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.

Ready or not... here she comes!

So... I just recieved a phone call from my midwife, Louise... you remember Louise:

After reviewing the results of my urine test, the fact that my bloodpressure is creeping up again today and my platelet count is still low... They're inducing me... tonight.

I'm feeling a little shaky and anxious, but know that Our Lord is in control and perhaps he just wants to see how WELL I learned that "Life Lesson 101" aka: You are NOT in control. 

*Deep sigh*

I'm very excited to meet little Ava Marie and for those of you coming to the baby shower on Sunday, (stay tuned, my Mom will let you know the plans) might even recieve news during the shower that she has arrived!!!

Today we even set her baptism date for October 22nd during the 4pm Mass.  Mark your calendars, this child of God is on her way into the world and I'm sure not Shaun, I or anyone else will ever be the same! 

Thank you everyone for your prayers.  I won't have a computer, but will let you know when I get home, how everything goes.


  1. Louise delivered 5 of my babies...She is FANTASTIC! I am so excited for you and your husband...Prayers for your new blessing! You are in good hands!

  2. Let's see if I can do a little post for all of you who have been praying! First off: Thank you SO much! Your prayers mean the world to me (& Shaun & Ava) Second: Keep praying as we're not there yet & we have the most difficult to come. So far everything is slow going & both she & I are stable. You wouldn't even know I'm sick sometimes. They don't expect her to come until at least tomorrow, but I suppose that's because she knows "Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest! LOL" This is allowing Shaun & I to rest and he's tying up loose ends and getting ready. Today Jesus came to visit me (I suppose he knew I missed Mass) through the hands of a good priest friend who is stationed near my hospital and saw my name on the list. Boy was I glad when I saw him walk through the door with Holy Communion. A good reminder that I'm never alone. Tomorrow the pitocin will be upped more, so hopefully she'll be here soon safe & sound. I had a dream last night that I met her & she was beautiful. Thank you again for your prayers & keep praying!!!!


Go ahead and say hello! I love comments!
