One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Quick Post Baby Update.

27 Comments 2550 views

I had a plan while on my blog maternity leave–line up a few guest posts from fellow bloggers and share updates about me and the baby when I can. Well, as we already know, not many things go exactly according to plan. We must react and adapt.

Since Little Bean decided to arrive early many of my guest post writers haven’t even had time to submit and I’m still in baby honeymoon phase–sleeping when I can and just spending time with the family.

I do plan on recording a “Week 37” Pregnancy update video this evening and telling a bit of the labor and delivery story. I have so much I want to tell you but I’m purposely staying away from the computer for long stretches so I don’t get too overwhelmed.

I did find time yesterday to post on GreenLiteBites yesterday and you MUST click here to see the picture I captured of Little Bean in one of his alert times. He melts my heart!

Other than that… Nursing is going well but he’s small and sleepy so it’s tough. We saw the Doc yesterday and will be going back on Thursday just to keep an eye on him. The Little Man is adjusting VERY well and has been amazing around the baby.

Ok, just wanted to pop in for a minute and let you know all is well. I’m signing off to crawl back in bed with the husband and watch cheesy movies. We are enjoying some time alone while Little Guy is in Kindergarten and Little Bean sleeps.

Thank you all for the well wishes. You have no idea how many times I smiled, cried and laughed reading all the comments. You guys are amazingly supportive and I appreciate you more than words can express.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Congrats!! Enjoy bonding time and extra time with hubby!!
    He will not really wakeup for a few weeks – but then will take off for sure.
    Enjoy and rest. Oh and Little Guy is now going to become Big Guy :)

    Congratulations on the arrival of Ethan! He is so adorable. Glad to hear Little Man is adjusting well to the baby and that everyone is healthy and doing well. Enjoy the break and time spent just bonding with that adorable baby!

    Enjoy this special time. Don’t get yourself stressed out, your family is your priority, and while we all enjoy the updates we also understand that you need your personal time now. Remember you should be on maternity leave!

    Enjoy the family time, Roni! I know it is wrong, but I envy you just a little bit on how awesomely small your little bean is. My sisters and I have all had 8lb+ babies (my sisters both had 10lb+), and they get big QUICK!

    Enjoy your time off! We can use this opportunity to go back and read some of your older stuff. I watched a video the other day when Ryan was like 3 years old! (

    Congrats Roni! I am so happy for you and your family. “Little Bean” is so dang cute and does look a lot like Ryan! I was pleaseantly surprised to see that you posted something new already – but make sure you enjoy your time right now! We will all be here when you are ready to come back on a regular basis ;o) I am a daily lurker and your blog does so much to inspire! Your fans can wait while you take a much needed and deserved maternity leave… enjoy every minute!!!

    Congrats and enjoy! Those itty-bitty moments go by so fast – the computer will always be there.

    Roni–enjoy your time with your new little guy. We’ll all be here when you get back:-)

    My little guy was 5 pounds 4 ounces at birth and is now a 35 pound 38″ tall and nearly 3! It goes super fast.

    What did you name the new fella?


    March 22, 2011

    So so cuteee! Enjoy these beautiful moments :)

    So happy to hear the little guy is safely here!


    March 22, 2011

    Enjoy your family! We will be here when you are ready :o)


    March 22, 2011

    Congratulations Roni!! I’m so glad that your sweet little blessing is healthy and everyone is adapting well. My son was almost 6 when my daughter was born. Since he was an “only child” for so long, I was expecting a lot of jealousy. Like your Little Man, he adapted very well.


    March 22, 2011

    Congrats Roni! I loved “going” through this pregnancy with you and are so happy for you and your family. Please know that we will be here when you are ready and you should enjoy this time with your family and new little bean!


    March 22, 2011

    Congratulations Roni! I’ve been reading you for a couple of years now, and I am so happy for you- enjoy your new little one, he is so cute! I am glad Ryan is enjoying him, I am sure he will be such a great help-my oldest was 8 when my last was born, and he was and still is a great help with her almost 3 years later!


    March 22, 2011

    Congratulations Roni! I am the mother of two little boys (6 & 9), so I know how wonderful it is to have a house full of boys. He is beautiful, just like Ryan. Enjoy every moment of these fleeting newborn days.


    March 22, 2011

    Congrats! Yep, enjoy this time. My youngest just walked down the aisle. I swear the time really does fly. He’s a beautiful baby.
