Redskins Player Reaching Out after Losing Son

When it comes to the Redskins we often get so wrapped up in the game it’s hard to imagine the personal battles some of these athletes fight everyday at home.

Defensive end Stephen Bowen is one of them. In 2011 he lost a son. 2 years later he and his wife Tiffany have found coping is easier… when they can provide comfort for others.

I recently sat down with the couple at their Virginia home. Click below to watch their inspirational story.

Tummy time

8 weeks old and so strong!

Also really loving this 4Moms contraption. It’s a seat that moves in a variety of motions. You can change how fast it goes and how loud the different sound effects are. Brilliant!

Look who stopped by

I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 months since I had Bob. My co-anchor Richard aka Uncle Richie came to visit today and met Bob for the first time. It was awesome catching up. I’m looking forward to our reunion come Saturday August 3rd.

Time flies

It’s been 6 weeks since my son was born and he’s already filling out 3 mos old clothing!

1 month old and growing

It amazes me how fast babies really grow. Think about it. In one month my son has grown 2 inches! That is miraculous don’t you think?  He’s not just a little more than 10 lbs and is in the 99 percentile for height. Looks like he’s following his sister’s footsteps! Cannot believe it’s already been a month. Where did time go!

Let the baby weight battle begin

Considering the fact I was asked several times during pregnancy “Twins?” (and once triplets?) it goes without saying I enjoyed the “eating what I want” part of it all. I did have some pretty bad swelling which didn’t help. When I stepped on the scale before delivering the number put me at + 75 lbs. It’s been three weeks since that day and I’m starting to feel okay enough to exercise a little. I’ve also broken a personal record: 3 weeks without enjoying one of my favorite filet-o-fish. Because I’m breastfeeding I can’t really diet but what I have done is cut out the fast food and sugar intake. I’m trying not to freak out that I still have 50 pounds to go. They say it takes longer with the second baby. I think part of it is your SO tired from caring for the first. Feel free to share what worked for you!

Delivery day

3 weeks later and all that was worth it

Adora keeps me motivated

Bringing baby home

After four days in the hospital we got to take baby Bob home. One of the most asked questions I’m getting is.. how is Adora adjusting? She’s actually doing great. She did put a teddy bear on her brother’s face trying to comfort him as he napped. We had to tell her that’s not allowed. Then we caught her reading to him. It was very sweet. Today we went to the doctor to see how he’s doing after 5 days. He had dropped 10% of his weight so we wanted to make sure he was on the right track to regaining. He was!  IMG_4225

IMG_4208We knew Adora was good with this after she offered her most prized possession- Green Bear.

First few days

It’s been a rather eventful first few days with our new son. As expected the chunker lost a little weight.  His sister is still getting use to him.  Although I’m not a new mom I am still so amazed at how little he is. The ears, the hands.. .that hair! For those asking if Adora’s Day is getting a new page for her little bro… no. He actually has his own site Bobthe4th.com
