the big cleaning projects at home (always stay straight) like mopping, cleaning fans, baseboards, etc. Right now I suppossed to be doing bills and banking, so I will need to zip it up!

What about you? Do you guys leave your baby/doggie:) in the car when you run in somewhere...with the car on? Am I a little paranoid?

Have a great day and I hope God blesses you in your day...either it be a poopie day or a perky day:)

Uncle Russ and Aunt Meg

Our friends Russ and Megan came over for dinner tonight! We had garlic lemon chicken...yummo! It was great to see them-Russ and Pat met through church and med school and Meg and I met through our hubbies. She is the #1 bloggity blogger of all time, so I am trying to make her proud...it's only taken about a year to start this up again. Pat and Russ are both going to be Radiologists, but...sadly Russ and Meg are moving to Memphis in a couple of months for Russ to continue his training! I am bummed to say the least. Megan knows exactly how to console me when these crazy schedules of theirs start to get a little or a lot annoying. I love them and know that they will always be a part of our family. And, we pray that soon...very soon they have a bunch of mini Rus-egans runnin around...I know the Lord is going to bless them for sure in all they do! Love you guys:)

Here's a quick photo montage of our fun times (that we have pics of) with Russ and Megan...

well well well look who decided to blog today!

Hi bloggidy bloggers! I would love to catch you up on the past year of my life, but it'll take too long...so hope you can settle for a few monthly highlights!

March 09 - Pat matched in Jackson for his Intern year and Radiology years:)

April 09 - Pat, myself, Bella(our doggie), and my gigantor belly (aka Toby) moved from our home in Jackson (Fondren) to Pearl (Patrick Farms)...we love love love our new home:)

May 09 - Well this one is a doozy...1st of all Pat was off this entire month...so I had a baby shower at our house ummmmm 3 wks after moving in...don't try this people! Then...all in 7 days time we had family come in(wed.) for Pat's long coat ceremony(thurs.) and graduation(fri.) and for fun hang out time (sat.-mon.) and early early on Tues. Toby knocked on my belly (really hard btw) and said hey mmmmooooommmmmmmmaaaaaaa) its time to play and boy did he!!!! It was a great labor until he decided to try to leave my womb sideways and so we had to do a good ole c section (I would go through all of it again times 10 just to see his beautiful face:)) O and my sweet mom-in-law drove all the way from the coast every weekend to help with T and still does!!! I love it!

June 09 - Pats still off this month too...he was a HUMONGOUS help with little T and me (of course he is the best hubby in the universe!) I started back to work here and there when it came in

July 09 - Pat started his intern year! Hematology - Yikes and YUK!!!

August 09 - Toby just a growin and Pats just a workin on his Radiology month and I am just a workin too!

September 09 - Toby got dedicated and wore the same christening gown that Pat, his mom, his aunt, his brothers, and his cousins wore! Super sweet! Pat was on his ER month. Fe was a workin chic...tons of commercials and weddings!

October 09 - We were able to get together with my moms side of the family for a bro/sis reunion. Lindsey (our friend from med school) came in for a visit. Unfortunately, Fe was workin and didn't get to vistit with Lindz a ton...even missed out on the Canton Flea Market...work is good though:) keeps us eatin! Mr. T was a monkey for his 1st Halloween...boy was he a cute one! Pat was on his 1st month of UMC General medicine and that's stinky(well the schedule is!)

November 09 - Got to see Pat's entire family for Thanksgiving! Toby was able to meet his only surviving great grandmother on Pat's side...how sweet...she just recently lost her sweet life on January 25th:( She was such a blessing and we are so happy that T was able to meet her and get a pic with her too! T also started cereal along with bon appetite momma style. Pat had a week vacation during his clinic month and so that's how we were able to go to TX to visit the fam.

December 09 - Fe was workin on several Baptist Hospital commercials and various other projects. Pat was on UMC General medicine...poopie schedule, but it happens no more...yeepeee!!! T started his 1st foods this month...we made them and are still going strong with it...save money and is very convenient! T had his 1st Christmas...and his 1st sickness! Yikes! And his 1st fall(s)...doesn't sound like a good Christmas to him I am sure, but at least it's memorable! T was nice enough to give his crud to momma too! It was awesome to have Uncle G, Uncle Seth, Aunt LB, and Grand Mary all here for Christmas too...what a blessing:)



almost done...

here we go...

January 2010!!!!!!!!!!!!!!- WHOLE NEW YEAR! Pat was working on his first month of VA General medicine...schedule wasn't as bad...one month down and one more VA month to go! Mr. T is tapering off on the nursing...and is really getting around! He turned 8 months this month and is around 22 lbs. momma mia!!! Fe was around home more this month, but it's ok...more time with T and good ending months for 09 keeps us safe...for now. T also started yogurt this month...yummo:) He says buh bye and waves, and mutters momma and dada too! Of course, as we said earlier we did lose Pat's gma too, but we know she is no longer suffering...praise God! Well...and on a brighter note the SAINTS won the NFC championship!

February 10 - Who said what...Who dat wins the SUPER BOWL!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Gotta go...the worlds about to end...the aints aint aints no mo buddddyyyyyy! ...he were are on the 8th and work is steadily picking up for Fe...Pats on the poopiest month yet(as far as schedule goes)...Renal! We are already done with one week of it and 2.5 to go!

You are up to date...no major details, but hey you got the point, right!?! It can be summed up easily by saying 2009 was eventful! What do you think? How was your 2009? Good year or bad? I say every year is good because the LORD gives us all we go through...he gives us trials to learn from and blessings to float us along!
