About Us

My photo
We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.

Why can't he just see it MY way???

So... I went to the doctor (actually my midwife) last night to get my "checkup" and everything's "normal".  Couldn't hear the heartbeat with this different machine, but I'm not allowing myself to panic about this at all because everything's been just fine.  I go back in two weeks to hear the baby's heartbeat again and I'm realizing that this will actually work out better because Shaun will be able to come then!  Yay!

...but all is not perfect.  Shaun and I are in the middle of a disagreement....
...ok, so we're hardly acting like this.  Actually we're getting along just fine & he's being his wonderful self, but NOW he's DYING... I mean, just practically jumping out of his skin...

to find out what we're having.  His mum called the other day and she's also dying to find out so she can get to work making all the baby stuff she's so good at, but wants it to be just perfect for what ever little whoever we're having...

...we both are TOTALLY thinking it's more important that the baby's healthy and we would be happy as clams (where did that expression even come from???) with either a boy or a girl... or both (even though Shaun does have an awfully big soft spot for girls).

Anyhow, after his conversation with his Mum I kept thinking, "Hey there!  Who's side are you ON?  Do you actually want to find out?" and he leaned his head down and sheepishly went "I really do!"

I laughed!  "Are you serious?" Yup!  Now it's all he talks about.  Cannot WAIT to find out what we're having.  Sooo.... we have 6 more weeks to argue about it, but dont' tell him... he'll actually probably get his way. 
Honestly he asks me for SO little and gives me SO much... if he really wants this... I may just end up caving.  Ugh.  Don't tell him, though.  I'd like to keep the argument going JUST a little longer.

(typical woman!) HA!


  1. Hahahaha i kind of hope you give in to sean.I would LOVE to know whether baby fullen was a boy or girl!!! love you <3

  2. lmao... There was no fight with either of our babies. I'm a planner and there was no way I was waiting 40 WEEKS to find out whether I was buying pink or blue. hehe.

    Trust me, people who don't find out say that it takes away the surprise... but you are still meeting this tiny little, amazing, perfect person for the first time. You aren't going to be feeling jipped in the least. I promise :)

  3. Oh Marijanna! Congrats on your little bundle of blessing! A suggestion for you: You could have the Midwife or nurse write it down and seal it in an envelope. You could try to hold out together and open it on a special day, or he could just open it and share it with his mum, or she could just open it. I too found that even if you find out whether it's a boy or girl, the real suprise is meeting the person for the first time! Oh, I soooooooo have the itch for baby 3!!!!!!! ;)

  4. We wanted to know so that we could name the baby, and then refer to it by name. I felt like it made this little person inside of me more real, and allowed us to bond before she was born. Trust me, the moment he/she is born is the most amazing moment you could ever imagine, you don't need it to be a surprise.

  5. Hmmm, I am torn. We didn't find out with the first 2, but then did for the next 2. With this one we "peeked" at the ultrasound, and it looked like a boy. I think when you find out, it breaks the surprise/joy into 2 days (the day you find out the gender, and the actual birth day). But, telling people that you had the baby once it's born is not as exciting for them when they already know the sex. So maybe find out and keep it between yourselves??


Go ahead and say hello! I love comments!
