|Cousins Cree Hardrict & Aden Housley|
The two have been doing mommy gushing overdrive lately. Tamera wrote a poem to her son and shared it on the sisters’ website
and then in return, and inspired by the love, Tia, in turn wrote her sis a letter.
Twin Love! awww!
really “real” to the average TV viewer. Many people cannot relate to the decisions and ostentatious lives that some of the cast members of various shows live.
children traditionally are and can be quite relatable. Child birth is the same for most woman and the challenges of raising a baby in its earliest part of its life is common across the line. Case in point, I’ve been catching up on my
favorite Style channel reality TV shows Guiliana and Bill and Tia and Tamera
and am discovering that, personally, I share plenty of the baby-related themes with the cast
members on those shows.
Guiliana and Bill, there is this scene where Guiliana Rancic can be seen admonishing her mom,
asking her if she washed her hands before handling the baby.
culture where it would be considered an insult to ask people to wash and/or use
hand sanitizer before touching your child. My parents asked me not to demand handwashing of all guests that come
visit the baby. However, with my first
son, I just stood my ground and asked anyway, and of everyone, including my own
parents. My mom is a nurse so she got it and my dad just figured I was being
the typical 21st century modern mom. Whatever, I was not about to
risk exposing my newborn to any germs or possible infection at that early stage
in his life knowing that he was still developing his immunity then.
where she expressed her feelings about not feeling a bit “less than” because
she was unable to deliver her child the “natural” way, meaning vaginal. For me
as well, I totally bought into the mindset and thinking that unless you
delivered the way ancient women did, you never truly experienced child birth as
“nature” intended. I would secretly harbor discontent and hope that women who
gave birth after me also had a c-section because I couldn’t stand the idea of
them being able to fulfill that wish I could not. Sounds mean but it’s honest.
With my second, I was well on the way to delivering him via VBAC (vaginal birth
after Ceasearean) even though my male doctor didn’t really like my decision and
provided no support for the process. But for the fact his cord was wrapped
tightly around his neck and his heart rate decelerated tremendously with each
push, I would’ve done it. C-Section #2 for me. Finally, with my third, my daughter,
I barely felt the contractions and very well could have had her vaginally as
well even though I had a scheduled C given the possible complications of hemorrhaging
and medical liability concerns, which told my practice that a scheduled Cesarean
was it for me. What a bummer.
month and me now dealing with the stresses of raising kids, dealing with homework
projects, family outings and trying to incorporate enrichment activities in
their lives to supplement their schooling, there is no longer any room or time
in my brain or life to lament on the way they came into the world. Nonetheless,
I could wholly relate to anyone who harbored those feelings after having a
with a birth plan in the last episode of Tia and Tamera. As a fellow control freak, I could totally
appreciate her feelings of wanting to have a birth plan, focused on no
pain-medication and for a vaginal delivery. Many first time moms create one so
they, their practitioners, midwife, nurses, doctors and spouse all know their
wishes for labor and delivery. A plan can include as much detail or little as the
mom-to-be wants but at the end of the day Tia Mowry was correct in her summation
that the baby will do what it wants to do. Cords wrapped around the neck, low amniotic fluid, preeclampsia
complications, spikes or dips in heart rates, breech position, prolonged labor,
past due date etc happen and are beyond our control. But I drew up my plan with
my first with the very open mind that things could change that would force the
plans to change and I was fine with that. And sadly, by the looks of the first
pics of the baby’s birth which Tamera revealed through an In Touch magazine spread, it appears her son
was born via C-Section eventually. (Adam is photographed in OR room scrubs and
head cover holding the baby while standing in a hospital operating room and not
a warm wood-paneled cozy labor and delivery room. )
via her preferred method.
teaser that Tina Campbell’s pregnancy will feature majorly in it. Can’t wait!
You can learn and relate to reality tv baby themes, after all.
He was one of the most anticipated babies to be born this autumn and now he is here (albeit 2 weeks past his October 30 due date) and his mom Tamera Mowry-Housley shared his first photo on her Twitter account today and he is a CUTIE PIE!!
Aden John Tanner Housley, first kid to Tamera and her husband Adam Housley was born Monday, November 12.
“Chillin with my grandma Darlene today!” Tamera tweeted about Aden’s first days on earth. “She hooked me up with a cool outfit.”
Sister Tia Mowry-Hardrict was also beaming. “Yay!! I can finally now say! I am an auntie!!!,” she tweeted. “Can we say chunk munk!! So Happy & blessed! Cree now has a play date!”
Sweet! We’re gonna miss “bumpwatching” Tamera but Aden is worth it!
Did Tia Mowry reveal that her twin sister Tamera Mowry-Housley has finally delivered her much anticipated first child with husband Adam Housley? Maybe.
Tamera, whose son was due back on October 30, has been missing from Twitter since Sunday, November 4. It is conceivable that she has gone gone into labor and may have already had her baby.
Yesterday, in the middle of election melee late last night and as Americans were celebrating (or sad about, depending on their political leanings) the reelection of President Barack Obama into office, Tia tweeted, “God is Good.”
Could she had been rejoicing Obama’s reelection or the delivery of her nephew and quietly waiting on her sister (or her sister’s publicist) to finally reveal the news?
Recall, recent bump watch mavens Megan Fox waited a couple weeks before announcing her delivery news and Neve Campbell never revealed the news at all but was simply busted by paparazzi at the park with her baby boy at least a month after delivering.
Each women said they wanted some quite time and privacy with their baby and to avoid the scrutiny and prying eyes of the public and press before making their official announcement.
Sounds like a great plan! Time will tell.
- Get Vaccinated: Vaccination is the first step in flu prevention. However, even after getting vaccinated, you should also follow simple steps to help prevent the spread of the flu virus – and other potentially harmful bacteria and viruses – in the office and at home.
- Wash Hands Frequently: Wash hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds (the time it takes to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice).
- Do the Elbow Cough: Cough and sneeze into your elbow instead of your hands to help prevent the spread of germs by touch.
- Follow Good Health Guidelines: Eat right, exercise and get plenty of sleep to help boost your body’s ability to fight the effects of colds and flu.
Clorox has also teamed up with Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Tia Mowry who is helping her 1-year old son Cree stave off the flu by disinfecting frequently touched surfaces around their home, like doorknobs, light switches and faucets.
